{slow cooker} Sour Cream Chicken



Here's another oldie but goodie that I dusted off from the archives. This amazing crock pot dish is brought to you by my mama. I still remember the first time she made it. We were newly weds and came home for the weekend to visit. There were all eight of my siblings and a warm pot of this waiting for us when we got there. It felt good to be home. After all these years this dish is still a favorite and I think of her every time I make it. Love the flavor, love the easy crockpot meals and love that my kids can't get enough of it. And I love that mom of mine too.

2-4 chicken breasts
*1 can cream of chicken soup
½ c mayo
½ pint sour cream
1 cup cheese
1 tsp lemon juice
salt and fresh cracked pepper (to taste)

Place chicken, cream of chicken soup (or substitute), lemon juice, salt and pepper in crockpot and cook on low 5-6 hrs. During the last hour of cooking time, shred chicken then add mayo, sour cream and cheese. Serve over rice, sprinkle with shredded cheese and season with salt and pepper.

*I substitute the cream of chicken soup with 2 Tbs butter, 2 Tbs flour, 1 C milk, 1 tsp chicken bouillon. Melt the butter, whisk in the flour and stir for a minute. Whisk in milk and bouillon and continue stirring until thickened then pour over chicken in the crockpot

This is one of our favorites from mom too! I haven't been on here for a while (I haven't been cooking either for a while). You have some yummy new recipes I want to try. I just have to tell you how impressed I am with your food pictures. I can always tell which recipes you post because they have the best pictures with them. You make the food look so yummy (not that I think it wouldn't be good). Nice skills.

Hi, there! Just found this recipe on Pinterest and was wondering if you put the chicken in the crock pot raw or it you cook it first.

Thanks ahead of time! This recipe sounds amazing!
