You’ll need some cooked chicken breast. You can use either a rotisserie chicken or check your grocery store for already cooked chicken that is packaged up. I get mine from Trader Joe’s and I just chop it into bite size pieces.

Add your chopped chicken and corn to the saucepan. I found this charred corn from Trader Joe’s. It’s awesome! Perfect for soups!

    Hoping to make this soup later in the week. What brand am I looking for with respect to the diced tomatoes with peppers? Rotel?

  2. Emily

    This recipe sounded so good and easy so I bought all the ingredients and as I am making it, I realize that the green sauce has wheat in it…BUMMER!! I have a gluten allergy. Anything to replace the green sauce? I am going to try a little.
