I got the idea for this chowder after making Jamie Oliver’s Smoky Haddock Corn Chowder.

It’s very quick and easy to make and delicious eaten as a chunky soup of served with boiled rice or potatoes and maybe some garlic bread on the side – nice 🙂

Preparation time is around ten minutes and cooking time between 15 and 20 minutes.

Chicken and Vegetable Chowder

Here goes:

Chicken and Vegetable Chowder – Ingredients

  • Olive Oil for frying
  • 4 rashers bacon, finely chopped
  • small bunch spring onions, finely sliced
  • 2 or 3 carrots, chopped
  • 2 large potatoes, cut into small chunks
  • 1 chicken breast, chopped
  • 1 or 2 corn on the cob – kernels removed (or you can use frozen)
  • 3 sprigs of fresh thyme (or you can use dried)
  • 1 litre / 32 fl oz chicken stock
  • 125 ml / 4 fl oz milk (I use soy milk)
  • Ground black pepper and a good pinch of salt

Chicken and Vegetable Chowder – Method

  1. Add the olive oil to a saucepan and fry the bacon until golden
  2. Add the spring onions and stir
  3. Add the potatoes and carrots and stir again for a minute of two
  4. Add the chicken and corn kernels and stir again
  5. Add the thyme and chicken stock
  6. Bring to the boil and simmer for 12-15 minutes, stirring occasionally
  7. Add the milk and cook for a few minutes longer
  8. Before serving, use a potato masher to mash a small portion of the chowder (this will thicken it slightly) and season with black pepper and salt to taste

Handy Hints and Variations

  • Jamie’s smoky haddock version is obviously a great variation
  • You could try adding different vegetables, such as broccoli, peas, broad beans, etc.
  • It’s a good idea to have all your veggies chopped before you start cooking
  • If you don’t have chicken stock, use water and add a stock cube (stock cubes are salty, so you probably wont need to add more salt at the end)

Hope you enjoy this Chicken and Vegatable Chowder.

    Sounds so yummy! I have never thought to make a chowder before – nor have I eaten one! I have seen seafood chowder at a cafe in Bundaberg, and was not game enough to try it! Wished I had! Might have to see if we can make Chicken and Vegetable Chowder sometime this week 🙂

    I think chowder is traditionally made with fish, but if chicken works, why not 🙂
