- 5 / 5
This Buttery Creamed Corn Chicken is perfect when you want quick (under one hour), easy (uses just one pan) and delicious (fresh corn, chicken, thyme…say no more).
This is the ideal dinner for a weeknight summer meal with its fresh summer corn, creamy garlicky sauce, crisp bacon, fresh herbs and parmesan. Can’t go wrong with this baby!
Begin by rubbing olive oil, fresh thyme salt and pepper over the chicken breasts. Sprinkle the flour over and toss gently to be sure that you coat the chicken.
Crisp up the bacon pieces in a hot skillet and set aside. To the same skillet, sear the chicken breasts until both sides are golden brown and then remove from the pan.
Sauté onions in olive oil until they are fragrant. Add the butter, corn, garlic and red pepper flakes and cook for 5 minutes or so until the corn is golden. Pour in wine and water and add the chicken back into the skillet. Simmer until the chicken is cooked through, another 10-15 minutes.
Stir in the heavy cream and parmesan cheese and cook until it is warmed through, just a few more minutes. Top with the bacon.
To serve, add some extra fresh thyme and basil leaves and off you go, serving up another delicious meal!

Makes: 6 servings
Prep Time: 10 minutes
Bake Time: 30 minutes
Total Time: 40 minutes
- 1 & 1/2 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
- 2 tbsp extra virgin olive oil
- 1 tbsp 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 tbsp unsalted butter
- 4 ears corn, kernels removed from cob
- 2 cloves garlic, minced or grated
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes, optional
- 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
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.
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.
Add the chicken to the pan and sear on both sides until golden, about 5 minutes per side. Remove the chicken from the pan.
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.
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.
Serve the chicken topped with fresh thyme and basil. Enjoy!
