My son and I absolutely love the Chicken Corn Chowder they serve at the Animal Kingdom Lodge’s Boma restaurant at Walt Disney World.

I was able to find a copycat recipe here but made a few updates to the recipe. My version is a bit lighter than the original recipe (I omitted the heavy cream), and I used more chicken broth than the original.

Everyone I serve this Chicken Corn Chowder to loves it. I love that it’s an easy recipe and it brings back fond memories of one of our favorite Disney World resorts.

Step One

In a large soup pot or dutch oven, bring the chicken broth to a boil.

Step Two

Add the milk, parsley, and hot sauce to the chicken chowder mixture and allow it to simmer for 5 minutes.

Serve this easy chicken corn chowder recipe hot as is, or add in any of the optional toppings. Add a loaf of crusty bread, and you’ve got the perfect comfort food meal!

Tips and Ideas for Making this Creamy Chicken Corn Chowder Recipe

  • If you have leftover rotisserie chicken, this is a great way to use it up in. Grilled leftover chicken also works well.
  • You can substitute boneless, skinless chicken thighs in this recipe.
  • Be sure to dice the potatoes into small pieces so they cook completely.
  • If fresh summer corn is in season, you can remove it from the cob and substitute it for the frozen corn in this soup recipe.
  • I do not recommend substituting creamed corn for the frozen corn in this recipe. Yes, it will technically work, but you won’t get the same fresh flavor you’ll get by using frozen kernels.
  • I like to use whole milk in this recipe, but you can use whatever kind you have on hand.

  • Once the chicken is done cooking (internal temperature of 165 degrees Fahrenheit) remove the chicken from the pot with a slotted spoon ad place it in your soup pan.
