"This recipe is great to use up leftover ham from holiday dinners. It is warm and hearty and is very easy to make in your slow cooker. I love that the potatoes stay a nice, firm texture and yet are perfectly done. This chowder goes great with some cheesy biscuits or crescent rolls right out of the oven!" — JenLove198

Made this last night and everyone loved it. I did have to change a few things. I was out of Cream of Chicken but had Cream of Potato also didnt use corn and didn't add any extra salt most of the ingredients had enough of there own. Just had the leftovers for lunch and it was even better.
Very good flavor and the right ingredients. No need to add salt as the ham has plenty. I would have liked the base to be thicker so next time I may take the top off the pot for the last hour or so. Served with toasted cheese sandwispches, my husband loved it and didn't detect it was a light recipe.
This is a good recipe. I cut the potatoes quite small because I wanted to be sure that they were cooked really well. I cooked the soup for the full amount of time and the potatoes were definitely not overcooked. Next time I would cook it just a little bit longer. The addition of dill was excellent (we are fans of dill). This will go into my rotation.
I absolutely loved this! I really get tired of leftover ham. Ham is too salty for me to want day after day so I'm always looking for leftover ham recipes. This one hit the spot. My 3 year old ate it too so you know it's good. Thank you!
I had to change this up a bit - but used all the same ingredients. I started this stove top - melted the butter and sauteed the onions, a clove of garlic a diced carrot and a 2 stalks of celery (not called for in the recipe) added the flour and made a roux. I stirred and cooked that down, added chicken broth, instead of water and the chicken soup base. Added the corn, parsley, dill and celery seed and chicken soup. Then added the potatoes - brought to a simmer and then added it all to the slow cooker set on low. I would suggest dicing the potatoes fairly small and I think I would omit the chicken soup next time and use use some milk when I made the roux. This is rather salty with the ham, canned soup etc... be careful adding any extra salt. Overall we were very pleased with this soup, I would really just suggest changing the method.
It was delicious. I have to eat low potassium and low or no sodium foods. I leached the potatoes, made my own cream of chicken from another recipe. I used frozen vegetables and added no salt, still goooooooood!!!
So easy and delicious.
