Are you dreaming of comfort food? Delicious and creamy Slow Cooker Chicken Corn Chowder is the answer! Pair this with a bonus recipe of Parmesan Garlic Biscuits and you will have an easy week night favorite!
I’m pretty sure I made my favorite Corn and Potato Chowder recipe about 17,000 times last winter and never once got tired of it or wished I had something different. But, when I got to thinking about it this year after having people ask me several times for a version with meat, I decided to try something new after all! So I switched it up just a bit, left out the potatoes, added some chicken and made a few minor adjustments. Only problem? I like this version so much too, so creamy and filling! How will I ever decide which one to make for the rest of this chowder season?!?
And just to make sure I pleased all the meat lovers, do you see the bacon I crumbled on top there? You are so very welcome. I mean, technically it’s optional, but is bacon ever really optional?
Even better yet, on top of all this hearty, chicken and bacon packed chowder, I’m going to give you a bonus recipe! Because I can’t imagine how one might eat creamy chowder without biscuits, I’m sharing a simple recipe for parmesan garlic drop biscuits that you can make in about 15 minutes.
Take this Slow Cooker Chicken Corn Chowder to the next level and pair with my Parmesan Garlic Drop Biscuits!
- So simple! Grab these pantry staples: flour, baking powder, garlic powder, salt, butter, milk and parmesan cheese.
- While the chowder is doing it’s thing in the slow cooker mix ingredients as instructed in recipe below, adding the cheese last and being careful not to over-mix.
- These biscuits are very rustic in nature, delicious and on the table in no time. The absolute perfect compliment to the chicken corn chowder!
Try this try simple trick, it makes the Chicken Corn Chowder out of this world!
