Crock pot recipes are one of the easiest ways to cook and my favorite way to save time in the kitchen. My crock pot cheesy chicken is to die for and the flavor is outstanding. Each bite is loaded with cheese, super flavorful and creamy.
Smelling this crock pot cheesy chicken as it cooked throughout the night was amazing. One thing I always do is throw my meals together at night so they are ready for pics by late morning.
This crock pot cheesy chicken recipe is adapted from a very wonderful lady I met while we were waiting for our patient to arrive home last week. As you know, I’m a hospice admissions RN and with my job I meet the most wonderful patients and families. On this night as we were waiting, my new friend, showed me her family pictures that were covering the walls of her wonderful family, her husband and all of her children and grandchildren. What beautiful pictures. Some very old, some recent and my favorite was a silhouette picture of her and her husband. While we were waiting, we started talking food. You know, I’m totally in heaven now. Food? Oh yeah, right up my alley.
My new friend was telling me all about her wonderful meals that she makes and her favorite recipes. Her buttermilk pancakes sounded absolutely delicious. As we were talking, I shared with her how my niece, Holli, won Hell’s Kitchen Season 7 and how Holli always knew she wanted to be a chef from just a young child (I’m so proud of her). Anyway, we continued chatting about different foods, our favorites and our specialties we make. The recipe is not the exact recipe she told me about because I didn’t have some of the ingredients she recommended. However, I will be making her recipe at a later time exactly as it was shared with me.
But in the meantime, this crock pot cheesy chicken meal is one that will be made over and over, it’s that good! Because the chicken is so moist and tender, trying to get wonderful pics was a bit difficult. Trust me when I say, even though the pics look a little messy, this crock pot cheesy chicken is so delicious.
This crock pot cheesy chicken would be great served over a bed of rice too. Also, stuffed into a flour tortilla to make a delicious tasting burrito would be tasty. I know what we are having for dinner tonight. Yum!
Ready for a delicious meal? Then this is it. You and your family will love this delicious crock pot cheesy chicken dinner.

*I have received some comments that there is too much liquid with this recipe. I’m thinking that might be due to the size of the chicken breast. I used larger size chicken breasts in this recipe. However I have decreased the amount of the chicken broth to 1 cup. If you feel like there is too much liquid, remove the chicken and then continue cooking the sauce, uncovered, on high until the desired consistency is reached.
