Chicken and Corn Chowder

I really stink at taking pictures of my recipes! Anyway, I made this chowder last night and it was a crowd-pleaser, so I wanted to share.

Ingredients

  • 1-2 boneless skinless chicken breasts, cooked and cubed
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 2 tbsp butter
  • 3 cups chicken stock (you can add a little more if need be.)
  • 1/2-2 cups half and half
  • 2 tbsp flour mixed with 2 tbsp of half and half
  • 1 clove garlic, chopped
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1 tsp dried dill or 1 tbsp fresh dill
  • 1/4 tsp paprika
  • salt and pepper to taste
Cook and cube chicken (Personally, I think it's easiest to cook the chicken covered in the microwave.), In a large stock pot, melt the butter and then add your garlic; saute for a couple of minutes. Then, add your stock, potatoes, and chicken. Cook until potatoes are almost tender. Add your corn, spices, and half and half. Simmer (stirring occasionally) for about 10-15 minutes to allow all those lovely flavors to come together. Add your flour/half and half mixture and simmer (stirring occasionally) a couple more minutes to thicken. Serve with salad and biscuits or crusty bread. Yummy!
Serves 4-8 depending on just how hungry everyone is. :0)

I am always looking for new yummy recipes!!! My kids are now eating soup now too! Yeah. I love soups and breads. Especially for dipping! Did you know you have your blog blocked when people (me) click on your profile?

This sounds good, too. We have a black bean soup that I make quite often. I think this would me something that the whole family (shoot, I'll be honest -- THE KIDS -- as well as the adults) would love

I'll let you know how they turn out!
