1 medium onion, chopped
3 celery ribs, chopped
2 to 3 Tbsp. chopped garlic snapes (optional)
2½ tsp. curry powder

½ cup milk
½ cup flour
2 to 3 cups cooked, diced chicken breast (or 2 cans of chicken in water, drained)
  • In a Dutch oven, heat the butter over medium heat; add onions and celery (and garlic snapes, if using them); cook and stir until veggies are tender.
  • Stir in seasonings; cook 30 more seconds.
  • Add in broth, corn, and potatoes and bring to a boil; reduce heat and simmer, covered, for 15 to 20 minutes (until potatoes are done).
  • In a small bowl, whisk milk and flour together until smooth; stir into soup, bring soup back to a boil; cook for 2 minutes or until thickened.
  • Stir in chicken; heat through.
Serve in bread bowls, or over rice, or with sliced artisan bread (which you can use as an eating utensil).
