Cheesy Chicken Chowder

This chowder can be made pretty quickly.  I used leftover rotisserie chicken, but you could also use canned chicken.  You can poach your chicken in the broth before you get started also.  It is yummy!!

  • 32-oz. can chicken broth
  • 2 cups potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup carrots, peeled and thinly sliced
  • 1/2 cup onion, diced
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • 1/4 cup butter
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 2 cup milk
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 2 cups cooked chicken chopped
  • 15-oz. can whole-kernel corn, drained

Bring broth to a simmer in a large stockpot over medium heat.  (This is when you would poach your chicken if doing so.)  Remove chicken and add vegetables, salt and pepper; cook until tender.  Melt butter in a separate saucepan; add flour and whisk until smooth.  Gradually add milk to butter mixture; cook and stir until mixture starts to thicken.  Add to stockpot; stir until well mixed.  Add cheese; stir until melted.  Add chicken and corn.  Simmer until heated through, about 3 to 5 minutes.

Serves 6.
