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!

Ingredients:

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

Directions:
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!

    That sounds good, I like the addition of the cream cheese!

  2. I make chicken soup every few weeks and freeze containers to use whenever we have the urge. I have to use it with this recipe.

    It looks like there are potatoes in the soup. Are they potatoes or maybe the cutlets cut up? If not potatoes, that sounds like a nice addition unless your mixed veggies have potatoes.

    Regardless, this sounds like a hit in the making. Thanks.

    Yes, there are diced red potatoes in this soup. I think they were a nice addition! They made the soup more hearty and filling. I hope you enjoy it!
