Green Chicken

This is one filling and tasty recipe! I got 4 stars from my kiddos!

1 pkg vegetable soup mix
2 cups chicken broth
6 chicken breasts (however many will feed your family)
1 pkg of frozen broccoli florets
1 stick butter
1/2 cup flour
2 cups milk
2 cups shredded cheese
salt and pepper, to taste

in the crock pot, mix together soup mix and broth. Add chicken (mine was frozen) and top with frozen broccoli. cook for 6-8 hours on low.

Once your chicken and broccoli is cooked, remove both from crock pot. strain your broth mixture, so you are sure to get all of the broccoli pieces out!!!

In a pan, I melt 1 stick of butter, add 1/2 cup of flour, and about 2-3 cups of milk (depends on how thick you want your sauce). Allow to thicken slightly, salt and pepper to taste and Add 2 cups of shredded cheese. I used cheddar and I had a little velveeta leftover in the fridge so I added about 8 oz.
Once the cheese mixture is nice and smooth and simmering on low, add the strained broccoli.

Shred your cooled chicken and you can either
1) add chicken to the cheesy mixture
2) spoon the cheesy mixture over the chicken!

I serve mine over rice! And Yum, this beautiful green chicken is really somethin'!

This sounds like the perfect dish to prepare for this weekend! I love putting meals in the crock pot, especially in the autumn. I think it sounds like this would taste delicious over some whole wheat pasta! Thanks for the recipe!
