• Chicken Corn Chowder

    Date: 2011.11.17 | Category: recipes | Tags: ,,,

    I consider myself a lucky woman that my husband likes soups and stews and chowders.  I know a lot of men don’t consider a soup hearty enough for dinner. This chicken corn chowder is one of Chris’ favorites, especially when the weather starts to get chilly!

    1 pound chicken breasts (I throw mine in still frozen!)
    1 can creamed corn
    1 cup frozen corn
    1 can cream of potato soup
    2 cans chicken broth
    1/2 cup bacon pieces (I use the ones from Costco)
    2 cups diced potato (I sometimes skip these if I don’t have any on hand)

    1 jar queso cheese (we use the store brand sold near their salsa)
    8 oz sour cream (we use light)

    Add first 7 ingredients to the crock pot and cook on low 10 hours or so (I’m sure the recipe says something reasonable like 6-7 hours, but I’m always at work!).  Shred chicken and stir in queso and sour cream 15 minutes before serving.  If soup is too thin, thicken with instant mashed potatoes.  Serve in large bowls and top with shredded cheddar and bacon bits.
