Sunday Slow Cooker: Hearty Fish Chowder

Making seafood in a slow cooker can be tricky, but this hearty fish chowder is a rare gem.

The key is to add the fish in the last hour, so as not to overcook it. Cream of celery soup and milk powder add richness and body to the stew; chunky potatoes, stewed tomatoes, and legumes add texture.
