Chicken, Corn & Potato Chowder

Pin It Now!
A rich, creamy and delicious chicken corn chowder that will keep you warm on cold winter nights, It’s very easy to make and is surly my favourite comfort food and I love having it with a toasted slice of bread…

Chicken Chowder


4 Tbsp butter
1/4 cup all purpose flour
2 cups chicken stock
2 cups milk
1 small onion, minced
1&½ cup cooked chicken (cubed or shredded)
2 potatoes, diced into small cubes
2-3 cloves garlic, minced
1 can corn, drained or about 1&1/2 cup frozen fresh corn
Salt and pepper to taste
A few dashes of hot sauce (like Tabasco)


Melt butter over low heat in a pot. When melted, add flour to make a roux and whisk until it comes together in a little ball. Add a cup of chicken stock and whisk until completely combined and there are no lumps, now add the 2nd cup of chicken stock and milk and bring to a simmer. Add potatoes, onions, and garlic, and simmer (but don’t boil!) you can cover the pan/pot with a lid too, stirring frequently other wise it can stick to the bottom of the pan, for about 20 minutes or until potatoes are tender. Add cubed chicken pieces and corn and heat through. Add a few drops of hot sauce and then salt and black pepper powder to taste and some chopped fresh coriander or parsley. Ladle into bowls and sprinkle with some cheese if you want.
