Great for a game-day get-together, this hearty and creamy soup feeds a crowd with little hands-on time required.
Combine first 10 ingredients in a 6-quart slow cooker. Cover and cook on HIGH until chicken and sweet potatoes are tender, about 4 hours. Remove chicken from slow cooker. Coarsely shred, discarding bones; set aside.
Whisk together cream and cornstarch in a bowl until smooth; stir into soup. Cover and cook until slightly thickened, about 30 minutes. Stir in chicken and parsley. Top with hot sauce and chives.
Absolutely loved it! Heart warming and delicious!
