Ingredients for Green Chile Chicken and Corn Chowder on Cutting Board

Cooking Green Chile Chicken and Corn Chowder on the Stove 

Preparing Your Ingredients 

For your 2 cups of pre-shredded chicken it is easiest to get a pre-cooked rotisserie chicken and shred the meat off of it. Not only is the chicken pre-cooked for you but it also is tender when you add it to your chowder. Or find pre-shredded chicken at your grocery store's deli. I find it is easier when you are in a hurry to use pre-shredded rotisserie chicken. 

Dice up ½ a small onion. Usually, the small sweet onions add a nice flavor to this recipe. 

Next peel and dice 2 medium potatoes. This can be any potato variation however if they are a harder potato it might take longer for them to tenderize when cooking the chowder. 

Now that you have prepped these ingredients it is time to throw together the chowder. 

Sautéing the Onion 

In a medium pot sauté the onion until it becomes translucent.
