Chunky Creamy Chicken Soup

I am a stay-at-home mom who relies on my slow cooker for fast, nutritious meals with minimal cleanup and prep time. I knew this recipe was a hit when I didn't have any leftovers and my husband asked me to make it again. —Nancy Clow, Mallorytown, Ontario

    I have made this soup, or should we call it a stew, 3 times now in the passed 6 wks. and we all LOVE it! I added a frozen bag of peas and carrots 20-30 minutes before done cooking along with the 1/2 and 1/2. I wondered if you can somehow not use canned cream of potato soup by adding potatoes to the beginning of cooking but then what about the creamy texture that the canned soup lends? (When you are paying nearly $2 a can, it gets pricey.) Any suggestions?

    I needed to improvise and use ingredients I had on hand bc I couldn’t get to the store but think my substitutions did not significantly change the outcome and we loved the soup. It was a bowl of comfort! I used a big bag of frozen mixed vegetables, cream of ckn soup, no celery and a block of cream cheese instead of the half and half. It tasted like chicken pot pie without a crust. Fortunately this recipe is very flexible which is wonderful for people who can’t always make a quick dash to the store to make a yummy sounding recipe.

    super good! I diced and crisped 4 bacon strips which I added at the end of cooking. Also, add 1 Tbsp Worcestershire sauce and subbed 1 can creamed corn for the frozen corn.

    I made this soup for the first time. I know I made a few mistakes, but I really did like what I got. Next time I will try to fix mistakes and try some Pensky spices. Mine still needed something, but while cooking the smell said I cannot wait. I will keep this recipe and thank you for it and thanks for all the people who wrote in and review. That help me alot.

    I made this soup and it was pretty good. However, I added some Penzey's Justice and Penzey's Seasoned Salt and that really gave it zip! I would probably only give it three and a half, but with these two additions it jumped to a five with exclamation points!

    The soup was easy to prepare. The texture was good, but I thought it was bland. I added extra carrots and celery, garlic salt, pepper and extra chicken broth. The kids really liked it.

    I tweaked this quite a lot, but was very happy with the result. I added an extra carrot, an extra celery stalk and more dill and fresh parsley. I a;so used all of the chicken broth and three quarters of a cup of half and half. Plus, I put a whole can of cream of mushroom soup in and added some more water. Used two pounds of chicken breast too. But it was easy to make and delicious and took little time. I'd definitely make this again.
