How To Make momma's chicken and corn chowder

  • 1
    Cut and boil chicken breast until cooked through, about 20 minutes.
  • 2
    Fry bacon in large skillet, until crisp, crumble and place on paper towel to cool. Save the bacon grease. (I cut my bacon before frying to finish faster)
  • 3
    To the bacon grease add, butter. After butter is melted saute onions, carrots, and celery, until veggies are tender.
  • 4
    Add flour small amounts at a time, stir and cook about 5 minutes. (This will bubble up and cook the taste of flour out)
  • 5
    Transfer to a soup pot, add chicken, chicken broth, chicken base, and pepper, simmer for 20 minutes. Stir often, this will be thick.
  • 6
    Add corn, potatoes, bacon, and heavy cream. Simmer until warm, stir often.
