I only used 2% milk so expected that I would need to add some cornstarch slurry to thicken it up to chowder consistency. Other than that it was perfect. Couldn't be easier to put together and it was a complete meal - meat potato and vegetable. My fresh thyme is under snow right now so I used dried. Read More

Quick filling and very tasty. Wonderful for a stormy rainy night. Dried thyme (2 tsp) also works well as does adding a couple of chopped carrots for a little added color. Read More

this is a good recipe for a great chowder. My only suggestion is to add a good dash of sherry (or cooking sherry) at the end. It makes the whole soup taste rich and gives it a beautiful aroma! Read More

We really liked the flavor of this but it was a bit runny. I added cornstarch (mixed into a little of the broth then stirred into the soup) during cooking and then let it sit a little while after cooking and that thickened it up a bit. I think adding a can of cream of mushroom soup might also help thicken it up and add some more flavor next time. I used whole milk instead of half and half because that's what I had. I also added about 2 cups of shredded cheddar at the end of cooking and we topped our bowls of soup with a little more cheddar. Read More

Great soup. I combined this recipe with another chicken and corn chowder recipe (also on allrecipes.com). Left out the thyme (I just don't care for it). Added 1 clove of minced garlic in with the onions used half & half combined with corn starch instead of milk and added 1 can of cream-style corn in with the frozen corn. I also sauted the chicken in the bacon fat along with the onions and garlic for added flavor. Topped with the bacon and added cheddar cheese. The soup turned out very creamy and hearty. My husband and I both loved it. Read More

Great. I don't use the bacon because my brother doesn't eat pork; just cut the onions into rings so my husband can pick them out easier - he hates onions. Those were the only changes. We make this about once a month. Love it. Read More
