How to Make Hearty Chicken Corn Chowder


  1. Puree 2 cups of frozen corn; set aside.
  2. In a large soup pot, cook bacon until crisp.
  3. Drain fat, leaving 2 tablespoons in the pan. Add chicken and cook over medium heat until no longer pink, about 6 minutes. (If using rotisserie chicken, skip this part.)

    Add onion, celery and peppers and saute for 2 minutes or until tender.
  4. Stir in flour. Cook for 1 - 2 minutes. Stir in half and half and heavy cream. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly.
  5. Add pureed corn to the pot. Heat to boiling, stirring constantly for 1 minute.

    Stir in pepper, bouillon paste, potatoes and remaining corn.
  6. Heat through. Stir in bacon. (I leave the bacon to use as a garnish, so it stays crisp - you can add it to the pot if you prefer. )

    Serve immediately.
