  • Total Time: 55 minutes

Serving Size

  • Serves 4 to 6 people

Ingredients

  • 2 tablespoons unsalted butter
  • 1 large onion, finely chopped
  • 2 medium carrots, diced
  • 2 celery stalks, diced
  • 2 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 pound boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-sized pieces
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 large potatoes, peeled and diced
  • 1 cup sweet corn (frozen or fresh)
  • 1 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 teaspoon paprika
  • Salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • Fresh parsley, chopped for garnish

Directions

  1. Prepare the Vegetables: In a large pot, melt butter over medium heat. Add the onion, carrots, and celery. Cook until the vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes. Add garlic and cook for another minute.
  2. Cook the Chicken: Increase the heat to medium-high and add the chicken pieces. Cook until the chicken is no longer pink on the outside, about 5-7 minutes.
  3. Simmer the Chowder: Add the chicken broth, potatoes, sweet corn, thyme, and paprika to the pot. Season with salt and pepper. Bring to a boil, then reduce heat and simmer, covered, for about 20 minutes, or until the potatoes are tender.
  4. Final Touches: Stir in the heavy cream and simmer for another 5 minutes, until the chowder is heated through and slightly thickened. Taste and adjust seasoning as needed.
  5. Serve: Ladle the chowder into bowls and garnish with fresh parsley. Serve hot.
