  1. Place a slow cooker liner bag in your crockpot (*see Notes below)
  2. Place potatoes, chicken broth, and butter in crockpot
  3. Cover and cook on high for 4 – 4-1/2 hours or until potatoes are tender
  4. Add remaining ingredients except for the milk

  1. For easy clean up, I always use a slow cooker liner bag – makesure if you use a slow cooker liner bag, that you buy the specific liner bag that is made for Slow Cookers, DO NOT use anything else or it will melt and ruin your food!
