I enjoyed it, but found it needed a little more flavour with spices. Not bad. I will cook it again, maybe in the fall!

In the reviews, it was mentioned to use two cans of soup which I did, but one of them I thought was Cream of Chicken was Creamy Onion. This turned out great and my husband loved it. A keeper and EASY!

Simple to put together with tasty results. I ended up seasoning with a bit more salt and pepper after tasting it.

This was my first time making and eating chicken a la king and I loved it! I took the advice of some other reviews and used 2 cans of cream of chicken soup and there was a perfect amount of sauce. I also used mixed veggies instead of peas. So easy and I Will make again!

Great Weeknight Dinner. I used mixed frozen veggies, insted of just peas. I also left out the green peppers (too strong a flavor for me) and added a little chicken broth as the sauce was really thick. My crockpot only took 6 hours to cook. Nice and warm on a cold night.

Just like Mom's only easier because of the slow cooker.

Although tasty, it had more of a stew-like consistency, than the thick chicken a la king I remember from childhood. My husband and I actually liked it better the 2nd day after it had thickened some.

This is really good. I made some changes to reduce the fat/calories a bit. I use the 98%FF cream of chicken and a little less chicken with more veggies. I use frozen peas and carrots and add about a tsp. of garlic powder. I love slow cooker meals and this one turns out great every time.

Although easy to make, the flavor is very bland (needs more spices), the chicken was dry and the sauce was watery until I added cornstarch. Will not make again!

I agree with the other reviews that cooking 7 hrs is too long and this does not make six servings. It was easy to prepare.
