• 15g butter
  • 1 small onion, chopped
  • 250g skinless chicken breast fillets, cut into 1 cm pieces
  • 3 rashers middle bacon, chopped
  • 2 x 410g cans Wattie's Cream Style Corn
  • 2 cups salt-reduced chicken stock
  • 300g peeled and cut into 1 cm cubes
  • Sprig of fresh thyme or 1 tsp dried
  • ¼ cup cream or milk (optional)
  • Handful of fresh parsley leaves, chopped
  1. Melt butter in a large saucepan. Add the onion and sauté over medium heat until softened. Add the chicken and bacon and continue cooking until the meats colour.
  2. Add the Wattie’s Cream Style Corn, chicken stock, potatoes and thyme. Stir while bringing to the boil. Reduce the heat to low, cover and simmer for 25 minutes or until the chicken is cooked and potatoes are tender. Stir in the cream or milk if using and add the chopped parsley before serving with crusty bread.

Top Tips

I made this yesterday and put it in the slow cooker. I didn't bother with step one, just went straight to step two. It was really delicious and very filling.

Excellent ingredient proportions. Made it twice as per instructions. Third time omitted the chicken altogether, used home made stock and a half a bacon hock instead of rashers. No milk nor cream needed. Topped with sour cream & chopped parsley.

Yum! Downloaded the app this morning, we had a cooked chicken for lunch so instead of breast I used the rest of that and added at the end instead of the beginning as it was already cooked. I like my chowder thick so added a little cornflour to thicken it and it is fab! Will definitely be making this again, thank you for the recipe.
