Step 1

In a sauce pan over medium heat, saute onion & garlic in butter until tender. Add flour, salt & pepper. Stir to form roux (paste). Gradually, add chicken broth, bring to slow boil and cook for 3 minutes stirring constantly so as to not stick.

Add potatoes, carrots, bay leaf, thyme & nutmeg. Cover and simmer for 20 minutes. Add rice, spice packet, ham, cream or milk, and corn. Heat through but do not boil. Remove bay leaf. Serve and sprinkle with parsley if desired.
