This soup is really delicious! Just wondering if someone could give me an estimate of how many calories there would be in total/in a 1 cup serving??

I worked out that it would be roughly 1080cal for the lot but I would make one change (which this number reflects) - and that's to use 80g of vermicelli noodles instead of risoni. Also hard to know exactly how much a chicken thigh weighs as it can vary a lot, but this is based on a 52g thigh fillet x 6. I can't quite find in the recipe how many it serves, but based on 4 people, it would be 270 cal each, or based on 6 people, it would be 180 cal per serve. Hope that helps! I think I'll be making it as I'm doing the 5:2 diet and am on the lookout for very low cal tasty meals!
