Julia's Easy Slow Cooker Chicken
An easy one dish meal.
An easy one dish meal.
My husband and teenagers are picky eaters but loved this recipe because it has their favorites: Chicken and gravy. This is quick and easy to put together, has large inexpensive portions that are not laden with fat. These are my recommendations/changes: 6 split chicken breast, meat carefully removed from bone. Rinse, pat dry. 7 med red potatoes, scrubbed, skin on & cubed (no larger than ¾”) 2 (10.75 oz) cans Campbell’s healthy choice (low fat/sodium) cream of mushroom soup. 1 soup can water (filtered if you have it) 3 heaping tablespoons of the packaged dry onion mix 2 cups fresh green beans (tips removed, beans cut in half) 2 cups baby carrots Tarragon and garlic powder - divided, sea salt, fresh ground pepper and paprika Layered ingredients starting with green beans, potatoes, carrots. Sprinkle over veggies: 1/8 teaspoon Tarragon, pinch of garlic powder, light on the salt & pepper. Lay chicken pieces over veggies making sure thickest part of chicken points towards crock-pot wall. Mix together the 2 cans of soup, 1 can water, 3 tablespoons of dry onion soup, 1/8 tarragon & 1/8 garlic powder. Salt and pepper to taste. Pour sauce over chicken & vegetables. Sprinkle lightly with paprika. Cook for 5 hours on high making sure after 4 1/2 hrs chicken isn’t already done. If it is, remove meat and cover to keep warm while veggies continue to cook until tender. Sorry about the detail – teaching teenagers to cook.Read More
Ive tried this two ways now. The first time was by the instructions, it turned out absolutely disgusting and had to throw it all away. The 2nd way was after reviewing other people's comments...changed it like this: 1 cup water instead of milk Cream of chicken instead of cream of mushroom 5 chicken breasts Did not add cornstarch. Now this turned out really well and I'll make it again - but I don't consider this the same recipe, so leaving my rating at 1.Read More

I replaced the cream of mushroom soup with cream of chicken soup (we don't like mushrooms), replaced the milk with 1/2 cup of water, and omitted the cornstarch because I didn't have any on hand. The result was fantastic!! My fiancee had two helpings and raved about this meal for hours!! Thanks, Sarah :)
I use the cream of mushroom soup and onion soup mix to make a wonderful eye round roast in the crockpot - I never add any additional liquid to it or cornstarch and the gravy comes out perfect - lots of compliments, so that's how I made this dish and it also came out perfect. So, for everyone who finds this recipe bland, omit the milk and cornstarch - it makes all the difference. If you do want the gravy a little thinner then add no more than 1/4 cup of water.
I made this for dinner and my husband coundn't say enough about how delicious it was, and my VERY fussy girls' backed him right up. I think there was too much chicken for 4 people and I would use 4 halves instead of 8 next time to make the ratio of chicken to potatoes more even. Instead of the milk (I used condensed) you could use 2 cans of soup for a thicker sauce but I just added 4 Tbsp. of flour to 4 Tbsp. of melted butter and cooked stirring constantly for a minute until bubbly. I added to the sauce for the last hour as well as some salt, pepper and sprinkled a layer of nutmeg on the top. It tasted great and was plenty thick enough for me.
This was really great! I made some modifications as others suggested - browned chicken in a skillet with garlic, paprika, salt, pepper, and oregano. I also added these same spices to the sauce. I used 2 cans cream of chicken and a combination of chicken broth, water, and milk instead of the canned milk. I used 4 large chicken breasts and added carrots, diced onion and fresh mushrooms. It cooked in 2 1/2 hours on high. It was kind of soupy so I cut up the chicken and it was a wonderful stew that was good alone and over quick drop biscuits!
We used a bit of advice from other reviews - Cream of chicken soup, water instead of milk - and it turned out excellent!
What a great idea! I took this base recipe and, like other reviewers, added my own touches. I made it into more of a stew almost, by adding a sliced onion, 2 carrots cut up, 2 stalks of celery, and some garlic. To the soup sauce I added basil, old bay, herbs de provence, pepper, and extra can of soup, and about 3/4 c chunked velveeta. I used only 1 1/2 cans milk, and doubled the cornstarch. After 3 hrs on low the veggies were still hard, so i cranked it up to high and cooked 2 hrs more. The bf raved and requested it again SOON!
Great and easy recipe! I made the mistake of using pre-seasoned chicken, so it was a bit salty - but that was my fault! Thanks for the recipe!
This is a good base recipe. I added veggies and spices (Herb d'prov. and fine herbs) as well as garlic. I substituted Mushroom soup for Chicken condensed. I also used frozen chicken breasts from M&M meats and they turned out soooo tender! mmmmm. I turned it on low at 7am and ate at 5 pm.

I used 3 FROZEN boneless skinless chicken breasts, stated amount of potatoes, 1/2 package of onion soup mix, 1 can of water and milk mixed together and a heaping TSP of cornstarch. I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used cream of chicken. I put it on low for 10 hours (long work day). My 3yo loved the chicken--my 8yo and I loved the potatoes. Nice for a comfort food cold winter night! Thanks!
The chicken was SO MOIST! It was flavorful and made a great gravy. I used water instead of milk and started with frozen chicken breasts. I cooked on high for about 4.5 hours.
I put frozen chicken breasts in the slow cooker and cooked on high for 5 hours and replaced the milk with water like other reviewers suggested and deleted the cornstarch altogether. I added a small can of sliced champignons too. Served over pasta spirals...what a hit! My fussy toddlers loved it and licked their bowls! *sigh of relief*
Wonderful recipe!! Since I was short on time, I used my toaster oven instead of the crockpot. The chicken breast browned very nicely in a covered roasting pan. Much prettier then the picture. Using 4 large frozen skinless chicken breasts, it was done in about an hour. I did double the cream soup as recommended by some others. I also added one sliced onion and a few carrots to add additional flavor. Since the mixture was thick as is, I opted to leave the corn starch out. At the end of the baking time (about l hour), I added some chunks of velveeta cheese to the potatoe mixture. If you like scalloped potatoes...you will love this recipe! Delicious! Thanks for sharing!!
My "picky eater" family loved this dish! I did brown the chicken in olive oil, 2 cloves minced garlic, 2 tsp Wor. Sauce, and 1 tsp soy sauce. Added onion soup mix, corn starch, mushroom soup and water to pan drippings to make gravey. Sprinkled top of chicken with Thyme leaves. Chicken was very moist and had plenty of gravy. GREAT AROMA!
Pretty darn good! I scaled it down for two and added a little chicken broth (maybe 1/2 cup) as my crock tends to get a little more hot than I'd like when cooking for a long time. I started this at 7:30 on low and we ate when I came home by 6:30. A LONG time cooking but it held up very well. Will definitely make this one again.
Wonderful and comforting! Have a long week at work so I threw into the crockpot this morning-8 BS chicken breasts and sprinkled them with Mrs Dash. Washed and cubed(didnt peel) 8 potatoes and 5 carrots and one large onion(cut into rings) and layered those on. Plus I had a handful of fresh green beans from the garden so I threw those in. Mixed up one can cream of chicken mushroom and one can cream of celery with one bag of dry onion soup mix and one can water and poured it on. Let it cook on low 10 hrs and came home to a delicious aroma!Will definately make again as the chicken was SOOOOO tender!! THANKS!!
This was awesome. I used cream of mushroom soup with roasted garlic. Love It!
This was a good,basic recipe, but I did think it was a bit bland. That might be primarily because I prefer a little more "zip" in flavor, but it was a solid and easy recipe. Smelled good while cooking. Might make it again, but adding some spice...
Really tasty! I used Cream of Chicken soup. HATE mushrooms! I also cut the potatoes into larger cubes. Thanks, Julia. Made our dinner a real hit!!!!!!!! Kathy
I followed this recipe exactly and while it cooked it smelled so good and we were anxious to try it. I cooked it exactly like called for. However, we were so very disappointed. My husband and I could not even finish eating it--it was bland and we tried to doctor it up with a little pepper and some salt to no avail. My father who does not have a sense of taste anymore liked it because of the texture. I can not figure out what went so wrong after reading other reviews this seems to be the exception.
This recipe was O.K., nothing great. I added more potatoes and did 6 breast halves.The leftovers of this tasted better than the first day's results.
Very tasty! I used 2 cans of soup, added some baby carrots and mushrooms, and baked the whole thing in two pastry crusts. Makes yummy pot pie!
This was absolutely wonderful. Just put it all in the crock pot and go to work. My daughter even ask me to fix it at least once a week.
We really enjoyed this recipe. I only used half the chicken and found the recipe to still turn out great. I'll be making this again.
This was a nice dinner for a cold night. It was filling and comforting, but I wouldn't call it flavorful. I added some carrots for some veggies. It made a lot of food (and I only used 6 chicken breasts). Next time I will add more seasoning.
Very easy and likable crock pot recipe. I added a Mexicali twist with cumin, lime, red pepper flakes, and chilis!
Love this recipe! One of my faves to use when time is short. I put potatoes and chicken in the crockpot (either breasts or tenders), leave the skins on the potatoes, and use either mushroom or cream of chicken soup. The cornstarch really doesn't make that much of a difference. I let this cook all day on low, and the chicken just falls apart. I actually like to cook brown rice as a side dish, which is great with the gravy. We serve green beans or peas as a veggie, and I have happy campers. I've read other reviews where they think the flavor is lacking, but I think it's just right. Oniony but not overpowering. Anything any stronger would turn my husband and kids right off. This is great inexpensive, easy, pretty healthy dinner for a busy family! Thanks!
We all loved this recipe. I made a few changes to this wonderful base recipe. I seasoned my chicken with Mrs. Dash salt free onion and herbs seasoning and pepper. I also added some seasoning to the potatoes. I used 2 cans of garlic cream of mushroom and 1 can low sodium chicken broth. I used the one package of dry onion soup mix and some Mrs. Dash salt free onion and herb seasoning and pepper. I used 6 chicken breats as I feed a large family. We served over home-made biscuits and salad on the side. My family loved it and I will keep this base recipe and create more variations in the future. It is nice to have good base recipes like this one so meals never get boring. We hate boring same ole same ole for supper.
No fuss,easy to make. Tasted great
Very good but omit milk and cornstarch-add two cans of soup and lots of garlic and pepper-no salt
Delicious and so easy! Followed directions exactly. mmmmMMMmmmm good. :)
A hit at our house. Easy to make and quite flavorful.
After I saw all the rave reviews I thought I had to try this one out. It was nothing great at all. In fact, we'll never cook it again. It was more like a soup, but the chicken was too done and there wasn't enough flavor. I even added spices, carrots, onions and garlic like some reviews stated. Also, it just had too many calories with adding the soup. If I was going to make a chicken soup I'd just use some water and the onion soup mix.
This was great and it had alot of flavor! I read the reviews before making this so I used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and there was pleanty of gravy. I also doubled the corn starch but not the milk if I had it would have been to runny. I also added carrots like other reviews stated. Over all it was very good my whole family like it!
Since my boys hate mushrooms, I used cream of chicken soup instead. As dinnertime approached, the sauce seemed a little thin, so I added another can of soup, more milk and another packet of onion soup mix. My husband loved it, but the kids weren't too crazy about it.
really easy , simple recipe , i dint add the dry onion soup , i added some chicken bouillon it come out tasty
Blecch. The sauce curdled, and the potatoes were a funny consistency. It was also way too salty. Won't make this again.
Very simple recipe. I used thighs and legs (which I seasoned with a little salt, pepper and garlic powder) and instead of cream of mushroom soup I used cream of chicken. I also replaced the milk with chicken broth. The chicken fell right off the bone.
Was very good. add some olive oil, salt and pepper was very tender.. Would make again...
This recipe was very easy and delicious. I didn't have cream of mushroom soup so I used cream of chicken instead. I also used regular milk instead of canned milk. My family absolutely loved this recipe! Thanks for sharing it!
This recipe was so easy and quick to make, but my husband and I loved it. I am a schoolteacher and I definitely plan to make this again during the school year when I am short on time! I only added 1/2 a package of onion soup mix, but next time I will add the whole thing to have more flavor. I also liked that I could only use 4 chicken breasts and less potatoes and carrots to make it smaller for two people.
I fixed this meal for the first time this afternoon for my family. We were all very impressed. It was delicious. I made a few modifications baecause of other reviews. I used skinless, boneless, thighs. I added pepper, garlic powder, and onion powder to the chicken before putting in the crock. I also used 1/2 cans of water instead of the can of milk, and pot 6 meduim potatoes. Also cooked it on high for 4 hrs. Next time I will put 10 thighs since there were very little left overs. Thanx for the post
Used cream of chicken soup and only 1/2 cup of milk so I didn't have to use the cornstarch. I also added some garlic powder and chives to bump up the taste (bland).
Good, but standard. The standard combination of onion soup and mushroom soup. Not for those watching sodium intake!
I think this dish is exactly what it claims to be--"an easy, one dish meal". I found it to be very tasty, not bland at all. In fact I was worried it would be too salty due to the onion soup, but it was perfect. I didn't have potatoes, so omitted those, but added some frozen broccoli for the last 15 minutes of cook time. I only used 2 chicken breasts and they were done in 3-1/2 hours on low. Perfect--tender and juicy. Ate it over white rice and it was great. I would make this again.
I also added a can of condensed cheddar cheese soup, it was delicious!
I'm giving this 5 stars for two reasons, it's easy and my picky family liked it. I have two toddlers (1 & 3), they both ate this eagerly and that is no easy feat! I doubled the recipes for the gravy and that worked out great. I made white rice for the kids and used the gravy for the rice (since they don't like potatos). My husband enjoyed it with the potatos. Oh and have some bread or biscuits with this to sop up the gravy. Next time I think I'll add carrots to it. Thanks Julia for the great, easy recipe!
Far too salty with the onion soup mix!!
I also used cream of chicken soup and exchanged the milk for water. Everyone loved it, even my son who is in culinary school. He usually only like food that uses many ingredients. He was impressed something so simple was so good!
When cooking this, it was way too thick--I added water after about 6 hours. I didn't think it was bland like other folks, but maybe it's because I cut my chicken up into pieces. My husband liked it and had two helpings. I, on the other hand, couldn't eat it. I didn't like the consistency of the potatoes, and the sauce was kind of over-powering.
I like the boldness of adding something different to the mix, however I found this stew lacking the flavor I thought it would have. It came out kind of bland for my taste, but I agree it definitely has potential. I think with a little tweeking this could be an excellent slow cooker recipe.
I did not use milk, I used 1 1/4 can water, I also used 2 cans of garlic cream of mushroom soup, I added one whole onion, and one half bag, baby carrots, could have used whole bag of carrots, I also used creole spice - generous amount, and 2-4 tablespoons of cornstarch to help thicken sauce, I also used chicken thighs with bones and the meat came right off the bone. This was so good and had the whole apt smelling delicious, the neighbors and I enjoyed thoroughly, please take my suggestions to heart, this was awesome.
Hearty meal but, it was a little bland for my taste. I would definetly add salt and pepper. Maybe some mixed veggies or fresh mushrooms.
Super easy. I threw 4 frozen chicken breasts in the crockpot with quartered potatoes, a can of chicken gravy, a half can of water mixed with the onion soup mix and turned it to med-high for 5 hours. When it was almost ready, it still seemed soupy, so I added some flour mixed with water to thicken it up. Smelled and tasted delicious.
I decided to change this up a bit for a different spin. I omitted the potatoes and added fresh mushrooms(sliced) and fresh garlic to the ingredients. cooked on High for 4.5 hours and then spooned the finished product over mashed potatoes! Aaaaaaaamazing! :)
this was good but was missing a little something. I did add some frozen peas to it when it was done (about 2 cups) for a veggie also. I think next time I will add 1/2 tsp salt and 1/4 tsp pepper and maybe a cup of fresh mushrooms as well. Tasty but needs a little help.
was a very tasty meal !!! not much of a hit for little ones but My husband & I loved it !!!
This was a very good meal. Easy to make and smelled wonderful the whole day in the slow cooker. The only thing is that my husband and I decided that next time we would add a little more milk and make it more of a soup instead. That is because it lacked the makings of a "meal". But it was super and the left overs were great as well! Thanks for sharing!
I made it like the recipe said except I used 2 large skinless chicken breasts.Bland. Both my husband and I didn't love it nor did we hate it...it was missing something.
I forgot the cornstarch, which is a MUST in this recipe. I used Campbell's Healthy Request Cream of Mushroom, for less sodium and fat, and used 1 T. chicken bouillon in place of the onion soup mix. I also tossed in a little dried minced onion, garlic powder, and season salt. I sliced the potatoes thin, instead of cubing them, and this allowed them and the chicken to cook in only 6 hours on low. This recipe is simple and delicious, will definitely make it again!
This was yummy on a rainy cold day. I doubled the cream of mushroom, used water instead of milk, and added some garlic. I plan on using the leftover gravy for mashed potatoes tomorrow!
It made the house smell great, but the taste was only ok. It was mushy and not appealing to look at. I don't think I'll make this again. I used 4 chicken breasts.
Not my favorite. 5 stars for ease of preparation. Flavor - not so much. Made it as listed. It smelled good when I came home, we just didn't care for the overall flavor of the dish. Not really willing to tweak it to try to make it better.
This was VERY good! I'm a busy mom that works fulltime and has two young children in school/daycare so I loved being able to throw everything into crockpot in morning. Cooked on low from 7am-6pm. I did use water instead of milk since I didn't have much on hand. The only thing I would add next time is carrots as well. We served over toast.
This was very easy and good! I used about 4 split chicken breasts, and reduced the fat by using skim milk and reduced fat cream of chicken soup. I served it over rice. Will be making again!
We all really enjoyed this! I made it with red potatoes but I think I might try it with rice or egg noodles next.
I think this recipe is better without the combination of dry onion soup, milk, and cream soup. Maybe omit the milk and substitute chicken broth. Will try that next time.
Wonderful. It was great over rice or noodles. I have modified this all kinds of ways. Great as-is or as a base. Try 1/2 cup white wine or a Zinfandel instead of milk. Also great with small green trees in in it. (Broccoli)
Can't get much simplier than this. Absolutely delicious. Lots of gravy although I only used 2 boneless skinless chicken breasts.
OMG its so delicious!I know people makes alot of comments on how we change the orginal recipe.I do it because if I have food in the house I would rather add it into whatever I make or else I waste it.Anyways,I read other peoples reviews as well and love it.So what I did to this recipe is I boiled my chicken first as to me putting raw food into micro or slow cooker Im not comfortable cooking with it.So,i layer my 4 chicken on bottom,sprinkle all seasoning,garlic and pepper on it.Then of course I added my red,orange,yellow and green peppers plus onions on top of chicken and baby carrots.Then I mixed mushroom soup,a little bit of water and the rest with chicken broth to make 1/2 cp then I added the cornstarch and dry onion soup.Mixed it up and then poured it on top of chicken.Cooked on slow and now Im enjoying this delicious meal...Thanks so much for the recipe..I will make it again...
I thought this was really tasty, but I did change things up a bit. There are only the 2 of us so I started out with 2 frozen, boneless, skinless chicken breasts. I browned them on both sides in a skillet with some olive oil and seasonings.(pepper, worchestershire sauce and garlic powder) I cut chicken into bitesized pieces, & then popped the cubed potatoes and chicken in the crock pot. I put the cream of mushroom soup, milk, and onion soup mix (I did not use the cornstarch)in the skillet that I had browned the chicken in and stired it until it was well blended. Poured this over the chicken and potatoes, turned the crock pot on high. Five hours later we dined on this, with peas and carrots, and light rolls. Thanks, Julia, for a great recipe!
This is a great recipe. True comfort food! I modified slightly and added Cream of Chicken soup for half the Mushroom soup and added onion slices to the chicken and potatoes. I also used Red potatoes which added a little color to the dish! It was very declicious.
My fiance and I both really enjoyed this one. It was very similar to a casserole I used to make. I did make a few changes. I used cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom, and I only put in two chicken breasts (there were only two of us eating) so there was plenty of gravy. Along with the potatoes, I added 3 cloves of garlic, carrots, broccoli, and frozen corn. It was a little soupy and the sauce needed to be stirred a bit at the end. Right before I served it, i melted a couple spoonfuls of sour cream into it... made a really hearty stew! My Fiance wanted some rice or bread to sop up the sauce thoguh. I ate it with a spoon
Well after reading the reviews and suggestions I came up with my own little version and it seemed to satisfy everyone's palate at my house. First I took some flour and added about a teaspoon of sage, some garlic powder, onion powder and just a dash of salt and pepper and dredged the chicken in that before browning it in a skillet for just a minute or two on each side. I also went with the suggestion of using water in place of the milk and only used 3/4 cup with no cornstarch. I cooked it on high for about 2 hours then cooked it on low for about 4-5 hours. The chicken was nice and tender and the potatoes were just right. The only thing I would change in this method is maybe adding some of the seasonings directly to the chicken and letting it sit in the refrigerator overnight so that the meat absorbs the flavors. To me the chicken was kind of bland in the "middle" but everyone else in my household loved it. I don't think I have much choice but to cook it again, but next time I'll do a little more experimenting to infuse the flavors into the meat. Thanks for sharing this recipe.
Loved it just made a few changes - used cream of chicken,and substituted ranch dip seasoning for onion soup mix!! The kids loved it 0_0
DH liked it. I thought it was okay, the potatos were salty from the onion soup mix. I cut the chicken breast into chunks instead of leaving them whole, added some garlic powder and I added about a cup of fat-free sour cream an hour before I served it. I didn't have cornstarch so I mixed milk and flour to thicken it. I will probably make it again, but not that often.
FOLLOWED DIRECTIONS AS SAID BUT FOR SOME REASON IT LOOKED NASTY AND MY KIDS HESITATED TO EAT IT BUT DID ANYWAYS. IT WAS OKAY THEY SAID BUT CHICKEN WAS ABIT TOO DRY. DON'T THINK I'LL GO FOR THIS RECIPE AGAIN.
Very good! I had no onion soup mix, so I "souped it up" with garlic powder, pepper, a bit of cayanne and a sliced onion. Don't let other reviews make you afraid of the milk. I actually used heavy cream and a bit of chicken stock. I used new red potatoes because they needed to be cooked, and left them whole. Perfect after 4 hours on high. Thanks, Julia!
I don't know how anyone would not like this. My husband and toddler devoured it! I used only 4 breasts, added some garlic/pepper/parsley/paprika, and omitted the cornstarch. I also added potatoes and carrots to the cooker first. I then threw in some frozen peas about an hour before serving. It was a delicious meal. I just added a salad and some bread - voila, tasted great and was easy! Since I have become a mom the slow cooker has become my very good friend, lol. Thanks for the post!
This was a very tasty recipe......family loved it. Almost like having a barbecue in the winter without having to go outside to the grill..
Wow! I was amazingly impressed. I was in a rush yesterday morning heading out to work but I wanted to throw something together for supper, so I didn't follow the quantities I just threw it all in the slow cooker along with pepper, a dash of bay leaves, cayenne pepper and parsley. And my husbnad added some shredded cheddar cheese and I swear it was the best meal I've ever made. I had it on High for about 3 hours and then on Low for another 5 or 6 and the chicken was so incredibly tender. WOW. definitely going to make that again. I ate it with the potatoes but my husband doesn't like them so he had his over rice. Delicious!
I took some of the other users tips. water instead of milk, added my own seasonings, and cream of chicken soup. Very nice, family loved
This was not to my liking...
I had company coming and wanted something in a hurry so tried this. It was okay, but I hoped it would be better. The sauce curdled and the chicken was somewhat dry. Probably would not make it again.
This recipe was very easy and tasted good. My husband liked it. The potatoes tasted great after sitting in the slow cooker all day! I cooked mine on low for 8 hours and I think maybe I could have cooked for an hour or two less. The chicken didn't even taste like chicken because it was so tender it was more like a beef stew!
I made this today and used 5 fresh chicken breasts, 2 cans Cr. Of Chicken, 1 can Cr. Of Celery, 1 pkg. onion soup mix, 1 C water. Poured over chicken cooked about 7 hrs. In slow cooker and served over rice....it was a hit,tasted good, chicken was tender, will make again. Perfect cooking time for a dinner to be done after work on a cold night!
The recipe as is was mediocre at best...the flavors just didnt blend right. Maybe next time I will use some of the other recommendations to improve it.
I think its the onion soup mix that ruined this recipe for me. I'll try something else next time if I decide to try it again.
This is a delicious recipe - I did a little changing. I used 4 chicken breasts and added a can of drained green beans (kitchen cut) and a bunch of baby carrots. I cooked it for about 8 hours on setting 2 of my slow cooker which was just a little above low. I will make this again and again as it was SUPER GOOD.
I love quick and easy, but this recipe was dull and bland. I will not make it again
Very easy & delicious. I used golden mushroom soup.
This was ok. Next time I am not sure I will add so much onion soup mix, it was pretty salty. If made again, I will add some carrots or somthing.
I did change few things. First I used hen, rather then chicken breasts, then I seasoned it with salt, pepper, garlic powder, and oldbay. Then with 3 table spoon of olive oil, I then browned the chicken on all sides, before putting to my crockpot. I added 2 large carrots and 3 cloves of garlic. I read other posts, and I too used cream of chicken. Cooked it on low for 7 hours, and it's fabulous!! I'd give it 10 stars if I could!!
i wasnt to pleased with this, i tried it just like the directions said except i used a can of water instead of milk and i used the garlic cream of mushroom soup, it really didnt have any flavor. i felt like i was eating chicken and potatos with a flavorless gravy. will not try this one again
Bland. I think this is probably a good starting recipe but it definitely needs some extras to make it good.
Very good! I cooked 4 chicken breasts on low for 7 1/2 hours. Chicken was cooked perfectly, and broke apart while serving. I served this in bowls over rice. I added 1 tablespoon of minced garlic, some paprika and parsley. Also added 1 can green beans 1 hour prior to serving. I would defiantly recommend adding a vegetable to this dish.
Bland - needs more spice! I'll definitely add a little next time.
I made this for the first time today, and my family LOVES it ! I did substitute the milk with the same amount of water, added more potatoes, and at the last 2 hours, added mixed frozen veggies... It came out like a Chicken Pie recipe would and the next time I will be adding biscuits or dumplings to the top :) I am delighted with this recipe, thanks Julia !!!!!
