Chicken Chowder

Chicken Chowder

Diana Rattray
This chicken chowder is hearty enough to serve as a main dish with crusty bread, or serve it as a first course. This is delicious with or without the tomatoes, and leftovers are even tastier the next day.

  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 2 cups potatoes, small dice
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced carrot

Fry bacon in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; remove to paper towels to drain. Add butter to bacon drippings, if necessary, to make 3 tablespoons. Add celery, potatoes, onion, and carrot. Saute, stirring constantly, until onion and celery are tender. Stir in flour until well incorporated. Add chicken broth and seasoning or seasoned salt, stirring to blend well. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Cover and simmer for 12 minutes. Add the diced chicken and corn; simmer for 7 minutes longer, until vegetables are tender. Add half-and half and tomatoes. Heat through and taste. Add salt and pepper, as needed.
Serves 4 to 6.

so delicious!, Member avideto

I omit the tomatoes, but make it otherwise identically. My only question is: at what point do you use the bacon?? It says set aside to drain, then the recipe doesn't mention adding it in at any point..?
