First, in the Crock pot, whisk together the soups and two cans of milk.  Next, stir in the can of water, the stick of butter, the salt and pepper, the carrots, the potatoes, the peas, the green beans, the lima beans, the corn, and the onion.  Once everything is all mixed up together, put the chicken breasts in; turn them over a few times so that they are covered in the washington d.c. new years eve soup/veggie mixture.  Cover the crock pot, and put it on medium for three hours or on high for two hours or until the chicken breasts are 160 degrees (fully cooked).
