Creamy Chicken Thighs & Noodles

I love recipes that you can just throw into the slow cooker and let it do all the work. This easy chicken dinner is one of my favorites. —Christina Petri, Alexandria, Minnesota

    Tried this today and it was very easy to put together and I really enjoyed it. I followed the recipe exactly. I don’t think it needs to be cooked for quite as long as the recipe says. Next time I will sauté some mushrooms to add because I think that would enhance the flavor, but there will be a next time!

    Has anybody tried this with bone-in thighs?

    I will definitely be making this again. It is fast and easy to put together. The spiciness/heat is just right for me. I used boneless chicken breasts, as that is what I had on hand. I also sprinkled ground white pepper on the chicken. I put some of the sauce mix on the bottom of the crock pot then put the chicken in and piled on the rest of the soup mix. I put it on high for about 3 1/2 hours. Turned out tender and moist.

    I have made this recipe numerous times without ever needing to change it. It works with chicken thighs and boneless skinless chicken breasts. It tastes great on its own or over potatoes, rice, or noodles. One thing that is important to remember for the recipe though is to make sure you get good paprika! When choosing paprika, trying sniffing it. It should have a rich aroma.

    This recipe was SO good! During this "stay home" time in our lives, it was ever so appreciated and delicious! We got re-acquainted with our crockpot in the bargain. We served with cheddar cheese biscuits. It's a real "comfort food" keeper! ??????

    WOW! This was just delicious. Spent the day out on the lake and came home to this in the crockpot and served it over mashed potatoes. My husband is not a big chicken eater but by bite two, he said, "You can make this any time!" I didn't change a thing. Delish!

    Fantastic! I will definitely be making this again! I am not one to measure too much when it comes to cooking, I just eye-ball it. The chicken was full of flavor and fell to pieces when it was stirred. YUMMY!
