Top Review by Sandra Hyde

I enjoy chowders and found this one very easy to make. I have my own 'recipe' for chicken stock and used that instead. The taste was still wonderful - creamy with tender seafood. As they say in the McDonald's ads in Australia "Mmmmm...". I thoroughly recommend anyone who like seafood to try this recipe.
