I’ll admit it… I love a nice bowl of homemade chowder. There’s just something about the richness and creaminess that’s hard to beat. The problem for me up until now has been that it takes some time to make and that I always feel guilty about all those calories. Well… consider the problem solved with this slow cooker version of Chicken Corn Chowder. It’s easy to make and good for you. Make up a batch, grab a big bowl of it and dig in.
- ½ cup chopped carrots
- 1 cup skim milk
- 1 cup low sodium chicken broth
- ⅛ tsp. white pepper
- 1 onion, chopped
- 2 cloves garlic, minced
- 1 potato, peeled and cubed
- ½ lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1" pieces
- 2 (15 oz.) cans creamed corn
- ¼ cup dried potato flakes
- Pour everything except the potato flakes in your crockpot. Cook on low for 5 to 6 hours. Check your potatoes and make sure they are tender. The chicken should also be cooked all the way through.
- Turn your crockpot to high and add the potato flakes. Stir them in well (you don’t want clumps) and cook uncovered for a few minutes. Serve with a chunk of hardy bread or a side salad.
