Easy Tilapia Corn Chowder

This is comfort food for me.  Hubby called it gourmet food.  He said this should be on every restaurant's menu.  It is so good!  Enjoy!
Ingredients:
-2 slices bacon, cut into chunks
-1 leek, halved lengthwise, rinsed and thinly sliced
-1/2 tsp salt
-1/2 tsp pepper
-4 cups chicken broth
-2 small potatoes, peeled and diced
-1 (15.5 oz) can corn, drained
-1 1/2 lbs tilapia fillets, cut into bite size chunks
-1 cup heavy cream or half-and-half
-2 tsp lemon juice
-chopped chives to garnish
Directions:
Cook bacon in large soup pot until crispy.  Remove onto plate with a slotted spoon.  Leave the bacon grease in the pot and add the leak, salt and pepper.  Cook, stirring often for about 2 minutes.  Add the broth and potatoes.  Bring to a boil and let it simmer for about 8 minutes. Stir in tilapia and corn and cook for 4 more minutes.
Remove pot from the heat.  Stir in cream, lemon juice and reserved bacon.
Ladle into bowls, garnish with chives and enjoy!
