Chicken & Corn Chowder with Roasted Potato |

A while back I won Family Spice Blog‘s giveaway and received Frieda’s Produce‘s potatoes, pearl onions, a cookbook, and a bag (Thank you Laura!). I have never purchased pearl onions before so I was really excited to try these onions.

Chicken & Corn Chowder with Roasted Potato Ingredients

Around the same time I received the giveaway package in the mail, I was thinking about making this roasted potato and corn chowder featured on Mom de Cuisine so it was perfect timing to try out using the ingredients I had received. I’ve prepared corn chowder many times before but I’ve never roasted potatoes before adding in the soup. It turned out to be a brilliant idea and as a potato lover myself, i did enjoy this soup a lot. My son who loves corn soup had 3 bowls in one night.

It was so delicious that I’ve already cooked this soup twice. The only changes I made from the original recipe was that I purposely bought rotisserie chicken the previous night and use the leftover meat to cook this soup the following day. I also added fresh thyme in the soup and that’s pretty much it. It’s getting really chilly these days and this is definitely a nice soup to keep yourself warm.

Chicken & Corn Chowder with Roasted Potato
Prep time
Cook time
Total time
Serves: 6-8
  • 1 lb baby red potatoes cut into ½ inch cubes
  • 1 large onion, diced (I used pearl onions)
  • 2-3 tablespoons olive oil
  • ½ tsp. salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 4 slices bacon (optional for garnish)
  • 2 Quarts (1900ml) chicken stock
  • 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken (I used Rotisserie chicken)
  • 1 can cream style corn
  • 1 can whole sweet corn
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 1 Tbsp. fresh thyme (plus some for garnish)
  • 1 tsp. salt, plus more, to taste
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  1. Preheat the oven to 375F (C). In a large bowl, toss potatoes, onions, olive oil, salt, and pepper together. Place the mixture on a baking sheet and roast until the skewer goes in side smoothly and the potato skin is crispy, about 30-45 minutes. Remove from the oven and set aside.
  2. While the potatoes are roasting, fry the bacon until crisp. Drain the extra oil on paper towels. After the bacon has cooled, chop into small pieces.
  3. In a large pot, bring chicken stock to a boil. Add the potatoes, chicken, both cans of corn, and thyme to the broth. Bring it to a boil again and once boiling, skim the scrum and fat from the soup. This is the important key to have nice refined soup, so don’t skip this process. Lower the heat to medium low and simmer for 5 minutes. Keep skimming during this time.
  4. Add heavy cream, salt, and pepper to taste, and cook until heated through, about 3 minutes. Serve into bowls and top with bacon and fresh thyme as garnish.

  1. Glad you liked it!!!! I like that you added thyme, I bet it was very nice in the soup. I really love your yellow dutch oven and your table cloth! Very beautiful post!

  2. What a beautiful sunny recipe for this time of year. I don’t recall having chowder before but I sure would like to try this one. Enjoy your day off and your family!

  3. Your corn chowder sounds wonderful. I love this soup but haven’t made one in years. I’ve printed this recipe and plan to make it over the holidays. You can never have too many soup recipes. This sounds perfect for a cold winters day! Thanks for sharing.

  4. Hi, Nami san.

    Corn chowder sounds too perfect for a chilly day like today here! Step by step instruction is very helpful and I do love to try making this soup. Actually, I can’t help myself ordering this soup when I see it on a menu. I love corn chowder that much!

  5. Corn chowder is one of my favorite dishes! I love the texture and the bright colors the corn brings to the dish. Loving your presentation, especially with the roses.

    Have an awesome Thanksgiving!

  6. I have never had chowder in my life (even though I often add corn to my soups). Yours looks gorgeous and roasting potatoes and onions sounds like the yummiest idea in the world. I also love the bacon touch. Very creative dish, Nami!
    Have a great time with your family!

  7. Delicious…what more can I say.
    When I was “young, rich and famous” (in other words: single…just kidding), I used to go to US for Thanksgiving, I have family in Florida and New Jersey, and my big brother lived in NY, so I enjoyed being ther for that holidays, having tons of food, different ones, in FL more like latin meal, in NJ I had Arabian (because my cousin’s wife) and in NY, well, my brother was single, so we had just some mash potato and pecan pie.
    I like traditions, and more than that when tradition is mixed with our roots.

  8. Your chicken corn chowder seems like a perfect evening dinner today, as its getting colder in Vancouver. We also had our first light snow last week. I was checking your blog and the Bento contest interested me. I am quite late but will regularly come to your blog. Happy Thanks giving to you.

  9. Your son had three bowls of soup? That must be one awesome soup!!:)
    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, enjoy your holidays, and I am sure we will have lots of happy treats on your blog when you are back!!:D

  10. I love chicken and corn chowder – it’s so satisying and tasty, though it’s important to use good corn because otherwise it can really give a funky taste to the chowder. I never tried it with roast potatoes before – I bet that gives a whole new consistency dimension to it… I’ll have to do that next time! I used to have an oven which had a rotisserie inside… couldn’t take it with me when I moved to a new apartment – I miss it so much sometimes :(

  11. My older son loves corn soup, and I in love with all kind of soup and chowder.
    This is the kind of chowder that I”ll have in the morning and night… again and again
    Tq fr sharing the recipe nami, glad u post this!
    great recipe and photos dear! as always! 😉

  12. Hi Nami-I am so thankful for you as my friend and… to have met you in person while I was in San Francisco for the FB Festival…even though you couldn’t attend, you made a special effort to meet up with me and Jo in person. The couple hours we spent at that lovely French bakery, just flew by, but it was very enjoyable to share stories, and connect in person!
    Happy Thanksgiving to you loved ones!

  13. おはようございます

    Hello Nami, this is what I’m cooking today, my dinner problem for today is solved!
    Have a great thanksgiving today, Black Friday tomorrow and a blasting following weekend!

  15. Hi Nami! This chicken and corn chowder looks delicious!! I love corn soup just like your son. They add such a yummy sweet flavor. I hope you guys get many creative submissions to the contest. I love Cooking Galleries’ food photos so much! She is super creative with her food designs and decorations. Would love to see photos of the top 10 or so submissions!

  16. Happy Thanksgiving, Nami! Hope you had a wonderful celebration with family, friends and delicious meals too. I’m thankful to have met such a sweet person like you, albeit virtually. This soup looks very comforting–I love the flavor of roast potatoes!

  17. Nami, this looks so comforting, especially now that it’s getting really cold over here. I have never tried adding roasted potatoes to chowder, you always have the most brilliant ideas :)!!

    By the way, thank you for spreading the words about the bento contest, so far there have been 2 entries, which are very cute! I am looking forward to seeing more beautiful bento entries :).

  18. I had my first chowder in Cali and I loved it! I need to have it every time I’m back. Well after seeing your recipe I can make my own =) so I don’t need to wait till I’m there.
    Hope you have a great week ahead!

  19. Nami, I can never stop drooling over your beautiful photos. The table setting etc is just so pretty. I don’t think I have the patience sometimes. LOL.. This is one soup that I can’t wait to cook on a cool day since it has been raining pretty often here in KL. And I love how there is corn involved. All the natural sweetness. Delish! Have a good week. Hugs, Jo

  20. I MUST TRY THIS! My family loves sweetcorn, esp my gals. They can eat sweetcorn everyday and will never get sick of it! 😀
    I cooked chicken corn chowder twice but just added potato cubes. Adding roasted potatoes with skin on looks and sounds so much more tastier. 😉
    So excited about CG’s bento contest and congrats on you being one of the judges! :)

  21. This is a dish I could eat till the cows come home. I love anything with corn. And chicken. And potatoes. Wonderful way to combine them. I love the bentos. I sure wish I had known about them when my kids were younger.
