  1. Heat oven to 200C/180C fan/gas 6. Mix together the butter, garlic and half the flat-leaf parsley, then spread the mix between diagonal cuts in the baguette. Wrap the bread in foil and set to one side.
  2. Heat the oil in a large pan over a medium heat. Fry the onion and bacon for about 5 mins until softened, then add the potato and cook for another 5 mins. Meanwhile, put the garlic bread in the oven and cook for 15 mins, opening the foil for the last 5 mins to brown.
  3. Stir the flour into the bacon and potato, and cook for a couple of mins, then gradually add the milk and stock. Bring to the boil, then reduce the heat and simmer gently for 10-15 mins until the potato is almost cooked. Add the haddock and sweetcorn to the pan, and simmer for a further 5 mins. Stir the remaining parsley into the chowder and serve alongside the garlic bread.

Just made this without the garlic bread. Very easy, very tasty and me and my children loved it.

I've been making a version of this for years and it's delicious. I always include two or three stalks of finely sliced celery, a teaspoon of mild curry powder and two cloves of crushed garlic and sweat those along with the onions. I use a can of low fat evaporated milk and an extra can of creamed corn in place of the fresh milk. The end result is thick, creamy and tastes quite decadent but it's actually very good for you. Sometimes I substitute the fish for leftover cooked chicken and that works equally well.

A lovely winter warmer! Easy recipe and super easy. Used shop bought garlic bread

The chowder is absolutely delicious, the garlic bread however is a different story. Very time consuming, quite fiddly, and not as good as shop bought.
