Easy Chicken Corn Chowder

It's been a really cold winter here.  That being said, we have eaten a lot of soup.  This past week I wanted to try something new using ingredients we already had on hand.  This is what I came up with.  Enjoy!!

Chicken Corn Chowder

1 can (10oz) of chunk chicken
1 can (15.25 oz) whole kernel sweet corn
1/2 onion, chopped
3 medium potatoes, peeled & cubed
4 c water
4 chicken bouillon cubes
3 TBSP corn starch & 1/2 c cold water, mix together, set aside
1 c heavy whipping cream

Put chicken, corn, onion, potatoes, water and bouillon in a pot on high heat, bring to a boil.  Turn to medium/low heat, simmer covered for about 8 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.  Turn heat back up and bring soup to boiling.  Then add the cornstarch/water mixture.  This is to thicken it up.  Boil for 1-2 minutes.  Then add whipping cream.  Salt & Pepper to taste.  Top with cheese (optional)

Pin It!
