I made this recipe a few times. My son loved it and would ask for it at times. He asked for the recipe since he has moved out in his own a few years ago. So Ill share with you. I need to make me some, without corn though, sadly.
◦ 4 tblsp butter (2 tblsp for veggies and 2 tblsp for chicken) ◦ 4 tblsp olive oil (2 tblsp for veggies and 2 tblsp for chicken) ◦ 1 - 1/2 sweet onion ◦ 1-2 carrots ◦ 1-2 celery stalks ◦ 2-4 chicken breasts ◦ 2 tblsp flour ◦ 2-4 cups chicken broth (2 tsp heaping Better than Bouillon in 1 cup hot water to disolve) ◦ Salt & Pepper ◦ Frozen corn, small bag ◦ Frozen (sweet) peas, small bag ◦ 1-2 cups heavy whipping cream
-Chop onion, carrots and celery.
In a deep pot, put 2 tblsp of olive oil and 2 tblsp butter. Add chopped veggies and salt and pepper and sauté over medium heat.
-In a pan (skillet), add remaining butter and olive oil and add the chicken breasts. Cook both sides, but only until there is a small amount of pink or just turned all white inside. Then set aside.
-When the veggies are soft and some browning has happened, add flour. Mix around for 1-2 minutes to cook the flour.
-Add the broth and put stove on medium high to high. Mix well, broth should start to thicken alittle. Once it comes to a slight boil, set heat down to medium low. Add bags of veggies and stir well. Add cream and mix well. Cut chicken into bite sized pieces and add to broth to the mixture and mix.
-Let the chowder to warm throughly, about 20 on the medium low setting.
