Smoked Turkey - Potato Chowder

Tonight I made Smoked Turkey - Potato Chowder for dinner. This recipe was pretty simple to make and really healthy and delicious!

Smoked Turkey - Potato Chowder (I doubled this recipe for us)

1 tablespoon butter or margarine

1 cup sliced celery (2 medium stalks)

2 tablespoons all-purpose flour

1/8 teaspoon pepper

1 can (14 0z) fat-free chicken broth with 33% less sodium

3 cups frozen potatoes O'Brian with onions and peppers (from 28 oz bag)

6 oz smoked turkey breast, cut into cubes (1 1/3 cups)

1 cup frozensweet peas

2 cups fat-free (skim) milk

1/4 cup chopped fresh parsley

In 3-quart saucepan, melt butter over medium heat. Add celery; cook 2 to 3 minutes, stirring frequently, until crisp-tender.

Stir in flour and pepper until well blended. Increase heat to medium-high; gradually stir in broth, cooking and stirring until bubbly and thickened.

Stir in potatoes, turkey breast, peas and milk. Heat to boiling. Reduce heat to low; cover and simmer 8 to 10 minutes, stirring occasionally, until potatoes are tender. Stir in parsley during last 2 minutes of cook time.
