Expert Tips

In place of fresh broccoli, you can use 2 cups Green Giant Select® frozen broccoli florets. Thaw them before adding to the slow cooker.

Chicken thigh meat is ideal for long, slow cooking because the rich dark meat doesn’t dry out in the slow cooker as would leaner light meat such as chicken breasts. For food-safety reasons, any leftover soup should be cooled in a shallow container in the refrigerator, rather than at room temperatures.
