2 tablespoons butter
1 onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
2 carrots, diced
2 celery stalks, diced
2 medium potatoes, peeled and diced
4 cups chicken broth
2 cups cooked chicken, shredded or diced
2 cups corn kernels (fresh or frozen)
1 cup heavy cream
1 teaspoon dried thyme
Salt and pepper, to taste
Fresh parsley, chopped (for garnish)
In a large pot or Dutch oven, melt the butter over medium heat.
Add the diced onion and minced garlic to the pot and sauté until the onion becomes translucent.
Stir in the diced carrots, celery, and potatoes. Cook for about 5 minutes, allowing the vegetables to soften slightly.
Pour in the chicken broth and bring the mixture to a boil. Reduce the heat to low and let it simmer for 15-20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
Add the cooked chicken and corn kernels to the pot. Stir well to combine.
Pour in the heavy cream and sprinkle in the dried thyme. Stir again to incorporate all the ingredients.
Season the chowder with salt and pepper to taste. Adjust the seasoning as desired.
Simmer the chowder for another 10 minutes, allowing the flavors to meld together.
Remove the pot from the heat and let it cool slightly.
Ladle the Chicken Corn Chowder into serving bowls and garnish with freshly chopped parsley.
Serve hot and enjoy the delightful flavors of this comforting chowder.
You can add other vegetables such as peas, bell peppers, or green beans to the chowder for added texture and flavor.
If you prefer a thicker chowder, you can make a roux by melting butter in a separate saucepan, adding flour to make a paste, and whisking in a small amount of the hot broth before adding it back to the chowder.
Leftover chowder can be stored in the refrigerator for up to 3 days. Reheat gently on the stovetop, adding a splash of broth or cream if needed to adjust the consistency.
