  • Season with salt and pepper.
  • Add in remaining butter and let it melt for about 30 seconds.
  • Whisk in flour until well incorporated and cook for 1 minute.  
  • Slowly stir in chicken stock and whisk to combine to prevent lumps from forming.

  • Add in potatoes and corn and cook for 12-15 minutes or until potatoes are tender.
