If you are looking for a really flavorful yet super simple recipe for dinner then I urge you to give this recipe for Chicken Cordon Bleu made in the slow cooker a try. It was a HUGE hit with the family and I was told by all to put this in the “cook again” recipe file.
The only thing I would have done differently in this recipe is use smaller chicken breasts. The ones I used were HUGE and were a bit much to eat. If you look at the picture you can see that these were some big chicken breasts!
I know that many people shirk at recipes that call for “cream of” soups, but I find that there are times that it is worth using them. Chicken is one of those meats that just does not get more tender the more you cook it in the crock-pot. It just gets drier. The key to cooking chicken in the crock-pot is to cook it with liquid, and this cream of chicken soup & milk mixture does the trick there, and then make sure you don’t overcook your chicken. I would check chicken at the lower point of the time range given and only cook longer if your chicken is not cooked through. But it really should be.
