Sorry there’s only going to be one picture for this Chicken Corn Chowder. I was having pregnancy brain and forgot to take pictures for this one (or maybe I was just trying to hurry and finish so I could eat it because it smelled and tasted soooo good!!)
I love soup. And I love the Pioneer Woman on Food Network so when I saw this recipe for corn chowder on Pinterest, I knew it would be great. The first time I made it, I pretty much followed the recipe to a tee taking out a few things like bacon and green onions because I didn’t have them on hand.
Recently, I recently made a whole chicken in the slow cooker and had a bunch of extra chicken left over so I decided that instead of just corn chowder, I would adjust the recipe and make chicken corn chowder. It was so amazing. I was actually happy that Andrew doesn’t like soup and I got to enjoy that entire pot to myself over the week.
Chicken Corn Chowder
- 2 cups low sodium chicken broth
- 1 cup water
- 1 tablespoon low fat butter
- 1 small onion finely chopped
- 1 cup chopped yellow and red peppers
- 2 cups chopped cooked chicken
- 1 can creamed corn
- 1 can corn drained, rinsed
- 1/2 cup buttermilk
- 2 tablespoons flour
- 2 cups shredded cheddar or colby jack cheese
- Salt and Pepper to taste
In a large pot, add chicken broth, water, butter, onions, and peppers over medium high heat for 5 minutes.
Add both cans of corn and chicken, stir together, and cook for another 5 minutes.
Add buttermilk and flour and combine well (I used a whisk to make sure flour wasn't clumpy).
Allow to thicken slightly (3 to 4 more minutes) and then reduce heat to low.
Add salt and pepper to taste (I add 1/2 teaspoon each).
Let cook on low for another 15 minutes.
Stir in cheese and allow to melt entirely.
Remove from heat. Serve in regular or bread bowl.
Add bacon, use orange peppers as well, substitute buttermilk for half-and-half, substitute cheddar/colby jack cheese with Monterey Jack or Pepper Jack, add green onions.
You literally can add or subtract so many options. It’s amazing and I really hope you enjoy. As I write this at almost midnight, I really want to go make some! I can’t wait to have it again!! 🙂
