Paula Deen’s Slow Cooker Potato Soup

1 bag (30 oz) frozen hash-brown potatoes
2 cans (14 oz ea) chicken broth
1 can (10.75 oz) cream of chicken soup
1/2 C chopped onion
1/3 tsp ground black pepper
1 pkg (8 oz) cream cheese, softened

Optional Garnish: minced green onion, shredded Cheddar and bacon


In a slow cooker, combine potatoes, broth, soup, onion, and pepper. Cover, and cook on low for 5 hours.

Stir in cream cheese, cook 30 minutes, stirring occasionally, until combined.

Garnish with green onion, and/or Cheddar and bacon if desired.

I’ve always made homemade potato soup using my mom’s recipe. This time I thought I’d look for a recipe online and see what I could find. I found this recipe by Paula Deen and thought I’d try it.

I wondered how the ingredients would work since I’ve never used cream cheese, chicken broth, or cream of chicken soup. It was easier than easy to make, and the ingredients didn’t cost much.

The soup was good, but I think I’ll stick with my mom’s recipe most of the time, and use this for when I’m not feeling like peeling a bunch of potatoes.

As you can see, I took the photo without the optional garnishes. It was fine without them, but they do add a bit more flavor.

  1. Vicki, I am interested in the potato soup recipe you usually make, your mom’s. I’ll bet that tastes incredible!

  2. While this looks nice, I am more interested in your mom’s recipe. Those are from fresh potatoes, right?

  3. Yes, you should post your mom’s recipe one day! I love slow cooker soups but never tried a Paula Deen version

  4. Yes! Post your mom’s! This sure looks easy

  5. I’d love to know your mom’s recipe!

  6. Too funny, there seems to be a consensus here. We want your mom’s recipe!

  7. I want your mom’s recipe too! I’ve made this soup a few times and it’s always popular but it’s not particularly exciting. Glad you enjoyed it even though it wasn’t a favorite.

  8. I’ve never heard of cream cheese in a soup either. I’m glad it was good.

  9. This looks so great for a cold day!

  10. Seems like you mom’s recipe should be the next weekend cooking post 😉
    This looks good for an easier alternative though.

  11. I’m on a soup kick myself. There’s nothing better for a winter’s day.

  12. Potato Soup is one of my favorites. I do like how easy this looks but I echo the rest of your commenters and would love to see your mom’s recipe someday. 😉 Thanks for sharing it with Souper Sundays this week too!
