This is a big beautiful bowl of yumminess that just warms you from the inside out.  You can use leftover chicken or rotisserie chicken in this recipe or just fry up a couple of chicken breasts.

I like to choose tomatoes that are just barely ripe.  I find the tart flavor adds a nice balance to the sweet corn!

  • Combine 1 1/2 cups corn, 1 cup broth and 1 tablespoon flour in the blender. Blend until smooth and set aside.
  • Cook bacon in a large pot until crisp. Remove from the pot and place on a paper towel-lined plate.
  • Turn heat to medium and add onion and celery to the bacon grease in the pan and cook until tender, 3-4 minutes. Add garlic and cook until fragrant.
  • Add potatoes, remaining broth, and seasonings. Bring to a boil over medium-high heat. Reduce to a simmer and cover. Cook 10-12 minutes or until potatoes are tender. For a thicker chowder, gently mash a few of the potatoes if desired.
  • Add remaining ingredients and simmer 5 minutes or until slightly thickened.
  • Garnish with reserved bacon and serve.
