This one-skillet dinner is creamy, sweet, salty and spicy all at once! The fresh corn provides a burst of sweetness, pairing perfectly with the savory chicken and the spice of the jalapeños. We love this summer dish!

In a skillet over medium heat, cook the bacon until crisp. Remove to a paper towel-lined plate to drain.

For easier cleanup, place the top of a cob into the hole of a bundt pan. Run your knife down the cob to cut the corn off. The corn will land in the bundt pan.

5 Jalapeno Creamed Corn Chicken

Pour out all of the grease into a heatproof dish, then pour 2 tablespoons back into the skillet. Heat the grease over medium-high heat, then add the onion, garlic, minced jalapeño, and ¼ teaspoon salt. Cook for 3-4 minutes, until onion is soft. Turn heat up to high, then stir in the corn. Let cook, untouched, for 3-4 minutes, until corn begins to pop and gets charred.

Turn the heat back down to medium-high, then pour in the chicken broth, scraping the bottom of the pan to loosen any browned bits. Add the chicken back to the skillet, and simmer for 15-20 minutes, until chicken registers 175°F on an instant read thermometer. Stir in the half and half and cheese.
