Chicken & Corn Chowder with Roasted Potato

Chicken & Corn Chowder with Roasted Potato Recipe | JustOneCookbook.com

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.

Chicken & Corn Chowder with Roasted Potato II

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.

  • Alyssa November 23, 2011, 12:48 am

    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!

  • Fern @ To Food with Love November 23, 2011, 1:05 am

    Oh wow, stunning photos and love the colour of the roses! I’ve never had corn chowder before but this looks utterly delicious! Yumyum!!!

  • RawFoodHaven November 23, 2011, 2:19 am

    Lets enjoy the Thanksgiving!

    This will bring warm for the coming holiday season!

  • Lorraine @ Not Quite Nigella November 23, 2011, 2:54 am

    I absolutely know 1005 that I would love this. Corn chowder is my weakness-if I see it, I must order it :P

  • Baker Street November 23, 2011, 3:30 am

    Oh I love your pictures and they way you’ve presented your delicious chowder.

  • Emily @ Life on Food November 23, 2011, 4:00 am

    I have never thought of roasting potatoes pre soup. My husband isn’t a huge fan of soup because he says it doesn’t fill him up. The big chunks of this soup could certainly change his mind.

  • Sandra November 23, 2011, 4:28 am

    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!

  • Belinda @zomppa November 23, 2011, 4:44 am

    Warms everything! I can’t wait for the bento boxes!!

  • Vicki Bensinger November 23, 2011, 5:02 am

    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.

  • Yuri November 23, 2011, 5:21 am

    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!

  • Cassie November 23, 2011, 5:26 am

    This sounds so good, Nami! I love hearty soups this time of year. Have a wonderfully blessed Thanksgiving!

  • Helene Dsouza I Masala Herb November 23, 2011, 5:46 am

    Yummy chowder! I like the idea roasting the potatoes and keeping the potato peel, should give it all a deeper flavoure. I wish u a happy thanks giving Nami and your family! =)

  • Sonia November 23, 2011, 6:27 am

    Sound healthy and good. Have a nice holidays ahead.

  • Divya November 23, 2011, 6:44 am

    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!

  • Sissi November 23, 2011, 7:20 am

    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!

  • Ann@Anncoo Journal November 23, 2011, 7:22 am

    Nami, Your chicken corn chowder looks very delicious! I love this hearty especially in the rainy season like now.

  • Laura @ Family Spice November 23, 2011, 8:34 am

    I’m so glad you liked the potatoes. I love chowder and this looks so delicious! And everything tastes better with bacon! Happy THanksgiving!

  • Elizabeth @Mango_Queen November 23, 2011, 10:16 am

  • Sook November 23, 2011, 11:21 am

    Nami, the chowder looks so good! I need something warm and creamy like this… so cold!! and I live in California… lol

  • Manju November 23, 2011, 11:32 am

    That is one big bowl of comfort, Nami! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family!

  • Katherine Martinelli November 23, 2011, 11:50 am

    I would love a big bowl of this soup! I have been craving something like this so will definitely be making this soon! Have a wonderful Thanksgiving with your family :-D

  • Mi Vida en un Dulce November 23, 2011, 12:46 pm

    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.

  • Chopinand @ ChopinandMysaucepan November 23, 2011, 2:05 pm

    When I think of chowder, I think of seafood and living in Sydney, there is no other way for me to do it other than using fresh seafood, fortunately or otherwise :)

  • tigerfish November 23, 2011, 2:51 pm

    Pearl onions are so good in stews! I bet you can use some for Japanese curries :)

    Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Nami.

  • balvinder November 23, 2011, 4:48 pm

    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.

  • Priscilla - She's Cookin' November 23, 2011, 4:59 pm

    Next time I roast potatoes, I’m making extra to use in chowder – great idea! Happy Thanksgiving to you and your family, Nami!

  • Reem | Simply Reem November 23, 2011, 6:41 pm

    Oh Nami I love corn chowder…

    Happy thanksgiving to u Nami.

  • Charles November 24, 2011, 5:39 am

    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 :(

  • Elies_Lie November 24, 2011, 5:43 am

    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

    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!

    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

  • Lindsey@Lindselicious November 27, 2011, 11:24 pm

    I made it last Friday Nami! I used milk instead of heavy cream but it was delicious anyway!
    Thank you!

    • Nami November 29, 2011, 1:31 am

      Hi Eri! Thank you for trying out this recipe already! I’m so glad to hear you liked it! :-)

  • Amy @ uTryIt November 28, 2011, 6:10 pm

    This is such a wonderful recipe….I’m drooling over your chicken and corn chowder now. :P This sounds like the perfect comfort food for a cold Winter night. :)


  • Lyn November 30, 2011, 3:34 am

    I MUST TRY THIS! My family loves sweetcorn, esp my gals. They can eat sweetcorn everyday and will never get sick of it! :D
    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! :)

  • Dmarie November 30, 2011, 6:10 am

    I am wild about soups, and this looks divine!!

  • Kim Bee December 3, 2011, 7:40 pm

    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.

  • Ann Vedo December 6, 2011, 1:22 pm
