Ingredient Checklist


Instructions Checklist
  • Combine potatoes, mixed vegetables, onions, celery, parsley and Swanson® Chicken Broth in a large saucepan. Bring to a boil over medium heat; reduce heat, cover, and simmer gently until vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Stir in turkey and poultry seasoning.

  • Whisk flour and the half-and-half together until smooth. Stir mixture slowly into the saucepan. Stir until slightly thickened, or until mixture reaches a chowder-like consistency. Add sriracha sauce, salt, and pepper, mixing well.

  • Ladle into soup bowls; garnish with crumbled bacon.


Cook's Note:

Good served with oyster crackers or crusty bread. The sriracha has a subtle taste in this chowder, but if you're concerned about its spiciness, just leave it out--you'll still love this!

Great recipe! I used cornstarch instead of flour to make this gluten-free a can of corn plus a half cup frozen corn instead of mixed veggies and a whole tsp Sriracha sauce. Loved it! It was not very spicy even with the additional Shiracha. I d like more bacon (of course!) so I will double that next time. Read More

Very tasty. Didn't have sriracha so just added minced garlic and sautéed with onions and added pinch of cayenne. Also avoiding extra wheat so omitted flour knowing it would be less thick - didn't take away from flavor. Will make again. Read More

Chowder was an excellent way to use up leftover turkey. Only change I made was to swap the siracha for white pepper and a dash of tabasco. Was very good and I will be making it again! Read More

A little too thick for our tastes but would make it again and just use less flour. We added shredded cheese as a garnish and that really made it great! Read More
