With just 4 ingredients, this Easy Crock pot Chicken couldn't be Easier! Cooking the meal in a single pot reduces washing up, and the low cooking temperature and glazed pot make cleaning it very easy.

INGREDIENTS:

  • 3 whole boneless chicken breasts
  • 2 cans cream chicken soup (just the soup, not the water, it will come later)
  • 1 can cheddar cheese soup (just the soup, not the water, it will come later)
  • 2 soup cans of water.

DIRECTIONS:
  1. Remove all fat and skin from chicken; rinse and pat dry, sprinkle with salt, pepper and garlic powder.
  2. Put in crock pot and add the three soups straight from the cans.
  3. Cook on low all day (at least 8 hours) do not lift the lid. Serve over rice or noodles.

 

General Cooking Tips When Cooking With A Crock Pot

 

  • When you are cooking with a crock pot the key is to let it cook uninterrupted (no lifting the lid). When you lift the lid to check the food you lose valuable heat and moisture. With crock pot cooking you can also reduce time by using the high setting and cutting the time in half then adding one hour. Example with this recipe, it calls for 8 hours of "Low" temp cook time. You can reduce it to 4 to 5 hours cook time on the "High" temp setting.
  • When cooking with a Crock Pot, only fill the bowl to two thirds full, If you fill it fuller than that the food will not cook properly. Just make sure that what you want to cook is not more than 2/3 of the bowl or you may need to adjust the recipe or get a larger crock pot.
  • Be sure to remove as much skin and fat from the meat you will be cooking. The fats in the food will melt with long cook times and can add an unpleasant texture to the dish.
  • When a recipe gives you directions of what goes into the crock pot first, follow those directions. Meats typically cook faster than vegetables, so the vegetables should be placed under the meat.
  • If you feel a need to lift the lid and check the food or stir, then you may need to increase the cook time by 15 to 30 minutes for each time you lift the lid.
