Scroll down for full recipe and instructions

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


Chuck the ingredients in in the morning...


Lovely dinner ready by the time you get home from work

You will need:- 

4 slices bacon all fat removed and then diced
4 large chicken breasts
a 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

Pinch of cayenne pepper
1 bay leaf
salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
2 tablespoons cornflour
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 tbsp fat free fromage fais
40g extra light cheddar 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 cornflour and fat free fromage fais, plus 2 tbsp water. Stir in the cornflour mixture and butter to make the chowder thicker and creamier

Sprinkle with cheese and serve
