Easy Instant Pot(R) Corn Chowder Recipe

Easy Instant Pot® Corn Chowder


This easy corn chowder cooks in an Instant Pot(R) in under 15 minutes. Using the Saute function helps it come to pressure faster and cuts down on overall cook time.


  • 1 medium yellow onion, chopped
  • 1 tablespoon butter
  • 2 cups frozen corn
  • 2 cups chicken broth
  • 1 (12 fluid ounce) can evaporated milk
  • ½ cup instant potato flakes
  • ½ teaspoon dried thyme
  • ½ teaspoon minced garlic
  • ½ teaspoon dried chives
  • salt and ground black pepper to taste


  1. Turn on a multi-functional pressure cooker (such as Instant Pot®) and select Saute function. Add onion and butter to the hot pot; cook and stir until onion is lightly browned, about 5 minutes. Add corn and chicken broth. Turn off Saute function.
  2. Close and lock the lid. Select high pressure according to manufacturer's instructions; set timer for 5 minutes. Allow 10 to 15 minutes for pressure to build.
  3. Release pressure carefully using the quick-release method according to manufacturer's instructions, about 5 minutes. Unlock and remove the lid. Carefully remove lid and add evaporated milk, potato flakes, thyme, garlic, chives, salt, and pepper; stir to combine. Serve immediately.
