This was definitely the best clam chowder I have ever made! My store didn't have fresh clams so I had to use 2 cans of baby clams with the juice, the clam juice was rather expensive so I only bought 1- 8 oz. bottle and substituted 5 cups of chicken broth and it still turned out great!! Thanks so much for sharing

I've tried making clam chowder using many different recipes and this is the best recipe I have ever used. From now on it's the only recipe for clam chowder I will use. I substituted fat free half and half and it was still wonderful.
