Sour Cream and Bacon Crockpot Chicken- Chicken breasts wrapped in bacon and slow cooked in a mixture of sour cream, cream of chicken soup, and Cheddar Cheese soup. This crockpot chicken is super easy and only requires a few inexpensive ingredients.
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.
Wrap the partially cooked bacon around the chicken.
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.
Stir together the remaining ingredients and place on top of the chicken.
Set your slow cooker to cook on LOW for 5 to 6 hours and you have an amazing meal ready to be served up.
