Lightened-Up Broccoli and Bacon Chowder – Lighter on calories, but not on flavor! Perfect when served with a piece of warm, buttered bread!
Place the chicken stock and cream cheese in a 6-quart Dutch oven and simmer over medium heat while whisking to combine the cream cheese into the stock.
Add the carrots, broccoli, potato, corn, salt, pepper, and half and half into the dutch oven. Simmer for 10 minutes.
Whisk together the milk and flour in a medium bowl until no lumps of flour are visible. Whisk the mixture into the soup in the Dutch oven until combined.
Allow the chowder to simmer for 20-25 minutes or until thickened.
Serve with bacon and scallions on top.
