Chicken & Corn Chowder

By

My three children love this soup!. It's great to include this in a flask in your child’s lunchbox when the weather gets cold. For a vegetarian option; leave out the shredded chicken and use vegetable stock. Sweetcorn is a wholegrain as well as a vegetable and research shows that regularly consuming wholegrain foods reduces the risk of heart disease and certain cancers by 30%.

  • I recently made this soup for myself and my 2 year old and it was fab!  So easy and quick to make and it was eaten just as quick - I also froze a portion for my son for another day (I just didn’t add the cream).  For the first time, I only blended half of it as per the recipe, however my son wasn’t so keen so next time I will blend the whole amount.
