Looking for a warm and cozy soup to try this winter? This Instant Pot: Chicken Corn Chowder with Bacon will hit the spot on cold winter days! For more soup recipes see my Soups page. Chicken Corn Chowder with Bacon Recipe, corn chowder, chicken chowder, corn potato chowder, corn soup My husband is always on the lookout for a new pressure cooker recipe. During these chilly winter days, soup is always on our mind. He found a great corn chowder recipe to use a base. Then he kicked it up by adding rotisserie chicken for a hearty meal.

Buying whole rotisserie chickens and pulling the meat off the bone is our new standby when we need to add chicken to a meal. Yes, rotisserie chickens can be injected with a lot of salt, but they add such so much more flavor to any meal. Just make sure you are not adding any extra unnecessary salt to the dish. Plus who wants to thaw and cook frozen chicken. It is so much faster just to buy it and pull the meat yourself. Rotisserie chicken makes every dish taste out of this world good.

Enough about my love of precooked chicken. Here is how we changed up this already fabulous recipe to suit our taste. If you would like to try the original you can find it on the super yummy Damn Delicious website. That girl has so many awesome recipes to try. Enjoy!
