I made a big batch of this to take to a church luncheon, expecting some leftovers for the next day. No such luck -- it was all gone. Now I'll have to make more.

I made this tonight using fresh sweet corn. It turned out to be a meal in a bowl! Delicious! My husband said this was a perfect alternative to his favorite chicken and dumplings. I followed other reviewer's suggestion and sweated the onions and celery before combining with the soup stock. A quick meal and a great way to use up cooked chicken. Thx for sharing.
