It’s been cooling off ever so slightly lately and that little change in temperature, along with a few teeny tiny red leaves on the bushes lining our driveway, is getting me in the Fall mood very quickly. I’ve made two soups in the last four days and I’m not ashamed to say I have another one on the way. I just can’t help myself. When I get in the mood for soup, things get a little out of hand. Looks like this year we’re starting a little early, but I promise I won’t bombard with you soup though, we’ll ease into it. One now, another…. tomorrow. Ha! I’m joshing. I’ll give it a week or so.

This is the Fall dinner of my dreams. Honestly it just doesn’t get much easier than this. Maybe ever. Step one, dump everything into your slow cooker. Step two, shred chicken with two forks. Step three, stir in a few more ingredients. DONE. Dinner is served.

I’m not saying you absolutely have to but I highly recommend serving this soup with a load of French bread on the side. I’d eat a loaf of French bread by itself but have you ever dipped a few morsels into the leftover chowder at the bottom of your bowl?? It’s just a little bit of tasty magic I feel that you really need in your life.

“This recipe has become one of my mainstays! I like to raise the spiciness factor by using a can of chipotles in adobo instead of the green chiles.” – Max

Hey girl I am so ready for Fall to! This looks amazing!

This looks amazing! I have leftover shredded chicken from another recipe. Should I dump it in at the beginning? Will it taste as good since the chicken won’t be actively cooking with the rest of it?

Thanks 🙂

This recipe has become one of my mainstays! I actually like to raise the spiciness factor by using a can of chipotles in adobo instead of the green chiles. I slice em up in the can with a clean pair of kitchen scissors, then pour them into the mix.

This looks sooooo good. I’ve added the ingredients to my shopping list. I may try it with crab instead of chicken.

Do I cook the bacon before adding it? I don’t see how it cooks in just 15 minutes

    She states in the recipe “4-6 strips bacon, diced and cooked til crispy.” I BAKED it for 20 min and it was perfect and ready to add to the chowder. Yum!

Hi there! Just curious what size creamed corn cans you used for this. 🙂 Excited to try this recipe!

This soup is amaZing!! I have tons leftover. Can i freeze this soup?

    Hi Jennifer – you can definitely freeze the leftovers!

What a wonderful and tasty looking recipe. Even with a suggested substitute for the heavy cream, it looks far too rich for my “well endowed fanny and tummy.”

Delicious. First time making it and it was a hit. Will spice it up a bit next time, probably hot peppers instead of mild.

Hi! Making this tonight…is the cook time low for 4 hours or 6 hours? I see both and wAs hoping for clarification. Thanks!

    Hi Ashley- my mistake! Thanks for pointing that out. It should all read 4 hours. I hope that it turns out great for you!

Hi TIffany,I made this chicken corn chowder tonight ,it was fabulous!! I coOked it 6 hours per instructions. It turned out fine other than the broth seemed a little thin. I seen that you said cook time should have been 4 hours and I was wondering if the extended time might have something to do with it? Is there a way to thicken it up a bit?this will DEFINITELY be one of our go to meals for the seaSon😊 Thanks!

    Hi Velvet- happy to hear that you enjoyed this soup so much!! I don’t think it had to do with the cooking time- maybe next time you can add a corn starch slurry of 2 T water + 2 T corn starch stirred, add to pot to cook for 30 minutes on high!

This recipe is so good that it made it to my book of favorite recipes! The perfect balance of sweet, savory, and spice. I’ve made it three times in the last month, and I’m making another batch today! Thank you!

    Best compliment, ever!! Super excited it has now made your favorites list. Thanks for stopping by, Kristen!
