Once again this is a throw together recipe. I will try to be as
accurate as I can. The more you cook the more you will see that
you do things by sight and feel.
Cut up 1 - 2 chicken breasts into bite sized pieces.
I sort of stir fry the chicken. Quickly cook it in 1 T. olive oil. You
can boil this in water and create your own broth, but I'm not
the most patient person. This method works well for me.
Cut up about 8 ounces of cooked ham.
Chop up one small onion and about three celery stalks.
Dump the 32 ounces of broth into a large pan and add the
Peel 4 - 6 potatoes.
Cut into bite sized pieces and add to the broth mixture. Bring the
broth to a boil and cook until potatoes are tender.
Add 3 Cups milk.
Add about 4 cups of corn. In the summer I take about 4 or 5 ears of corn and blanch it then cut the corn off and use it
straight from the cob - yummy. Add salt and pepper to taste -
at least 1/4 t. pepper.
Bring the mixture to a boil. Mix together 4 T flour with 1/2 C of
water. Slowly add to the boiling mixture - stirring until the
chowder is as thick as you like. You can use corn starch if you
Add some nice crusty bread and it's the "brrr it's cold outside"
