This chowder is so hearty and filling. Itâ€™s full of the sweet flavor and crunch of corn, there are lots of juicy chunks of chicken, and then â€“ I top it with crispy bacon and cheese.
Soup, or rather chowder, doesnâ€™t get much better than this. Thick, creamy, and so flavorful. Even men will eat it.
