{soups-salads-and-salad-dressings} WR Bacon Clam Chowder with Diabetic Exchanges


Bacon Clam Chowder

From the Fall 2006 issue of Cooking for Two Magazine

Chopping the clams into tiny pieces adds big flavor to this full-bodied chowder from Betty Lineaweaver. “Everyone says it's the best they've ever tasted,” she writes from her Paradise, California home. “I like to serve it with garlic bread or a side salad.”

TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 minutes.

YIELD: 3 servings


·                                 1 cup reduced-sodium chicken broth

·                                 1 medium potato, peeled and cubed

·                                 1/2 cup chopped celery

·                                 1/4 cup chopped onion

·                                 1/2 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules

·                                 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme

·                                 1 can (6-1/2 ounces) minced clams

·                                 2 bacon strips, cooked and crumbled


·                                 1. In a small saucepan, combine the first six ingredients; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, uncovered, 10-12 minutes or until potato is tender.
