Quick Chicken and Corn Chowder

another chowder, another night with ian.  tim joined us for this one.  and it was simple, simple, simple!  i have to give a big shout out to giant eagle and their 4.99 rotisserie chicken.  it might be my favorite thing to buy there because it’s cheap, delicious and i can use it in so many things, like this dish.

you’ll need:

  • 1 Tbs butter
  • generous 1/2 cup chopped onion
  • 1/4 cup chopped celery
  • 2 1/2 Tbs all-purpose flour
  • 2 1/2 cups 2% milk
  • 1/2 cup chicken broth
  • 2 cups roasted chicken, shredded
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn
  • 1/4 tsp dried thyme
  • dash of cayenne
  • salt to taste
  • avocado for garnish

melt the butter in a large pot over medium heat.  add the onion and celery and cook for about 3 minutes, or until vegetables are tender.  Add the flour and cook for 1 minute, stirring constantly.  Stir in the milk and remaining ingredients, simmer until thickened, about 5 minutes.  Serve with avocado and freshly ground pepper if desired.

i think it took about 15-20 minutes to pull together.  had a nice sweet taste to it, courtesy of the corn, and it was warm and filling.  it makes a lot!  so feed your friends or prepare to have leftovers.  yum!
