Man, did I pick a good day to make this recipe. It has been raining ALL DAY, and I was so looking forward to coming home and heating a nice hearty bowl of this. This did not disappoint. It had a very familiar taste, like something I had had before, but I couldn’t place it. I definitely recommend giving this a try on a cold, rainy day like today!
2 boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1-inch cubes
8 small red potatoes, cut into 1-inch cubes
1 cup onion, diced
2 14 oz. cans chicken broth
1 16 oz. package frozen mixed vegetables
1 1/2 tsp. marjoram
1 tsp. garlic salt
1/2 tsp. thyme
1 cup half and half
2 tbsp. cornstarch
1 8 oz. container onion and chive-flavord cream cheese, softened
This makes a lot of food. I have a 6-quart crockpot, and it was about 3/4 full!
Combine chicken, potatoes, onion, broth, veggies and spices in crockpot. Stir well to combine. Cook on low for 6-8 hours.
At end of cook time, mix half and half and cornstarch together until smooth. Gradually stir into chicken mixture. Cover and cook on high for 15-30 minutes until thickened.
Just before serving, stir in cream cheese until melted. Enjoy!
