I love cooking with a crock pot — it’s just so fast and easy. And quite honestly, I’m lazy a lot of the time, so I just don’t always have the energy to prepare fancy, yet laborious meals.

  1. I should have read the comments before I follow these instructions! Please do not do this recipe it is the worst! I never post negative comments about anything; however, this recipe is awful! I followed the directions to the note… And the food came out wishy and it burned my pot all the way around. I am not a professional cook by any means of imagination, that’s why I count on accurate recipes! Even my inexperience as a cook New better than to cook with so little liquid in the pot… But I gave this recepie the benefit of doubt.

  2. I took the advice and added chicken stock. I also added some turkey bacon and half of a ranch dressing mix packet. It cooked in about three hours and was delicious!

    Sorry but this recipe needs some revision! It burned and some noodles were mushy and some were not cooked! Very disappointed!!

  4. I have made a lot of weight watcher recipes but this is by far THE worst ever! I followed the directions and my elbows became mush causing the dish to taste like a super-starchy chicken & dumpling type stew. It was inedible and I had to order pizza for my kiddos while I ate a salad — boo-hiss!!!
    Plus it is 9 pointsplus per serving.

  5. I made this tonight and it was OK. I used Kristin O's suggestions and added chicken stock and stirred a couple of times. I also added some shallot pepper to try and add some flavor. This was done in about 3 hours and had I cooked it any longer, the chicken would have been really dry (it was somewhat dry already). My husband liked it, my 9 year old liked it but didn't like the mushrooms and my 3 year old ate it. Oh, I did double the sour cream but didn't double the soup because I didn't have another can. :-)

    I made this today…after reading some of the reviews, I doubled the soup and sour cream. I also added chicken stock throughout the day and stirred it quite often. After 4 hours, I added frozen zucchini and also used fresh mushrooms. My husband said it tasted like chicken and dumplings….I thought with the few modifications, it is delicious!

  7. I tried this recipe & it was TERRIBLE! I think it would have tasted really good…but it HAS to be missing some liquid. Chicken stock perhaps? It completely burned all around the sides with my crock pot on the lowest setting (10 hours)….any ideas???

  8. If I dont put the mushrooms in this recipe will it take off any points? i cant eat mushrooms but the rest sounds great. thanks

    • Unfortunately, taking out the mushrooms wont remove any Points. But you can always substitute the mushrooms with another veggie….try asparagus or zucchini!
