Creamy chicken and bacon alfredo soup

January 11, 2016

It was a cold windy and snowy day, the strong gust sounds just made me thankful to be inside cozy and warm.. and what goes better with that feeling than a nice bowl of soup ๐Ÿ™‚ I love making soup in the crock pot, it makes everything so easy and a quick clean up afterwards! I wanted a soup that felt like a good meal..so I made this delicious creamy chicken alfredo soup and it does not disappoint! Makes 6-1 cup servings at only 4 smart points each.

Ingredients
  • 2 cups chicken broth

  • 1 can (284ml) low fat cream of chicken soup
  • ¾ cup light alfredo sauce
  • 1 cup almond milk (can substitute with 1% but be mindful of points increasing)

  1. Cook your slices of bacon on stove top, drain and crumble bacon.
  2. Plug in crock pot and set to high.

  5. Mix in your crumbled bacon.
  6. Leave on high for 30 minutes, then turn to low and simmer for 1.5 hours.

    I’m making the soup right now and it isn’t thickening up and I’m worried I did something wrong. Is yours thick?

      Hi, the soup doesn’t thicken as it’s cooking.. It should not be super runny but won’t be a thick soup either.. Hope you enjoyed it

    Thanks I thickened it up with some flour and water. It was a huge hit with my husband and son. It helped my husband thaw out after snow blowing out driveway! Love your recipes! I made 6 or 7 things already!

    Hi! Love your blog! I just joined WW and can’t wait to make your recipes. I was wondering…what Alfredo brands are the best to buy for this recipe? Thank you!

      Hi, Thank you for your kind words.. Depends where you live, I’m in Canada and buy a President choice brand, I would just look for a “light” calorie reduced brand .. Good luck on your journey ๐Ÿ™‚

    What if I make my own Alfredo sauce? I can’t seem to ever find a good tasting sauce from a jar here! I’m in that US. I don’t like bottled alfredo. Do you think it will add many more points?

      Hi there, probably not.. I think you would be ok to give it the same point value ๐Ÿ™‚

    We tried this recip for dinner last week. I had enough points to pour it over whole wheat pasta. It was great!

      Oh that sounds like an awesome idea ๐Ÿ™‚ Glad you enjoyed it!!

    Could I use fat free half and half instead of almond milk?

      Reply Drizzle February 18, 2017 at 1:25 pm

      I think that would be ok, it might even make it a bit more creamier ๐Ÿ™‚
