Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Soup



Today is the perfect day for a steaming hot bowl of soup. It's blustery and chilly outside. I'm certainly not ready for this type of weather yet! I love Broccoli Cheddar Soup but wanted to add a little protein to it and the chicken went perfectly with it. It was delish!



Slow Cooker Broccoli Cheddar Chicken Soup
Serves 8
WW PP=5
Cal 178, Carbs 24.3, Fat 5, Fiber 2, Protein 9.7

Ingredients
5 cups low sodium chicken broth
8 oz. chicken tenderloins
1/2 cup diced yellow onion

6 cups diced hash brown potatoes
