Cheesy Ham and Corn Chowder

 15 oz chicken broth
 2 tbsp chicken bouillon
 ½ cup carrot, diced
 3 bay leaves
 1 tsp pepper
 1 tsp ground thyme
 1 tsp garlic powder
 2 medium potatoes, peeled, cubed
 ½ cup onion, diced
 ½ cup green onion, sliced
 4 tbsp butter
 4 tbsp flour
 1.50 cups milk
 15 oz can of corn
 8 oz Cheddar cheese, shredded
 1 cup cooked ham, diced

Stir chicken broth, carrots, chicken bouillon, bay leaves, salt, pepper, thyme, and garlic powder together in a pot; bring to a boil, reduce heat to medium, and cook for 10 minutes.


Add potatoes and onion; cook for 10 minutes more. Add green onion; cook until all vegetables are fork tender, about 10 minutes more.


In a saucepan, melt butter over low heat. Remove from heat and whisk flour into butter until smooth. Return saucepan to medium heat; gradually add milk to butter mixture, whisking constantly, and cook until mixture thickens, 6 to 7 minutes.


Stir milk mixture into vegetable mixture; add corn, Cheddar cheese, and ham, reduce heat to low, and simmer until ham is heated through and cheese melts, 10 to 15 minutes. Serve hot.
