Am I getting a head of myself here, sharing recipes for leftover turkey when we haven’t actually even made and eaten that pre-leftover Thanksgiving turkey? Mayyyyyyybe…. but I’ve been tasting and testing out turkey recipes and this one can’t wait. On the off-chance you do have some leftover turkey lying around, you need this now and if not, you can bookmark this one for later.

Plus I’ll let you in on a secret (okay not that secret but still.) you can make this soup anytime using leftover shredded chicken – woot woot!! Not just for the week after Thanksgiving.

This creamy leftover turkey corn chowder comes together in about 30 minutes and tastes so good you’ll be glad you have leftover turkey from your TG day festivities. My favorite thing about this chowder is using both cream style corn and whole kernel sweet corn. That combination gives this soup it’s perfect texture.

What people are saying about this Leftover Turkey Corn Chowder

“OMG!
This soup is delicious! Just made it and tastes like heaven!” – Dalyla

“Took closer to an hour with all the chopping and shredding, but this chowder was a DELICIOUS way to use up some of our leftover Thanksgiving turkey, Yukon gold potatoes and celery! I ran to the store for the cream corn and red bell pepper but had everything else on hand and truly enjoyed this yummy chowder! No changes necessary!!” 

“Super easy and DELISH! I omitted one of the cans of cream corn to lower the sugar factor, and added extra chicken broth instead. Will definitely make this again!” – Max

“This was wonderful. I even added the leftover gravy. I made it last night…eating it again tonight. Congrats on a wonderful Recipe!!!!” – Kendra

My husband and I made this together with leftover turkey from Thanksgiving! We absolutely loved it! Delicious! And such an easy soup to make. Thank you for posting your recipe… We will definitely make it again and again! 😊

    So happy to hear that!!

Delicious and so easy! I had a chipotle Chile in Adobe in the fridge and minced that up and threw it in–great addition for a little smoky flavor and heat! Great way to use up leftover turkey or chicken!

    sounds delish!
