Ok … I confess! I used a cheat starter for my soup tonight. I found a box of CORN CHOWDER in the pantry, which did not list garlic on the label. With the cheat as my inspiration, I chopped up a bit of onion and a YELLOW SQUASH.
Heated oil in the pan then sautéed the onion with a little bit of green chile. After a little bit of stirring I added the squash. Again with the stirring to coat with the oil and to begin to sweat the squash. Then added a little cumin and sage. To this I added the corn chowder and placed the lid on the pot. Checked once and stirred to ensure no stickage.
While that heated through, I chopped up some of the chicken pieces into a large bowl. Added the hot soup on top of the chicken. Garnished with fresh parsley. I’m going back for SECONDS.
