Yes, I know it’s 110 degrees! I live in the desert and it’s hot at heck out here, but a girl still needs to eat.
I previously told everyone I am addicted to soup, salad, cheese, and I forgot to mention chowder.
I love a warm bowl of creamy Chicken and Corn Chowder.
Eating chowder is so comforting, it’s like a favorite warm robe or fuzzy slippers, or in my case a nice piece of good cheese with fresh sourdough bread and grapes.
Yes, everything leads back to cheese for me, lol.
This is another quick 30 minute meal.
I used boneless, skinless, chicken thighs because I think they have more flavor than chicken breast.
First, saute the chicken thighs with a little extra virgin olive oil, add the veggies and broth and bring to a boil.
Reduce heat and simmer for about 10 minutes.
Next, add mashed potato flakes, cheese and milk. Use whatever milk you want, low fat, high fat, and/or heavy cream.
Yes, heavy cream, if you want a really rich Chicken and Corn Chowder.
The chowder is all done and ready to dig in.
My family was in a uproar, saying that it’s too hot for chowder.
Hey, this Chicken and Corn Chowder is what I wanted for lunch, and I will eat the whole pot.
I guess certain people in this house will be eating sandwiches for lunch.
Oh, and it freezes well.
