I used 4 oz of goat cheese and added 4 strips of chopped turkey bacon. It was just what it needed for more flavor. So easy in crock pot. My husband and I loved it.

I used 5 chicken thighs so I upped the broth to 4 cups; added pepper and sage for flavor. Also added red pepper flakes to add a little kick. Next time,if time allows, I'll pan sear the chicken before putting it in the pot. Enjoyed it very much and will make it again.

This recipe was not good at all. I know it's hard for low cal recipes to have flavor but this lacked severely in flavor.
