Heat oil in a 4.5-litre (18-cup) slow cooker on sear (HIGH) setting; cook onion, bacon, celery, thyme and bay leaves, stirring, for 5 minutes or until vegetables soften. Add chicken, corn cobs, potato and stock. Cook, covered, on low, for 8 hours.


Carefully remove chicken and corn from cooker. Shred chicken coarsely using two forks; discard skin and bones. Using a small sharp knife, cut kernels from corn cobs. Discard cobs.


Stir milk and cornflour in a small bowl until combined. Return chicken and corn to cooker with cornflour mixture. Increase heat to reduce setting on low; simmer, uncovered, for 10 minutes or until chowder thickens. Season to taste.


Serve chowder sprinkled with fresh chives. Accompany with crackers or grilled crusty bread.
