Sometimes you just can't eat any more zero point taco soup, am I right?!? This chicken and couscous soup may be your salvation. Yes it's 3 points instead of zero but it's a big serving and a different flavor for when you just need a break!
Soups are an excellent item for meal prepping for success on Weight Watchers. They make a big batch, are easy to keep low in points and store well. I always feel like I do better on my points when I have a soup ready to go.
1 cup Israeli couscous (also called Pearl couscous)
1 zucchini, diced
1 can of corn
3 ribs of celery, diced
1 cup diced green beans
juice of half a lemon (optional - I love it with lemon but my husband less so, you can suit your taste)
6 cups of water
2 tsp of Better than bullion chicken base (or you can use FF chicken broth iinstead of the water + bouillon)
1 tsp celery seed
1 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp onion powder
1 tsp salt
fresh ground pepper to taste
2-3 chicken breasts (depending on size)
Place all ingredients in a 6 quart Instant Pot with the chicken breasts on top. Ensure there is enough water to fully cover all of the ingredients. Cook on manual, high pressure for 10 minutes.
When the time goes off, allow to naturally release a few minutes (to avoid soup spraying out) and then quick release the pressure. After you open the pot, take the chicken breasts out and shred them using two forks and add the shredded chicken back to the pot of soup and stir.
I make variations of this soup a lot, using different zero point vegetables. You can also make this recipe using chicken thighs, because they are smaller you probably need 3 thighs. If you are doing WW, using thighs will be higher in points.
