Hello Fall!

What a perfect way to say farewell to our Indian Summer and hunker down for some cool weather and warm soup – the smokey flavor of BBQ sauce and the comfort found only in chicken broth.

Prep Time: 10min    Total Time: 6hr 40min   Servings: 4

2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast  (I almost always use Costco organic chicken thighs.)
1/3 cup diced onion
3 cloves garlic, finely chopped
1 can (15.25 oz) Green Giant™ SteamCrisp™ Southwestern style corn (corn with peppers)
1 can (15.5 oz) white beans, drained, rinsed
5 cups Progresso™ chicken broth (from two 32-oz cartons)
1 cup barbecue sauce ( Sweet Baby Ray is my favorite. I use half this amount.)
1 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
Shredded Cheddar cheese, if desired (Try Pepper Jack for a little zing.)

In 6-quart slow cooker, add chicken breast, onion, garlic, corn and white beans.
In large bowl, mix broth, barbecue sauce salt and pepper. Pour into slow cooker.
Cover; cook on Low heat setting 6 hours.
Remove chicken breast from slow cooker, and shred using two forks.
Place back into slow cooker. Cover and cook 30 minutes.
Serve soup topped with shredded cheese.
