Chicken Chowder

Harvest Chicken Chowder

Diana Rattray
Chicken and apple sausage and apple cider help to flavor this tasty chicken chowder.


  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1 cup diced celery
  • 8 to 12 ounces diced chicken apple sausage
  • 1 cup apple cider
  • 2 1/2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup diced carrot
  • 2 cups diced potato
  • 1 cup diced cooked chicken
  • 1 cup corn kernels
  • 2 1/2 cups milk
  • 1/2 cup all-purpose flour
  • 2 cups shredded sharp Cheddar cheese
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped parsley, or 1 teaspoon dried parsley flakes
  • Salt and pepper, to taste


Heat olive oil in a large saucepan or Dutch oven; add chopped onion, celery, and diced sausage. Cook over medium heat, stirring, until onion and celery are wilted and sausage is lightly browned. Add the juice, chicken broth, carrots, and potatoes. Bring to a boil over high heat. Reduce heat to medium-low and cover; simmer for 30 minutes, or until vegetables are tender. Add the corn and chicken.

In a medium bowl, whisk 1 cup of the milk with the 1/2 cup of flour. Stir into the pot with the remaining 1 1/2 cups of milk. Cook, stirring, until thickened. Stir in cheese until melted and the chowder is hot. Add parsley and salt and pepper, to taste.
Serves 6 to 8.

One of the best soups I have ever made!, Member KristinaDuda

This chowder is amazing!! I wanted to make some sort of chicken soup for dinner but didn't want to go with the boring noodle variety. I came upon this recipe and had all of the ingredients, so I decided to try it. I actually substituted the chicken sausage with regular sweet italian sausage (because that's what I had in my freezer) and it turned out delicious. I will absolutely make it again. Even my picky husband and son (who won't eat anything where the ingredients are mixed together) ate every last bite. Excellent recipe!
