New England Clam Chowder

I love Fall and all the yummy soup recipes that come with it!!! My husband loves Clam Chowder so I went on WW and searched for it and found this recipe.  It was really really good, but could use some thickening up, so keep that in mind when u make it!  Enjoy!!
Points plus value: 7
Servings: 4
Serving size: about 1 1/2 cups
1tsp vegetable oil (I used olive oil and it worked great)
2 slices turkey bacon, diced
1 small onion, finely diced
3 Tbsp all-purpose flour
1 cup ff milk
3 1/2 cup canned clam juice (I used 1 can ff chicken broth and a cup of water instead of this)
2 medium uncooked potatoes, peeled and diced ( i used canned potatoes to make it easier)
10 1/2 oz canned clams, and juice
1 tsp thyme
2 tsp parsley, chopped
1/8 tsp table salt, or to taste
1/8 tsp black pepper, or to taste

Heat oil in a nonstick pan over medium heat.  Saute bacon and onion until onion is very soft.  Stir in flour and cook 1 minute.  Very gradually whisk in milk and clam juice(or broth).  Bring to a simmer, add potatoes.  Cover and cook until potatoes are tender.
Stir in clams, their juice, thyme and parsley. Bring to a simmer.  Season with salt and pepper; serve.
