1 large (1 cup) onion, chopped

1 (16-ounce) package frozen mixed vegetables

2 (14-ounce) cans chicken broth

1 1/2 teaspoons dried marjoram leaves

2 teaspoons garlic salt

1/2 teaspoon dried thyme leaves

1/2 teaspoon pepper

1 cup Land O Lakes® Half & Half

2 tablespoons cornstarch

1 (8-ounce) (1 cup) container onion and chive-flavored cream cheese, softened

Topping

2 tablespoons Land O Lakes® Butter

1/2 cup dried bread crumbs

How to make

  1. STEP 1

    Combine all chowder ingredients except half & half, cornstarch and cream cheese in 5-quart slow cooker. Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6-8 hours, or High heat setting 4-5 hours or until potatoes are tender.

  2. STEP 2

    During last cooking hour, combine half & half and cornstarch in bowl until smooth; gradually stir into chicken mixture. Cover; cook on High heat setting until mixture is thickened.

  3. STEP 3

    Melt butter in 1-quart saucepan until sizzling; add bread crumbs. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 4-5 minutes or until golden brown. Set aside.

  4. STEP 4

    Just before serving, stir cream cheese into chowder until melted. Ladle into individual serving bowls. Sprinkle each serving with 1 tablespoon topping.

Tip #1

- To assure food is cooked evenly and done in the time range listed in recipe, it’s important to cut ingredients the size indicated in recipe. Be sure not to peek during slow cooking, as each time the cover is removed, enough heat is lost to add 10-15 minutes to total cooking time.

This is one of my families favorites. We had a party with just soups and stews and so many people loved it they always ask for the recipe. So yummy!

This was ok. We rate it 6 out 10. I think if I had browned up some bacon, then browned the chicken in that pan, then softened up the onions in that same pan, it has potential.

I followed the recipe exactly and it had NO taste whatsoever.It took me an hour adding different seasonings (too many to mention ) to make it decent ..Don't waste your time with this.

Quite expensive for the cost of all the ingredients and disappointing in taste. It lacked something.
