Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Soup

Livi & I love broccoli cheese soup so when Toby brought a recipe home from a lady he works with for a soup with cheese, broccoli & chicken I couldn't wait to try it. Unfortunately, it was not all it was cracked up to be & I was really disappointed. 

After thinking about it for a little while, I decided to change up the recipe & see what I could come up with. The result: my own version of Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Soup. It's creamy & thick like a chowder, super easy to make & tastes wonderful!  

Cheesy Chicken Broccoli Soup

2 cans of cooked chicken breast, drained & broken into smaller pieces
1-1/2 bags of frozen broccoli
2 cans of cheddar cheese soup
3-4 cups of milk - enough to make it soup like; use more for thinner soup & less for more chowder-like soup
1/2 cup of onions (more or less depending on your family's preference for onions)
salt & pepper to taste
8 oz. cream cheese, softened & cubed

Mix everything but the cream cheese & heat over low-med. heat until warm. Stir in cream cheese & stir until melted (this may take several minutes)

Serve with crumbled bacon & shredded cheese. 
Makes about 4-5 servings.
