Ingredient Checklist

Directions

Instructions Checklist
  • Melt butter in a saucepan over medium heat; stir flour, basil, pepper, and salt into butter and pour in chicken broth. Cook and stir broth mixture until thickened and boiling, 5 to 7 minutes. Stir potato, carrot, and green onions into broth mixture; bring to a boil. Reduce heat and simmer until potatoes are mostly tender, 10 to 15 minutes.

  • Stir half-and-half and corn into broth mixture; cook and stir until chowder is heated through, about 5 more minutes.

Cook's Note:

If you like meat, 3/4 cup diced ham or chicken is quite good. That will make it 4 servings. I like to serve with green salad and crusty bread.

I followed this recipe though since I was using more vegetables (broccoli and red bell peppers that needed used) I increased the chicken broth (and used stock) and used an entire carton. I subbed white pepper for black. Upon tasting I found this to be a bit bland so I added a good handful of shredded cheddar; this hit the mark. As written "3" stars; with the addition of cheddar "4". THANKS for the recipe! Read More

I added a large stalk of celery chopped a large jalapeno chopped finely and a bay leaf. I would definitively make it again. We loved it! Read More

Excellent and was a perfect quantity for two. Also I used veggies broth instead of chicken to keep it vegetarian. Next time I will use shelled edamame instead of corn for a punch of protein. Read More
