“With lots of chicken and ham, this lightened-up corn chowder has become a favorite at my house,” relates Janet Boote of Hull, Iowa. “I like to use my own frozen sweet corn when it's available.”

    I love this recipe!! We had a great corn chowder at a lodge in Wyoming one summer and I have been looking for a recipe that has the same consistency and good flavor, yet not full of fat. So far, this is my favorite. I like the ham in it, but you can make it without also.
