Creamy Chicken Vegetable Chowder

t d


I made this recipe from many different chowder recipes to make it my own, with my families' likes and dislikes considered. This soup is definitely a winter recipe,(or at least I think it is). I love it on a cold, rainy, sleeting, day. It just makes you feel warm and cozy! I find myself cooking more in the fall and winter than any other time of the year. Maybe because we need the extra love? ;-) It's a comfort food to say the least! It takes a good bit of prep dicing all the veggies but once that's done it's a snap and so worth the time involved! You'll love this I'm sure! Enjoy!

35 Min


1 Hr


Stove Top


1-2 lb
boneless chicken breast, roasted and shredded
2 Tbsp
olive oil
1 large
onion, diced
2 clove
garlic, minced
3 large
baking potatoes, diced
carrots diced
red bell pepper, diced
2 qt
chicken broth
1/2 pkg
ranch dressing mix
1/4 tsp
thyme, dried
bay leaf
1 c
heavy cream
1/2 stick
1/2 c
all purpose flour
1/2 pkg
american cheese slices
2 tsp
2 tsp
black pepper
1 tsp
red pepper flakes

Directions Step-By-Step

Coat chicken breast in olive oil, salt, and pepper; roast in the oven until browned. OR this can be done in the pot on the stove that you will be cooking the chowder in. This is the best way because all the drippings can be scraped from the bottom and adds flavor. Oven is easier, but stove top is tastier. IMHO
Remove chicken and let rest on a chopping board.
Add butter and flour to pot drippings and make a roux. Stir until lightly browned and flour is cooked.
Pour in chicken broth; shred chicken and add back to the pot.
Add all diced vegetables. (corn is optional also)
Add thyme, bay leaf, ranch dressing mix, salt, pepper and red pepper flakes.
More chicken broth (or water) may be added if needed.
Add cheese slices, stir until melted and blended, then add heavy cream.
Cook on low heat for 1 hour, stirring occasionally from bottom of pot.
Remove bay leaves before serving.
