"I made with boneless, skinless chicken breasts cubes. No need to brown the chicken. Substituted with cream of chicken soup but still used cream of celery soup. Served over seasoned mashed potatoes. Not a big slow cooker fan but this may just change my mind some. It was really good with tons of flavor."
