Chicken and Corn Chowder With Sweet Potatoes

"This is a prize winning recipe in Cook's Country magazine (slightly modified). It is a delicious chowder with a has corn muffin mix as a thickening agent. The sweet potatoes also add something a little different from the usual chowder. An added bonus is that it goes together fairly quickly. This received rave reviews from my weekly soup night gang. Try this chowder--your tummy will thank you."

    It's no wonder this soup was a prize winner. It is creamy without being heavy or gloppy, very flavorful in spite of the simple combination of ingredients, comforting, and absolutely delicious!
    This was so easy to put together, and quick too (once the potatoes cooked). I made with 1% milk and didn't have monterey jack cheese so used a combo of mozzarella and provolone. I made a 2-serving batch and it was the perfect amount for lunch today with a bowl leftover for tomorrow. I liked how the corn muffin mix thickened it up quickly. Made for PRMR.

    What a great tasting soup! I didn't use whole milk [2% instead]; did use low sodium chicken broth; didn't add any additional salt; & after all that I DID pretty much follow the recipe & had a great tasting chowder! Thanks for sharing! [Tagged, made & reviewed for Please Review My Recipe cooking game]


I am the mother of four boys--two sons and two stepsons. I am also the grandmother of one very sweet and precocious 3 yr old boy. I was once a healthcare administrator but quit a few years ago to stay home with my youngest. Since he has started to school, I am back to working part time. <br> Next to my family, cooking is my passion. I have a wonderful husband who will try anything. He is my biggest fan and a discerning critic. A couple of years ago, we started a dinner club with friends who enjoy our passion for good food. We have shared many wonderful meals together. <br> My favorite cookbook would have to be a family cookbook that my mom and cousin and I put together a couple of years ago. We shared all the favorites that had been passed down through the generations as well as new favorites. <br> My biggest pet peeve is picky eaters who refuse to try anything new. It bothers me more with adults than with kids, but I love that my six year old will eat just about anything I put in front of him. There is something very gratifying about "grooming" the next generation of foodies. <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <br><img src="" border="0" alt="Photo Sharing and Video Hosting at Photobucket"> <br><img src=""> <br><img src="">
