Chicken, Asparagus & Corn Chowder

Chicken and asparagus make a light, comforting soup that’s easy to do with common ingredients. If we have rotisserie chicken, it goes into this soup. —Jennifer Vo, Irvine, California

    I have never taken the time to write a review. This soup IS an award winner. I found it by Googling "award winning soup recipes" so I could have something to take to the office's annual "SouperBowl". The competition is fierce and I walked away with the Golden Ladle! Like Stephanie, I used regular half and half. Also, I used rotisserie chicken as a time saver. I would recommend quadrupling the recipe if you're feeding a group.

    Big hit! I changed up the recipe a lil instead of using asparagus I used green beans and it tasted phenomenal!

    Delicious! I made it as written except I used regular half and half. It gets tastier each new day. It will definitely go into my "Keepers" file!

    I made it pretty much per the recipe and it was very good. We added some tea biscuits on the side. Very filling!
