Barbeque Chicken, Cheese and Corn Chowder ~







 
 

Barbeque, barbecue, bbq..... it's all good!

I've been playing around with different flavors in corn chowder for a while now and I think I've finally hit a home run.  My youngest son loves corn chowder and so I've been on a quest to combine all of his favorite flavors.  So this chowder fits the bill.  It's smokey, with bacon and barbequed chicken too.  It's nice and cheesy with a whole pound of cheddar cheese and it has a little kick with cayenne pepper.  Creamy, cheesy and barbeque...... what's not to love.

So if you like all of these flavors, you'll love this soup.

Barbeque Chicken, Cheese and Corn Chowder

1/2 pound uncooked bacon, diced
1 large Spanish onion, peeled and diced

1 large red pepper, diced
3 carrots, peeled and diced
3 ribs celery, diced
3 cloves garlic, minced
5 medium yukon gold potatoes, diced into 1/2 inch cubest
6 cups chicken stock
1/4 teaspoon ground cayenne pepper
2 teaspoons ground coriander
2 cans (16 ounces each) whole kernel corn, drained
2 cans (16 ounces each) creamed corn
1 pound (16 ounces) sharp cheddar cheese, grated
2 cups of light cream

Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper (to taste)

1 breast of chicken with skin and bone in, baked with 1/2 cup of good store bought barbeque sauce.  I used Hickory Flavored.

Turn oven on to 350 degrees F. and bake chicken uncovered for 55 minutes.  Remove from
oven, let cool, remove skin and bone, shred meat.  Set aside.


Heat a stockpot over medium-high heat and add the bacon. Cook the bacon until brown and crispy. Remove the bacon from the pot and set aside on paper towels to drain.  Dice bacon finely.

Discard all but 2 tablespoons of the bacon drippings. Add the onion, carrots, celery, red pepper, and garlic to the drippings and saute for 5 minutes.

Add the potatoes, stock, cayenne pepper, and coriander. Bring to a boil. Reduce the heat to medium and simmer for 20 minutes.

Add the whole kernel corn, creamed corn, cheese, and cream. Simmer an additional 7 minutes.
Add the shredded chicken and cooked bacon, stir and let sit for 10 minutes.  Stir, taste and add salt and freshly ground pepper if needed.


Serve with a nice, crusty bread.  Enjoy ~
