Is it cold and snowing where you are? We are having such an odd winter. It’s been anywhere from in the 60’s to in the high 20’s. But only a little bit of snow in November. This is not my kind of winter!

Slow Cooker Broccoli Chicken Soup is the perfect soup for cold wintery weather that even your kids will love and it is a great way to hide some vegetables if your kiddos aren’t veggie lovers. 

We love meals that are heart enough like this soup that are enough to actually be a meal itself. A couple of bowls of this soup and you will be full. It is a thick and hearty soup. Almost like a chowder you could say. Processing all the vegetables in the food processor helps thicken it up.
