This is a really simple soup to throw together with leftover chicken or turkey. I like to add some herbs or Mrs. Dash to jazz it up a bit. From Favorite Chicken Recipes.

Very easy to prepare and get on the table, and a great dish to use up leftover chicken. You could also used canned chicken in this recipe and it would work well... The soup is delish! I added some butter for added flavor, just as I do with my chowder recipes. Gives it a great taste and added dimension to the soup. I used low sodium chicken broth and watched it on the salt and added lots of pepper. I loved the combination of the chicken and corn... Delicious flavors. I didn't add the bacon in with the recipe. I just sprinkled some on top before serving. Also, I thickened it up right before serving, as I served it in homemade bread bowls. YUMMY! Thanks Lazyme for sharing with us! Linda
