I don't think I have ever made a chowder before. I make soup, but it is usually a vegetable beef (that contains everything but the kitchen sink - no exact recipe) or a chicken/turkey noodle soup. My husband loves clam chowder and will usually get at least a cup of it, if it is on the menu. Thinking about it, I don't think I have ever even eaten a chowder before. 

This recipe from Ella Miller from Fresno, OH is in Wanda E. Brunstetter's The Best of Amish Friends Cookbook Collection cookbook I have. On the next page is a Hearty Chicken 'n' Rice Soup from Judith Martin of Millmont, PA. I am going to be trying that one probably next week. There is a picture of it and it looks good.

I thought the chowder was really good. My husband who likes spicy food wanted to add some seasonings to it, but he didn't. He said it was a good chowder to start with.


2         tablespoons butter
1/4      cup chopped onion
1-1/2   cups chopped cooked chicken (I used the whole chicken breast which meant I had a little bit more than that.)
1-1/2   cups diced carrots
1-1/2   cups diced raw potatoes
2         chicken bouillon cubes
1          teaspoon salt
1/8      teaspoon pepper
2         cups water
3         tablespoons flour
2-1/2  cups milk

Melt butter in 3 - quart saucepan. Add onions and saute until tender. Add chicken, carrots, potatoes, bouillon cubes, salt, pepper, and water.
Cover and simmer until vegetables are tender.
Combine flour and 1/2 cup of milk in a jar or container with a top so you can shake it until blended.
Add to vegetables along with remaining 2 cups milk.
Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly,
until mixture thickens.

Serve warm. Liquid will thicken more as it cools a little.
