Expert Tips

Look for frozen cubed cooked chicken in the grocery store's freezer case.

Use leftover roasted, baked or grilled chicken in this chowder; cube and measure 2 cups. Mild Mexican-flavored prepared cheese product adds a little zing to this soup. If you prefer less spice, use the regular prepared cheese product.
