This is a big beautiful bowl of yumminess that just warms you from the inside out.  You can use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken in this recipe or just fry up a couple of chicken breasts.

I like to choose tomatoes that are just barely ripe.  I find the tart flavor adds a nice balance to the sweet corn!

  1. Dice tomatoes and place in a strainer to drain while preparing the rest of the recipe.
  2. Fry bacon until crisp and crumble. Set aside half for garnish. Remove all but 1 tablespoon of bacon fat. Add onions, celery, garlic and carrots. Cook until onions are slightly softened but not browned. Add flour & thyme and cook an additional 2 minutes.
  3. Add broth and milk all at once. Whisk over medium heat until it thickens and becomes bubbly. Add all remaining ingredients including 1/2 of the bacon. Let simmer 10 minutes.
  4. Garnish with remaining bacon.
