Our other sister, Orra, used to always make this amazing corn chowder years ago. She lost track of the recipe but was able to tell me some of the ingredients. I took the ingredients she gave me and went from there. This is a creamy, filling, delicious, perfect-for-a-lunch-or-dinner meal.
And, the nutritional count is just crazy.
I mean, for a 2 CUP SERVING it is 200 calories, 37 carbs, 1 fat, and 14 protein -- according to Myfitnesspal. I got 5, 2 cup servings out of the recipe.
I am not a huge soup lover but this doesn't even feel like soup. It feels like you are eating a casserole.
Really, it's that filling.
Chicken Corn Chowder (Low Calorie)
2 chicken breasts (8 oz total) boneless, skinless, diced small
1 medium onion, diced
2 stalks celery, diced
1 orange, bell pepper, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 tsp cumin
1 tsp dried thyme
1 tsp dried parsley
1 bay leaf
4 cups chicken broth, reduced sodium
1 cup corn
1 can (398 ml) creamed corn
1 medium potato, peel on, diced small
1 can Carnation Fat Free Evaporated Milk
2 Tbsp cornstarch
salt & pepper
In a large saucepan sprayed with cooking spray, over medium heat, cook and stir chicken, onion, celery, bell pepper, and garlic until onion starts to soften and chicken is no longer pink. Add in the cumin, thyme, parsley and bay leaf, stir to mix well.
Add in the broth and bring to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes.
Add in corn, creamed corn, and potato.
Return to simmer for another 10 minutes, until potatoes are tender.
In a small bowl, whisk together the evaporated milk and cornstarch until smooth. Stir into the soup and return to a simmer.
Remove the bay leaf.
Simmer until thickened, 2 - 3 minutes.
Season with salt & pepper. Serve hot.
I love how big the servings are for ONLY 200 calories.
Plus it tastes amazing!
