Warm up with a bowl of chicken corn chowder!
The weather is already getting colder, we can see our breath in the air and that means it’s time for comfort food. Something to warm us up while it fills our bellies like this yummy chicken corn chowder!
A bowl of steaming hot chowder, especially when it’s this chicken corn chowder is perfect for warming us up on a cold day. I love this chicken corn chowder because not only is it delicious but you can make it a full meal. It has our favourite protein – chicken, that creamy base, add some potato, corn of course and if you’d like even a few other vegetables. Serve with a side of crusty bread and not only will you be warmed up from head to toe your tummy will be satisfied too!
If you don’t know it already I’ll share again just in case, we only buy and eat chicken raised by a Canadian chicken farmer that has the logo below on the packaging. If you’re wondering why, there’s oh so many reasons but I’ll share just a few of them with you.
- Canadian chicken is grain-fed, free of hormones and steroids.
- Chicken with that logo on it follows a strict nationally-set, mandatory food safety and animal care standards.
- We want to support Canadian small businesses and many Canadian chicken farms are family run and owned!
If your store doesn’t use the “Raised by a Canadian Farmer” brand, you can ask them to bring it in!
Now let’s get on to this delicious chicken corn chowder recipe shall we?

Keep cozy during the colder season with this delicious and filling chicken corn chowder - the ultimate comfort food.
