    Hello! I have made this several times with the cans of condensed soup and the family loves it! My question is about your homemade cheese sauce. If going the homemade route, are the quantities in this recipe made to substitute both the cream of chicken and the cheddar soup cans?? Thanks!

  2. Anna

    Hi, I am making this meal right now. I am just not clear on what to do with the one cup of shredded cheese? Do you put it in while the chicken is cooking, or after with the broccoli and sour cream. Thanks!

  3. Shawn Rich

    The recipe is kind of confusing as to when you add the cheese. Is it at the start or at the end? In the instructions it says sprinkle with cheese if desired.

  4. Dana

    Hi! I just found this recipe…just to be clear…if I make my own cheese sauce, I add it at the end after the chicken has cooked?
    Thank you!

  5. Lauren

    The recipie was delicious but when I made it it was really soupy. I feel like I missed a step but I went step by step. Is there a way I could thicken it up?

  6. Amy W

    I made this Crockpot meal for dinner tonight.. Yummy It hit the spot on a semi cool night in Maine.. I didn’t have cream of chicken soup so I used cream of mushroom soup and also I didn’t have chicken broth, all I had was beef broth so I used that. It was a crowd pleasure for sure.. Thanks for sharing

  7. Jen

    Would recommend only cooking on high. I tried to do the 6 hours on low and my chicken was no where near fully cooked. Had to turn on high for another 2 hours… Which means I had some hungry family wait for chicken to cook.

  8. Savanah

    I saw Sarah’s and a few others comments about it being watery. Mine was too! When you add the soup- are you adding the 1 can of water since it is condensed soup or is that why you add the chicken broth? Just curious because I think maybe that has something to do with it?

    Thanks!

      I haven’t made this yet, but i think normally when using condensed soup as an ingredient, you just use the soup itself, without the added water.

  9. Nerisa

    I just made this today, and the whole fam loved it! (That’s hard to do!) it was delicious, and soo easy. Much better than throwing a frozen pizza in the oven last minute, haha! Thank you! I’ll definitely be using this recipe again and again. Yum!

  10. Great goods from you, man. I have be mindful your stuff prior to and you’re simply
    extremely wonderful. I actually like what you’ve received right here, really like what you are saying and the way in which by which you
    are saying it. You are making it enjoyable and you continue to care for to stay it sensible.
    I cant wait to learn much more from you. This is really a wonderful website.

    Can this recipe be frozen for use later? I know my daughter and son in law would love it and I am making freezer meals for them. Their 1st baby is due in 4 weeks!

  12. Lyn R.

    Hi. Just saw this on Pinterest. Looks so good and I’d really like to make it, but can it be made without using 1 can of cheddar soup? Could I just add shredded cheddar cheese instead, do you think- or maybe just use 2 cans of cream of chicken and throw in some shredded cheddar instead? I’m thinking it’ll work, but I’d like your opinion. Do you think it’s the cheddar soup that “makes” it?

  13. Doug

    This looks so good and I was in a rush to get started on this and I stirred in half the sour cream in with the soups. Will it be ok?

    1. Oh I hate that phase. My 17 month old occasionally spits out something he’s had before. I think he hates the texture. We caught on that he eats more when doing it himself. Glad yours liked it.

  14. Rose Reid

    I made this tonight and mine turned out thin. Might need to cut back on the chicken broth. Also, when I put the sour cream in it didnt seem like it melted all the way. I can still see it in the sauce. Is it suppose to do this?

  15. April

    I have all the ingredients I the crock pot for dinner tonight. It looks great! However, I wish you would have edited your ingredient list to reflect your correction in the comments. It want until after I bought and used two extra 10oz cans of soups to make the 14oz that I saw your comment about 14oz being incorrect. It would have saved me money and wasted food had you corrected the recipe.

    Anyway, hope this is as good as it looks!

  16. Oh My Gosh!! I Am In Love With This I Found It On Pinterest And Gahh It Tastes Soo good Thank You Thank you For sharing It with Us!Just Made It Today…And I’m Already Sharing It With others…Mainly My Mom!

  17. I just made this delicious meal! However mine was quite watery! I followed the steps word for word and I guess I thought maybe it would be thicker. Is this something that other people have experienced also?

    1. I went through the comments briefly to see if other experienced this and couldn’t find any. I’m going to remake this as it’s been awhile so look out for an update in the post. 🙂

  18. Antoinette

    This might be a silly question as I don’t use my slow cooker all that often, but do u have to cook chicken before placing it in or just raw? It seems too easy. Lol thanks

  19. Tricia

    I recently came across this recipe on pinterest. The only way to get my 2 toddlers to eat veggies is to mix them with meat and cheese. This recipe sounds perfect for them! I plan on making it tonight. Can I put the chicken in frozen or is it best to be defrosted?

  20. Chelsea

    All I have are thighs. Could I use those and just take Em out and peel the meet off when they’re done? If so, would I leve skin on or off?

  21. Kenda

    I tried this last night and my bunch really liked it. I used normandy blend veggies instead of just broccoli. I also added peas. At the end my sauce was REALLY thin so next time I will cut back on the broth. I added Velveeta to thicken it up a bit. We ate it over brown rice…but I think it would also be good over a biscuit:) Will definitely keep this one in our rotation.

  22. Melissa C

    I was curious if I could turn this into a freezer meal recipe. Just leave out the broccoli and sour cream till it’s time to add it. Well now that I type this I think i’m just gonna give it a shot and see how it fairs. -crossing fingers-

  23. Lexia

    Is there any way I could do this in the oven? My crockpot recently broke, and this recipe looks TOO good to not try tomorrow night!

  24. Megan

    Hi! I tried your recipe today and I altered it just a bit. I used frozen chicken (ahh laziness!) and I also used just 2 ounces extra of chicken broth. I loved it soooo much. Im sharing it with… well.. everyone I know!

  25. Jenae

    It’s cooking in the crock pot now! I can’t wait until dinner… It smells soo good! Thanks for sharing your recipe 🙂

  26. Brenda

    It’s in my crockpot right now. Looks and smells great. I think the leftovers will be wonderful wrapped in a cresaunt in mini muffin pan… 🙂 thanks for the recipe. can’t wait to eat it.

  27. Jenny

    Hi Demarcus Family,
    I think that was a typo on my part. Just use the 10 oz can. I just use Campbells. Hope you enjoy!

  28. The DeMarcus Family

    I followed a link to your blog and I am glad I did, everything looks so delicious! I went and bought the ingredients for this, but I could obly find 10 3/4 ounce soup cans ( or 32 ounce) no 14… Which brand do you use?

  29. Anonymous

    Made this for Friday night and it was so yummy!!!! That’s was I had for lunch yesterday as well!! You are the best! I’ve got the Buttery Cinnabun Cake in the oven right now. Keep the recipes coming!!!!!

    I’ve asked for a new crockpot for Christmas (mine is tiny, plus I want a programmable one!) so I am looking for all kinds of crockpot recipes. This sounds great!

  31. Indy Daleys

    Just wanted to thank you for all your yummy recipes. I’m not quite sure how I ran across your blog, but I am sure glad that I did! We share the same faith, and the same love of food…only you’re a better cook! So thanks!

    Emiline,
    Now I’m worried I’ve been spelling broccoli wrong! I hope I’ve got it right, I never spell checked it!

    I don’t use my crockpot that often, but when I do I always enjoy the food!!

    Kameron,
    Hope you like this dish. My family went nuts for it. Glad you utilize your crockpot. I agree, chicken is the best in the crockpot. Enjoy!! Let me know how it turns out.

    1. Elizabeth

      I could only fine the cream soups in that size can, condensed. Is that what the recipe requires, or do I have to dilute it?

  33. kameron

    Okay, this is going into my crockpot for tonight’s dinner. I LOVE my crockpot – I use it at least 3 times a week, if only to cook chicken. It’s really the only way I like my chicken cooked – so tender and yummy. Thanks, Jenny!

  34. Emiline

    I love broccoli! But I can ever seem to spell it right. I had to look over to the left, to check my spelling.
    Maybe I should invest in a crockpot, because there really are lots of things you can cook in it.
