It is FINALLY fall!! And that calls for all soups, including this heart-warming chicken & corn chowder.
How much do you love fall? I used to hate fall. Especially when I lived in Norway. It was so cold, and grey, and it rained all the time. Now, I love cold, rainy days. Put on a good movie, and eat some great food. As I got older I’ve learned to love all the seasons of the year. I love seeing the leaves turn orange, and the rain at night makes me sleep like a baby.
After moving to the states I’ve also come to love all things pumpkin spice and maple syrup. I even have pumpkin spice candles at home. The one thing I love the most about the fall is the food; soups, chowders, casseroles. I WANT IT ALL!
So, when I saw I had some chicken and creamed corn in the house, I decided TODAY was the perfect day to try out this creamy chicken & corn chowder. And let me tell you, I do not regret that decision. Not at all. Neither did my fiancè.
Creamy and delicious chicken & corn chowder
This recipe is easy to make, and only requires ingredients you probably already have at home. There’s some shredded chicken, creamy corn, cream, onion, celery, garlic, and cayenne pepper.
I also made some garlic toast to add some side crunch to this chowder. Super easy, just sliced bread with some garlic butter on each side for 10 minutes in the oven at 350F.
Alright, let’s get to this yummy recipe. And when you’ve devoured this chowder, head back over to my website and check out my products section.
