Absolutely delicious! Very nice on a rainy day. I exchanged half the corn for diced carrot for extra flavour and colour. I also sprinkled on a little parmesan instead of the grated cheese. I don't think this would serve 8 people on it's own, more like 4. Very good and guilt free too!
An easy, tasty, and suprisingly hearty soup for a cold day. The carrots are a must (Thanks dale!). For a twist, I sauteed the chicken in garlic pepper and a little garlic salt. I also added some Mrs. Dash to the soup base. Note- it took almost 30 min for my potatoes to become tender.
Very tasty. I used a can of corn and added a dusting of Wondra for thickening at the end. Be sure to cut-up the chicken into little bite sizes as larger pieces tend to lack flavor on their own.
