So delicious, everyone loved it!!! I’ve made it several times now. A coworker said it was the best clam chowder she had ever had and wants me to make it for her again and said she will buy the ingredients!! One of my family’s favorites for sure!

The basic recipe is a really good start . We like more herbs, so I put in 2 teaspoons thyme instead of 1/4 teaspoon. Also increased the garlic to 3 cloves .
