Remember that half bottle of Alfredo sauce? I hope you saved it because it will get used up in today’s recipe. We are going to make a one-pot chicken chowder. The definition of a chowder means a soup with milk or cream. We’ll get the creaminess from the Alfredo sauce without adding more dairy.
So, time to assemble some ingredients and get started.
Here’s what you need –
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 teaspoon olive oil
1 garlic clove, minced
2 chicken thighs, no skin
1 can (15 oz) chicken broth, low sodium
1 can (15 oz) canellini beans, undrained, divided
1 4-oz can diced green chilis
1 cup corn (frozen, or 8 oz can), divided
1/2 jar Alfredo sauce
1/4 teaspoon pepper
1/2 cup colby jack cheese
Garnish – two tablespoons shredded cheese and two teaspoons chopped green onions
Saute onion in a large pot with olive oil until translucent. Add garlic and saute one minute. Add chicken to the pot, and brown on both sides.
Then add chicken broth to pot, bring to a boil, then turn down and simmer until chicken is done, about 15 minutes.
Remove chicken to plate, and let cool for a few minutes until it can be handled.
In the meantime, put half the beans in a blender with the green chilies and 1/4 cup of corn and puree.
Add the puree, the other half of beans, half jar of Alfredo sauce, remaining corn, pepper and 1/2 cup cheese to pot and bring back to a boil.
Remove chicken from bones, and chop into bite size pieces. Add to pot. Simmer for about 15 minutes for flavors to meld.
Serve with a garnish of shredded cheese and chopped green onion.
Enjoy! Serves 2. Hearty and delicious, and gluten free too!
