What to do:

1. Put potatoes & onion in crock-pot after peeling and chopping.
2. Combine the cream cheese, chicken broth, cream of chicken soup & the pepper. Add this mix to the crock-pot.
3. Cover & cook on LOW for 8-10 hours or on HIGH for 4-5 hours.
4. After cooking time, mash the potatoes if you want the soup to be thicker.
5. Ladle into bowls and garnish!

This recipe made a lot for our family. We served it with sausage roll-ups. I was able to take half of this recipe and freeze it for another day. It smelled wonderful while cooking and received good reviews from the entire family, especially with the garnishes.

How big is your crock pot? I'm not sure 5 pounds would fit in my big oval one, so I thought I'd see how big yours was before I decide to half your recipe. Thanks!

I made this once before. It made a lot! Do you add the water for the cream of chix, or just add the concentrate alone?

SpartanGirlWendy, I would use a 6 quart crock pot or bigger.

Allie, no you do not need to add water. The chicken broth will take care of that. :) Good question.
