My favorite, go-to slow cooker recipe is our Slow Cooker Corn Chowder... it's flavorful, hearty, packed with vegetables and so easy to make! In fact, I usually have the ingredients for it on-hand. Today I picked up a rotisserie chicken at the grocery store, so I decided to try a version of the corn chowder using chicken instead of ham.
WOW!!!! I have to say, this Slow Cooker Chicken Corn Chowder is pretty amazing! The chowder is not too rich or buttery like many chowders can be. It's still creamy but not heavy. It's sweet but also savory. It has great texture from the chicken, corn and potatoes. Plus, I added enough black pepper to give it a little kick. And... the crispy, crumbled bacon on top takes this bowl of chowder to another level!!
Chicken Corn Chowder
based on a recipe from tasteofhome.com
- 2-1/2 cups fat-free milk
- 2 cans (14-3/4 ounces) cream-style corn
- 2 cans (10-3/4 ounces) condensed cream of chicken soup
- 3 cups frozen corn
- 2 medium potatoes, cubed
- 2 cups chicken, cooked and shredded (I use a rotisserie chicken)
- 3 stalks celery, chopped
- 3/4 cup baby carrots, sliced
- 2 teaspoons dried parsley flakes
- 1/4 teaspoon onion powder
- 1 tablespoon butter (or I Can't Believe It's Not Butter)
- Salt and pepper to taste
- 6 slices bacon, cooked and crumbled
Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
Basically, I love everything about this chowder. With that being said... I think I will go help myself to a second bowl. :)
Hope you enjoy this chowder as much as I did!! It would be a great addition to your Slow Cooker/Crock Pot rotation.
