  • 2 pound boneless, skinless chicken breast
  • 2 teaspoons garlic powder
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 2 teaspoons cumin
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 1/4 teaspoon black pepper
  • 32 ounces chicken stock
  • 2 10 ounce cans Rotel, undrained
  • 1 bar (8 ounces) cream cheese, room temperature
  • 2 cups shredded cheddar cheese
  • Optional thickener: 1 tablespoon corn starch mixed with 1 tablespoon COLD water OR 1/8 teaspoon xanthan gum


Crock Pot Instructions:

  • Add the chicken breast, spices, undrained cans of Rotel, and chicken broth to the slow cooker or Dutch oven. Secure the lid, and if cooking in the slow cooker, set it to low for up to 8 hours or high for up to 4 hours.
  • Remove the chicken and shred. While the chicken is out of the soup, add the cream cheese and shredded cheese. Whisk vigorously until the cheese has melted and incorporated. Add the chicken back to the soup and stir well.
  • At this point you can serve the soup or use the instructions below to thicken the soup if desired.

Dutch Oven Instructions: (preferred method)

  • Place your chicken, spices, undrained Rotel, and chicken broth into the Dutch oven. Bring the soup to a simmer over medium-high heat, then cover and reduce the heat to low. Cook for 25 minutes or until the chicken is tender.
  • Remove the chicken and shred. Add the softened cream cheese and shredded cheese, whisking vigorously until it has melted. Add the chicken back into the pot and stir well.
  • At this point, you can serve the soup or use the instructions below to thicken the soup if desired.

To Thicken:

  • This step is optional; you can thicken the soup by allowing it to simmer uncovered for 10 minutes until some of the liquid has evaporated.
  • Alternatively, you can use a slurry with a cornstarch and water mixture or xanthan gum to thicken the soup. To do that, add the thickening agent and whisk vigorously. If using xanthan gum, you may add an additional 1/8 teaspoon if you need to thicken further, but add this very sparingly. It can change the texture of your soup quickly.
