    ksduffster's Note:

    I LOVE chicken corn chowder, but it is usually really high in calories. So, when the doctor told me that I need to lose some weight, I went a-hunting for a low-fat and low-cal version. What I found was this. I love that the work is minimal. No chopping (if you use frozen onions like I do), no peeling, just open a few cans and off you go! This is just as good reheated the next day if there are leftovers. I add a little Tabasco right before eating. Also, I should note that we like our chowder meaty, so I use 2 large cans of chicken. If you like it less so, you can use only one can. If you prefer to not use canned meat, use 1 cup of cooked, diced chicken breast for each can.

      Easy, delicious and rather pretty too! I'm thrilled to have found this recipe. It's a complete cinch, it reheats well. The BEST part is that it's completely economical- in less than $10, DH and I have 2 nights of dinner and a lunch. Can't beat that. Thanks so much for posting.

      This is great stuff. It was just what I needed today as I'm feeling just a bit under the weather. This is so easy (I always keep canned chicken from Costco) and very diabetic friendly that I have saved it to my diabetic cookbook. It has a very good flavor even though I used mushroom soup as I had no cream of chicken on hand. I omitted the sugar also. It a comfort soup, no doubt about that. The orzo is a nice change from noodles and the rosemary/basil were really good in it. Keep this recipe in your files for the days when you want something quick and very tasty.
