      This tasted wonderful. I made a half batch of this for lunch with my husband and he said it was yummy too. I subsituted the canned creamed corn with defrosted frozen and slightly pureed corn, and used some crushed dried chili for the chili. I also used a little extra chicken and spring onions. Will be making this again - whenever we next have some leftover chicken around!
