Throw together is quick Chicken and Corn Soup using leftover chicken for a simple, yet hearty weeknight supper.
My hubby and kids are HUGE soup fans. Soup’s just okay for me, but I try my best to please everyone during the week and a good soup will make them all happy. So, I’m always trying to make a new soup for supper and I always love a meal that is easily made from pantry staples. It makes it easy to keep everything on hand for a quick supper on busy nights.
I, sometimes, serve this soup with these super yummy Cheddar Muffins that I shared with y’all recently. Everyone agreed that they went together really well together.
But we had a little mishap in the kitchen. I was letting Gavin (my 2yo) help me with supper and he decided that it would be funny to slide the lid of my favorite soup pot off the counter and onto the flour. Of course it shattered into a bazillion pieces. I’m so bummed….I loved my Emile Henry Flame Top Stew Pot.…probably more than I should have. I’ve had it for many years, so it was well seasoned and made the best soup. I told John he better figure out how to get me a replacement lid for Christmas. I’ll keep my fingers crossed….
