    Crock pot chicken and vegetable chowder

    This is so delicious with fresh vegetables and chunks of chicken! Really comforting taste! I like to serve this with a salad and fresh warm bread or biscuits.

    Ingredients
    1 large onion; chopped
    8 ounces fresh mushrooms; sliced
    2 large cloves garlic; minced
    1/4 cup unsalted butter
    1/4 cup flour
    3-4 large boneless, skinless, chicken breasts; cut into bite-size pieces
    1 cup thinly sliced carrots
    1 cup each fresh cauliflower and broccoli florets; can use frozen
    1 cup fresh, frozen, or canned corn
    6 cups home-made chicken stock, or low-sodium stock
    1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
    1/3 cup half and half
    salt and pepper to taste

    1.Melt butter in skillet. Add onions, mushrooms, and garlic, saute over medium-high heat until starting to turn brown.
    2. Add flour and stir constantly, until flour is absorbed into veggies. Dump into crock-pot.
    3. Add chicken pieces, carrots, cauliflower, broccoli, corn, and cover with stock.
    4. Add thyme; cover and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours.
    5. The last 15 minutes of cooking add half and half and salt and pepper to taste.
    If this needs to be a little thicker, add a little flour and water mixed together and stir in to desired thickness.

    This sounds so delicious. And to be able to use a crock pot is a blessing! Thanks for what I'm cooking tomorrow for dinner.
