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!chicken corn chowder

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!chicken corn chowder

  1. This Chicken Corn Chowder recipe looks awesome! Can't wait to try it. I think maybe corn chowder is a regional dish.

  2. I have purchased all of the ingredients to make this recipe and I am going to fix it for my family tomorrow. I think this is a meal that will appeal to both the adults and the kiddos.

  3. Winter seems to be storming back in from time to time here in Tennessee -- we're beyond ready for warmer temps. This would be great for the colder days we have left to get through!

  4. I've had a lot of Corn Chowders (I'm from Snow country) but never any with Jalapenos & red pepper flakes. I love spicy food too, this is a must try....

  5. I am a big "soupie" but I have never had corn chowder! I live in Florida (originally from Toronto). Maybe it is a regional thing? This looks so incredible. I love that there is chicken, bacon and jalapenos in it. This is my type of soup. I will need to try this! 🙂

  6. This looks so yummy! I love corn chowder! I would love to try this recipe without the chicken and bacon to see how it tastes. It would be a great meal for a chilly winter day!

  7. We are having a chicken and noodle soup tonight-- but this chowders sounds better , more rib sticking on a cold night... thanks!

  8. I have only made corn chowder 1 time before and it was so good! My husband still talks about it. Was such a pain to make because it took so long.

  9. This is the time of year that I really appreciate these tasty warm soup recipes. This one looks like it would be really delicious and just the right amount of spice.

  10. I just had breakfast and this bowl of chowder made me so hungry! This sounds so easy and simple to make I think I need to go to store and pick up a few things. Of course I will cut the recipe in half since it is just me. But I will also freeze part of it for those days that I really want something to warm me up.

  11. I love corn chowder, especially the corn. I always put more than the recipe calls for. It's getting cold here in NY. This is the perfect dish on a cold evening.

  12. With the colder months, I'm all about soups. This is one soup I have not yet tried to make, but my gram made it when i was growing up and i loved it. Thanks for sharing, I will be trying this!
