My foolproof family dinner - Chicken and Corn Chowder
And the best part? It's cheap and all of my kids love it (including the toddler)
Okay, so here it is! My foolproof, family friendly, hug in a bowl, super easy and budget friendly Chicken and Corn Chowder!
Pro Tip: just call it 'soup' or 'stew' if your kids look at you suss because they don't know what 'chowder' is and you think that might put them off.
Chicken & Corn Chowder
- 1 onion
- 5 bacon rashers (I prefer streaky bacon)
- 2 carrots
- 2 potatoes
- 1 cooked barbecue chicken (from the supermarket) with meat removed from carcass
- 1 can corn kernels (do not drain)
- 1 can of cream of chicken soup
- 1/2 L milk
Add a little olive oil to a large heavy bottomed pan (I use a cast iron pot.) Saute onion and diced bacon until the onions have softened.
Add dice carrot and diced potato. Add the chicken, then the can of corn kernels (including the liquid). Add the can of soup, then the milk.
Simmer for 30 mins or until veggies are soft. Add water if you prefer more liquid in your soup or leave as is for a thicker, stew-like consistency.
Garnish with salt and pepper and serve with warm crusty bread.
