TTAH Tuesday – Cheesy Chicken Chowder

I tried this new recipe this weekend and thought I’d share it with you.  It was really yummy and very easy. 

Cheesy Chicken Chowder

 3 cups chicken broth

2 cups diced peeled potatoes

1 cup diced carrots

1 cup diced celery

½ cup diced onion

1 ½ teaspoons salt

¼ teaspoon pepper

¼ cup butter

1/3 cup all-purpose flour

2 cups milk

2 cups (8 oz) shredded cheddar cheese

2 cups diced cooked chicken

            In a 4-qt. Saucepan, bring chicken broth to a boil.  Reduce heat; add the potatoes, carrots, celery, onion, salt and pepper.  Cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until veggies are tender.

            Meanwhile, melt butter in a medium saucepan; add flour and mix well.  Gradually stir in milk; cook over low heat until slightly thickened.  Stir in cheese and cook until melted; add to broth along with chicken.  Cook and stir over low heat until heated through.

Try this at home for a taste-test!  Enjoy!
