    My recipe for corn chowder soup calls for 5 cups of chicken broth and I only have 4 cups. Could I use the broth from Campbells chicken noodle soup?

    Yeah ... milk is good. You could also throw in an extra can of creamed-corn.

    My recipe does call for a 1/2 cup of heavy cream. Should I instead add 1 cup of cream if I'm short on the chicken broth?

    Yes. It will be a much better chowder. You may need to adjust salt a bit too.

    Water is fine as well.
