- Melt 3 tablespoons of butter in a large saucepan over medium high heat.

- Stir in flour and cook for a couple of minutes while stirring. The mixture will clump together.
- Stir in chicken broth until the flour mixture has dissolved.
- Stir in the milk.
- Put boneless, skinless chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. (Try canned chicken if you’re out of the skinless chicken breast. I haven’t used canned chicken for this recipe but it should work. Eliminate the salt in the recipe and note that the soup will have a different texture.)
- Top with corn, great northern beans, rotel tomatoes, and parsley
- Add the cream cheese on the top of the mixture. (mix into soup)
- Pour the broth over all of it and cook on high for 6-8 hours. After about 5 hours, cut the chicken into bite sized pieces and return to the Crock Pot.
- Add the cup of shredded cheese to the crockpot 1 hour before serving, stir it in until it melts completely.
- Garnish with sour cream, shredded cheese, and parsley or cilantro at serving
For The Instant Pot: Ready from start to finish in about an hour.
I love my instant pot pressure cooker and this soup is outstanding made this way.
If you are using frozen corn as I did this time, increase the amount of chicken broth by 1 cup. Garnish this soup with shredded cheese, chopped peppers, sour cream or cilantro as you prefer. Let us know when you make it in your pressure cooker and how this recipe works for you. We love the flavor! Diane
