New England Clam and Corn Chowder

Makes: 4 servings

Prep: 15 minutes

Cook: 17 minutes

How It's Healthier: Traditional New England clam chowder is made with a generous dose of bottled clam juice, which is very high in sodium. Here, we used reduced-sodium chicken broth to cut the salt and enhance flavor. Potatoes bulk up chowder, making it a filling meal. We slashed fat by switching out heavy cream for reduced-fat (2%) milk.
