This time of year, there’s really nothing more comforting than a warm bowl of soup. Am I right? Well, except for when it’s a chowder. Made using pantry staples. That’s incredible easy…

The shorter days and grey skies really have me yearning for comfort foods. And this recipe definitely fits the bill. A deliciously cheesy chicken chowder that can be made in just a few minutes. I usually use leftover chicken. However¬†there’s no shame in the store-bought rotisserie game. Just stay away from the canned stuff, ick!

A quick saute of stand-by veggies – all the usual suspects: onions, carrots, celery, garlic. Then some carbalicious goodness in the form of potatoes and corn join the party. With a good helping of shredded cheddar and heavy cream, ya know… to throw the richness factor just right over the edge.

Pair with a nice green salad, and some warm crusty bread. Sheer perfection! As with any soup, stew, or chowder Рthis just gets better after a day in the fridge. Perfect to whip a batch up and enjoy for lunch all week.
