Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner

I finally had my first success with the Crock Pot! I've heard so many sing its' praises, but I've struggled to make meals that we like in the Crock Pot.

So, I was excited to try this recipe my Mom sent me that has become a favorite of theirs. It was SUPER easy and very tasty!

I served it with steamed green beans and homemade rolls (from the freezer) ~ yummy!

Slow Cooker Chicken Dinner (from Taste of Home)

6 medium red potatoes, cut into chunks
4 medium carrots, cut into 1/2-inch pieces (I used baby carrots)
4 boneless skinless chicken breast halves (I used three)
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) cream of chicken soup, undiluted (my Mom reports that this substitute works just fine!)
1 can (10 3/4 oz.) cream of mushroom soup, undiluted
1/8 tsp. garlic salt
2-4 Tbsp. mashed potato flakes, optional (I did not use these)

Place potatoes and carrots in a 5-qt. slow cooker. Top with chicken. Combine the soups and garlic salt; pour over chicken. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. To thicken if desired, stir potato flakes into the gravy and cook for 30 minutes longer.

Yield: 4 servings

Glad you found a crock pot recipe you like, mine is my best "kitchen" friend! I use it at least twice a week! And most of the recipes I really like for it are from Taste of Home.

Wow, yummy!
I love my crock-pot and use it at least twice weekly, it is so nice not to have to heat up the entire kitchen.

Your chicken looks delicious!

I make a similar recipe, and in addition to what you added, I will add Rotel tomatoes (drained). My family loves it!
