How to Make Easy Slow Cooker Chicken & Corn Soup

You’re going to be amazed at how easy this soup is to make with minimal effort! 

A hearty and creamy slow cooker soup recipe for the whole family.

After dicing and slicing the vegetables, everything is added to the slow cooker, which does most of the cooking for you.

Step 1: Grab Your Slow Cooker

To start, you will need a 6 quart slow cooker. This is a similar slow cooker to the one that I used for this soup recipe.

Step 2: Add the Ingredients to the Slow Cooker

Add the chicken breasts to the bottom of the slow cooker.

Then add peeled & diced carrots, thinly sliced leeks, yellow waxy potatoes cut into about 1″ sized pieces (I left the skin on), and the minced garlic.

Drain the can of green chiles, and add the drained chiles to the slow cooker along with the 2 cans of creamed corn.

Pour the chicken broth into the slow cooker and add in the bay leaves.

Step 3: Slow Cook the Soup

Cover the slow cooker and cook the soup on low for 5-6 hours (until the chicken is fully cooked).

Step 4: Shred the Chicken

Once the chicken is cooked, shred the chicken with two forks (either in the soup or remove to shred and add the shredded chicken back to slower cooker).

Chicken and corn soup is a great meal the whole family will enjoy.

Step 5: Finishing the Soup

Add the half & half, cooked bacon, parsley, chives, and salt & pepper (to taste) to the soup.

Cook on low for another 20 minutes.

Serve hot and enjoy!

Tips & Tricks

  • Use boneless, skinless chicken breasts or boneless skinless chicken thighs for tenderness and ease of shredding.
  • Fresh or frozen corn both work well in this recipe. If using fresh corn, scrape the corn kernels off the cob for the best flavor. If using frozen, avoid thawing beforehand.
  • Adjust the ratio of heavy cream and milk according to your preference. For a richer soup, increase the cream; for a lighter version, reduce it.
  • Use two forks to easily shred the cooked chicken. It should be tender enough to break apart easily.
  • If you have leftovers, store the soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to 3-4 days. When reheating, do so gently over low heat to avoid curdling the cream.
  • This soup can be frozen, but be aware that the texture of the dairy-based soup might change slightly upon thawing and reheating.

Garnishes for Chicken & Corn Soup

I like to sprinkle a little chopped smoky bacon for crunch, chopped chives (or green onions) for freshness, and cracked black pepper for seasoning to the top of this hearty soup.

This also adds a little pop of color to the creamy, white color of the soup.

My family also likes to add shredded cheddar cheese and a few oyster crackers to their soups as well.

What to Serve With Your Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder

This creamy soup is hearty enough to be served on its own! 

However, crusty bread or cornbread muffins are always great accompaniment with any soup. It’s perfect for soaking up those last few bites of homemade broth so every drop of soup is eaten! 

Here are a couple of side dishes you could serve alongside this chicken & corn soup to make a great meal.

  • Grilled Cheese Sandwiches: Soup and grilled cheese is a classic combination.
  • Side Salad: A light side salad provides a refreshing contrast to the richness of the soup. Choose a simple garden salad with mixed greens, cherry tomatoes, cucumbers, and a tangy vinaigrette.
  • Cheese & Crackers: Create a cheese and cracker platter with an assortment of cheeses, such as cheddar, brie, and gouda, paired with whole grain or artisanal crackers.
  • Cornbread Muffins: Cornbread muffins are a classic choice to accompany creamy soups. The slightly sweet and crumbly texture of cornbread complements the richness of the soup perfectly.
  • Paninis: A versatile option that can be customized to complement the flavors of the soup.
  • Or…how about serving your soup in a bread bowl?! So yummy!
Creamy chicken corn soup is filled with yellow waxed potatoes, corn kernels, and shredded chicken.
