Curried Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe

This recipe is close to one my mom used to make for us kids when the weather turned cold. Hers called for heavy cream, but I came up with a slimmer version that I think is pretty true to the original! —Kendra Doss, Colorado Springs, Colorado
TOTAL TIME: Prep: 15 min. Cook: 30 min. YIELD:8 servings


  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 medium onions, chopped
  • 2 celery ribs, chopped
  • 2 teaspoons curry powder
  • 1/4 teaspoon salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon pepper
  • Dash cayenne pepper
  • 5 cups frozen corn (about 25 ounces)
  • 3 cans (14-1/2 ounces each) reduced-sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup 2% milk
  • 3 cups cubed cooked chicken breast
  • 1/3 cup minced fresh cilantro


  • 1. In a Dutch oven, heat butter over medium heat. Add onions and celery; cook and stir until tender. Stir in seasonings; cook 30 seconds longer.
  • 2. Stir in corn and broth; bring to a boil. Reduce heat; simmer, covered, 15 minutes.
  • 3. In a small bowl, whisk flour and milk until smooth; stir into soup. Bring to a boil; cook and stir 2 minutes or until thickened. Stir in chicken and cilantro; heat through. Yield: 8 servings (2 quarts).

Recipe Note

Health Tip: Instead of using heavy whipping cream, this homey soup creates a thick and creamy texture with 2% milk and flour (a trade secret for lighter soups).

"This was so good!!!! I will definitely be adding this to my regular rotation. The only changes I made were using thighs instead of breasts and I left out the cilantro."

"Really tasty--good ol' chowder comfort with just a pinch of distinctiveness with the curry flavor. It also tastes great vegetarian, by simply omitting the chicken."

"I just had a bowl for dinner and was thinking the next time I have a bowl I'll break out the buttermilk biscuits. I also think I could add potato. This is yet another keeper from Taste of Home."

"Made this last night and it was fabulous!! I put in more than a dash of cayenne and it was quite spicy, but we like spicy food. I think the cilantro is a key ingredient, although my husband doesn't care for it so he put grated cheddar on his. Will definitely make this over and over again!!"
