Corn Chowder with Chicken and Bacon

This rich, chunky bowl of kid-friendly corn chowder has layers of flavour (hi, leeks!) and goes from kernel to table in half an hour.

Ingredients

  • 2 cups frozen corn kernel
  • 1 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 russet potato , peeled and grated
  • 1 389-mL can creamed corn
  • 1/4 dried thyme
  • 6 slices bacon , chopped
  • 1 skinless, boneless chicken breast , cut into 1/2-in. cubes
  • 1 leek , white part only, finely chopped

Directions

  • Combine corn with broth, milk, potato, creamed corn and thyme in a large pot and set over high. Boil, then reduce heat to medium. Simmer, stirring often, until potato is tender, about 10 min.
  • Heat a large non-stick frying pan over medium-high. Add bacon and cook until just starting to crisp, about 4 min. Add chicken and leek. Cook, stirring often, until chicken is cooked through, about 3 min.
  • Stir bacon mixture into soup. Season with fresh pepper. Ladle chowder into bowls.
