With the change of season and clothes comes a slight change of dinner menu items. My slow cooker will be making more of an appearance (can I get a hallelujah for the slow cooker?!), and soups will be added back into our evening rotation.
Last night it was rainy, our tree was up and lit, and nothing could cap the night better than a piping hot bowl of creamy soup.
Corn Chicken Chowder
1 can cream corn
1 can whole kernel corn
3-4 chicken breast
1 cup diced onion
2 cups chicken broth
1/4 cup butter
2 cups half and half
Place potatoes, both cans of corn, onions, chicken broth, and chicken breast in slow cooker.
-- I placed my partially thawed chicken breast on top. 30 minutes prior to serving I shredded the chicken breast and placed them back in the slow cooker.
-- If you like your chowder more soupy do not drain the whole kernel corn. If you like your chowder a bit creamier drain the whole kernel corn prior to putting it in your slow cooker.
Cook on high for 7-8 hours.
Add butter and half and half.
Mash potatoes to your desired consistency.
-- I simply used a wooden spoon to mash the potatoes against the side of the slow cooker.
Cook for an additional 30 minutes, on high.
This dish was the epitome of comfort food, and a hit in our house that will surely be repeated several times during these cooler winter months.
