Problems with greasy chicken noodle soup

Since I was put on a liquid diet, my DH has bent over backwards to help me to tolerate the foods. due to all my stomach problems. I love chicken noodle soup, so we bought some in cans so I could just heat them up during the day. To me, it has a greasy type soup; you can just see the grease on the top. My DH tried a number of ways to help, and finally came up with one. He uses the spice Adobo, Shakes about 3 shakes in a pot with the soup and it is awsome.

May be just me, but I know people at church tried it and loved it also.

Another good chicken soup is the dry soup mixes in the soup aisle. They are easy and very tasty.

If you refrigerate or freeze the soup the fat will rise to the top then you can scrape it out.

Thanks Roberta, I have tried that, but when I heat it up it still too greasy. I have a lot of stomach problems, any greasy foods just cause more pain. Since I am now stuck with this stupid soft food & liquid diet I found there are not many things I can eat, so soup is the best solution when I don't want to eat but have to. It is also not as greasy when we make our own, but my DH has been working so much lately that he hasn't had time to cook enough too last.
The Adobe really doesn't change the taste, but also works when we make potato soup also.

But Thanks So Much !!!!!

Take a large leaf of lettuce and dredge it through the soup. Then, take another one and do it again. The leaves will pick up the grease and it should also still taste pretty good.

I don't know what it called but a cup with the spout hole at the bottom. You pour your brout in it and the greese rises to the top then you till it and only your broth comes out. Stop pouring when you get to the grease. Then put in frigerator and you can skim off the rest.

Happy face

Try making your own chicken broth: I make this all the time and it's not greasy and it is very flavorful, either on its own or with noodles, etc. It's virtually fat free and it's made with ONE bone in chicken breast. 1 bone in chicken breast, all fat removed 3 stalks of celery 3-4 carrots, peeled and left whole 2 8 oz cans Hunts tomato sauce 1 onion, peeled 10 sprigs parsley 1 sprig fresh rosemary 1 bay leaf 1/2 T kosher salt 6 - 7 c water Add all ingredients to a soup pot, bring to a boil, then simmer for several hours. Remove bay leaf, parsley and rosemary. Refrigerate and when cold, remove any fat (which will be VERY little) We make this at least once a week at our house.
