Servings 6 people


  • 32 oz frozen cubed potatoes
  • ½ small onion, diced
  • 10.5 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 lb smoked sausage, sliced and halved
  • 1 cup milk
  • 4 cups chicken broth
  • 1 ½ cups shredded sharp cheddar cheese
  • ½ cup water
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • salt and pepper, to taste


  • In a slow cooker, mix together potatoes, soup, onion, and cheese. Add the sausage and stir in the milk and broth.
  • Cook 6 hours on low. Whisk together water and flour till smooth and pour into the soup. Cover and cook an additional 20 minutes to allow the soup to thicken slightly. 
  • Serve hot and with crackers. 


You may add additional flour and water to make a larger amount of the slurry if you prefer a thick soup. This amount will be slightly thick, but still closer to a soup consistency than a chowder.
