Recipe: Creamed Chicken and Corn Soup in the crock pot

This was a weird weather weekend, wasn’t it?  From bitter cold to warm and rainy.  Of course, lot of rain on top of a foot of snow and there is nowhere for the rain to go. What a mess.  It looked like pea soup in the afternoon on Saturday, too.


I had company for my Sunday bagel. My momma joined me after she got out of church.


Since it is going to be so busy for me for next few days, I wanted to prep some food. I made some crock pot soup. Always a good choice for busy times, right? Based on this recipe.

Creamed Chicken and Corn Soup


  • 1.5 pounds of boneless, skinless chicken thighs (a package of 6 is usually about 1.5 pounds)
  • 23 ounce can, aka the big one, of condensed chicken soup -(or  2 batches of homemade as per below)
  • 1 can (14 oz) of creamed corn
  • 1 cup frozen corn kernels
  • 1/2 chopped onion
  • 2 medium carrots, sliced
  • 2 cups of chicken or veggie broth

Add all ingredients to the slow cooker and cook on high for 5 hours. Break the chicken thighs into small pieces with a spatula (they should just fall apart) and serve.  If you want to use chicken breasts instead of thighs, put them in frozen so they don’t get dried out.

This is really good.  I guess that’s a good thing since I will eating this all week! The chicken thighs work really well in this recipe.

Nutritional info:  These stats reflect using the condensed soup recipe below and not canned, so your mileage may vary.  Based on 6 servings of soup, approximately 1-3/4 cups: 

Calories 358,  Fat 17 grams, Carbs 26 grams, Protein 26 grams, Fiber 2 grams.

Generally I don’t care for condensed soups and never have them on hand.  I came across a recipe on Pinterest and decided to make my own for a recipe at Christmas.  It worked, so I used it again here.

Homemade condensed soup base

  • 2 tablespoons butter
  • 3 tablespoons all-purpose flour
  • 1/2 cup low sodium chicken broth
  • 1/2 cup low-fat or fat free milk
  • salt and pepper to taste

In a small saucepan, melt the butter and add the flour.


Whisk for a few minutes to cook out the flour taste. Then gradually whisk in the broth.  I don’t add the milk yet because adding cold milk can lead to lumps.  Once you whisk in the broth and it is smooth, whisk in the milk.


Then cook over medium heat, stirring constantly,  for a couple minutes until very thick – like this:

Voila – This equals 1 can of condensed soup. You can do this with any flavors you want, too. (Please note this pan is a double batch since that is what I needed for the above recipe)

Here’s hoping the Broncos win the game today!  I did up my Broncos manicure:

I used the head of a flat pin to make the dots of polish.  Worked pretty well, too.

Now I’m eating this soup and watching the game. Come on Broncos!

    I would think that your homemade version of condensed soup has got to be healthier than the canned type.

    I was too busy to watch football yesterday but the first thing I did when I finally sat down was go online to see if your Broncos won! Did I ever tell you Mr. Helen roots for them too (as long as they’re not playing the Giants)? He lived in Colorado for several years when he was in the Air Force and they became a favorite team.

    Pretty nails – and the Broncos won too!! We’re rooting for the same team now. 🙂

    I need to bookmark your condensed soup recipe. It’s hard to find one without funky ingredients and the organic stuff is majorly expensive!

    Yep, you’ve basically made a roux – I use something similar to make my macaroni and cheese. Looks delish! This morning on my way to work it was 40 degrees – last week as I was headed to the hospital to visit Tony, it was -20 – so crazy we can have a 60 degree flux in temperature in just a week!

    That soup sounds so good, especially when we have those bone chilling days.
    I’m SO ready for Spring. This weather is awful especially since it has been leaving so many ice patches on the roads. It’s dangerous to walk.

    Anything with creamed corn sounds good to me. One of my childhood favorites. I need to buy a can of that stuff again! And I like the tutorial on making your own soup base.

    Looks like a delicious soup.

    The weather on Saturday afternoon looks like the kind that’s perfect for staying in and watch some movies or TV shows.

    Are you watching Downton Abbey again? We are already done with this season. Again, I liked it, look forward to next season.

    That soup looked wonderful. I got the ingredients today and will make it soon. My husband and I do get tired of a soup if it makes a large pot, but I have a friend whose husband is near the end with cancer. I will take some to them.
