Chicken & Corn Chowder - from Family Circle
« on: February 22, 2012, 03:09:03 am »
I'm posting this in the Kids' section because it's my 6yo's favourite, however it's fine for the whole family, if a little bland for grownups! Converted from Family Circle's Cooking - a Commonsense Guide (my bible).

Name of Recipe: Chicken & Corn Chowder
Number of People: 4 adults
Ingredients:
2 x Chicken fillets, cut into pieces
20g butter
5 spring onions, roughly chopped
2 rashers bacon, roughly chopped
1-2 celery sticks, roughly chopped
450-500g potatoes, diced
2 cups/500ml chicken stock (sorry forgot to weigh)
1 1/2 cups milk (I think this equals 400g, forgot to weigh again!)
420g can creamed corn
700g water



Preparation:
Place water in TM bowl & chicken into simmering basket. Insert basket & cook 12-15 mins on 100/speed 3. You may need to stir chicken half way through to ensure it is cooked
Remove basket, drain TM bowl. Place chicken in bowl & shred 3-4 secs/Reverse/speed 4. Remove chicken & set aside.
In clean TM bowl, place onions,bacon & celery and chop 2-3 secs/speed 6.
Add butter and cook 3 mins Varoma temp/speed 1.
Add potatoes and cook 2 mins/Varoma temp/speed 1.
Add chicken stock, cook 15 mins 100/Reverse/speed soft, or until potatoes are tender
Add the shredded chicken, milk and creamed corn and heat through - struggled with this bit, took about 15 mins on 80/Reverse/Speed Soft I think?
Serve with cracked pepper


Tips/Hints: This is my first conversion so apologies if some of the instructions are a bit vague. I know there's other chicken & corn recipes on here but I'd be in Big Trouble if I messed with this recipe so had to convert!
You could of course cook the chicken any other way, or even use bbq chicken; I used Tenina's method but I've been asked NOT to shred the chicken next time - DD likes it chunky!

bkmundt - Our almost 6 year old loved it, as did us adults. Thanks for the recipe. I added only 300 ml of milk and that was great for us. I like thicker soups!

Glad you like it bkmundt, I make this about once a fortnight in winter - freezes well too. Lately i've been steaming the chicken first then chopping it up for a chunkier texture.

deedub - just wondering if you have ever tried chopping the chicken into pieces and cooking it in the soup for the 15 mins when you add the chicken stock? I'm feeling extra lazy today!

No I haven't classmyth, only because the original recipe called for cooked chicken. I don't see why you couldn't do it though - let me know how you go, I'm all for keeping things simple!
