from "Monday-to-Friday Chicken" by Michèle Urvater

This is a bit skimpy for dinner, so make a salad to serve after the soup and be sure to serve lots of bread on the side. If you have leftover boiled potatoes, chunk them and add them to the soup, making it heartier – and more of an official chowder. On special occasions, substitute 1 cup chicken broth and 1 cup heavy cream for the evaporated milk.

Makes: 4 servings
Time: 30 minutes
