Potato Corn Chowder
This is a favorite, stand-by recipe in our house, and we make it regularly. Although bacon adds such fabulous flavor, you can choose to omit.
3 slices bacon, diced
1 lb. chicken breasts, skinless/boneless, cut in bite sized pieces
1/3-1/2 cup onion, chopped
3/4 cup celery, chopped
4 cups corn kernels, divided
4 cups chicken broth, divided
2 cups potatoes, diced
1/2 cup cream
2 Tbsp. parsley, chopped (optional)
Salt and pepper
Brown bacon until crispy, set aside. Save approx. 2 Tbsp. bacon drippings in the pan. Add chicken, onion and celery and cook for 10-15 minutes until the chicken is done. Stir often.
Puree 2 cups of the corn and 1 cup of the chicken broth in a blender until smooth. Add pureed mixture and the remaining corn and broth, and the potatoes to the chicken and vegetables. Simmer 20-30 minutes, until the potatoes are tender. Stir in cream, parsley and bacon and heat through, about 3-4 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
