[Recipe] Skinny Chicken Pot Pie Soup

It’s been cold and snowy here in Chicago, so what better way to warm up than with some chicken pot pie? This lightened up alternative is just as good as mom’s but with fewer calories. I made mine with Grand’s Flaky Layers Biscuits and it turned out dee-licious! Mmm.
