The first time I made this chowder I followed the recipe exactly. The second time I made it, I made some changes which I think really improved the final results.
I eliminated the water. I didn't see the need for it. I also eliminated the oregano. I think that was my biggest complaint with the recipe as is - for me the taste was overpowering. To add some flavor, I added chicken bullion, white pepper, parsley and onion powder. Lastly, I waited until the final step to add the chicken. Made as is – the chicken cooks too long – the end result is dried out or rubbery chicken.
A tip for new cooks: Before transferring the flour/vegetable mix to the rice mixture stir about ¼ to ½ cup of chicken broth into the flour/veg mixture. This helps to eliminate lumps in your final product.
