Preparation time is 15 min
  • 1 pound · Chicken breasts, bite-sized pieces
  • 1 can · Cream of chicken soup
  • ½ cup · Hot sauce, like for buffalo wings

    Season chicken with salt and pepper and put in crockpot.

  • 6 
    Stir well and serve!

This recipe was simple enough.  When I tested this, I had night class, so I had the chicken, soup, and hot sauce in the pot cooking for the husband.  I mixed the cheeses and sour cream in a bowl and put it in the fridge so that he'd just have to dump the bowl in the crockpot once the chicken was done cooking.  With the chicken in smaller chunks, I reduced the cooking time to low for 3.5 hours, which he said was good.  

He sent me a text in class after he added the pasta and had dinner with the kids.  He even took pictures of the finished dish for me! :)

Verdict: Another hit! The kids actually really loved the flavors of the sauce!  The mister mentioned that it could probably work as a dip as well if shredded chicken was used, maybe throw in some beans of course no noodles.  He wants to experiment with that now that it's football season. :)  I think this one is going into the recipe book now!
