Wonderful Chowder! With temps dipping to minus 40 here on the prairies what could be better then soup! Your Chicken and Corn Chowder so good it has already has seen to a second making. Made three pots of soup for Sunday supper serving with freshly baked bread - everyone loved the variety - your hearty chowder was an absolute hit. Made as posted using the heavy cream and pureeing 2 cups pf the corn the first time around - using half and half and simply adding frozen kennel the second - both worked equally well. Thank you for sharing this wonderful soup which has been added to my Famiy Favorites Cookbook.
Wow, very good. Was a bit time intensive but next time I may try frozen corn or canned chicken. I used buttermilk instead of cream and it added a wonderful flavor.
