    momaphet's Note:

    This soup cooks up quickly, and is warming and delicious. It comes from the Simply Classic Cookbook by the Jr League of Seattle. Prep time doesn't include cooking the chicken. As quick as this is to make, save even more time by using the meat from a roasted chicken bought at your local grocer. If you cook chicken breasts for the recipe (2-3 halves) add onion, garlic and s & p to the water. This chowder is very mild, if you like spicy add more tabasco, or a diced jalepeno, or substitute some Pepper Jack cheese in place of Montery Jack A cold beer or glass of white wine is perfect with this.

      Note:.
    7. 7
      I will often buy whole milk for this recipe, but will also mix some half and half into non-fat milk. It would probably be fine with just the lower fat milk, but not as rich.

      I followed the recipe as written but this got mixed reviews at my house. I liked it but the rest of the family didn't. That was OK because I then had a lot for lunches!

      This was pretty good for a hot lunch today. I did use skim milk since that's what I had on hand; sure it would be creamier with whole. Thanks for posting.
