Scrumptious Chowder

The mister and I, we’ve been home-ing it a lot lately! The chill in the air, is reason enough for us to just call it quits on outdoor ventures of sorts! We have been shamelessly resigning to the comfort of the couch and serial binge watching has certainly been the theme all season long! 

One of our fine discovery this winter, has to be the ever so Scrumptious Chowder. We pimped it up with some ginger and added some paprika for extra heat. Read on for the supremely easy recipe, just the perfect hearty dish  for a chilly  night!

Scrumptious Chowder
Serves: 4


25gms Butter
1 Onion finely chopped
1 glove of garlic
Tiny Piece of Ginger chopped finely
2 sticks of celery
2 fresh corn on cob
30 gms potatoes
200 gms of chicken
20gms Bacon (optional)
1 Chicken Stock cube
1 1/2 tsp paprika
1tsp nutmeg
75 ml Fresh cream
Salt to taste
Freshly ground Pepper
Fresh parsley to serve
                                                ½ cup water


Add a knob of butter to a pan, tip in the bacon and once its browned, in goes the finely chopped onion and celery along with the garlic and ginger. Sauté it for a while and add the paprika and Nutmeg. 

Then in goes Chicken Stock, potatoes and Corn and once it comes to a boil add the chicken and some extra water, cover the pot with a lid and let it cook for a good 20-25 mins until the chicken is cooked. 

And the cream is added at the last, do remember to bring down the heat and gently warm the broth.And with some freshly ground pepper and salt –seasoning check- Ta-Da, your scrumptious chowder is ready!

Some parsley buttered toasted baguette goes gloriously well with the chowder and the add fresh parsley for a bit of garnish before you serve.
