Simply Irresistible Chicken Corn Chowder

Prepare to be amazed by the incredible flavors in our Chicken Corn Chowder. Creamy, yet not overly rich, this chowder boasts a remarkable flavor profile with a hint of smokiness. Our carefully selected ingredients, from the bacon and chicken to the veggies and spices, come together to create a satisfying and well-balanced soup.

To achieve this soup’s outrageous flavor, we start by building a roux with butter and bacon grease. Trust us when we say that the bacon makes all the difference! Just like our award-winning chili recipe and potato soup, the bacon adds an unrivaled depth of flavor.

What You Need

Our Chicken Corn Chowder recipe requires several ingredients, but a few are worth highlighting:

  • Smoked paprika: This spice adds a sweet and smoky flavor that complements creamy dishes perfectly.
  • Dry mustard: Ground, dried mustard seed delivers a distinct flavor that enhances the overall taste of the chowder.
  • Corn: Fresh summer corn is ideal, but frozen or canned corn will work too!
  • Jalapeño: Add a jalapeño for a mild heat and extra flavor. Adjust the spice level by adding or removing the seeds.
  • Potatoes: Gold potatoes are recommended for their texture and convenience. If you prefer russet, be sure to peel them before use.

How to Make Chicken Corn Chowder

Follow these simple steps to create a pot of delicious Chicken Corn Chowder:

  1. Cook the bacon until crispy, then set it aside.
  2. Sauté the vegetables in butter and the reserved bacon grease until softened.
  3. Stir in the garlic, then sprinkle flour over everything and stir until absorbed.
  4. Add the seasonings, then gradually pour in the chicken broth.
  5. Incorporate the remaining ingredients and simmer until the potatoes and chicken are cooked.
  6. Remove the chicken, shred it, and set it aside.
  7. Puree half of the soup for a thicker and creamier texture, then return the shredded chicken to the pot.
  8. Taste for seasonings, ladle into bowls, and top with crispy bacon or any other desired toppings.

Pro tip: Blending half the soup creates a velvety texture while maintaining delightful chunks of veggies and chicken. If you don’t have an immersion blender, you can use a regular blender or a potato masher to achieve the desired consistency.
