Recipe: Broccoli Chicken Soup

I should have taken pictures of the process, but I was really worried about getting it right since I have never made broccoli soup. Yes, minus the cheddar, but adding some chicken. OK, you can add cheddar for more protein for keto, but not paleo. I ate two servings and wouldn't have minded two or three more.
