Chicken Corn Chowder with Sweet Potatoes
Adapted from Mykitchencafe.com
Serves 6-8 adults

3 cups whole milk
1 cup yellow corn muffin mix
2 T. butter
1 onion, chopped fine
3 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 tsp. ground cumin
1/2 tsp. dried oregano
8 cups chicken broth
1 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes(I used shredded canned chicken)
2 sweet potatoes, peeled and cut into small cubes
1 cup shredded Monterey Jack Cheese
3 cups frozen corn (not thawed)
salt and pepper, to taste

Mix milk and muffin mix in bowl until well combined. Meanwhile, heat butter in large pot over medium heat until foaming. Add onion and cook until softened, about 8 minutes. Stir in garlic, cumin and oregano and cook until fragrant, about 30 seconds. Add broth, chicken and sweet potatoes. Bring to boil, reduce heat, and simmer until sweet potatoes are just tender, about 8 minutes. Stir in milk and muffin mixture and simmer until soup thickens, about 10 minutes. Add cheese and corn and cook until cheese begins to melt, about 2 minutes. Season with salt and pepper. Serve.
