Wawa Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe

Now it’s time to get down to why you’re here! Let’s look at hows to make this convenience store favorite. The recipe we’re looking at today is inspired by a recipe from Wabi Sabi Life.

Ingredients

The ingredients you’ll need for this recipe are:

  • 1lb of chicken breast
  • 2x 14oz cans of corn (cream style)
  • 1x 14oz can of sweetcorn (drain)
  • 2 russet potatoes (peel and chop)
  • 4oz pimentos (dice)
  • 1 stalk of carrots (diced)
  • 1 stalk of celery (diced)
  • 2 cups of chicken broth
  • 1 teaspoon of onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon of garlic powder
  • salt (to taste)
  • black pepper (to taste)
  • 8oz of cream cheese (cube)
  • 16oz of heavy whipping cream
  • Old Bay seasoning (to taste/optional)

Recipe

Now all you need to do is:

Step 1: Prepare

Gather all of your ingredients. Prepare all of your vegetables. You need to drain the sweetcorn before using it. Then you’ll need to peel and chop the potatoes, dice the pimentos, carrots, and celery, and cube your cream cheese.

Step 2: Add to slow cooker

For best results, this recipe requires a slow cooker. Add all of your prepared vegetables and other ingredients to your slow cooker; ensuring you leave the cream cheese and heavy whipping cream outside of the slow cooker for later. You’ll need to leave the cooker on high heat for around 4-5 hours (or 6-8 hours on a low heat).

Step 3: Add dairy

Around 20 minutes before the dish is ready, turn the heat to low (if it isn’t already). Now it’s time to shred the chicken and add the cream cheese and whipping cream. Mix well until well combined with the other ingredients.

Step 4: Serve

After twenty minutes, mix once more. If there are any remaining lumps of cream cheese, leave for a further five minutes. Once the cream cheese has melted, stir well and your chowder is ready to serve. Enjoy!

TIPS:

  • If you need to make this recipe dairy-free, substitute the cream cheese and heavy whipping cream for a dairy-free alternative
  • Using a slow cooker saves a lot of time, and is super easy to prepare. However, if you use a liner for your slow cooker – it can make your cleaning up time even easier!
  • Make more than you need! This soup can be frozen, so if you make a large batch and don’t finish it all, you can pop it in the freezer for another day
  • Don’t skip preheating your slow cooker and always leave your meat out of the refrigerator for around 5 minutes before adding it to the slow cooker – this is an easy way to make the tastiest chicken
  • Seasoning. Seasoning is the most important thing. Salt is great at enhancing the flavor of any dish, and this dish is no different!
