Table of Contents


  • Slow cooker (linked below)
  • Cutting board (linked below)
  • measuring cups (linked below)
  • Ladle (linked below)


  • 1 1/2 pounds chicken breast (or 1 large breast)
  • 1 cup diced onion
  • 1/2 cup diced celery
  • 1/2 cup thinly sliced carrots
  • 3 cups cubed potatoes
  • 1 1/2 cups whole corn kernels (or 15.25 oz.)
  • 2 chicken bouillon cubes
  • 2 10.5 oz. cream of chicken soups *see note.
  • 2 1/2 –3 cups chicken broth *see note
  • 1 1/2 cups frozen peas (optional)
  • 12 oz. velveeta cheese
  • salt and pepper to taste


  • Place the chicken breast on the bottom of a 6-7 quart slow cooker, then dump in the vegetables around the chicken breast. Season the chicken breast with salt and pepper, then add the chicken bouillon cubes.
  • Dump the cream of chicken soups and chicken broth into the slow cooker, spreading over the potatoes to ensure they are covered in liquid. Cover the crockpot and cook the soup on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 3-4 hours until the veggies are softened and the chicken breast is fully cooked through (165 Fahrenheit).
  • During the last hour of slow cooking, add the frozen peas and cubed Velveeta cheese to the slow cooker. Once the chicken breast is cooked through, remove from the crockpot and shred with a fork. Return the shredded chicken breast to the crockpot and stir the soup to dissolve the Velveeta into the soup.
  • Once the Velveeta has melted into the soup and the peas are cooked through, additional salt and pepper can be added to taste if needed. Allow the soup to cool slightly, then enjoy!


If you do not have Velveeta cheese on hand, you can also stir a cup or more of shredded cheddar cheese into the soup. Add to taste.

Additional chicken broth can be added to thin the soup if it is too thick for your preference after the Velveeta cheese is added.

Cream of celery soup would make a good substitute for the cream of chicken soup.
