Ingredients

Method

In large saucepan, fry bacon over medium heat until crisp. Transfer bacon to paper towel-lined plate. Set aside.

Drain fat from pan; add 8 cups (2 L) water, chicken, onion, celery and salt ; bring to boil. Reduce heat and simmer until chicken is no longer pink inside, about 15 minutes. Remove chicken; using 2 forks, shred. Set aside.

Return chicken stock mixture to medium-high heat. Add potato and pepper; simmer for 5 minutes. Add broccoli; cook until all vegetables are tender, about 10 minutes. Let cool slightly.
 
In batches, transfer soup to blender; add 3/4 cup (175 mL) of the cheese. Blend until smooth; reheat if necessary. Ladle into bowls; top with chicken, bacon, croutons (if using) and remaining cheese. Makes about 6 servings.
