Sounds like a great recipe! Soups can be a great help, especially if they're loaded with veggies.

While wanting to decrease my calorie intake while keeping my proteins and veggies up.....I forgot how wonderful and low calorie homemade soups can be.

Yesterday I made a huge pot of homemade chicken and veggie -- equal part chicken, celery, carrots, and a whole can of canned tomatoes, and a slice of onion in a pot with chicken bullion. I just added pepper and thyme for flavor. I added a tiny bit of water, but wanted this soup to have very little broth. Wow! Delicious!

Here's the nutrition on a 8 oz serving: (I calculated on 2oz each: chicken, carrots, celery, tomatoes - with a tiny bit of broth)
