The best way to enjoy this warm chicken corn chowder soup is with a slice of crusty bread to wipe the bowl clean. Yum!

How Long Is Chicken Corn Chowder Good For?

You can refrigerate the corn chowder in an airtight clean container for up to 4days.

To freeze the chowder, the best is to store it in portions. You can store it in freezer-safe containers, and thaw the chowder as much you need.

If you are using cream/milk in the chowder, then freezing won't be a good option as milk/cream does not thaw well to maintain the texture of the soup.

Tip's To Make The Best Chicken Corn Chowder:

  1. You can freeze the chowder for up to 1 month.
  2. Substitute cream with potato starch, for a dairy-free option.
  3. If you are planning to freeze the soup then avoid adding dairy to the soup, as it won't thaw well. You can add cream/milk after heating the soup well.
  4. You can use store-bought rotisserie chicken, instead of cooking chicken.
  5. Try using fresh sweet corn for this recipe. Frozen works fine too in case you can get a fresh one.
  6. If you do not eat dairy then using flour to thicken the soup will work. Also, adding some potato pureed can be used too.
