Quick Chicken Corn Chowder Author: Canadian Living Credits: Quick Chicken Corn Chowder

A hearty soup is a simple, comforting meal at the end of a busy day. This chowder welcomes you home with a delicious m?lange of sweet corn, potatoes and savoury broth. Partially pur?eing the soup gives it a creamy texture so you don't have to add too much cream at the end. For a hit of Mexican flavour, top with fresh cilantro sprigs and serve with warm corn tortillas and lime wedges.
