  • 1 tsp sea salt
  • ½ tsp pepper
  • 2 tsp All Purpose Seasoning
  • 5 cloves of garlic minced
  • 2 pints homemade condensed cream of chicken soup Or 2 cans. See Tips section for a link my my recipe - it is really simple and tastes just like the stuff you are used to!
  • 2 cups organic cheese shredded
  • 1 lb frozen organic broccoli thawed
  • 1 ½ - 2 cups cooked chicken See the Tips section to see how I usually crockpot a couple whole chickens every month and keep the meat portioned and shredded in the freezer so this pulls out quick!

Instructions

  • Sauté the onion, carrot, and celery in the friendly fat with the sea salt, pepper, and all purpose season for about 7-10 minutes.
