Corn Chowder

Kid-Friendly Chicken Corn Chowder

To prepare for the arrival of baby #6, my mom, sisters and I started prepping for fall and winter recipes back in May. Craziness, I know, but that means we’ve been enjoying soup and pumpkin recipes all summer long. Fortunately, we are fans of these kinds of recipes and were happy to start enjoying them a bit early. One of the recipes we tried this summer was this cheesy Chicken Corn Chowder, and let me tell you now, it was simply amazing!

To be quite honest, you really can’t go wrong with a recipe like this. It is a little thicker (hence why it’s a chowder), but you can always make it more soup-y by adding a bit more chicken broth. It also has all of our favorite ingredients – chicken, corn, carrots, potatoes and cheese. And it’s actually very kid friendly! My kids still tend to cringe if they notice any “green” things in soup, so they loved this corn chowder. And I loved that they were eating some veggies. 😉

How to Make Chicken Chowder:

  1. Start by prepping your chicken (cook and dice), or use rotisserie chicken to speed up the process.
  2. In a large pot, bring chicken broth to a boil.
  3. Reduce heat and add potatoes, carrots, corn, salt and pepper. Cover and simmer for 10 minutes.
  4. In another pan, melt butter, add flour, and mix well. Slowly add milk and cook until it thickens. Stir in cheese and mix until it’s all melted.
  5. Add the cheese/milk mixture, as well as the cooked chicken, to veggie mixture and stir until combined and cooked through. ENJOY!
