What You'll Need
4 slices bacon
1 medium sweet onion, coarsely chopped (about 1 cup)
2 cloves garlic, minced
6 cups Swanson® Chicken Broth or Swanson® Certified Organic Chicken Broth or Swanson® Natural Goodness® Chicken Broth
2 teaspoons seafood seasoning
7 red potatoes or fingerling potatoes, cut into 1-inch pieces (about 2 cups)
2 cups frozen whole kernel corn
1 container (8 ounces) pasteurized refrigerated lump crabmeat
1/2 cup heavy cream
Cook the bacon in a 4-quart saucepan over medium-high heat for 5 minutes or until crisp. Remove the bacon from the saucepan and drain on paper towels. Pour off all but 2 tablespoons drippings from the saucepan.
Reduce the heat to medium. Add the onion and garlic to the saucepan and cook until the onion is tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir the broth, seafood seasoning, potatoes and corn in the saucepan. Heat to a boil. Reduce the heat to low. Cook for 15 minutes or until the potatoes are tender, stirring occasionally.
Stir in the crabmeat and heavy cream and cook for 5 minutes or until the mixture is hot and bubbling. Divide the chowder among 6 bowls. Top each with about 1 tablespoon bacon.
