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.

Oh thanks heaps Kat. Brian (a Block addict) was telling me tonight how yum the soup looked (his attempt at hinting for it to be added to our menu plan for the next fortnight). I have been trying to print it form here but it’s not working.

I made this but swapped condensed chicken soup for condensed asparagus soup as I wanted to squeeze another vegetable in there. You may think it sounds disgusting but was a huge hit with my family (including my 2 and 5 year old!!).

Hi Katrina,

Would you please tell me, in this recipe did you use full cream milk? I only ever purchase skim milk, wiould skim milk be okay in this recipe? Or should I try reduced fat milk instead? Thank you so much for your help. The recipe looks really lovely.

It is delicious Nancy, I would say skim is fine to use, as you have the creamy condensed soup in this recipe as well. Hope you enjoy it : )

LOL, funny as it’s not a cooking show, I think they were showcasing a kitchen design or something at the time, can’t remember 🙂
