Chicken Bacon Chowder – THM Style

Alright guys, here is one for the keeping!! My trim healthy mama made this heavenly dinner last night called Low Carb Chicken Bacon Chowder that was out of this world. I mean, how can this not be good? Chicken and bacon in a thick creamy soup? This was outstanding in my book and I am passing along the recipe to you, so you can prepare this for the wife! Now what could even make this easier? Plan to Eat could! There is a new website called Plan to Eat, that makes meal planning and recipe saving unbelievably easy. They have a trial period to check things out, but my homeschooling mom says that it is good. And who am I to argue with my trim healthy homeschooling mama? My thanks to mysouthernaccent.tumbler.com for her putting this recipe together.

Course: Soup

Serves: 1

Ingredients

  • large Chicken Breasts
  • 1 pkg Bacon
  • 2 cups Chicken Broth
  • 1 8oz pkg of Cream Cheese
  • 2 Cups Heavy Cream
  • View All Ingredient….
  • 2 Tbs Butter or Margarine
  • 2 cups frozen Seasoning Blend or 1/2 large onion, 1/2 bell pepper and 1 stalk of celery chopped.
  • 2 4 oz cans of steams and pieces Mushrooms or 8 oz of fresh sliced Mushrooms
  • 2 Tsp minced Garlic
  • 1 Tsp Salt
  • 1 Tsp Black Pepper
  • 1 Tsp Basil
  • 1 Tsp Thyme
  • 2 Tsp Garlic Powder

Directions

  1. Turn Crockpot on low and put vegetables and 1 1/2 cups of Chicken Broth in the Crockpot with Butter and a pinch of Salt, cover. Cut Bacon into small pieces and cook until very crisp. Remove from pan and put aside. Leave 2 Tbs of Bacon grease in the bacon and place Chicken Breasts in the pan to sear on both sides. Remove Chicken and cut into small cubes. Use remaining 1/2 cup of Chicken Broth to de-glaze the pan, pour this into the crockpot. Add Bacon, Chicken, Heavy Cream, Cream Cheese and Seasonings, stirring until well blended. (Hint: I usually will sit the Cream Cheese on the stove while I am cooking, so the heat will soften it quicker and make it easier to mix in.)
  2. Cook on low setting for 6 Hours. You will need to stir well before serving, as it will separate while cooking.
  3. Garnish as you seem fit. I used fried onions and cheese. The fried onions that come in the can are surprising low in carbs and make a great garnish for soups, chili and salads.
