There's a serious comfort that comes with eating chowder. It's soothes the soul and warms the heart. The hearty soup has been around for some time and the first recipes in the United States date all the back to 1884.
In this recipe we stay true to the basics like onion, garlic and celery but we slowly mix in cream cheese right at the end to take it to a whole other level of comfort. The cream cheese adds more depth and richness to this dish. Slowly cooking the chicken with the corn and bacon fat intensifies the flavor of the broth.
