Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder

Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder

Do you want to hear something weird about me?  All of my very favorite recipes (Sweet Corn Topped Burgers, Pasta with Bacon & Corn, Sausage & Corn ChowderSweet Corn Chili) have corn as the star ingredient but I do not think of myself as a corn person.  I know, weird!  I am not the person who will typically grab corn on the cob for dinner, but if corn is in the recipe…I will automatically love it.  And corn in my chowder?  That is for sure a winning recipe in my book.  On this particular night, I made a Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder in the slow cooker for supper.  This means, I did a little bit of work first thing in the morning and then later that night, bam…dinner was done.  Corn plus my slow cooker equals the best kind of supper of all!

This recipe serves four to six.

Shopping List
1 pound of chicken breasts
2 (14 oz) cans of cream style corn
1 (10 oz) can of cream of chicken soup
1 (4 oz) can of chopped green chiles
1 cup of chicken stock
1 teaspoon garlic powder
a pinch of both salt and pepper
1 (8 oz) package of cream cheese, softened just a bit
2 tablespoons corn starch
2 tablespoons water
2 cups of fresh or frozen corn kernels
crispy bacon pieces to garnish
chopped green onions to garnish
shredded cheddar cheese to garnish

In your slow cooker, place your chicken, cream corn, cream of chicken soup, green chiles, stock, garlic powder, salt, pepper and cream cheese.  Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours or on high 3 to 4 hours.  About 20 minutes before you’re ready to eat, whisk together the corn starch and water in a small bowl. Remove the lid and shred your chicken up right inside the slow cooker using two forks then stir in your corn starch mix along with the fresh or frozen corn kernels.  Place the lid back on the slow cooker and continue cooking another 15 to 20 minutes.  After that, ladle the soup into bowls and garnish with crispy bacon, green onions and cheddar cheese.

Me oh my oh!  This recipe is sure to warm you up on a cold night!

    It looks delicious! I’ll find a way to work around the recipe without a slow cooker, haha.

    This looks so good! For the chicken breasts, do you shred them at some point, chop them up before they go in, or something else?

    Did you dice up the chicken breasts first? I assume it was raw chicken that you started with. Sounds yummy! Thanks.

    It’s snowy and cold where I live and this is tomorrow night’s dinner. Also, we were without power for two days. I had some ground hamburger cooked up so I made your beer cheese chili in a cast iron pan on my wood stove, it was delicious and reheated perfectly on the stove, too.

    I just love creamy, cozy, comforting soups like this for wintertime! Unfortunately in Alabama today it’s over seventy degrees…but when it inevitably cools back down next week I’m going to squeeze this into my rotation 🙂

    Shay do you ever use a pressure cooker? Would love to know timing to convert this to My instant pot pressure cooker.

    I made this for dinner tonight and it was absolutely delicious!!! Perfect for a cold, rainy night dinner. This was my first of your recipes to try, but I will definitely be trying more! Thanks for sharing! 🙂

    I cooked this up yesterday and I had an issue getting the cream cheese to breakup and blend into the soup, also might is much thicker than yours looks in the photos. Any advice to get it right next time? I really love the taste

      Let that cream cheese soften up a bit more next time!
