Weight Watchers Chicken and Barley Soup

Ingredients

  • 1red onion, thinly sliced
  • 1 garlic clove, minced
  • ¾ pound (2 small) sweet potatoes, peeled and chopped
  • 2 small carrots, halved lengthwise and thinly sliced
  • 2 small celery stalks with leaves, thinly sliced
  • ½ cup quick-cooking barley
  • ¾ teaspoon fresh thyme leaves
  • 8 cups reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • ¼ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon black pepper
  • 2 cups small broccoli florets
  • ½ pound skinless boneless chicken breast, cut into 2 × ¼-inch strips

Instructions

  1. Spray a nonstick Dutch oven with canola nonstick spray and set over medium heat. Add the onion and cook, stirring frequently, until softened, about 4 minutes. Add the garlic and cook, stirring frequently, until fragrant, about 30 seconds.
  2. Stir in the potatoes, carrots, celery, barley, and thyme; cook, stirring occasionally, until the vegetables begin to soften, about 4 minutes. Add the broth, salt, and pepper; bring to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the vegetables are softened and the barley is cooked through, about 15 minutes.
  3. Stir in the broccoli and chicken; return to a boil. Reduce the heat and simmer until the broccoli is fork-tender and the chicken is cooked through, about 5 minutes.
