This slow cooker chicken dish is all about convenience. The combination of condensed soups makes a tasty sauce that is delicious served with the chicken.

The dish doesn't have much color, so I added some chopped fresh parsley. Chopped pimientos or finely chopped bell pepper would be good as well. Take a look at some other ideas in the tips and variations below the instructions.

Serve the chicken and sauce with hot cooked rice, noodles, or potatoes. Add a tossed salad for a satisfying family meal.

What You'll Need

  • 6 boneless chicken breast halves, without skin
  • kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper, to taste
  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces each)  condensed cream of chicken soup or cream of chicken with herbs
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • fresh chopped parsley, optional

How to Make It

Rinse chicken and sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder. Mix undiluted soup and pour over chicken in a Crock Pot.

Cover and cook on low 6 to 8 hours, or until the chicken is done. The minimum safe temperature for chicken is 165° F (74° C). 

Serve over rice or noodles and garnish with fresh chopped parsley, if desired.

Serves 6.

Tips and Variations

  • Use 2 cans of cheddar cheese soup and 1 can of cream of chicken soup for more cheese flavor.
  • Replace the cheddar cheese soup or 1 can of the cream of chicken soup with nacho cheese soup or broccoli cheese soup.
  • Replace the chicken breasts with boneless chicken thighs.
  • Omit the cheese soup and add about 1 to 2 cups of cheddar cheese 20 to 30 minutes before the chicken is done.
  • Add chopped pimientos or finely chopped hot or bell peppers to the soup mixture.
