This is comfort food at it's finest. I took an old recipe of my moms and tweaked it adding some modern twists. Taste great on a cold fall or winter day. I have also added sweet potato and squash to this recipe with great results.

How to Make My Bacon Corn Chowder

Step-by-Step

  1. Assemble all ingredients. Get two large dutch ovens.
  2. Place 1/2 stick butter in one dutch oven and saute onion, celery, carrots and garlic until browned. Add wine and deglaze scrapping up bits from bottom of pan. Add one cup of chicken and bring to a boil. Reduce to simmer and cook until veggies are soft and mushy.
  3. Meanwhile add the remaining 4 cups of chicken broth to the other dutch oven. Bring to a boil and add potatoes. Cook until potatoes are soft. Add corn. Simmer on low.
