How can it be that time again, I mean it seems like only yesterday that I was revealing my secret blog partner’s recipe for last month, The Secret Recipe Club visits Scotland & Seattle with Cullen Skink (Scottish Fish Soup), and here we are again, four weeks later, and how time has flown by…….this month I was delighted to be paired up with Jenni, from The Gingered Whisk, a blog that I know quite well, as from time to time I have perused all of the lovely recipes over there, for North American inspiration. Here’s what Jenni says about her blog……..”Welcome to The Gingered Whisk! These are tales of the adventures that happen in my kitchen, however messy they might be. This is the food that we actually eat, in the house that we actually eat it in, and the stories that go along with them. It isn’t fancy, but its mine, and I would like to share it with you!”

I wanted to tell you more about Jenni, but her site is right-click disabled, so, why not pop over there to read more about here…….About Jenni, and let her know that I sent you! Anyway, she has LOTS and LOTS of lovely recipes, and I had difficulty in choosing just one, but, finally I plumped for SOUP again, but, it is the season for soups and stews, and I really loved the look of Jenni’s Chicken Corn Chowder, so the decision was made and the soup was made one day last week AFTER I had cooked a roast chicken here: Lazy Blue and White Lunch: Garlic Roast Chicken with Root Vegetables Recipe.

I adore creamy chowders, and although I LOVED the ingredients in Jenni’s soup, I prefer mine to be liquidised for a really creamy finish; so, I made exactly to her recipe, but then pulsed it in my new Kenwood Titanium Chef liquidiser for a thick and creamy finish. Below is a photo of Jenni’s soup and mine is shown above and also again just below Jenni’s photo…..

Chicken Corn Chowder
by Jenni
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Cook Time: 30 minutes
Keywords: soup/stew carrots chicken corn fall winter

Ingredients (12 servings)
1 medium white onion, chopped
3 garlic cloves, minced
3 stalks celery, chopped
2-3 carrots, chopped
2 cans low sodium chicken broth – (I used Essential Cuisine chicken stock)
2-3 potatoes, chopped
2 cans creamed style corn – (I used whole corn on the cob)
1-2 bay leaves
shredded chicken – either three cooked breasts, or 1 rotisserie chicken (I used left over chicken from a roast)
milk
salt and pepper to taste
Instructions
In a large stock pot, saute the onions and celery until tender and the onions are slightly translucent.
Add the chicken broth and the carrots. Cook until carrots are soft.
Add the potatoes and bay leaves and cook until the potatoes are soft (but not mushy!)
Add corn and shredded chicken and let simmer for 10 minutes.
Add milk to desired thickness.
Salt and pepper to taste.
*If you would like the base of the soup to be a little thicker, more gravy like, remove some of the broth from the pot, place it in a cup, and whisk in some flour or cornstarch. Add this back to the pot and let simmer for a few minutes, until it is incorporated and the broth becomes thicker.

Chicken Corn Chowder – My way! Liquidised in my Kenwood Blender

The soup was delicious and full of hearty flavours and I served mine with fingers of home-made bread for a comforting lunch the other week. Again, I have had such a great time with my Secret Recipe Club partner, surfing through Jenni’s blog and drooling over all her recipes, it’s such a wonderful club to be part of, and I have discovered so many lovely new blogs and made new friends too. As this is a soup recipe, obviously (!!), I am also entering this recipe into the lovely Linzi’s (over at Lancashire Food) Season of Soups and Stews challenge, such a great idea, and DO add your soups and stews to her linky, plus, I used Essential Cuisine chicken stock in my recipe!

That’s it for today, I hope you have enjoyed meeting Jenni and that you may make her soup recipe……see you later with a CHOCOLATE review and a new GIVEAWAY! Have a wonderful week…….Karen.

    Your chicken corn chowder looks so inviting…especially with temperatures set to plummet this week. I could certainly enjoy a bowl or two of this on a cold day…it looks so creamy and inviting! :-)

    I love corn in soups – not sure why, but probably because I grew up surrounded by cornfields and it is just a staple in my diet :) Your chowder turned out fantastically!

    Happy reveal day!

    Oh, I’m glad you liked it! :) It is one of my favorite soups! It does look good blended together! I am usually too lazy to make more dirty dishes in the kitchen, so my food is mostly “rustic” LOL. And yes, I disabled the right click option because sometimes I put pictures of my little one up and I don’t want people to steal them! :) Thanks for all the super kind words you wrote about me!

      I understand about the right-click and it was NO problem as I did manage to say something about you! I love rustic soups too, but I also LOVE creamy chowder an I have just received and early Christmas present, a Kenwood Chef, so I HAD to play with the liquidiser! Karen
