Chicken corn chowder is the perfect dish for those cold winter days or even in the Spring or Fall. You can also make a nice batch with some fresh corn in the Summer. Whenever you want a quick and delicious dish, this is it.
You may want to top off your chicken corn chowder with some bacon bits or even some crackers. Add a slice of bread and you are good to go. I do like to use the Yukon gold potatoes because they hold their shape a lot better than your russet potatoes. But, you can use whatever you have!
I have been playing Spot It with my cute little granddaughter who is 3. She is so sweet and she will help me find what is on my card. Ha ha. We usually come out pretty close to the same as far as winning goes.
It is funny how I can usually see what is on her card and she can see what is on mine. Sometimes if you turn the card just a little it gives you a new perspective and you can find what matches right away. I love playing it with her and it is truly good for both of our brains. You might want to get your family one of these fun little games. They are fun and good for all ages.

Tips and Tricks For Chicken Corn Chowder:
- Sometimes I use dehydrated onions in place of the chopped onions, real onions make me cry! Ha ha!!!
- Some people think that cumin is too strong and if this is you, use 1/2 the amount. You will want to have at least some though, otherwise it just isn’t the same.
- If you do not have garlic, I use about 3/4 teaspoon garlic salt.
- Try this soup with some corn bread!
