RAD December – Potato Corn Chowder

The winter months make me crave comfort food. Unfortunately, comfort food usually comes with a high calorie price tag. This recipe however, gives you all the creamy goodness of chowder with a small fraction of the fat.

Ingredients:
2 c. Chicken stock
4 c. Water
1 can cream of celery soup
1 can cheddar cheese soup
1 c. Milk
3 medium russet potatoes (diced)
3 celery stalks (diced)
4 large carrots (diced)
1 c. Frozen corn
1 c. Frozen peas
2 tbs. corn starch

Bring potatoes, celery, carrots, chicken stock and water to a boil.
Cook until potatoes are fork tender.
Add soups, milk, corn, and peas and bring to a simmer.
Simmer about 30 minutes (stirring frequently).
Make a slurry with the cornstarch and a little water.
Stir into the simmering soup.
Add salt and pepper to taste.

RAD December – Curried Chicken Salad

Who doesn’t like chicken salad?  Ok, there are probably a few out there but for the rest of us, chicken salad usually means creamy goodness that is loaded with fat.  Luckily, thanks to the substitution of greek yogurt, this recipe is a lower calorie treat with all the creamy goodness of its full fat cousin!
