Chicken Cheddar Broccoli Soup

I grabbed a package of Bear Creek Cheddar Broccoli Soup one day, just because it sounded good at the moment. Here it is beefed up:

1 package Bear Creek Cheddar Broccoli Soup mix
8 c water
1/2 lb. chicken breast, cooked and diced
1 tbsp butter
2 garlic cloves, minced
1/2 white onion, minced
1 c shredded cheddar

Prepare soup according to package directions. Meanwhile, saute garlic and onion in butter. When both are finished, combine all ingredients, and simmer until cooked through. Enjoy!
