Chicken Chowder from Leftovers

I'm home with a cold and craving hot soup.  Soup is so soothing when you're sick.

In the fridge I found some leftover grilled chicken, mashed potatoes, corn, and peas.  After dicing the chicken, I put in all in a pot with chicken broth and brought it to a boil.

That's it - Chicken Chowder!  I love leftovers.

The soup was delicious.  All that lovely steam to soothe clogged sinuses and hot liquid going down my sore throat is just what I needed to feel a bit better.

Update:  Alison at Under the Big Oak Tree made this soup (with the addition of cheese - yum!) and posted ingredient amounts here.
What have you cooked up lately?

  1. Although, I have my menu planned for the week, I think I'm going to make your chowder! I have some cooked chicken, homemade broth, and mashed potatoes in the fridge! Thanks for the inspiration!

  2. I ended up making something very similar to this last night (blog post to go live at midnight) after being inspired by your recipe! I had leftover mashed potatoes that needed to be used and I didn't have the time for my normal mashed potato soup, so finding your post yesterday was perfect timing!

    I also shared a link to your post on my facebook page!

  3. Thank you! I appreciate you sharing the link. I like your blog and am adding you to my reading list.

  4. What a delicious way to use up leftovers! Fast, frugal and comforting - you can't get better than that :) Thank you for sharing your recipe with The Hearth and Soul hop.
