    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!

    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?

    Thanks for this recipe, my 15 month old devoured it and he’s been in an “I don’t want to eat anything” phase!

      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.

    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?

    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!

    I’m making this for my family with little ones. Is there anything I could substitute the Cajun seasoning for? Looks great!

    Savanah says:

    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?

      Agnes says:

      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.

    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.

    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

    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!

    Shawn Rich says:

    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.

    Anna says:

    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!

    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!
