  • 1 pound boneless chicken breat (or roast a chicken, use all meat)
  • 1 pound sweet potato peeled and diced
  • 2 1/2 cups frozen sweet corn
  • 1 tsp garlic powder

  • 1 tsp smoked paprika
  • 1/2 tsp dried cilantro

  • Stove Top: 
    1. For the best chicken in the world, roast it for 3 hours in a La Chomba pot in the oven at 350 degrees.  Then shred the chicken off to use in the chowder.  Save the carcass to make chicken stock.
    2. Put all ingredients but the heavy cream into a large pot at medium high heat.  When the sweet potato is cooked through, add the heavy cream and let it warm through, about 10 minutes.
    3. Serve!

    4. Add heavy cream and cook another 15 minutes until warmed through.
