Replace soup with a cup of white wine.  An hour before it is done, mix a couple tbsp of cornstarch with some cool water, broth, or wine.  Pour the cornstarch into the slow cooker.  Add the chicken and cook 3 hours.   Stir in 3 oz of cream cheese or leave out entirely.  Add the broccoli and cook another hour.
