chicken corn chowder

This thick and creamy chicken corn chowder recipe is remarkably easy to make.  If you don’t want to take the time to cook the chicken, you can pick up a pre-cooked chicken at the store, or use canned chicken breast (I recommend the pre-cooked if you are going this route.)

This is a great soup recipe to try our for National Home Cooked Soup Day, coming up February 4th!  And like all home cooked soups, it is nutritious and healthy.

Recipe Notes

This soup is so filling and nutritious that it is a complete meal in itself. You don't really need to add sandwiches or rolls to complete it. You can stretch this soup by adding some sliced carrots or diced potatoes.
