Did he break your heart? How wicked. I know you want to feel better but between crying your eyes out and shoveling down double chocolate chip ice-cream by the tubful, it's time to stop. Both.

At times like this, they say visualization really helps. So, visualise as you feverishly shred that boiled chicken to bits.  And while you're cooking, it doesn't hurt to have Gloria Gaynor's "I Will Survive" playing on a loop. 

When this mega batch of creamy chicken corn chowder is ready, for the final touch spice it up with a good dose of Unicorn Tears Coop Hot Sauce. Trust me, this mystical fluid is much better than seasoning with your own tears.

My almost empty bottle of Unicorn Tears. So good! No unicorns were harmed in the extraction of these tears. 

And then eat as many cupfuls of chicken and sweet corn chowder as you little heart desires. This healthy chicken corn chowder recipe gets its creaminess from a light roux and softened potatoes. No cream, no bacon, no cheese in this recipe. That means you can eat a lot more and once the sun comes out, you'll still be able to rock those hip hugging, skinny jeans, strut your stuff and show him what he lost. Sorry, no backsies.

Unicorn Tears Co-Op Hot Sauce

You thought I was joking about this mystical, fantastical ingredient in my recipe, didn't you? Well, there is such a thing as Unicorn Tears, produced by Co-Op Sauce. Made with serrano and chocolate habanero peppers and bound with wasabi, it will bring tears to your eyes if you don't use it sparingly.
