Chicken Pot Pie Soup

It's been raining for the past few days in Texas, so obviously we need a soup recipe. Never mind the fact that it's still in the 80s to 90s... Rain means soup!

Chicken Pot Pie has always been one of the most requested meal for birthday celebrations in the Mueller household. So when I found this recipe, you could say I was a little bit excited. It's a healthy take on a family tradition, and I love it! It's also a great source of healthy carbs, which is great for those of us who workout a lot!
