Menu for March 7-11- Monday: Chicken, Cheddar, Chowdar

Pin It Now! Looking to use up some items from the freezer this week...so I came across these wonderful dishes...I just love being in the kitchen and creating fun things to eat! :)


Monday:  I just love soup!  :)  So, this one sound simple, easy and delish.  Plus, the reviews raved about it.  Looking forward to dinner tonight!


Ingredients
  • 2 bacon slices
  • Cooking spray
  • 1 pound skinned, boned chicken breast, cut into bite-size pieces
  • 1 cup chopped onion
  • 1 cup diced red bell pepper
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 4 1/2 cups fat-free chicken broth
  • 1 3/4 cups diced peeled red potatoes
  • 2 1/4 cups frozen whole-kernel corn
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups 2% low-fat milk
  • 3/4 cup (3 ounces) shredded cheddar cheese
  • 1/2 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
Preparation
  • Cook bacon in a Dutch oven coated with cooking spray over medium-high heat until crisp. Remove bacon from pan. Crumble; set aside. Add chicken, onion, bell pepper, and garlic to bacon fat in pan; sauté 5 minutes. Add broth and potatoes; bring to boil. Cover, reduce heat, and simmer 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add corn; stir well.
  • Place flour in a bowl. Gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until blended; add to soup. Cook over medium heat 15 minutes or until thick, stirring frequently. Stir in cheese, salt, and pepper. Top with crumbled bacon.
Note: To save time, buy pre-chopped onion and bell pepper and a package of pre-shredded cheese.

This was extremely tasty! Topped with some avocado (highly recommended this!) Simple dish with a ton of flavor. If your kids balk to chunks, just puree in the blender and I promise they will love this. Actually, puree the avocado in too! Great dish, oh, hubby and I spiced up with red pepper flakes. Wicked good.
