another chowder, another night with ian. tim joined us for this one. and it was simple, simple, simple! i have to give a big shout out to giant eagle and their 4.99 rotisserie chicken. it might be my favorite thing to buy there because it’s cheap, delicious and i can use it in so many things, like this dish.
- 1 Tbs butter
- generous 1/2 cup chopped onion
- 1/4 cup chopped celery
- 2 1/2 Tbs all-purpose flour
- 2 1/2 cups 2% milk
- 1/2 cup chicken broth
- 2 cups roasted chicken, shredded
- 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
- 1/4 tsp dried thyme
- dash of cayenne
- salt to taste
- avocado for garnish
melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat. add the onion and celery and cook for about 3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in the milk and remaining ingredients, simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes. Serve with avocado and freshly ground pepper if desired.
i think it took about 15-20 minutes to pull together. had a nice sweet taste to it, courtesy of the corn, and it was warm and filling. it makes a lot! so feed your friends or prepare to have leftovers. yum!
