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
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.
