Healthy Meals Monday: Southern Chicken and Corn Chowder

Fall is COMING!!! A few days ago it was an overcast day so I knew it was time to whip up some homemade soup. I especially love soup when it is served in bread bowls. It is much more healthier without the bread bowls but it sure does taste amazing with them!

Southern Chicken and Corn Chowder


  • 3 Tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • 2 Potatoes, washed and cubed
  • 1/2 bag of baby carrots, chopped
  • 2 celery stalks, chopped
  • 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 1 jalapeno pepper
  • 3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 2 cups milk
  • 2 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
  • 1 32 oz bag of frozen corn
  • 1/2 package of taco seasoning
  • 1/2 cup of salsa
  1. Drizzle olive oil into the bottom of a large, lidded soup pot. Place over medium heat.
  2. Add chopped onion, carrots, celery, and minced garlic. Cover pot with lid and cook for about 5 minutes.
  3. Remove stems, seeds, and membrane from jalapeno pepper. Dice pepper finely and add to other vegetables.
  4. Cube chicken breasts and add to vegetables. Add enough water to slightly cover all ingredients. Cover pot with lid and cook for about 10 minutes.
  5. Combine milk, flour, taco seasoning, and salsa in a measuring cup and stir well. Add to chowder.
  6. Open packages of frozen corn and add to the chowder.
  7. Sprinkle dried thyme into chowder and stir to combine.
  8. Cover pot with lid and simmer over low heat for about 20 minutes.
I served mine in bread bowls, but can be served in any bowl.Recipe adapted from add a pinch

    I made this tonight and it was alright. The ingredients call for potatoes, but the recipe does not say when to add them. I’m new to cooking so I like to follow recipe’s to a T. I was a little disappointed.

    Please, please, double check your recipes …. this was horrible. First of all, you list 2 potatoes in the ingredients and then do not include them in the recipe. You ask us to add 1T of oil to an onion, 2 potatoes (possibly), carrots, celery and garlic and cover and cook for 5 minutes. I have been cooking for more than 50 years …. there is no way that amount of oil and that amount of vegetables can cook that long without sticking to the pot. You ask that we cook this until the chicken is ‘done’, but you have asked for cooked chicken (I know no way to get it cooked twice by your method). All together this recipe is a mess and you need to not continue to publish such messed-up recipes if you want any kind of a following.
