How to Make It

Step 1

In a Dutch oven, saute bacon for approximately 8 minutes, until crispy. Remove bacon from pot.

Add bell pepper, onion, celery, bay leaves and thyme to pot, and saute until tender, approximately 6 minutes.

Step 3

Add chicken, and saute a further four minutes.

Step 4

While the veggie and chicken mixture is cooking, puree 1 cup corn and 1 cup chicken stock with flour in a blender, creating a slurry.

Step 5

Let simmer for 15 minutes.

Step 6

Divide soup into 6 bowls and garnish with bacon and celery leaves.
