    Sweet Diva's Note:

    Adapted from Taste of Home. This creamy, flavorful chowder is wonderful. Just a tip: I mega-cook (OAMC) when I can and will roast 4 chickens at once and then cut-up the meat to freeze, so I always have chicken meat on hand for recipes such as this one, which reduces the cooking time considerably. I also substitute canned evaporated skimmed or low-fat milk for the whipping cream, which cuts the fat and calories significantly.

      I used fresh asparagus and evaporated milk. It was wonderful; very tasty and creamy! I will definately be making this again during asparagus season.
