Chicken and Corn Chowder ~ Saturday Blog Showcase

It's my pick for Saturday Blog Showcase ~ this week hosted by
All That Splatters.
(Click logo below to learn more about it and find links for this weeks' participants.)

When TWO of my favored cooks featured this recipe and recommended it I knew it was a must try!

Lori on her blog
All That Splatters posted about the recipe she found on sweet Geri's blog Heart N Soul Cooking, and I completely agree this is a fabulous recipe.

It's with great thanks to Geri and Lori for introducing me to this recipe ~
It's a keeper, and the garnishes put it over the top with flavor.

You can find Geri's recipe on her blog (use the link listed above) or on my recipe blog
The only changes I made were ~I substituted Russet potatoes because I didn't have Yukon Golds on hand (but don't overcook them, they will fall apart) I used frozen white kernel corn, and I poached boneless chicken breast and cubed it instead of using shredded.

If it sounds good to you, I hope you'll try this one ~ I'm quite sure you'll love it as much as we did.

Thank you for stopping by to visit today.

    Monique, I'm so glad you found the cutlery (I wish I had known you wanted it.) I love the looks of it, but admit it is a little awkward... (not quite so comfortable to use.)

    Have a lovely weekend everyone.

  14. This looks beautiful. Amazing photos!

  15. WOW! These are absolutely beautiful! Gorgeous photos. Lovely presentation!
    Love the cutlery also.

  18. It is wonderful seeing everyone's rendition of a recipe. With single digit temps here in Massachusetts, I'll be making this tempting soup. I loved it on Lori's blog and now yours. Yes, the toppings do put it over the top! And the photos.....

    Thanks, Mary.
