Tasty Thursdays: Cheddar Chicken Chowder

Thursday, January 03, 2013

I love soups! Especially when it's freezing outside - definitely a delicious way to warm up. I found an appetizing recipe on CookingLight for a Cheddar Chicken Chowder - yum! The following recipe serves 7.


  • 2 bacon slices 
  • Cooking spray 
  • 1 pound skinned, boned chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces 
  • 1 cup chopped onion 
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper 
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced 
  • 4 1/2 cups fat-free chicken broth 
  • 1 3/4 cups diced peeled red potatoes 
  • 2 1/4 cups frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour 
  • 2 cups 2% low-fat milk 
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese 
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt 
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  1. Cook bacon in a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Crumble; set aside. Add chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic to bacon fat in pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add broth and potatoes; bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add corn; stir well.
  2. Place flour in a bowl. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended; add to soup. Cook over medium heat 15 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Stir in cheese, salt, and pepper. Top with crumbled bacon.
