I brought this recipe home with me a couple of years ago after spending several days in a beautiful Amish community. The recipe is designed to feed a lot of people with everyday, farm fresh ingredients. Simple, basic, good, honest food. That's what it's all about.

How to Make Amish Chicken Bacon Corn Chowder

Step-by-Step

  1. Fry 4 slices of bacon. When done, drain on paper towels and set aside. Crumble when cool.
  2. Fry chopped onion in bacon drippings. When golden, add flour and stir for one more minute.
  3. Add everything else except for bacon and parsley flakes. Simmer on low, stirring occasionally, for 30 minutes until thickened and potatoes are tender. Do not boil or milk can separate.
  4. After 30 minutes, you can take a potato masher and break up a few of the potatoes, if desired or leave them chunky. It's up to you. Add parsley flakes to pot.
  5. Add soup to bowls and garnish with croutons and crumbled bacon. Shredded cheddar and/or green onion tops would be great, too.
