Can you put raw potatoes in the crock pot?
Yep! For this slow cooker potato soup recipe, I use the prepared raw hashbrown potatoes that are cubed but you can also use potatoes that you peel and dice your self.
What is the thickener in potato soup?
Potatoes have natural starch that is released when they cook. That starch helps thicken the soup! The cream cheese and cream of chicken soup also help thicken it.
How long do leftovers keep?
Store the leftover potato soup in an airtight container in the refrigerator for up to three to four days. If the soup is too thick when you reheat it, add more chicken broth or even a little milk to thin it.
