This dish is so comforting. I omit the carrots, the oregano, and water, and I also add the chicken in at the end. First I boil water with powdered chicken broth. Then I start the veggies just as the recipe says but without carrots. After putting the flour in, I add some of the boiling broth, about 1/2 a cup to the veggie mix to make sure there are no clumps. Then I add the veggies, seasoned chicken, and rice into the boiling broth. When it starts to boil again, I add the milk and any additional seasonings. Usually when making this dish, I serve it along with baked chicken. While baking the chicken I reserve about a 1/2 cup of the chicken juices for the chowder. After adding the milk, add the juices. I makes such a difference! Also, if I'm in the mood, I take a hot pepper, poke tiny holes in it, and I put in the chowder to boil . At the end I remove it, and the final dish is so yummy! My family absolutely loves it, and its perfect for a cold winter night! Tip: if you find the chowder is thickening to much at the end and too quickly, just keep adding in small amounts of milk until the rice is fully cooked. Season with black pepper and salt if needed.
