      Great soup - mine didn't quite thicken up enough but will work on that next time - loved the taste

      This is a really delicious chowder! DH smoked a whole chicken in the stovetop smoker, and I had exactly 2 cups of meat left to use. This recipe was perfect. My only modification was that I used a little bit more roasted red pepper than 1/4 cup (I used one whole roasted red pepper that I had left in a jar). Next time, I would chop instead of dice the sweet potatoes. I would have liked them in bigger chunks. Anyway, both DH and I loved this chowder and it reheated well for lunch the next day. I will definitely make this again. Thanks!

      nice recipe with easy ingredients that result in a very delicious soup. i was pressed for time so i sauteed the bacon onions and chicken together. had no fat to drain surprisingly. mixed in the flour and then added the potatoes, stock, roasted peppers and spices. i let it simmer and tasted it without the cream; it was delicious but i wanted to follow the recipe so added the cream (used 1/2c) and let it simmer again for 20 minutes. one of the best soups i have ever tasted. flavors compliment one another very well and though it is a cream soup is not too thick;more of a brothy texture which is nice as you dont feel stuffed after eating it. sided it with good homemade garlic bread. thanks for sharing the great recipe!!!
