Corn and Chicken Chowder

I grew up eating corn chowder made from our own sweet corn and seasoned with bacon. I never thought of putting chicken or cheese in it, but they both really make it special. This a version of a recipe that I clipped from Cooking Light magazine. I made a few changes to suit my family's taste.

This hit the spot on the cold Fall night we were having. I made with red potatoes and left the skin on. I also added about 1 1/2 cups cheese since we like cheesy soup. Made for Newest Zaar Tag.
