12 small potatoes cut in half or 2 large Yukon gold potatoes cut in large dice

3 Tbsp flour

1 quart/4 cups chicken stock

3 to 4 cups shredded or cubed, cooked chicken

2 cups frozen corn

1-2 cups water

Salt and pepper to taste

Optional: ½ cup cream, half and half, or milk (Add at the end when the chowder is on a low simmer.)



Melt butter and heat oil together in a large soup pot or Dutch oven over medium heat.


Cook onion, celery and carrots until onions and celery are tender.


Sprinkle the flour over all and cook for a minute while stirring.
