Easy Chicken and Corn Chowder

I’m a big fan of The Block, I have been watching it since Season 1 when Jamie Durie was the host and also watched the season my lovely blogging pal Katrina Chambers and her sister Amie were on the show.  The contestants had a cook off and Katrina and Amie won by cooking their mums Chicken and Corn Chowder.

This chicken and corn chowder is a scrumptious thick and chunky soup, which fills up those hungry bellies a little more than a pureed type of soup.

I made their Chicken and Corn Chowder the day after I saw it on the show, have adapted the recipe and now it’s one of my go-to chicken soup recipes each winter ever since. I tweaked the recipe ever so slightly by adding in some garlic. It’s a scrumptious thick and chunky soup, which fills up those hungry bellies a little more than a pureed type of soup.
