My husband David loves this soup! It is so tasty on a chilly winter evening. I discovered this recipe in my December 1996 issue of Cooking LIght magazine...a bit tattered now, but I still turn to it every year for this soup and other holiday recipes.
Cheddar Chicken Chowder has just 306 calories per 1 1/2 c. serving and 7.5 grams of fat. I usually make it with turkey bacon, and use a bit of olive oil in lieu of the bacon fat.
