Why We Love This

There’s nothing better than sharing food with family, and it’s even better when you can enjoy it with them rather than slaving away in the kitchen the whole time.

We love being able to quickly throw this cob together without thinking too much – exactly how we like it!

What is Chicken and Corn Cob Loaf?

A riff on the classic spinach cob loaf, we thought it was time to try it with chicken and corn. They make such a good combo together and pair well with the sour cream and cheese. You’ll usually find a cob loaf at a party, so why not show up to impress with a completely new flavour!

What You’ll Need

  • Rotisserie Chicken – We love getting a couple of quarter wing sections from our local chicken shop (approximately 2 chicken breasts worth). You can also just poach your own chicken breasts and shred them or sub the chicken out completely for tuna, and make it a tuna mornay style cob instead.
  • Sour Cream – The base that makes a really good cob dip. Start with this, and you’ll be well on your way to amazing, creamy flavour. It’s fine to use light sour cream, or even sub with Greek yoghurt, cottage cheese or ricotta for a lighter finish. For a heavier, cheesier finish, sub with cream cheese.
  • Chicken and Corn Soup – We get the condensed cream of chicken and corn soup, if you want a different flavour you can used any “cream of” condensed soup range – mushroom, creamed corn, celery etc. They’ll all taste great and give it a slightly different flavour profile each time.
  • Onion and Garlic Powder – Instead of using chicken stock powder, we use these two power houses for a bigger flavour punch!
  • Corn – Just a regular ol’ can a corn for this. Sub with frozen or cook your own and strip off the cob to pop in. You could even char it first to make it a little fancy like we did for our Mexican mini cob loaf rolls.
  • Chives – Fresh chives work best, and adding a little green just makes it look healthier – ha! Who are we kidding.
  • Cheese – Grated cheese melts quicker here, we used tasty cheese but you can also use cheddar or a “cheese melt mix” if it’s easiest. Whatever you prefer!
Ingredients laid out to make chicken and corn cob loaf.

How to Make Chicken and Corn Cob Loaf

First, gather your ingredients: See recipe card below for measurements.

  1. Slice around 2 cm / 1 inch off the top of the cob loaf and remove the soft bread inside. Break it up into chunky pieces, and chop up the lid into chunks as well. Place the hollowed out cob loaf on a large serving platter with the bread pieces scattered around the outside.
  2. Add the cream of chicken and corn soupsour creamgarlic powder and onion powder into a large saucepan. Stir over low heat until the soup and sour cream have softened and warmed through. Add the tasty cheese and stir until fully melted into the dip.
  1. Next, add the shredded rotisserie chicken and corn kernels, stirring until evenly mixed through.
  2. Once warmed through, pour filling into the cob loaf. Garnish with chives and serve.

Wandercook’s Tips

  • Heat Slowly – You don’t need super high heat for this dip, you want to gently rise the temperature so you don’t boil the sour cream etc.
  • Bread Insides – When hollowing out the bread, tear the inside pieces large enough so you can dip them easily. If they’re too small, you’ll end up with a mess on your hands!

Storage, Freezing & Reheating

Best eaten fresh, but will keep 1-2 days in the fridge. We don’t recommend freezing.

If you can’t get through the whole lot, we recommend covering with aluminium foil, then reheat covered in the foil in either the oven or air-fryer for 5-10 minutes at 200°C / 400°F or until heated up to your liking. Give the dip a quick mix before serving to make sure the heat spreads evenly.

FAQs

Can I use different bread if I don’t want to use a cob loaf?

You can! As long as it’s nice and crusty on the outside, and soft on the inside (so you can pull the bread out), you should be able to try out different bread types and shapes. We’ve even used regular dinner rolls for individual mini cob loafs before!

What if there isn’t enough internal bread pieces for dipping?

We always like to serve it with extra dipping options, thinking a sliced baguette, crackers or even veggie sticks work well.

  • Serve alongside other cob loaf dips if you’re entertaining a large crowd. Also goes well alongside other party food such as spinach and cheese triangles, mini meat pies and sausage rolls!

  • Heat Slowly – You don’t need super high heat for this dip, you want to gently rise the temperature so you don’t boil the sour cream etc.
