Chicken and Corn Chowder

Although I was a little disappointed in the thickness of this, it was delicious. It was more of a soup consistency than a chowder. I probably just needed to reduce the amount of broth that I put in it.Chicken and Corn Chowder

From: Treasury of Cooking Healthy

1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2" pieces
3 cups frozen whole kernel corn, thawed
3/4 cup onion, chopped
1-2 Tbs. water
1 cup carrots, diced
2 Tbs. jalepeno pepper, finely chopped.
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
1/4 tsp. dried thyme
3 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 cups milk
1/2 tsp. salt

Spray large nonstick saucepan with Pam; heat over medium heat until hot. Add chicken; cook and stir about 10 minutes or until browned and no longer pink in center. Remove chicken from pan.

Add corn and onion to saucepan; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until onion is tender. Place 1 cup corn mixture in a food processor or blender. Process until finely chopped, adding 1 to 2 Tbs. water; reserve.

Add carrots, jalapeno, oregano and thyme to saucepan; cook and stir about 5 minutes or until corn begins to brown. Return chicken to saucepan. Stir in chicken broth, milk, reserved corn mixture and salt; heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low and simmer, covered, 15-20 minutes.
