Chicken and Corn Chowder

Oh hey guys!

First off, I'm still doing Body by Vi and doing pretty amazing! My clothes are fitting so well, some are even falling off and I'm so close to fitting into a pair of jeans from two years ago.

The other night I actually had time to cook and decided to make a healthier chowder. I used skim milk, whole wheat flour and a limited amount of butter. If you don't have a wedding dress to fit into in six months, feel free to use cream, regular flour and lots of butter if you'd like!

1 tbsp butter
1/2 onion, finely chopped
4 pieces celery, chopped
1 potato, diced into small cubes
3 cups skim milk
1/4 cup whole wheat flour
1/2 tsp poultry seasoning
1/2 tsp ground cumin
1/2 tsp white pepper
Salt to taste
1/4 cup fresh parsley, chopped
2 cups shredded (fully cooked) chicken
1 15 oz can corn

In a large pot, melt butter and sautee onion, celery and potato for 4-5 minutes. In a mason jar, place milk and flour and shake until fully combined. Add to pot. Mix in seasoning, cumin, white pepper, salt and parsley. Mix until well combined. Add chicken and corn. Simmer on low-medium for 30-35 minutes, until potatoes are fork tender.
