Chicken Corn Chowder

This soup is delicious. Such a smooth texture and full of flavor. I found this recipe in the Cooking Light magazine, July 2006 issue. 

What you need:

  • 1 TBS butter
  • 6 green onions
  • 2 TBS all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups chopped and cooked chicken breast
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 2 (10 oz) packages frozen – sweet corn kernels. (thawed and divided)
  • 1 (14 oz) can chicken broth (I use fat-free)
  • 2 cups milk (I used 1%)
  • 1/2 cup shredded cheddar cheese (more if you are cheese lovers)

What you do:

  1. Melt butter in a large chef skillet or dutch oven over medium-high heat. 
  2. Remove green tops from green onions and thinly slice the white portion of each onion. Add sliced onions to pan and saute for 2 minutes. 
  3. Add flour; cook 1 minute, stirring continuously with a whisk. 
  4. Stir in chick, salt, pepper, 1 package of corn, and broth. Bring to a boil. 
  5. Reduce heat and simmer 5 minutes. 
  6. While the mixture is simmering, combine the remaining corn and milk in a blender; process until smooth. Add milk mixture to pan and simmer 2 additional minutes – or until thoroughly heated. 
  7. Top with cheese
