I really thought that our Summer was going to make a rebound, but it appears that the cooler weather here is officially here to stay. While I’m not quite ready for Winter, I’m definitely in a cozy soup mood and this Slow Cooker New England Chicken Chowder is hitting the spot this week.

To whip up this tasty soup, just add bacon, chicken, chicken broth, and veggies to your crockpot and set it to low for 4 hours or high for 2 hours. Your carrots and potatoes should be nice and tender and the chicken should be fully cooked through.

Remove the chicken from the crockpot and shred it with a couple of forks. Personally, I prefer larger pieces of chicken in the soup but shred to your own heart’s content. Return the chicken to the pot and combine corn and milk and blend until smooth.

Blending sweet yellow corn with Promised Land Whole Milk is what gives this soup its creamy, texture and rich flavor. I just might have to add this quick step to all of my corn chowder recipes from now on!

Stir that creamed corn back into the pot and let it heat up for another 10 minutes or so, then serve with grated parmesan cheese, black pepper, and fresh basil. Let your slow cooker do the work and enjoy a delicious dinner with minimal prep! This soup is so easy to make and has incredible flavors you’ll crave all season long.

This looks good and I would like to try it but there are a couple of things that I need clarified:
1. Two cans of corn – what size cans?
2. One baby baby red potatoes quartered – not sure what this means? Maybe one pound?

    I would imagine she MEANS REGULAR size canned corn. (Not large or small) & 1 pound small red potatoes

    I am pretty sure she means Two 15.25 ounce cans & one pound baby red potatoes. That would be typical for a recipe lIke this.

This chowder looks amazing! Can’t wait to give it a try.

1 baby baby red potatoes? Is this 1 baby red potato?

is it one pound of baby baby red potatoes quartered ? : )

What is the measurement on the potatoes please?

I’m confused-one baby baby potato, quartrred?

Is it 1 pound baby red potatoes? The ingredient list isn’t clear?

hey girl- this chowder looks amazing!

Does anyone know the potato quantity? Is it a lb…a bag…one baby red potato

Excellent! I used red potatoes (about 4) and recommend cubing rather than cutting into quarter but it’s preference- this is a great main course!

Really good 🙂 Just made it. I used 3 cups of bone broth for added health benefits…and it took longer for my 2 large chicken breasts plus potatoes to cook. My crockpot cooked it on low for about 6 hours.

how many potatoes do I need for this recipe you have a mistake in the recipe

I see in the picture that there are cherry tomatoes in the soup, but I do not see it listed in the ingredients. How many should I use?

    Hi Emily- what you are seeing are actually the chopped carrots. There are no cherry tomatoes in this recipe!

THis looked really good, but it was very bland. I used at least twice the amount of seasonings from the recipe and it still had very little flavor. Also the cooking time of 2 hours on high is completely wrong. none of the vegetables were cooked soft enough.

    Sorry to hear that you weren’t completely satisfied with this recipe 🙂

This soup is delicious! Ive made it several times and its our favorite of all the soups I make. Ive added smoked sauSage and shrimp sometimes for a change of pace Thanks for a great soup!

    Best compliment to hear!! Thanks, Renee! It sounds so delicious with added smoked sausage and shrimp!! Definitely going to try that next time 🙂

What are the nutritional facts for this Recipe? For like tracking macros?

    I recommend that you use MyFitnessPal. They have a great tool where you can input any recipe URL into and it will generate any nutritional information that you need 🙂

Is there a way to cook this in an instant pot (and use the pressure cook setting?)

    Hi Maddy! I haven’t done this myself so I can’t say for sure- but I definitely think it can be done!

should we cook the chicken prior? what do you think about the scum?

    No, you do not need to cook the chicken prior. The recipe is written to have raw chicken added and cooked in the slow cooker.

Hi-any recommendation for a substitute for the corn. I can’t eat corn. ThaNks!

    You can just leave it out or replace it with something else you enjoy!

What are the carbs,fats and protein and serving size? It looks delicious.

    I don’t have that information on hand- but you could try using MyFitnessPal. They have a tool where you can input any recipe URL into it and it will generate all the nutritional information for you.

      Tried Fitness Pal to calculate nutritional information. The link is too long. I shortened it using and it still did not find the recipe. A recipe is incomplete without this vital information. Will not be trying.

AgrEe that timing is off. 2 hours on high and i thought my crockpot was broken nothing was done! May try again but need to adjust time and seasoning.
