Tomato Bisque with Chicken

Really good with smoked chicken.

Tomato Bisque with Chicken

½ c. finely chopped onion

½ tsp garlic powder

¼ c. all purpose flour

2 (14 oz) cans diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning

1 can chicken broth, reduced sodium

2 tsp Italian seasoning

1 tsp dried parsley

2 c. shredded roasted chicken

¼ c. fat free half and half

2 TB whipped cream cheese

Salt and pepper, to taste

Spray medium saucepan with cooking spray and add onion and garlic powder. Cook until onion is soft.  Sprinkle flour over the onion and stir to combine. Add tomatoes, broth, and spices. Bring to a boil and cook until tomatoes are softened, 8-10 minutes. Pour into blender (no more than half full) and pulse to puree. (Could also use an immersion blender or blend the tomatoes and onion before putting them in the saucepan. I left mine as is.) Return to pot and add chicken, half and half, cream cheese, salt and pepper.

Yield: 3 large servings.
