Chicken, Corn and Bacon Chowder

This homemade chowder is packed with amazing flavours you will go back for seconds or thirds. Chicken, Corn and Bacon Chowder is a type of chowder loaded with fresh corn, chicken, bacon and potatoes; it is the perfect hearty soup to pair with crusty bread.

One of my favourite soup types is the chowder specially the creamy ones, they are such a comfort meal to me, very warming, thick and can never go wrong with it. Regardless of whether its seafood or not, the melt in your mouth potato with the savouriness and creaminess of it makes it a nice dish to have during winter. We had made several chowders before mostly seafood based and rarely chicken based, that will change today because we are making Chicken, Corn and Bacon Chowder, the best of both worlds, the comfort of chicken soup and the heartiness of the chowder, to top it all off we added some bacon to give it an extra flavour and texture. A simple recipe that’s made all in one pot.
