Chicken And Corn Chowder

Well, we're bracing for another snow storm! You know when the weather forecasters talk about snow in "feet" rather than "inches" it's not a good sign! Another Lake Effect Snow Warning is in effect for our area from tomorrow night until Tuesday...or so.  But, I'm ready, I went to the grocery store and stocked up on the necessities and I have a list of snow day activities planned.  So bring it on Old Man Winter, we're ready for ya!
It's the perfect weather for our favorite Chicken and Corn Chowder recipe, so I thought I'd share with you as well.
This recipe is so easy and simple...and as an added bonus it cooks in the slowcooker! Easy, delicious, and time-saving...what more can you ask for?

2 Cups Lumpy Mashed Potatos (Yes, that's right's ok this time)
1 can (10-3/4 oz) Cream of Chicken Soup
1Cup diced chicken
1 can whole kernel corn
1 cup chicken broth
1/4 cup diced red bell pepper
1 can chopped mild green chiles
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/8 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon dried thyme
1 cup milk
Combine the soups, chicken, corn,potatos, chicken broth, bell pepper, chiles, salt, pepper and thyme in a 4- to 6- quart crockpot. Cover and cook on LOW for 4 to 5 hours. Add milk and cook for about 30 minutes longer, or until hot. Serves 4 to 6, and can easily be doubled for a larger crowd.
