Should we really eat chowder that isn't loaded? Absolutely not! Thank goodness this chowder is chalked full of chicken, peppers, peas and of course, bacon!

  • 6 cups chicken broth
  • 1 cup cream
  • 2 chicken breasts
  • 1 cup peas
  • 1 pepper
  • 1/2 tbsp garlic
  • 2 tsp salt
  • 4 tbsp corn starch (and water to create slurry)
  • 2 tsp pepper
  • 4-5 strips of bacon
  • Green onions and chili flakes


  1. Chop up your @trulocal chicken breasts into cubes and add them to an oiled pan on medium heat and cook for 6-8 minutes per side.
  2. Once it’s cooked, remove it from the pan and add in the chopped @trulocal bacon. Cook for 1-2 minutes per side. 
  3. To a pot add the chicken broth, cream, pepper, garlic, peas, and salt. 
  4. To a separate bowl mix together the corn starch and water to create a slurry. Add this into the mix and stir consistently to avoid clumping. 
  5. Let it boil over medium-high heat for 5-7 minutes. 
  6. Once it starts to thicken, add in the chicken and bacon and let it boil for another 5 minutes.   
  7. Top with green onions and chilli flakes
