Bobby Flay offers a recipe for chicken and bacon corn chowder from his show "FoodNation with Bobby Flay." The recipe involves making chicken broth from scratch and mixing the broth with bacon, onion, celery, fresh corn and potatoes. The full recipe with amounts and detailed instructions is available at FoodNetwork.com.
To make the chicken broth, boil a large chicken with chopped onion, celery and carrot, whole cloves of garlic, and sprigs of fresh thyme. Strain the broth and separate the meat from the chicken, reserving for the soup. Cook bacon and olive oil in a large pot along with diced celery, onion, potatoes and fresh corn, and then add the chicken broth and simmer. Add heavy cream and the chicken meat back to the soup after the vegetables are tender, season with salt and pepper, and serve in warm bowls.
