4 tablespoon ghee or butter
4 cloves of garlic, minced
3 cups of shredded rotisserie chicken
½ cup cream cheese
1 teaspoon paprika
1 teaspoon sea salt
1 teaspoon black pepper
2 pouches of Bare Bones Rosemary Lemon Bone Broth

In a high sided pot (or dutch oven), melt the butter and saute the minced garlic until fragrant.
Add the paprika, salt and pepper and stir to fully incorporate; allow to saute for another minute or so.
Add the chopped chicken and cream cheese, and stir gently to melt the cheese and warm the chicken. When cheese is melted, add the broth and heavy cream, bring to a boil, then reduce heat and cover. Simmer for 4-5 minutes.
