Such a hearty, creamy, comforting bowl of soup – This Chicken & Corn Chowder comes together super quick in just one big pot making it perfect for busy weeknights.
When someone tells you, “this is my favorite soup that you’ve ever made” you know you have a winner. That’s what I heard multiple times from my family while we enjoyed this soup on a cold winter night. I won’t lie, it really is delicious, and it may just be my favorite soup yet.
Now, before you get all up in arms screaming that this isn’t “chowder,” I will admit that you’r kind of right. Chowders are typically thickened with a roux of sorts, and I didn’t do that. So, it’s more chowder-esque. But that’s ok, because it totally scrumptious. Not to worry though, I’ll include thickening instructions in the recipe in case you want to do that.
So what makes this soup so creamy if you aren’t thickening it? Well, cream for starters. I used a combination of one part heavy cream and one part nonfat milk. You could also use all heavy cream or even Half & Half for a richer soup but I like to reduce the fat and calories a tad by using the nonfat milk. This Chicken & Corn Chowder is super versatile – you could add some cream cheese or even some nice cheddar for extra flavor. If you want to save on calories, you could leave the cream out all together.
Whichever way you make it, make it your own – that’s what cooking is all about! Enjoy, my friends!
