Garlic Butter!! Creamed Corn Chicken! Oh my gosh, is there anything better? This chicken is made in under an hour, uses just one skillet, and is beyond delicious. It’s creamy, garlicky, packed with corn, and finished with fresh herbs and parmesan. Perfect cozy, summer dinner for any night of the week.

This is what I call summer comfort food. As you guys know, come the fall months I’m all about cozy, comfort foods, but I also think that summer can use a cozier recipe or two. Enter this creamed corn chicken.

It’s cozy, but yet totally summery at the same time, and I am in love with it.

Plus, it’s a one skillet, no oven, kind of recipe. So for those of you who don’t want to do a lot of dishes and can’t even begin to think about turning on the oven in the summer heat, this is your dinner.

Before I dive into all the details, I have to say thank you to everyone who commented on Monday’s post. I was so thrilled to see that so many of you enjoy my stories in addition to my recipes. Rambling on about life isn’t what most people recommend doing within a recipe blog post, but I’ve decided I don’t really care. I’m all about sharing my life stories with you guys!

I was also so excited to see so many of you commenting. Summer typically is a very slow time for the online/digital world, but it really excites me to see so many of you still reading away and commenting. I absolutely LOVE hearing from you guys and your kind words, feedback, and even (constructive) criticism, are what keep me energized and excited to share new content with you guys every single day.

So long story, short, thanks so much for reading and hanging out with me everyday! Hope you guys feel like we are friends cooking together in the kitchen…

Speaking of which, I finally posted my first IGTV video and now we can totally can be cooking together in the kitchen. Well kind of!

I made my favorite Blueberry Chamomile Galette and had a lot of fun putting it together…but I’m not going to lie, being on camera is hard, but in a weird way, I kind of love it too. It’s definitely difficult to watch myself though. Like I just can’t do it. Thank God I don’t have to edit these or I would delete everything.

This is just the first video I’ve done, and I am filming solo while using my iPhone, so it’s for sure not perfect, but then nothing in life is perfect! That said, hoping to improve the quality of the videos now that Kai is in town to film!

Anyway, let me know what you guys think and what type of video content you would love to see!

Garlic Butter Creamed Corn Chicken

OK. Garlic. Butter. Creamed Corn. Chicken.

Here are all the delicious details.

Since it’s summer and it’s super hot, I wanted to create a recipe that was quick, simple, easy, required no oven, but was still delicious. That is this chicken.

It all starts with crisping up some bacon in a large skillet. The bacon is our first layer of flavor here, and while you can choose to leave it out if you prefer, I do think it adds so much flavor and pairs perfectly with the sweet corn. It’s up to you but…

I’d use the bacon.

Once the bacon is crisp, you’ll sear the chicken, then cook the corn with some butter, garlic, and herbs until it’s golden and smelling delish. Add a little white wine and simmer that all together until the chicken is cooked through.

Finish things off with some cream, some cheese, and fresh basil, and dinner is complete.

You see?

Cozy, summer comfort food!

I really could not love this skillet dinner more. It’s simple, but yet so full of flavors that everyone really enjoys. I love serving this chicken over steamed quinoa for a healthy, protein packed grain, but brown or white rice is equally delicious. Make a side salad or some grilled veggies and you’ll have the perfect simple summer dinner.

SO GOOD. I know I say this every single day, but this recipe really is good. It’s one of those recipes that you’ll crave time and time again. Plus the sauce kind of just melts in your mouth. YUM!

  • 1. Rub the chicken all over with 1 tablespoon olive oil, thyme, and season generously with salt and pepper. Sprinkle the flour evenly over the chicken and toss to coat, adding more flour if needed to cover the chicken.
    2. Heat a large skillet over medium high heat and cook the bacon until crisp. Remove the bacon from the pan and drain onto paper towels.
    3. Add the chicken to the pan and sear on both sides until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan. 
    4. Add the remaining 1 tablespoon olive oil. When the oil shimmers, add the onion and cook until fragrant, about 5 minutes. Add the butter, corn, garlic, and red pepper flakes. Cook another 5 minutes or until the corn is golden. 
    5. Reduce the heat to medium low and pour in the wine and 1/2 cup water. Add the chicken back to the skillet and bring to a simmer over medium heat. Simmer the chicken for 10-15 minutes until cooked through. Stir in the heavy cream and parmesan, cook another few minutes until warmed through. Remove from the heat and top with bacon.
    5. Serve the chicken topped with fresh thyme and basil. Enjoy!

    1. Hey Abby,
      If your chicken breasts are pretty large then yes go ahead and cut them in half. I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xT

    I made this tonight and it was amazing! I used coconut milk for cream and ghee for butter. I also skipped the parmesan, but I added 2 jalapenos! Sooo good will make again. Thank you!

    This turned out delicious! I was a little skeptical at first (sorry!) since the corn sauce/broth didn’t turn out thick, like I was expecting. To be fair, the photos don’t show it thick. Serving it with rice since helps soak up the thin but delicious broth. I subbed chicken broth for the wine, since my kids don’t like the flavor. I love thyme and that flavor really got infused throughout the dish. My chicken didn’t get nice and brown and crispy like yours – probably because my pan was too crowded. If I make it again I might have to use a bigger pan or do the chicken in two batches. Tasty!

    Thank you for this – I’m in between and cooking in a stove top galley. It’s a treat to have discovered this stellar chix recipe. Corn on the cob is excellent right now, but I’ll be making this through the winter months as well.
    Best best,

  4. This is a favorite! Well…. we have lots of favorites from your collection. This one is in the top 10 for summer recipes! Although we do have it anytime of the year!

    I chose to make this to use up some farmer’s market corn and it didn’t disappoint. I used sage instead of thyme (because that’s what was in my garden), rosé instead of white wine (because that’s what was open in my fridge), and doubled the garlic (because you always should) and it was delicious! Make sure to simmer uncovered in step 5 – mine took a little longer than 15 minutes to simmer the liquid off. If you don’t do that it will be too runny.

    Very tasty, comforting summer recipe, and a great one to play with seasonings/toppings based on what you have on hand!

    just finished making this. i used a kittle more bacon, because my corn was super sweet, and i wanted to offset it. i noticed on your other recipe using a skillet i seen limes and paprika in that meal. mine turned out pretty good, but only because i have trouble tasting and smelling. these two symptoms left over from having covid 2 years ago, but my son said it was damn good and said make it again

    I really wanted to love this. Maybe I did something wrong? The chicken (I bought organic, air chilled chicken breasts) was tasteless. Which seems odd with all of the flavors from multiple ingredients the recipe calls for. I followed the recipe exactly and I am an experienced cook. My husband actually said, “Don’t make this again.” I’m so sad to have spent so much money and time preparing something I’m going to throw away. I realize everyone has different tastes but this was really just not good. I’m going over the recipe and trying to think of how I could have messed it up but I don’t think I did. Sorry but wanted to be honest.

    1. Hey! Thank you so much for trying out the recipe, I’m really sorry it didn’t out, I feel so bad that you spent time and money to make this recipe and it didn’t turn out for you! Thank you for letting me know, I apologize again!

    I saw this recipe on Instagram and decided to give it a try! “Garlic Butter Creamed Corn Chicken”- what’s not to like?? It did not disappoint! Exactly as she described “summer comfort” dinner. I followed the directions and measurements in the recipe, and everything was spot on!
