This is a really quick, easy dish. We usually just have this and some bread for dipping but you could make it a first course to a larger meal, too.
Melt butter in large pot.
Add chopped onion, celery, and bell pepper and saute until tender, about 5 minutes.
Add flour to vegetables and stir to coat. Cook for about one minute.
Add corn (including liquid), chicken broth, cream, and shredded chicken.
Reduce heat and simmer 20 minutes. Add salt and pepper to taste.
I prefer the chopped Maraschino Cherries when I make this.
Bring sugar milk and butter to boil over low heat.
Cook to medium Soft ball stage. Stir frequently. Remove from heat and add rest of ingredients. Stir until melted. Pour into butter 9x13 pan.
May substitute 6oz bitter chocolate for cherries and add vanilla. put chocolate in before cooking sugar milk and butter mixture.
