I first made Chicken Corn Chowder in December of 2002 and have been making it regularly ever since.
We love soup any time of the year and it’s particularly nice on a cold and snowy evening.
It recently snowed in my area of Virginia and I made this soup for us to enjoy after a day of enjoying watching the snow fall and going for a delightful walk in the freshly fallen white stuff.
Snow gets tiresome if it comes too often but it’s nice to have some at least once a year.
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.
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?
