This hearty chowder is sure to warm you up when it's chilly outside. In a hurry? No problem! You likely have the ingredients on hand in your pantry. Add some crispy crumbled bacon and some sharp cheddar cheese. What are you waiting for?

Disclaimer: I have always used recipes as a guide and use my instincts and experience to alter or omit ingredients as I cook. Therefore, it has always been a challenge when sharing recipes with others. I doubt I make dishes the same way twice. So, I advise you to use my recipes the same way. Trust your experience and adjust to your personal taste~Roby

This hearty chowder will definitely warm you up on a cold day. It's creamy with a lovely smokey flavor from the ham. There's a pop of sweetness thanks to the corn. The potatoes are tender and the chicken remains very moist in the broth. Seasoned perfectly, this is a fantastic cool weather meal.

Note: We misread the ingredients and added raw chicken. To fix that, we boiled the soup an extra 10 minutes to make sure the chicken was cooked through. The chicken came out super tender. If you don't have cooked chicken handy, raw will work too. Just adjust the cooking time. Test Kitchen Avatar The Test Kitchen
