Crock-Pot Brocoli Soup

Crock-Pot Cheesy Chicken Brocoli Soup

Slow cooker recipes in the fall.... Only the best thing EVER!!!!

 

I love having that hot meal from the crock-pot on a cool day in the fall. This is why I love this Broccoli Soup recipe!! First off, if you don't like broccoli cheddar soup, I don't know what you are doing wrong with your life... (just kidding ;-))

 

But really.... this recipe is a FAMILY FAVORITE!!! And my girls are so excited that its getting a little bit cooler outside because they know that I will be making it soon!!! Not only does this taste DELICIOUS, but it also makes the house smell AMAZING the whole day that it is cooking in the crock pot!!! - another perk of those slow cook meals in the fall ;-)

 

So here is the yummy recipe that I highly encourage cooking for your family this fall:

Crock-Pot Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Soup

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 5 c. chicken broth
  • 3/4 lb. peeled baby potatoes, cut into1/4" cubes
  • 1 large head of broccoli, cut into small florets
  • 1 onion, chopped
  • kosher salt
  • Freshly ground black pepper
  • 1/4 c. flour
  • 1 c. heavy cream
  • 1 1/2 c. shredded Cheddar, plus more for garnish
  • 1/2 c. grated Parmesan
  • Sour cream, for serving

 

DIRECTIONS

  1. Combine chicken breasts, chicken broth, potatoes, broccoli and onion in the bowl of a Crock-Pot. Season with salt and pepper and stir.
  2. Cover pot and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours, until the chicken is cooked through.
  3. Remove chicken from Crock-Pot and transfer to a large bowl. Using two forks, shred into bite-size pieces.
  4. In a medium bowl, whisk together flour and cream. Pour mixture into Crock-Pot and stir to combine. Return chicken to Crock-Pot and add cheddar and Parmesan. Turn heat to high, cover and cook for 30 minutes more, or until the cheese has melted and the soup has thickened.
  5. Taste for seasoning and add more salt and pepper if necessary.
  6. Ladle into soup bowls and serve immediately. Garnish with sour cream and more cheese.
