Ingredients

  • 6 strips bacon, sliced in lardons
  • 1 pound boneless skinless chicken thighs
  • 1 small yellow onion, diced
  • 2 celery ribs, diced
  • 4 cloves garlic, diced
  • 14oz can green chiles
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 2 cups full fat coconut milk
  • 1 teaspoon cumin
  • 1 teaspoon dried oregano
  • 1 teaspoon salt, plus more to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper, plus more to taste
  • 1 teaspoon dried parsley
  • 1 bay leaf
  • 1 1/2 pounds yellow potatoes, diced
  • 2 cups yellow corn
  • 2 tablespoons arrowroot starch
  • 1/4 cup sliced green onion, plus more for serving

Method

  1. Heat a large heavy-bottomed pot over medium-high heat. Once hot, add the bacon lardons to the pot. Cook the bacon for four to six minutes until crisp and then remove from the pot.
  2. Add the diced chicken thighs to the pot. Cook for four to six minutes until the chicken has browned.
  3. Add the diced onion, diced celery, and garlic to the pot. Cook for two to three minutes until the onions begin to become translucent.
  4. Add the diced potatoes, dried oregano, green chiles, bay leaves, dried parsley, cumin, salt, and pepper to the pot and stir until well combined.
  5. Pour in the full fat coconut milk and chicken broth. Stir until combined and bring the soup to a boil. Once boiling, reduce the heat to a simmer and cover. Let the chowder simmer for twenty to twenty-five minutes until the potatoes are fork tender. Add in the corn and cook for one minute to heat it through.
  6. Add the arrowroot starch and stir until well combined. The chowder should thicken as the arrowroot starch is stirred in.
  7. Finally, stir in three-fourths of the cooked bacon and sliced green onion.
  8. Give the chowder a taste and season with more salt and pepper, if needed. Serve the chowder in bowls topped with sliced green onion and the remaining crispy bacon.

Notes

!!
  • Add more arrowroot starch, one teaspoon at a time, to thicken the chowder even more if you prefer.
  • You can use boneless, skinless chicken breast if you prefer.
