1 Tbsp regular butter
4 cup(s) uncooked leek(s), cleaned and sliced
10 clove(s) (medium) garlic clove(s), minced
4 cup(s) reduced-sodium chicken broth
2 pound(s) uncooked Yukon gold potato(es), scrubbed and cut into 1⁄2-inch pieces
1 leaf/leaves bay leaf
1/2 tsp table salt
1/4 tsp black pepper, freshly ground
2 cup(s) (chopped) cooked skinless boneless chicken breast(s), shredded
2 oz semisoft goat cheese, crumbled
1 Tbsp fresh tarragon, chopped, or 1 teaspoon dried
3 Tbsp fresh parsley, fresh, chopped
- Melt the butter in a large nonstick saucepan over medium heat. Add the leek and garlic; cook, stirring frequently, until golden, about 10 minutes. Stir in the broth; bring to a boil.
- Put the potatoes, bay leaf, salt, and pepper in a 5–6-quart slow cooker; pour the broth mixture over the potatoes. Cover the slow cooker and cook until the potatoes are fork-tender, 3–4 hours on high or 6–8 hours on low.
- Discard the bay leaf. Transfer the mixture to a blender or food processor in batches and puree. Return the mixture to the slow cooker. Add the chicken, goat cheese, and tarragon; cover and cook on high until the chicken is heated through and the cheese melts, about 30 minutes. Serve the soup sprinkled with the parsley. Yields 1 1/3 cups per serving.
- Here we combine the two favorites to make a delicious and fragrant soup, then temper the strong taste of garlic with creamy goat cheese and cooked chicken.

The tarragon gave it a funky flavor didn't like it will try again without it
Made some substitutions based on what we had (scallions for leeks, thyme for tarragon) but I would still say this turned out beautifully. My boyfriend said "I wouldn't even add salt to this" and he puts salt on everything!
Good recipe! Made it twice and my boyfriend loves it! Make sure you keep an eye on it though because it can become over cooked and gloopy.
Loved it! Just a hint of garlic, along with the creamy potato, and all of it going into a Slow Cooker! My kind of soup, and paried with a hearty salad to complete the meal. Will make it again.
