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…

Garlic Butter Creamed Corn Chicken with spoon and extra sauce

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 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
  • 2 tablespoons extra virgin olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon fresh chopped thyme, plus more for serving
  • kosher salt and pepper
  • 1/4 cup all-purpose flour
  • 4 slices thick cut bacon, chopped
  • 1 small yellow onion, chopped
  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 4 ears corn, kernels removed from cob
  • 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
  • 1 teaspoon crushed red pepper flakes
  • 3/4 cup dry white wine, such as Pinot Grigio or Sauvignon Blanc
  • 1/2 cup heavy cream, canned full fat coconut milk, or whole milk
  • 1/2 cup grated parmesan or Asiago cheese
  • fresh basil


  • 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. This is probably not the same, but can I use “white wine vinegar” in place of the white wine?

    1. Hi Stacy,
      Definitely not:) You could use chicken or veggie broth in place of the white wine. Please let me know if you have any other questions, I hope you love the recipe! xTieghan

    1. Hi Beth,
      Awesome!! Thanks so much for sharing your feedback, I love to hear that this recipe was enjoyed! xx

  2. I love skillet recipes and I will be making this again. I had all the ingredients in my house so that was nice. I did not do the bacon and I added some fresh mushrooms with the corn to cook. I also used frozen corn. 5 star recipe.

    1. Hey Holly,
      Thanks so much for making this recipe, I am so glad it was enjoyed!! Have the best week:) xTieghan

  3. Can I replace the cream and corn with creamed corn I have at home? Don’t have time to go to the store today 😅

    1. Hi Camille,
      Sure, I bet that would work well for you. I hope you love the recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    This was such an awesome recipe. Tasted great and not hard to make. I love all the HBH recipes but this one is by far my favourite. I was never a fan of cooking before, but now I look forward to weekly meal preps with recipes like this!

  5. 5 stars
    This was outstanding! I used four chicken thighs and a bag of white frozen corn (which I thawed and drained). I’d never used white corn before, but it’s what was at the store at the time. It made a very sweet dish but so delicious! I didn’t make the bacon bits but did use bacon grease to brown the chicken and cook the onions and have it all great flavor. We had it over cubed roasted potatoes. I’ll definitely be adding it to my recipe book!

  6. Hi! Do you think I could make this recipe earlier in the day and put in crock pot on warm? For Christmas Eve we will go to church and I need food to be done already when we come back. Thank you!

    1. Hi Rachel,
      Sure, that should work well for you! I hope you love this recipe, please let me know if you give it a try! xTieghan

    This recipe was awesome! I made it for all my roomates for supper and they all raved about it! Thanks for the awesome recipe that I will be adding to my recipe box!

    Made this recipe last night for dinner using chicken thighs-it was delicious! We loved it. Loving all your recipes I’ve tried so far! You’ve gotten me excited about cooking different things- thank you! 😊

  9. This recipe is AWESOME!! I wouldn’t change a single thing! Made it for a huge family dinner and it was a hit all around! Definitely will be making this again!

      1. 5 stars
        Very yummy!! This goes perfect with a side of stuffing. I was out of bacon but it was still delicious without. I was also out of white wine so I used 1 tablespoon of lemon juice and 1/2 cup of chicken broth. It came out so good!!

        1. Hi Ashley,
          Awesome!! I am thrilled to hear this recipe was enjoyed, thanks so much for making it! Happy Holidays!💥 xT

    This dish was delicious – I used 2 large ears of corn and it was plenty. Also added sliced mushrooms. It was a bit time consuming with chopping and slicing the kernels off the corn cob but worth it! Don’t skip the wine!

  11. 5 stars
    Perfect way to use up some herbs from the garden! So much flavor packed into this dish. Served it with a big salad and it was a hit (even though my corn was very sad to begin with!).

  12. This is absolutely delightful. I added sweet green peas and cherry tomatoes at the end and served over zucchini noodles. One of my new favourite meals. 10/10

  13. First off, I’d like to tell you how much your an inspiration, and how everyday I look through your recipes to find the perfect dinner! I have gifted your cookbooks and made many of your recipes; everything is absolutely to die for! I have made this recipe twice now, I will admit, this is the only recipe that ends up seeming more oily than what it’s supposed to. Regardless, it is still amazing, but any recommendations on how to correct this? I am using chicken thighs, gluten free flower, and start by frying in the bacon grease. I add a touch of oil once everything from the bacon has been used up; is this what could be causing a slight oily outcome?

    P.S… I just love you overall and am inspired everyday. I cooked your pesto caprese chicken for friends and family last week. This recipe tonight. And plan on making your spinach artichoke salmon tomorrow! Keep ‘em coming, you are my biggest meal inspiration to date!

    1. Hey Talia,
      Thanks for making the recipe, the additional oil and use of chicken thighs are definitely why you are getting so much oil. I would try chicken breasts and skipping the additional oil next time. I hope this helps! xTieghan
