This slow cooker chicken dish is all about convenience. The combination of condensed soups makes a tasty sauce that is delicious served with the chicken, and it can be dressed up with some fresh herbs and extra shredded cheese.

Parsley or chives would add extra color to the dish.  Chopped pimientos or finely chopped bell pepper would be good as well. Or top the chicken with shredded cheddar cheese just before it's done. Take a look at some other ideas in the tips and variations below the instructions.

Serve the chicken and sauce with hot cooked rice, noodles, or potatoes. Add a tossed salad for a satisfying family meal.

Ingredients

  • 3 boneless chicken breasts (cut into 6 halves)
  • dash kosher salt (or to taste)

  • 1/4 teaspoon garlic powder, or to taste
  • 2 cans (10 3/4 ounces each) condensed cream of chicken soup (or cream of chicken with herbs)
  • 1 can (10 3/4 ounces) condensed cheddar cheese soup
  • Optional: 1/2 cup cheddar cheese (shredded, or grated Parmesan)
  • Optional: 1/4 cup fresh chopped parsley
