Cook 6 to 7 minutes or until tender. Stir halfway through cooking.
Add chicken. Cook covered 3 to 4 minutes until chicken is pink.
Stir once during cooking. Sprinkle flour over chicken. Stir to blend.
Add bullion, milk and corn. Cook covered on high 8 to 10 minutes or until boiling. Mixture will thicken slightly. Stir occasionally. Season to taste.

Helpful Hints:

In step where corn and milk is added, add 2 tablespoons chili powder and 1
can green chilies chopped and drained. Sprinkle with cheddar cheese before serving. Frozen stew vegetables may be used if desired. Just cut out the step where raw vegetables are cooked.

Additionally, the recipe can be converted to crockpot in this manner.
Follow microwave instructions until the soup and milk are added. Pour all
ingredients in crockpot and simmer on low for about four hours or until
vegetables are done to the desired degree of tenderness.
