This hearty comfort food soup can be done in just 30 minutes! Grab a rotisserie chicken from the store or use up leftover chicken or turkey.



  • 2 tablespoons olive oil
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 2 tablespoons chopped garlic
  • 1 pound small potatoes, quartered
  • 1 teaspoon kosher salt
  • Fresh black pepper to taste
  • 1/4 cup flour
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup heavy cream
  • 3 cups cooked, shredded chicken
  • 6 slices bacon, cooked and chopped
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • Chopped scallions and extra bacon for garnish


  1. Heat a large pot with the oil and butter over medium heat. Add the onions and garlic, stir and cook for 3-4 minutes.
  2. Add the potatoes to the pot and stir into the onions and garlic. Cook for 5 minutes until the potatoes soften slightly, then sprinkle in the flour, salt and pepper. Stir to coat the vegetables in the flour and cook for 1 minute longer.
  3. Slowly pour in the chicken stock, stirring as you go to get all the flavor from the bottom of the pot into the broth. Bring to a boil and then simmer for 10 minutes, uncovered.
  4. Stir in the cream and then add the chicken, corn and bacon. Cook for 5 minutes, taste for seasonings and adjust if needed.
  5. Top with the chopped scallions and more chopped bacon if desired.
