On: Lean Crockpot Chicken and Veggie Soup

There is nothing quite like coming home to dinner ready and smelling amazing in the crockpot. This recipe is very easy to prepare, lean, and spectacular, a great way to greet fall…Even though the thermometer reads 95 degrees on this September day in Southern Oregon, it is fall by george, and we are going to have soup!
