The BEST Turkey Chowder
Make A Joyful Table p.99
freezer friendly

If we hold a contest at the Iowa State Fair for the best way to serve holiday leftovers, this would be my entry-- and I bet it would win. (Especially if Cliff is doing the judging!) The ginger gives it a special zing all its own.

1 cup finely chopped celery
1/2 cup chopped onion
2 cups (one 16-ounce can) Healthy Request Chicken Broth
2/3 cup Carnation Nonfat Dry Milk Powder
1 cup (one 8-ounce can) cream-style corn
1/2 cup (one 2.5-ounce jar) sliced mushrooms, drained
1 1/2 cups (8 ounces) diced cooked potatoes
1 1/2 cups (8 ounces) diced cooked turkey breast
1/2 teaspoon ground ginger

In a large saucepan sprayed with butter-flavored cooking spray, saute celery and onion for 10 minutes or until tender. In a medium bowl, combine chicken broth and dry milk powder. Stir broth mixture and corn into vegetable mixture. Add mushrooms, potatoes, turkey and ginger. Mix well to combine. Lower heat and simmer for 15 minutes or until mixture is heated through, stirring occasionally.

Hint: If you don't have leftovers, purchase a chunk of cooked turkey breast from your local deli.

Serves 4 (1 1/2 cups) Each serving equals:
HE: 2 Pr, 1 Br, 1 Ve, 1/2 SM
238 Cal, 2g Fa, 26g Pr, 29 Carb, 638mg So, 171mg Calc, 3g Fi
Diabetic: 2 meat, 1 starch, 1 vegetable, 1/2 skim milk
