Potato and Chicken Chowder

Wow, I'm sorry it's been so long since I've been around.  Is there such a thing are Christmas lag?  Wherein I'm feeding chicken nuggets and cold cereal to my family instead of cooking?  If so, I've got that.  But I'm slowly getting back into things.

I was going through my picture folder on my computer, and I saw this picture and for the life of me, I couldn't figure out WHAT recipe it was.  Soup, that's a much as I knew.

Thankfully after about a week of looking at this recipe, trying to figure out what recipe it was, or even IF I followed a recipe in making it, I finally got an answer.  So here ya go!  Now my mind can focus on other things. . .

  • 6 bacon strips
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1 box (approx 4.9 oz) Au Gratin Potatoes Mix (like Betty Crocker)
  • 2 cups hot water
  • 1 1/2 cups milk
  • 1 1/4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 can (approx 15oz) corn, drained
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 3 cups cooked chicken, cubed or shredded
  • 2/3 cup milk
  • shredded cheese for topping
In a large saucepan, brown the bacon and reserve 2Tbsp of the bacon drippings.  Crumble the bacon into small pieces, and saute the onions in the bacon drippings until tender.  Add the potatoes, including the sauce packet, water, milk, broth, corn and bay leaf.  Cook over medium heat for 15-20 minutes, stirring occasionally.  Reduce the heat, stir in the chicken and milk.  Heat through.  Discard bay leaf, and serve with bacon and cheese for topping.

  1. I looovveee potato soup/chowder but the only meat I've ever added was pork (ham in the soup itself or bacon on top). I'll have to try it out with chicken next time....I always have some in the freezer anyway.

  2. If I saw that picture and didn't know what it was, I'd drive myself crazy trying to find out. Creamy, cheesy, bacony--looks delicious.
    Thanks for linking up. I'm glad you joined in this week!
