Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken

Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken: Just 5 ingredients for this easy-cheesy chicken!

Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken from Table for Seven

This is a recipe that was originally shared here on the blog back in 2012. It’s one of the most popular recipes here and one of our most frequent chicken recipes at the dinner table.

I wanted to re-share for a few reasons: first, it’s a delicious chicken, very easy to put together and just has to be re-shared.

I mean, what if you missed it?! 😲

Very possible.

Second, I’ve changed it up a bit since first posting. Not any majors changes, but, a few.

Pacific Cream of Chicken Soup

The cream of chicken soup has changed. There is a bit more in this recipe. By the way, if you are looking for a good, store bought condensed cream of chicken soup with no junky chemicals, I use the above brand. No paid endorsement here! I just really like it. Of course, there is always the homemade possibility too. Whatever works for you best.

There also has been the removal of the canned cheese soup and it’s been replaced with real cheese. Real cheese is just better, right? Other than that, it’s just about the same.

Crock Pot Cheesy Chicken is easy, cheesy and oh, so, yummy.. Serve with rice or noodles to complete your dinner!

I hope you enjoy it as much as we do!

I don't have a crock pot but I do have a slow cooker. What temperature is the low setting and what temp is the high setting? I would love to try some of these recipes but I never could find the conversion temperatures. Thank you

A slow cooker is the same as a Crock Pot. Crock Pot is simply a brand name for slow cooker. It's just a personal preference. So, dig into a few recipes and enjoy :)

Can you use frozen chicken breasts?


Saturday 23rd of February 2013

Hi Lisa- Yes, frozen would be ok. You may just need to keep an eye on it and cook a little bit longer.

Wow! Sounds amazing Robin! Glad it worked out so well :)

Do you cube the chicken before putting it in the pot?


Saturday 16th of February 2013

Nope. Just place raw chicken breasts in whole. You can cube/cut/shred (whatever your preference) once it is cooked. You can also leave them whole if you wish.
