Chicken corn chowder. 

I used to make this allllll the time like, 6 years ago. Then I lost the recipe and no matter how hard I looked online I could not find the exact recipe and I didn’t want to settle. 

Well. I found it at my parents house last night. And just in time; I got my first Dutch oven. 


2 slices of bacon(I used 3 🙊)

1 onion, chopped

3 tablespoons of flour

1 pound of Yukon gold potatoes, peeled and chopped. 

4 cups of shredded cooked chicken(I bought a rotisserie chicken at the store and shredded the whole thing.)

3 cups of corn

1/4 to 1/2 cup of heavy shipping cream


1. In a large, heavy pot over medium-high heat, cook bacon until fat renders and meat starts to brown. Add onion, reduce heat to medium and cook until soft, about 3 minutes. Sprinkle with flour and cook, stirring until flour has cooked but hasn’t started to brown, about 3 minutes.

2. Add potatoes and broth. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat to keep mixture simmering and cook until potatoes are barely tender, about 5 minutes. Add chicken and corn and bring heat to a boil. Reduce heat to low and stir in cream to taste. Heat through, about 2 minutes. 

Here’s the end result. 

We usually add avocado slices and lime juice and it’s amazing.
