I make a chicken corn chowder that is very similar to this recipe. I add frozen corn ,a can of cream corn and I shred the chicken. Also add some dried basil. It's delicious.

I love recipes where I don't have to put any ingredients on my shopping list; they become "go to" recipes when you need to put together a quick, hearty meal. This soup is such a nice change from chicken noodle or chicken rice soup. I did add one more cup of broth than the recipe called for; I used canned broth and would have had about 1 cup left over from the 2 cans I opened so I just added the extra and it tasted great. Very flavorful and definitely fits my guidelines for comfort food. I am so glad there were leftovers for tomorrow night! Salad, French bread or hearty sandwich and soup: perfect!

Yummy, this soup is delicious and a definite keeper! As I do with all my chicken soups, I added a bay leaf, a bit of sage, thyme and rosemary; these herbs add wonderful depth of flavour.

We always double this recipe because it is plain old-fashioned goodness. One recipe is not enough!

This lacks a little bit in flavor, so I made sure to season my chicken with garlic, onion, salt and pepper before adding it to the chowder. Everyone loved this so I will be making it again.

Easy, quick, and delicious. Just to try and cut down on the carbs a little I only used 1 T of flour along with 2 c of heavy whipping cream instead of the milk. Also did not have chicken broth so I used 3 c water with 2 bouillon cubes and omitted salt. It was perfect!

this recipe is great, registered as a member of this site just so i could say that i also occasionally use steak chunks instead and it's amazing. i just brown the steak chunks a bit before adding to the stew and use beef broth instead of chicken broth! it's a cold night favorite and tastes great in a bread bowl :)
