I had this Grilled Corn & Chicken Soup recipe saved on my computer for the longest time. I don't exactly recall where I found it but was a big hit with the family when I first made it. How can you go wrong with corn, chicken, cheese, and BACON?
While this soup recipe is not terribly difficult to make, just make sure you don't burn the corn. I got distracted once and burnt the corn. The soup did not taste good at all with burnt corn!
If you want to take the easy way out, you can use corn out of a can. Not quite the same as grilled corn but still a good soup.
🐓 How to Handle Raw Chicken
Leave the chicken in the fridge until ready to use.
Be careful of dripping juices. Clean up immediately.
Do not wash raw chicken (which prevents cross-contamination).
Wash all utensils and cutting boards (if applicable).
If marinating the chicken, make sure you toss the juices before you cook. Don't ever use the juice from the marinade.
Wash your hands after handling raw chicken.
🥓 How to Make Bacon
If you struggle to make bacon perfectly, I've put together a short tutorial on How to Make Perfect Bacon - 3 Ways. Check it out! My preferred method is baking it in the oven.
And don't throw away that bacon grease! Bacon is expensive and the grease is great for making Scrambled Eggs, Grilled Cheese, Popcorn and even hash browns. It can keep up to 3 months if properly stored in the refrigerator.
An alternative to using chicken broth is Better Than Bouillon. I often use it when I don't have broth on hand.
