Vegetable Chicken Chowder

Vegetable chicken chowder recipe marissabaker.wordpress.comThe first time I made this soup, my family was praising the smell even before they got a taste of it. The basic recipe comes from an old cookbook my grandmother gave my mother called Country Classic Pioneer Cookbook. I’ve changed it a little, streamlining the recipe instructions and adding meat. This version calls for chicken, but you could easily make it with beef (which is what I did the first time I tried it). It goes well with bread, such as these Easy Bread Sticks.
