Good, healthy soup recipe!

With the weather getting cooler, I've been wanting to make soups for dinner.  I made this Chicken Corn Chowder from Cooking Light tonight and it was REALLY good!


http://find.myrecipes.com/recipes/recipefinder.dyn?action=displayRecipe&recipe_id=10000001206216


I did doctor it up a little bit because after reading the recipe I thought it might be a little bland.  Things I did differently:


* Added a minced clove of garlic and a minced, seeded jalapeno pepper when   sauteing the green onion in the beginning.  


* Added a dash or two of cayenne pepper towards the end of the soup simmering.


* Used pepper jack cheese on top instead of cheddar.


Normally I would have used a rotisserie chicken from the grocery store if I made this on a week night to cut down on cooking time but since it was Sunday, I roasted two breasts in the oven at 400 degrees for 30 minutes with just a little olive oil, salt, and pepper and then shredded them after they were cool. 


Hope someone enjoys it! :)

I'm sure you could!  Or make it with the chicken and then just let A have all the meat and you eat the broth?
