Amish Style Chicken and Corn Soup (Ww Core)

"Found this one in a Weight Watchers cookbook, and modified it to suit the WW Core program. A great way to use up leftover chicken and to provide a good flavorful lunch soup quickly. What sets this apart from so many other chicken and corn soups is the absence of dairy and the use of saffron to give the dish a distinct color, aroma and flavor. (3 Points)"

Ready In:




  • Add the broth, chicken, onion, chopped celery and saffron to a large saucepan. Bring to a boil. Cover and reduce to a simmer for 30 minutes. During simmering time, you may want to gently skim any foam that comes to the top of the broth.
  • Take the chicken from the pan and reserve to the side while it cools. Strain broth removing all bits. Return to the sauce pan.
  • Take the now cooked chicken, remove the bones and dice into small (1/4) inch cubes. Add to the broth along with the cooked noodles, corn, celery and parsley.
  • Heat the soup until all ingredients are hot.
  • Serve.

  1. Tastes like Progresso. Don't skip Step 1, it really adds to the flavor. Next time I will add carrots to the broth in Step 1, and add finely chopped carrots and UNcooked noodles in Step 3. My 9-year old girl who eats like a bird went back for seconds and told me to make it again. I calculated 3 WW pts.
  2. This soup is very tasty. When I started making it I discovered that I was out of celery so I added more carrot to the soup and I ground some celery seed to add a bit of celery flavour. I also added some mushrooms and used cut up whole wheat spaghetti. Thanks for posting. I'll be making this again. Next time I will definitely use celery, though.


<p>I come from a long line of wonderful cooks and doing my best to hold up that tradition. My great-grandparents owned a coffee shop; my Nana was also a great cook and started the tradition of baking around the holidays, both cookies and fruitcakes. After she died, now a decade ago, our family decided to continue in her honor. The picture above is my mother's (Chef Hot Pans) dining room table just before we packed up our Christmas cookie trays. More that 20 kinds of cookies, many of which are from 'Zaar recipes. <br /> <br />I myself am an amateur cook with a penchant for ethnic foods and spice. Currently reforming my menu in favor of healthy dishes lower in fat with lots of grains and vegetables. My favorite cuisines are Mexican, Southwestern and North African. <br /> <br /> <br />Some of my favorite public cookbooks include:</p> <li>ladypit's <a href=> WW Core Recipes I Have Tried </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>shirl(j)831's <a href=> Can this really be lowfat??? </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>julesong's <a href=> Cooking Light Recipes </a> </li> <p>&nbsp;</p> <li>mariposa13's <a href=> WW &amp; Lowfat Recipes </a> </li> <p><br /><img src= alt=Dirty /> <br /><a href=;current=kitchen-special-hot2-1.jpg target=_blank><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /></a> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=FFF#2 width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= alt=Image /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Adopted /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=Photobucket /><img src= border=0 alt=PAC /><img src= border=0 alt=Photo /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=/ /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /><img src= alt=ZWT3 /><img src= alt=width=50% /> <br /><img src= alt=/ /></p>
