As it was opening day for Pick A Chef I needed a crockpot recipe so made adaptations to make it work. The recipe was a big hit even with the pickiest of diners. (I didn't tell them about the apples or coconut until AFTER they were raving about the soup. HA!) I sauteed boneless chicken pieces and then added all of the soup ingredients to the crockpot except the cream. I was out of apple juice so used applesauce I had open. It cooked on high and smelled delicious. I forgot to add the cream at the end, but we swooned over the soup anyway. defiinitely a keeper! Thank you for sharing the recipe!
