  1. Step 1

    Gather the ingredients.
  2. Step 2

    Choose the Instant Pot sauté button. When the display reads "hot," add the diced bacon. Cook the bacon, stirring, for about 4 minutes, or until it is browned and crisp. Remove about half of the bacon to paper towels to drain.
  3. Step 3

    Add the chopped onion, celery, and garlic to the pot and sauté for 2 minutes.
  4. Step 4

    Add the potatoes, corn, chicken stock, salt, and pepper. Stir the mixture, scraping up any browned bits on the bottom of the pot. Cancel the sauté function.
  5. Step 5

    Select the pressure cook or manual button (high pressure) and ensure the pot's steam release valve is in the sealing position. Set the timer for 8 minutes. When the time is up, let the pressure come down naturally for 10 minutes and then release the remaining pressure and remove the lid.
  6. Step 6

    Combine the half-and-half and cornstarch in a bowl and whisk until smooth. Add the mixture to the pot along with the parsley and choose the sauté button. Cook, stirring frequently, until the chowder is thickened. Taste and adjust the seasonings, as needed.
  7. Step 7

    Serve the chowder in bowls garnished with the remaining bacon. If desired, sprinkle green onions or cheese over each serving.
