There are over 250 recipes, all with detailed Nutrition Analysis.

But if this is what you are looking for - here's the recipe:

Chicken Mushroom Chowder

Total time: 35 minutes
     I used chicken breasts, but thighs would work as well. Either way, used skinned chicken to save on fat and calories. Because everything is sautéed briefly this is a quick-cooking soup; because it's a chowder, it's very thick. Add more stock or milk if you prefer it thinner.  This is enough for 2 meals or 4 persons.

For leftover chowder.....

Chicken and Mushroom Chowder 'Vesuvius'               Time: 15 minutes
   If one can put an egg on pizza, why not add one to soup?  A poached egg nestled in the center of the chowder adds interest, flavor and a bit more protein to stretch the leftovers.  Plus, it's delicious!

General Technical Details and Disclaimer:

Measurements are actual measurements used for calculation. If there are no values the nutritional numbers were simply too small.

I try to be accurate, but I do not guarantee it.  I use 'grams' as the unit of weight; with an approximate conversion to ounces.

My information comes from my own digital, computerized scale and the USDA Nutrient Data Library:

The fine print:

The recipes do NOT use processed foods, with the exception of The recipes DO use lots and lots of fresh, seasonal, and (we hope) local produce

Most recipes are designed for 2 servings, but are easily increased to 4... or 6.... or 8...
     Naturally, whether or not the serving size suits you depends on appetite, activity level, and all sorts of stuff we know nothing about.
