Easy Slow-Cooker Potato Soup
When I ate this soup I couldn't believe how good it was for being so quick to prepare. She served it with these easy breadsticks, and I, of course, begged for both recipes. They have become staples at our house.
I will say that this recipe calls for a can of cream of chicken soup, which I rarely use, but I make an exception in the case of this soup. But you can always make your own homemade version, or use my favorite cream of chicken soup mix that I often use in recipes that call for canned cream of chicken soup.
Just a couple of quick tips –
Yes, it is absolutely necessary to boil the potatoes before adding them to the slow cooker. I learned the hard way that they will not get soft enough to eat before the rest of the ingredients are annihilated.
I have used both fresh minced onion and dried minced onion in this recipe. Both work well, so use what you have or prefer.
