Crockpot Bacon and Sour Cream Chicken

 

 

As with any crockpot recipe, the meat cooks up super tender and moist. The chicken gets a wonderful smokiness from the bacon that wraps around it. A mixture of sour cream and condensed soups produces a copious amount of extra thick and creamy sauce. It’s wonderful served over some egg noodles. It would also be good over rice or mashed potatoes.

Since this recipe is so filling, I typically serve it with a green salad, steamed green beans or peas. Broccoli would be good with it too.

It takes a little prep work up front, partially cooking some bacon and sautéing some onions for a few minutes. But you can still get it prepped and ready to go in about 10 minutes. And it will free up that precious evening time when it seems there’s a million other things to do.

Recipe Tips:

You’ll need 2 cans of condensed soup. I use one can of condensed chicken soup and one of condensed cheddar soup. Condensed cream of mushroom soup would work instead of chicken. Or you could use 2 cans of condensed chicken soup and then add a little shredded cheddar cheese at the end for some cheese flavor. I’m a big believer in adapting recipes to use what you have on hand.

Ingredients

  • 8 bacon slices
  • 1/3 cup diced onion
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 (10-ounce) can cream of chicken soup
  • 1 (10-ounce) can Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • 1/3 cup flour
  • 1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
  • salt and pepper to taste

Instructions

  • Cut each chicken breast in half so that you have two long and narrow chicken tender shape pieces.
  • Place bacon in a large skillet and cook over medium heat until about halfway cooked. You want some of the fat to cook off, but the bacon to still be pliable.
  • Immediately wrap a slice of bacon around each chicken piece while the bacon is still pliable. Place in crockpot.
  • Add onion to skillet and cook in bacon fat for 2 minutes. Remove with a slotted spoon and place in crockpot.
  • In a medium bowl, whisk together both soups, sour cream, flour, and garlic powder. Pour over chicken.
  • Cover crockpot and cook on low for 5-6 hours, until chicken is completely done.
  • Remove chicken from crockpot and place on a serving platter. Whisk the sauce well and taste for seasoning. Add salt and pepper to taste.
  • Serve over rice, egg noodles, or mashed potatoes.

  1. So disappointed bc the pics looked amazing. What I did: 3 Qt slow cooker, stacked and layered 4 chicken thighs,onions, sauce, and repeat. Cooked perfectly on high 3 hours like she recommended. I checked internal temp. I was surprised it was bland despite the bacon and had a thin sauce despite the flour. I wanted to ladle a thicker sauce over the chicken to be like an alfredo but it was really thin like a broth. I also didn’t like the soggy limp texture of the bacon that reverted back to looking raw having been soaking in the sauce for hours despite partially cooking it before wrapping the chicken. Changes? I would reserve fully cooked bacon till the end and lay on top of the chicken once plated. Add the bacon fat in the pot for bacon flavor? Add more onions and garlic . Use either less sour cream or cream of chicken so more of the cheddar flavor comes through. Anyway, there was 1 cup of extra sauce that I didn’t use. I just don’t know how to get a thicker cheesier tasting sauce. Hoping sauce will thicken overnight as a leftover and taste better tomorrow.

  2. Don’t see the point in writing what these recipes LOOK like. We can see that for ourselves. Just post comments after making it so you can comment on how it tastes. Makes more sense to me

  3. I love all the ingredients but I wouldn’t describe them as “inexpensive”. Not in Toronto, they’re not!! This is appx. a $20 meal. Not Kraft Dinner inexpensive anyway 😀

  4. This looks fantastic Christin! I am always looking for new chicken crockpot meals and this one sounds like a winner. I love the sound of sour cream and bacon together and it looks so good over the egg noodles 🙂
