Potato and Corn Chowder
15 minutes
4 hours
4 hours + 15 minutes
1lb (450g) baby red potatos, cut into 1" pieces
24oz (680g) frozen corn
1 white onion, chopped
1 1/2 cup (355ml) cream or half and half
1/2 cup (118ml) milk
3 cups (710ml) chicken stock
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon thyme
2 tablespoons flour
(optional) 8 strips of smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled
Place the chopped potatoes, onions and frozen corn in the bottom of a 4 quart slow cooker. Pour in the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme and stir to combine. Pour over the chicken stock and cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 7 hours.
Once cooked and the potatoes are tender, pour in the cream, milk and crumbled bacon and stir with a wooden spoon to combine. Cover and cook on high for another 15 minutes.
Pro tip: This soup is a brilliant excuse to use up any leftover cooked chicken (or turkey) in the fridge. Simply shred up your chicken and throw it in the soup along with the milk and cream to heat through before serving!
