Chicken Corn Chowder
Why I Love This Recipe
This is my attempt to make a simple, tasty and lower fat and calorie chicken corn chowder.
Ingredients You'll Need
12 ounces boneless, skinless chicken breasts or tenders
1 large yukon gold potato (8 ounces), cubed
1 large carrot (4 ounces), sliced
2 stalks celery (about 6-8 inches), sliced
1 medium onion, diced
1 clove garlic, smashed and minced
1 can corn (11 ounces) kernels
28 ounces nonfat chicken broth (more as needed)
1 can lowfat cream of chicken soup
1 tsp poultry seasoning (usually a combination of sage, marjoram, savory, thyme and rosemary)
salt and pepper to taste
Poach the chicken in the broth with the poultry seasoning. When cooked, remove the chicken. This step is mostly because my chicken is always frozen when I want it. Also, you don’t want to overcook the chicken.
Add potatoes, carrots, onions, garlic and celery to the broth; bring back to a boil and simmer 15 minutes. Add chicken back to the pot. Stir in corn and cream of chicken soup. Let cook about 15 minutes longer.
Add water or skim milk to thin the soup if needed.
