Chicken Corn Chowder with Fresh Corn

Updated on August 2, 2014

Taking some extra time to make a fresh pot of soup is so worth it. The fresh taste of this Chicken Corn Chowder is quite delicious and a little bit goes a long way when paired with a crisp salad and crusty bread for dipping.

This is a great soup to make during the summer when corn on the cob is at its peak. I put my corn straight up in a large bowl and slice the kernels off in a downward motion.

If you are feeding a crowd, double the recipe and make a day ahead. It's so easy to reheat in a slow cooker the next day.
