Zippy Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe

  • 2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
  • 4 tablespoons butter or margarine, divided
  • 1 large sweet red pepper, chopped
  • 2 medium leeks, chopped
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1 tablespoon paprika
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 2 medium potatoes, cubed
  • 4 cups frozen corn
  • 1 tablespoon Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 teaspoon salt
  • 1/2 teaspoon hot pepper sauce
  • 1 cup half-and-half cream
  1. In a soup kettle or Dutch oven, saute chicken in 2 tablespoons butter until lightly browned; set aside and keep warm. In the same pan, saute the red pepper in remaining butter until tender. Add the leeks; cook for 1 minute. Stir in the flour and paprika until blended. Gradually stir in the broth. Add the potatoes; bring to a boil.
  2. Reduce heat; cover and simmer for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender.
