Slow Cooker Chicken-Corn Chowder

It's beginning to cool off outside, a perfect time for soups and chowders. One of my favorites is Slow Cooker Chicken-Corn Chowder. It's quick , easy, and delicious.

                     Slow Cooker Chicken-Corn Chowder

1 chicken breast, medium diced
1 cup frozen whole kernel corn
2 medium potatoes, peeled and small diced
1/4 cup small diced white onion
1 can cream of chicken soup
2 cups chicken stock
1/2 cup heavy cream
2 Anaheim peppers, small diced
1 tsp salt
1/4 tsp pepper
1/4 tsp dried thyme
1/4 tsp dried basil

Add chicken, corn, potatoes, soup, stock, peppers, and onion to slow cooker. Add only HALF of salt, pepper and spices. retain other half for later. Set to Low and cook 4 hours. Add cream and remainder of spices and cook 1 hour longer.

(Anaheim peppers are not hot, but flavorful. I add 2-3 shakes of hot sauce or a dash of cayenne pepper for additional heat.)
