Chicken and Veggie Corn Chowder


December 25, 2010 by Dana

I have been on a pretty big soup kick lately.  Over the past few weeks, I have made Classic Chicken Soup, Ancho Pepper Hominy Soup, Kale and Tiny Meatball Soup, and, most recently, Chicken and Veggie Corn Chowder.

I would love to say that it’s because of the cold weather.  That I was satisfying a craving for something warm and comforting on these chilly days.  Or maybe that it was a coincidence.  I just happened to be in a soup frame of mind.  I’d even prefer to say that it was because I was sick, and needed some good old fashioned comfort food.

But none of those are the reasons for my soup making streak.  They would be too…. normal.

No, the logic behind my soup making tirade is that I had 320 ounces of chicken broth to get rid of.  Because I bought ten 32oz containers at the store last month.  Which were taking up too much of my cabinet space.

And why did I have 10 containers of broth, you ask?  Because I thought they were on sale.  But they weren’t.  And I had already asked the cashier so many questions about it that I thought it would be silly to put them back.

Well, I assure you, it was sillier to keep all of them.

The bright side is that it did result in some pretty tasty soup creations… especially the Chicken and Veggie Corn Chowder.  In fact, it was so good, that I entered it in the New England Country Soup Challenge.  You can find the recipe here… and while you’re there, vote for me!

If you really love me (and why wouldn’t you?) you can vote for me once per day every day until January 9….  That’s 16 chances to vote, so you have no excuse not to!

    320 oz of chicken broth? Isn’t that 16 pounds? that’s hilarious! I wish you the greatest of luck in using it all up ;] Perhaps you can freeze what you aren’t able to use right away? At least it is letting you get creative with you soups… this chowder looks amazing. And it’s perfect timing because it’s winter!
