      A feast for the eyes as well as your palate! The sweetness of the red peppers, sweet potatoes and corn is offset by the bacon, chicken, thyme and marjoram. The half and half adds richness and a pale yellow background for the red, green, orange and yellow colors of the vegetables and herbs. I started by cooking 3 boneless chicken breasts in the bacon drippings. I set them aside and sauteed the vegetables and herbs having to substitute green onions for the leeks. I substituted red skin yams for the sweet potatoes(for color), heavy cream for the half and half (personal preference) and used 8 cups of chicken broth and 1 cup of water because I had 4 cup boxes of broth. Well, you have done it again Miss Annie! I think I need to add a special category to my cookbook just for your recipes.

      I make a very goog corn chowder that my family loves, but never thought of adding sweet potatoes to it. I made this recipe for a halloween party in crock pot. Yummy. Everyone loved it.

      Took this to a gathering where soup is the theme. It was a hit. It is a wonderfully delicious soup that is perfect for those cold winter nights.
