Healthy Crockpot Chicken Corn Chowder

Here we are again in our busy spring time season.  With two kids in different sports, late night practices and hectic afternoons, the challenge of having a healthy meal together seems to increase with every passing year.  This week, I pulled off an easy Crockpot recipe that was a hit by everyone.  Well, let me be honest.  My seven year old was not a “fan,” as he says, of the potatoes.  None the less, it worked.  We did not eat out, managed to eat together and got in a little nutrition with this Healthy Crockpot Chicken and Corn Chowder.

  • 1 clove of garlic
  • ½ chopped onion
