Slimming World Friendly Recipe- Shredded Chicken & Cheese Chowder



Chuck the ingredients in in the morning...


Lovely dinner ready by the time you get home from work


Serves 4

Extra Easy Syn Value:- 2

Healthy Extras:- A 

Chowder is traditionally prepared with milk or cream and thickened with broken crackers, crushed ship biscuit, or a roux.  I have adapted to make it a little more slimming world friendly, replacing the milk with fat free fromage frais.  You can pack this with speed veg and I topped mine with melted cheese for an extra  creaminess, but also tastes great without


You will need:- 

4 slices bacon all fat removed and then diced
4 large chicken breasts
handful of new potatoes, diced
1 onion, diced
3 carrots, peeled and diced
1 large tin sweetcorn
1 litre of chicken stock (can be made up with cubes)
3 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried oregano
Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons corn flour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tbsp fat free fromage fais
40g extra light chedder per person/portion

Method:- 

Place all of the ingredients, except the cornflour, fat free fromage fais, and butter, into your slow cooker dish.  Make sure there is enough stock to cover everything, if not add some extra water

Cover and cook on low heat for 7-8 hours or high heat for 3-4 hours

30 mins before finishing time, in a small bowl whisk together corn flour and fat free fromage fais, plus 2 tbsp water. Stir in the corn flour mixture and butter to make the chowder thicker and creamier

Pull out the chicken breast and shred with 2 forks

Sprinkle with cheese and serve
