Chicken and Corn Chowder

Serves 6

Chicken and corn chowder is a popular soup in Pennsylvania Dutch and Amish country. This is a very easy recipe, but takes a little time if you cook the chicken from scratch. For a quick version on a busy night, cook the chicken several days ahead and refrigerate until you need it. The soup will come together in no time. Alternately, you can use store-bought broth and cooked chicken. However you prepare it, I hope you enjoy.


Place the chicken in a large pot with the broth and just enough water to almost cover the chicken. Add the salt and pepper, celery, carrot, onion, sprig of parsley, and bay leaf. Bring to a boil; reduce heat. Cover and simmer until tender, about 1-1/2 hours. Remove chicken from pot. Discard the skin and bones. Chop the meat into desired-size pieces but not too small. Strain the broth, discard most of the fat, and return to the pot. Add the potatoes and cook, covered, until tender, about 30 minutes. Add the corn and cook until tender and hot, about 5 minutes. Add the eggs and taste for seasoning. Stir in the cream and heat just until ready to boil. Stir in the parsley and serve.
