EEEK! Mom has had a bad cold so we’ve not been keeping up very well with cyberspace activities and have to admit Shopping Around The World was on our calendar for TOMORROW! Where did Mom come up with that one?!?!?! Oh well…………..we’ll just post our soup recipe TODAY!
My parents LOVE this one…….and I have to admit, since Mom has to make chick-hen to use in the recipe, I always get a bit of a hand-out so I like when she makes this!!! It’s her easy way of making Chicken Corn Chowder Soup!
2 tablespoons butter
1 jalapeño pepper, seeded and minced (optional!!!!!!)
2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
3 cups 2% reduced-fat milk
2 cups chopped roasted skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 breast halves)
1 1/2 cups fresh or frozen corn kernels (about 3 ears)
1 teaspoon chopped fresh or 1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1/4 teaspoon ground red pepper
1 (14 3/4-ounce) can cream-style corn
Melt the butter in a large Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion, celery, and jalapeño; cook for 3 minutes or until tender, stirring frequently. Add flour; cook 1 minute, stirring constantly. Stir in milk and remaining ingredients. Bring to a boil; cook until thick (about 5 minutes).
Easy Peasy – and MMMMMMMMMMMMMMMMM good! Since most of the items above are things you’d PROBABLY have in your cupboard anyway, we’re only including prices for a few of the items:
Chicken: on sale this week for $1.99 lb. !!!
Frozen Corn: 12 oz. $2.15
Mom says that was a good sale price for chicken breasts – at least around here………………………anyway, this is a very yummy soup so encourage your parents to make some so you can have some of the CHICKEN as a snackable!
