Chicken and Corn Chowder Soup

           Stirring out a soup is my ever favorite way of making a dinner meal for the three of us. We all three truly love steaming hot soup bowls, well there are exceptional days for Little Cuppy Cake. She mostly loves to dunk in a bread slice into her soup and eat the soup soaked bread. I try to make things simple food for most of our dinner nights. I always wanted to taste the famous Chowder Soup,  but never got to taste it, nor never did we place an order when we dined out.

Searching on homemade Chowder Soup , and seeing N number of recipes, i decided to mix and match recipes to create the one which i have in my kitty right now. So , i landed up on the Chicken & Corn Combo and i should say it was yum yum yum !!!! I had some Cooked Shredded Chicken in my freezer and so everything happened like a breeze.I served the soup with a sandwich for each one of us.
