Chicken Bacon Corn Chowder Recipe

My husband is a general fan of my cooking, or so I think.  Maybe it is the chilly Seattle weather, but I have been making soups like it is going out of style.  One recipe that I made, makes my husband’s top 10 list.  It is the Chicken Bacon Corn Chowder.  I just laugh because we make this at least once every other week, it is that delicious!  I am not just tooting my own horn, see for yourself.  This recipe was adapted from Food Network’s Chicken and Corn Chowder.


  • In a stock pot, combine onions, frozen corn, bacon and chicken.  Cook until the onions are translucent in color.
  • Add 4 chicken bullion cubes to the pot and 32 oz of water or 32 oz of chicken broth.
  • Add diced potatoes.
  • Boil for about 20 minutes, making sure the potatoes are super soft and falling apart.
  • Once the potatoes are ready to go, turn the heat on simmer and pour in 8 oz of heavy cream.
  • Season with salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve with some green onions, jalepeno or cheese to add as a topping.

Shopping List:

  • 2 lbs chicken
  • 1/2 pound thick bacon, diced
  • 2 medium russet potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 – 8oz bag of frozen corn
  • 8oz of heavy cream
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 cloves of minced garlic
  • Kosher salt
  • Ground black pepper

Happy New Years!  Be well and take good care mamas!

    My husband’s words for most soup: “This would be pretty good if it had meat in it.” When I mentioned this chowder, he said: “Yes please.” Thanks! 🙂
