Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner

I love using my slow cooker because it's so convenient. This meal-in-one, which includes juicy chicken and tasty veggies in a creamy sauce, is ready to eat when I get home from the office. —Jenet Cattar, Neptune Beach, Florida

    This was completely disgusting! It tasted like paste. We threw it away and made grilled cheese and tomato soup!

    I love this dinner because it's easy to make. The kids eat it all with no left overs. To have my whole family sit down together with no complaint over what is on their plate is a hard task and this meal makes it happen.

    I thought this dish was OK. I felt like it needed a little more flavor. The chicken was very tender though. My family (husband and kids) didn’t care for it that much. I didn’t mind it but again could of used a bit more flavor. I actually added some season salt and pepper to my chicken and I still felt like it could of used more seasoning. Probably won’t make again just bc my family wasn’t into it.

    This was amazing. The chicken was so tender it just fell apart. Was more like chicken stew, which was fine. Flavor was excellent. I added an extra can of cream of chicken soup. Will make again and again.

    We really liked this recipe. The chicken was so tender, we didn't even have to use a knife to cut it. The soups make a perfect gravy. Definitely a keeper.

    This is a great recipe! I added one onion cut into wedges. You can change up the soup flavors easily to suit your preferences.

    I'm usually one to agree with most reviewers on this site, but for this one I have to disagree. I made it exactly as written - chicken was very tender as were the veggies - but the flavor of the whole dish was simply, bland. Much more bland than I anticipated. My 1yo son ate it up; Mommy and Daddy chose to eat something else after a small taste.

    I saw this recipe and thought I'd try it since I was having a busy grandbaby day. We're not fond of cooked carrots, so I only put two chopped carrots in. Didn't have chicken breasts so I used chicken tenders. Put my tenders in frozen and cooked on high for one hour. It was done in five hours and very tender and flavorful. Grandbaby gobbled it up and wanted more! Very easy and good recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    Great recipe! I happened to have Italian seasoned chicken breasts on hand, so I used them. I added a small chopped onion, salt and pepper. The chicken was so tender after about 6 hours it was falling apart, so I just shredded it into large pieces, and it ended up being like a chicken stew! Delish!
