“I LOVE chicken corn chowder, but it is usually really high in calories. So, when the doctor told me that I need to lose some weight, I went a-hunting for a low-fat and low-cal version. What I found was this. I love that the work is minimal. No chopping (if you use frozen onions like I do), no peeling, just open a few cans and off you go! This is just as good reheated the next day if there are leftovers. I add a little Tabasco right before eating. Also, I should note that we like our chowder meaty, so I use 2 large cans of chicken. If you like it less so, you can use only one can. If you prefer to not use canned meat, use 1 cup of cooked, diced chicken breast for each can.”
