Wow oh my we loved this soup/stew. I did tweak to ingredients I had on hand, but wow. Did I say that twice? Well it was sure worth the double wow. I only had 1 cream of potato soup can, so I used one cream of celery. Didn't have any fresh celery, so I thought that would be my best substitution. Like others, I did not brown the chicken. I used 2 large chicken breasts that I seasoned with season salt and pepper and placed them in the bottom of the crockpot. Added the additional ingredients and let it go. At 4 hours, I pulled out the chicken breasts and diced into small chunks and put it back in the crockpot. Did the half and half. (1/4 cup cream and 1/4 cup skim milk since I didn't have half and half at home). I also added some mushrooms at the same time as the peas. On the side I cooked some elbow noodles and the family could choose if they wanted to use them or not. I half to admit I was a bit intimidated with the dill. I have used dill in some mediterrianan dishes, but not with anything else. I am really glad that I did use it. It really added a wonderful flavor. Thank you so much for sharing your recipe. It is a keeper.1Reply
We loved this soup! Like a previous reviewer, I threw the chicken in uncooked from the beginning. I let it cook about five hours on low then took the chicken out and shredded it with two forks, put it back in, and then added the peas and half and half for another 30 minutes. This is a definite repeat for us! Thanks!1Reply
