Good morning! Before I show you the delicious soup I cooked this weekend, I just want to focus your attention on a couple of new pages that I've added to my navigation bar. Now, you can click through the Projects and Recipes pages for easy access to all of your favorite DIY projects and delicious meals that I blog about here on a daily basis! The projects are divided into category, and then organized by date, and the recipes are organized alphabetically by category. I'd love if you took a moment to check out these new pages!
Today, I have a delicious soup to share with you - Chicken Corn Chowder! I stayed pretty close to this recipe as I cooked it, but I do think in the future that cooking some bacon in the pan for more flavoring first would add a nice touch, as would using cream instead of skim milk. However, this delicious recipe does come from Cooking Light and so, I kept it light.
To start, I gathered up my ingredients:
|Please forgive the blurry photo.|
6 green onions, just the white part, sliced
4 tablespoons flour, divided
2 cooked boneless, skinless chicken breasts, sliced
1/4 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon pepper
2 16 oz. packages frozen corn kernels
2 cups fat-free chicken broth
2 cups fat-free milk
First, melt the butter in your dutch oven over medium-high heat.
Then, add your sliced green onions and cook for about 2 minutes.
Next, add 2 tablespoons of flour and cook for about a minute, stirring constantly with a whisk.
Then, add your chicken broth, salt, pepper, sliced chicken breasts and 1 package of corn. Bring to a boil and then reduce the heat and allow to simmer for approximately 10 minutes.
While allowing this to simmer, mix together the milk and 3/4 of the remaining corn kernels together in a blender. (You can save the rest of the corn kernels for another meal.)
Once combined, add to the pan, and simmer for 5 minutes.
After thoroughly heated throughout, add the remaining 2 tablespoons of flour and allow to simmer for 5 more minutes.
Finally, ladle into soup bowls and enjoy!
This soup was so easy to make and it is delicious - Josh has been devouring the leftovers! This is officially my 6th soup of 26 (more on this challenge here) and you can see the other soups by clicking here: 1, 2, 3, 4 and 5. Do you have any favorite Spring soups? I'd love to hear about them if you do!
