This is a lower calorie version of Lemon-Chicken Velvet Soup, from TOH Cooking for 2 publication, spring 2008. Insetad of the heavy cream, I subbed milk and fat-free cream cheese, making it a little more "brothy" but very tasty nonetheless. You can substitute canned white meat chicken breast for the chicken here.
