Crock Pot Chicken Corn Chowder is a thick, creamy chowder filled with tender chicken, potatoes, corn, bacon and cheese.

I couldn’t wait any longer for the temps to fall to make this incredible Chicken Corn Chowder! It’s one of those soups that screams comfort food on a cold fall or winter day. Chicken, potatoes, corn and more are packed inside this amazing chowder making it one amazing meal.

I have been making this for over 10 years. I got the original recipe from an old co-worker at Rococo’s steakhouse where I worked many moons ago. πŸ™‚ Ryan was his name and he cooked this soup all the time during the lunch rush. He went on to make a cookbook with all his amazing soup recipes. This one is by far my favorite. It is so simple yet so flavorful.

I changed the original recipe a bit by cutting way down on the butter and cream. I also made it specifically for the slow cooker, so it could do the cooking for me while I go about my day. 😀

This recipe is a keeper, my friends. I hope you give it a try very soon. You won’t regret eating a bowl of this wonderful chowder!

  1. This sounds relish! I can’t wait to make it, but five pounds of potatoes sounds like a lot. Is it suppose to be 5 potatoes?

    1. You could double the amount of cornstarch if you’d like it thicker. And it takes a little time to thicken. Give it an extra 15 or 20 minutes

    2. I used an immersion blender to blend some of the potatoes with the broth. It thickened nicely and I ended up using less cream.

  2. Very delicious, however the corn starch and water didn’t do a whole lot to thicken it up. I had to add about a cup of all purpose flour to help thicken it. I will definitely be making this again!

  3. I want to make this, but im only feeding 2 and would be fine with a little leftover. Would cutting the ingredients in half still do alright??

      That’s exactly what i did…cut the recipe in half. I had more than enough for 3 adults & had 2 servings placed in grab~it bowls that went into freezer for another day when we want something quick but don’t feel like cooking. I also used half & half instead of the heavy whipping cream & it was just right for us…not super thick but a tad on the soupier side.

  4. This is amazing. We used perdue shortcuts honey chicken to save time and it worked great. Thank you so much for this recipe it is a keeper for sure.

  5. Would frozen cubed hash browns work instead of cubing 5 lbs of potatoes? Just trying to see what shortcuts I can make πŸ™‚

  6. Delicious!!! I did add some cajun seasoning to spice it up a bit. My husband and son loved it. I will be making it again but think I will only make half. It filled my crockpot

  7. Poor time management on my part caused me to put this on top of the stove instead of in a crockpot. I followed the recipe except it took only two and a half hours cooking time. The soup is amazing! I’m taking it to a potluck this evening and I can’t wait to share it. Thank for this great recipe.

    I use instant mashed potatoes to thicken it up quickly because I get frustrated waiting for cornstarch to thicken to the correct consistency.
