Slow-Cook Turkey Chowder

This Weight Watchers recipe has a point value of 5 for 1 1/2 cups.
*this is a new recipe for me, I will report on my views after we try it.

4 slices smoked bacon (we always use turkey bacon)
1 lb turkey breast cutlets, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 medium baking potato, about 12oz, peeled and cut into 1/4 inch cubes
2 medium carrots, peeled and chopped
1 onion, chopped
1 celery stalk, chopped
2 (10.75 oz) cans low-fat condensed cream of mushroom soup
2 c fat-free low-sodium chicken broth
1/2 tsp dried thyme
1/2 tsp dried sage

1. In a medium skillet, cook the bacon over medium heat until crisp, 3-4 minutes per side. Transfer to a plate covered with a paper towel to drain. Cool the bacon 3 minutes, then chop.

2. In a slow cooker, place the bacon, turkey, potato, carrots, onion, celery, soup, broth, thyme, and sage. Stir well to combine. Cover and cook on low until the soup is thick and the turkey and vegetables are tender, 8-10 hours.
