Slow Cooker Potato and Corn Chowder
15 minutes
4 hours, 15 minutes
4 hours, 30 minutes
1 pound baby red potatos, cut into 1-inch pieces
24 ounces frozen corn
1 white onion, small diced
2 tablespoons flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 teaspoon dried thyme
3 cups chicken stock
1 1/2 cups cream or half-and-half
1/2 cup milk
8 strips smoked bacon, cooked and crumbled (optional)
Place the chopped potatoes, frozen corn and onion in the bottom of a 4-quart slow cooker. Add the flour, salt, pepper, garlic powder and thyme and stir to combine. Pour in the chicken stock.
Cover and cook on high for 3 to 4 hours, or on low for 7 hours.
Once cooked and the potatoes are tender, pour in the cream, milk and crumbled bacon. 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!
Note: All slow cookers are a little bit different in temperature and calibration. This recipe was tested in Cooktop Cove's Test Kitchen using this slow cooker, which is available for purchase here.
