Foodie Friday: Corn Chowder

I know it's August and in many places still quite hot out, even in this years mild summer, but I can't resist sharing this fantastic chowder with you all! Seriously, it is Heaven.

Ingredients:

  • 7 fresh corn ears - husked 
  • 2 smoked chicken breast - shredded
  • 6 slices of crispy bacon
  • 1/2 cup onion- finely chopped
  • 2 Tbsp. butter
  • 3 Tbsp. flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 3 medium potatoes- diced
  • 2 cups heavy cream

Directions:

  1. Spray oil over corn and broil until both sides are slightly charred.
  2. Saute bacon until crispy, then add butter and onion, cook for approx. 8 minutes or until tender. 
  3. Sprinkle flour in bacon mix and stir for 2 minutes, then slowly add broth and potatoes. 
  4. Simmer for 20 minutes or until potatoes are soft.
  5. Cut corn off cobs and add the corn, heavy cream and smoked chicken to the broth mixture.
  6. Simmer on low heat for 20 minutes.

Enjoy!
