Chicken Corn Chowder

Clayton is a huge fan of corn anything, he would literally eat corn as a whole meal. Last fall, my Mom was here after we had Nora and we made this soup for when the rest of the family came to visit and Clayton has been asking for it ever since. This creamy soup is filled with veggies other than corn but the corn takes first rank with the chicken! Delicious for a cold, blistery day and quick and easy to make.
