How to Make One Pot Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder
*The full recipe is at the bottom of this post.
First, in a large non-stick stock pot on med/high heat, add butter, onion, carrots, bay leaf, minced garlic, pepper and garlic powder. Cook for about five minutes.
Next, stir in flour. It will look pasty which, is fine.
Then, start adding chicken stock a little at a time while constantly stirring. Finish adding the chicken stock.
Then, stir in potatoes and corn. Cook for about 15 min on med/high heat.
Next, stir in half and half and whole milk.
Last, add chopped chicken (or poached chicken see recipe below) and cook for 20 more minutes or until the potatoes are soft when pierced with a fork. Add salt to taste.
This soup is perfect to make with leftover chicken or store-bought rotisserie chicken. If you have leftover ham, make this yummy One Pot Ham, Potato and Corn Chowder.
- You may substitute heavy cream for both the half and half and milk. It will taste even better but, it will be loaded with extra fat and calories. I’ve found a mixture of half and half and milk does just fine. You decide.
- Use chopped turkey instead of chicken.
- If you don’t have carrots, omit them or add celery instead.
- Use vegetable, turkey or ham stock instead of chicken stock.
Easy Slow Cooker Instructions:
Add all ingredients (see recipe details at the bottom of this post) to a slow cooker and cook on low for 5 hours. Stir well.
How to Poach a Chicken Breast:
Add one large chicken breast to a small pot of water. Boil for 15 min or until no longer pink inside, remove fat if you so desire, cut up and add to recipe. EASY!
Cream-based soups are so comforting. One Pot Crab and Corn Chowder is just as tasty as this Chicken Corn Chowder and a great recipe for Lent. Homemade soups are worth the effort in my opinion. The taste is unparalleled.
A creamy, tasty One Pot Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder is perfect on cold winter days when you need something to warm you up! It’s so filling you won’t need an afternoon snack after lunch. This recipe is so easy to make, you’ll think twice about buying canned soup again.

Thank you so much Jess. That is really a compliment coming from a good blogger like you! I’m thrilled. Thanks so much for taking the time to tell me that.
