1) In a medium bowl, mix milk and muffin mix until well combined.

 

2) Spray a large pot with olive oil spray. Add onion and cook until softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic and cook until fragrant, about 1 minute.

 

3) Add chicken broth, chicken, and sweet potatoes. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer until chicken is cooked and sweet potatoes are just tender.

 

4) Stir in milk and muffin mixture and simmer until soup thickens. Add cheese and corn and cook until cheese begins to melt, about 2 minutes. Season with salt, to taste. *Does not freeze well – ruins the texture!

 

5) Enjoy!

(By the way, for those you doing the new WW pointsplus plan, this is 8 pointsplus.)
