1 tablespoon butter
2 cups chopped onion
2 tablespoons chopped seeded jalapeño pepper
2 teaspoons curry powder
5 cups fresh corn kernels (about 7 ears)
1/2 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 cup 2% reduced-fat milk
2 cups shredded cooked chicken breast (about 1 pound)
1/3 cup chopped fresh cilantro
1 1/2 teaspoons salt
1/2 teaspoon black pepper


Melt butter in a Dutch oven over medium heat. Add onion and jalapeño, and cook 10 minutes, stirring frequently. Add curry, and cook 30 seconds, stirring constantly. Add stock and corn, and bring to a boil, stirring occasionally. Reduce heat; simmer 15 minutes.

Lightly spoon flour into a dry measuring cup, and level with a knife. Place flour in a small bowl; gradually add milk, stirring with a whisk until well blended to form a slurry. Stir slurry into corn mixture, and bring to a boil. Cook for 3 minutes or until mixture thickens, stirring frequently. Stir in chicken, cilantro, salt, and black pepper.
