Quick Homemade Chicken Soup Recipe

This Chicken & Corn Chowder is comfort food at its best! It is the perfect way to warm up in this chilly weather. Creamy cheesy chicken and corn soup with a little kick. The best part about this soup is that it is ready in about 30 minutes! WOO HOO!!

We ate this Chicken & Corn Chowder for lunch and dinner the same day. We still had a lot of leftover soup, so I boxed it up and shared it with a friend. She LOVED it.

How to Make Chicken & Corn Chowder

This soup is very easy to make. Start with chopping up a rotisserie chicken. Add the chicken meat to a Dutch oven. Stir in onion, garlic, cumin, salt, pepper, chicken bouillon, water, half-and-half, creamed corn, corn kernels, green chiles, and pepper jack cheese. Bring the soup to a boil and simmer for about 20 minutes.

  • I used a rotisserie chicken in this soup. Feel free to use 4 or 5 cups of any cooked chicken.
  • There is a can of chopped green chiles in this soup. It gives the soup a nice flavor and not any real heat.
  • I also used shredded Pepper Jack Cheese in the soup. Feel free to swap that out for plain Monterey Jack cheese if you don’t want the extra peppers.
  • Can Chicken & Corn Chowder be made in the slow cooker? Yes! You can make the soup in the crockpot. Dump everything in the slow cooker, cover, and cook on LOW for about 4 to 6 hours.
  • Feel free to add potatoes or bacon to the soup.
  • Is Chicken & Corn Chowder gluten-free? Yes! All of the ingredients in the soup are gluten-free. Make sure to buy a gluten-free chicken bouillon.

    1. Sure! I haven't made this in the slow cooker so I can say exactly how long. Just until it is hot – at least 3 or 4 hours on low?

    1. You can certainly do that. The chicken flavor won’t be as strong as the combination above is about twice as strong as regular broth.
