Easiest Recipe Ever

I have been meaning to share the easiest recipe ever with you for some time now.  When I was first married, my friend Ileana shared this recipe with me and I have made it for so many people through the years because it is a crockpot recipe (my fave) that is perfect to have ready for company after a day out and about.  Everyone who has eaten it loves it, and is always pretty surprised how simple it is.  I have shared this recipe with many other wives and moms out there,  and it's always been a hit in their house too!  My family loves this meal and I though yours may also.

Here it is...

Take a pack of chicken breasts.  Stick them in the crockpot and season them with garlic salt.  Dump 1 can cream of chicken, 1 can cream of mushroom, and 1 can cream of celery on the chicken.  Let this cook all day on low or for 5-6 hours on high.  The chicken will be falling apart at this point.  Stir in 1 to 2 cups of grated cheddar cheese and let melt in for the last 20-30 minutes while you are preparing your sides.

That's it!!  The chicken is so tender and yummy and flavorful.  I always serve it with rice (now I often use steam in the bag rice so there is no pan to clean) and a green vegetable, and sometimes with other veggies and rolls.  As for the soups, I have used regular and reduced fat, Campbell's and generic, and it has always been good any way.


  1. this recipe sounds very familiar to me, I have done about the same things thru the yrs except not as fat free. I used to lightly flour and fry the chicken breast, remove them from the pan, drain off the fat, add the chicken back, add onions and garlic and cook until tender, then I added the cream of muchroom, cream of chicken and added enough liquid to make a nice gravy. I served it with rice or mashed pot. as a side and another side. I called it Golden Chicken. I don't cook like that anymore, just cooking for one is different. Yours sounds very good I'm going to have to try it.

  2. Ohh.. that sounds really good! I'll be writing that one down.

    Thanks for giving me the link!

    Hope you have a great week!
