Corn and Potato Chowder Recipe

This might seem like a lot of work – but once you get the corn cooked – you are in the home stretch – the rest is just stir/simmer/stir/simmer..

Corn and Potato Chowder Recipe


  • 4 Tbsp unsalted butter
  • 5 cups fresh corn kernels, save 2 cobs
  • 1/2 tsp dried thyme
  • 1 large sweet onion, chopped
  • 1 1/2 tsp kosher salt
  • 4 cups low sodium chicken broth
  • 1 large potato, peeled and diced
  • 3/4 cup half and half (I used fat free)


  1. Melt butter in medium pot over medium heat. Add corn, thyme, diced onion and salt. Cook, stirring here and there until the corn is tender but not browned.
  2. Stir in broth and diced potato. Crank up the heat to high. Add the 2 reserved corn cobs. Bring to a boil. Reduce heat, simmer, stirring occasionally, until the potatoes are tender. Discard cobs.
  3. Process 1/2 cup of the corn mixture in blender or food processor until smooth. Return to stockpot, stir in half and half. Serve immediately.
