This easy slow cooker chicken soup is a snap to prepare in the crock pot. The combination of chicken, cubed potatoes, and a variety of vegetables is flavored to perfection with vegetable juice and chicken broth.

A small amount of Dijon mustard and hot pepper sauce jazzes the soup up and adds some heat.

  • 1 1/2 cups frozen corn kernels

  • 1/2 cup chopped celery
  • 2 tablespoons Dijon mustard
