Corn and Chicken Chowder (Crockpot)


I love soup. I love it all year long, but the cooler temperatures make me want to have a pot simmering all the time. This chowder is one of our favorites. I'm not sure where I got the original recipe.




Ingredients:

Boneless, skinless chicken tenders or breasts. I used 10 chicken tenders for this batch, about 3 large breasts would be about the same amount of chicken.
1 cup chopped celery
1 cup chopped carrots (I used baby carrots for this, I was in a hurry)
2 cups frozen corn
2 cans cream of potato soup
1 ½ cups chicken broth
1 tsp. dried dill weed (optional)
½ cup half and half (you could use milk, it would lower the calories and still be good)




     Put everything except the half and half into the crock-pot in the order listed and stir gently (it won't be pretty). I put my chicken in frozen. My slow cooker has a 4 hour setting, and that is what I used. I would suggest 4-6 hours depending on the style and settings for your slow cooker. Just before you are ready to serve the soup, take 2 forks and pull the chicken apart into bite size pieces and stir in the half and half. Enjoy!
