Chicken Corn Chowder

Chicken Corn Chowder by

It finally snowed in my area of Virginia.  Snow gets tiresome if it comes too often but it’s nice to have some at least once a year.  We love soup any time of the year and it’s particularly nice on a cold and snowy evening.  I first made Chicken Corn Chowder in December of 2002 and have been  making it regularly every since.

Are you wondering how I know when I first made Chicken Corn Chowder?  When I clip a recipe from a magazine or print one, I date it after I’ve made it.  Winners get added to recipe binders which act as my cookbooks when I plan meals.


Mushrooms, chicken, corn, and orzo make a delicious combination for this soup.  It is thickened after cooking with milk and flour.  This recipe definitely gets a thumbs up at my house.

  • 2 T all-purpose flour
  1. Melt butter in a large Dutch oven over medium-high heat; ad mushrooms and onion, and saute 5 minutes or until tender.
  2. Add chicken broth and next 9 ingredients; simmer 10 minutes or until orzo is tender.
  3. Stir together milk and flour in a small bowl; gradually stir into chowder, and simmer 5 minutes.



The beautiful soup bowl that I’m using to serve Chicken Corn Chowder is one from a set that my friend Beth at school gave me.  The pattern is Condoro by Noritake.  These beauties were headed to Goodwill but Beth asked me if I wanted them before taking them there.  This dish-a-holic said yes in a New York minute!  Isn’t this a pretty pattern?


There’s still a month of winter left and I’m sure to make Chicken Corn Chowder a few more times.  If you are looking for a recipe to add to your meal plan, I encourage you to give this one a try.

    Made the chowder tonight for dinner. It was great! The only thing I did differently was simmer it for about an hour because I had plenty of time. I imagine it’s going to be even better after it sits overnight. Thanks for posting this recipe! It’s definitely a keeper!

  3. This looks so good! I’ve pinned so I can give it a try!
