Slow Cooker Chicken Corn Chowder

Okay, I haven't been on here in two years and have not really had any desire to blog, but I needed a place to publish a recipe and what better place than here, right? 

This is my family's favourite winter soup.  It's yummy and so filling.

2 tbsp butter
1 1/2 lbs chicken cut into cubes

2 cans cream of potato soup (I usually buy this at Loblaws as it can be hard to find)
2 cups frozen corn
1 1/2 cups chicken broth
2 small onions diced
2 ribs celery sliced
2 small carrots sliced
1 tsp dry dill weed
2 potatoes peeled and diced

1/2 cup half & half

1. Fry chicken in melted butter (season as desired) then set aside
2. Combine soup & broth in slow cooker (I use a whisk so not to have any clumps)
3. Add the rest of the ingredients (including chicken) except cream
4. Cook on low for 6 - 8 hours
5. Stir in cream and serve

*If you want a thicker soup, remove a cup of the liquid from the soup and combine it with a tbsp of corn starch.  Add it back into the soup and turn the slow cooker on high for the last hour.
