I have never been a huge fan of soup, which is why this was my first ever attempt at making soup. I tend to like things that are creamy and rich, so I thought a chicken and corn chowder would be a great beginning soup. I searched online for recipes and none of them seemed to be what I was looking for. I had this perfect vision in my mind of what my soup was going to be like and what was going to be in it, so I decided to just throw a recipe together and see what would happen. The result is a delicious, creamy, flavorful, magnificent soup. Not to toot my own horn or anything, but this soup is probably the best soup in the entire world. Once you have all of your ingredients cut and chopped it comes together pretty quickly! After you have made this chowder you will be a much happier person and your family will thank you.
Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe: |Print Recipe|
3 slices bacon
6 tablespoons butter
1 onion (minced)
4 potatoes (diced)
1/4 cup flour
1.5 pounds cooked boneless skinless chicken breasts (cut into 1" cubes)
1 package frozen corn kernels
1/4 cup green onions (sliced)
3 cups chicken broth
1 cup half and half
1 cup milk
salt and pepper to taste
Cut bacon into small pieces and fry in a large saucepan (dutch ovens are awesome!) When bacon is fully cooked, add onions. Sautee over medium heat and throw in 3 tablespoons of butter and cook onions for about 3 minutes.
Add diced potatoes and 3 more tablespoons of butter and cook until potatoes are beginning to soften (about 6-8 minutes).
Sprinkle flour over potatoes and stir until coated. Stir in chicken, corn and green onions and mix together. Add chicken broth, half and half, milk and salt and pepper. Simmer for 10 minutes.
