Chicken Corn Chowder

I can't think of any other soup that brings more warmth on a rainy, cold day. I saw this on my calendar and got so giddy. Funny, I'm the one who plans the meals and I still got excited.
That's just how delicious this soup is.

Chicken Corn Chowder
  • 4 c. chicken broth
  • 2 c. diced potatoes
  • 1 c. diced carrots
  • 1 c. diced celery
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 2 c. cooked chicken, shredded
  • 1 1/2 c. sweet white corn, (so much better with white)
  • 4 Tbsp butter
  • 1/3 c. flour
  • 2 c. milk
  • 2 c. shredded cheddar cheese, the sharper the better
  • Pepper & garlic salt
Cooking Directions:
Boil broth and veggies in large pot until soft. While veggies are boiling, melt butter in sauce pan. Slowly mix in flour to make a paste. Slowly stir in milk, continue stirring until sauce thickens. Remove from heat and stir in cheese.

Once veggies have softened, add chicken, and dash salt and pepper. Cook 1-2 minutes. Add cheese sauce. Let simmer 5 minutes.

Great served with pieces of cooked bacon.
