BBQ Chicken Pizza Soup

I have been on a bit of a cilantro kick lately. 

It is really a delicious addition to a lot of recipes.

I bought a bunch of cilantro when I tried making Thai Chicken Pizza, which was beyond yummy!, and I did not want to waste what I had left, so I tried some other recipes that called for cilantro.  I am really falling in love with the stuff.

One of the recipes I tried was BBQ Chicken Pizza soup.  When I found this recipe, I thought is sounded sort of intriguing and good at the same time.  I am so glad I tried it.  Our whole group liked it.

It was really good.  I mean really good.  I scooped out mostly "the stuff" for my little beanes and they all liked it.  Even String beane at it, which was nothing short of a miracle. 

I found the original recipe here, and altered it just a tad.

You should really make this for yourself.  It is so good!

2 Tablespoons oil
1 medium onion, finely chopped
2 Tablespoons minced garlic
11 oz can corn with peppers, drained
2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and shredded.  I baked mine in the oven.
1 1/2 Cups Chicken Broth
1/2 Cup BBQ Sauce
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon Garlic Salt
1/2 Cup fresh cilantro leaves, chopped

Heat oil into a medium pot over medium heat.  When hot, saute onions for 5 minutes or until softened.  Stir in garlic, corn and chicken breast; mix to combine.  Pour in chicken broth, BBQ sauce, salt, pepper, garlic salt and cilantro leaves.   Reduce heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes or until ready to serve.  Garnish each bowl with a fresh sprig of cilantro.

This serves 4-6 people. 

Here is a picture a little bit closer up. 

This soup is also pretty low fat and calories.  All in all, a great soup for those of  us not doing so good on our New Year's resolutions! KWIM?

I am linking up at Metamorphosis Monday and these other Awesome Parties!

  9. You might also consider investing in a franchise as well. Although franchises are common with retail businesses they however do exist in many industries and markets including manufacturing. So check around for franchise opportunities in 2012 they could be a viable source of business ventures.
