Easy Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe

Easy Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe

I play around with ingredients in my pantry instead of running to the store when I don’t know what’s for dinner. Here's a happy experiment. Cut some fat by leaving out the bacon. It's still tasty. —Barbara Banski, Fenton, Michigan
TOTAL TIME: Prep/Total Time: 30 min. YIELD:4 servings


  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 small onion, finely chopped
  • 1 celery rib, finely chopped
  • 1 small sweet red pepper, finely chopped

  • 1-1/2 cups chopped cooked chicken
  • 1 can (12 ounces) reduced-fat evaporated milk
  • 1 teaspoon chicken bouillon granules
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

"loved this! Made as it, except I had about 1/2 a cup of leftover fried potatoes from breakfast, so I tossed those in those as well. Will make this again!"

"Good, easy, solid recipe. Whole family loved it. I left out the celery/peppers b/c we aren't fans and I put it in the crock pot on low. Loved how quick it was to put together."

"Good flavor with room for improvement; I added 2 tsp of "Better Than Boullion" and that gave it a little more hearty flavor, (and without the MSG!). Also works with deli rotisserie chicken - easy and quick but doesn't taste "quickly thrown together" Easy on the budget - a winner all around!"

"Review by volunteer field editor: Being in the mood for soup and also needing to clean my fridge, where I already had some cooked chicken, this seemed the perfect recipe for a rainy day. I did not have evaporated milk so I used half n half, nor did I add the bacon, but it was still a marvelous chowder. This will go into my book as a winner."
