This recipe is super easy, it tastes like an Alfredo, so kids and adults all enjoy! I find that I tend to use more bacon than what the recipe calls for, just a little FYI.
- 2 tablespoons bacon bits
- 1 teaspoon instant minced garlic
- 1 (1 ounce) package hidden valley ranch dressing mix
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 1 cup sour cream
- 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- egg noodles, Prepared
- Combine the first 5 ingredients.
- Pour over chicken in slow cooker.
- Cook 3-4 hours on high, or until chicken is done.
- Serve over hot noodles.
When I started to make this I didn't have time to put it in the slow cooker, however I made it how the recipe states but baked it at 400 for about 40 min-covered with foil. It turned out very good, and my partner who is fussy loved it. I thought it was salty so I think next time I make it I will use ranch dressing in place of ranch envelope and sour cream. Over all it's a keeper! Yum!
We do an easy twist on this recipe. Use Alfredo sauce in the jar (Classico). Add the bacon to the sauce and cook in the slow cooker. The other two flavors we use are Pesto Chicken Alfredo & Chipotle Chicken Alfredo. Buy pesto in the jar & start with a couple Tb or until you get a flavor & texture you like. I keep a jar of Chipotle paste in the frig. Puree a can of chipotles in adobo until smooth. Again, start with a couple Tb & add more until it becomes a nice rose color. Taste & add more if desired. Use chicken tenderloins and cook in crockpot for about 2 hours or until chicken juice is no longer pink. Yummy over pasta - try orzo.
This was very good. I made a few minor changes: I added more bacon than suggested, since our family loves bacon. I also added more garlic, since more garlic always makes things better. And I used homemade buttermilk ranch seasoning mix http://www.food.com/recipe/ranch-dressing-and-seasoning-mix-47249 (about 1 T) instead of the package mix. After cooking on low for 5 1/2 hours, the chicken was falling apart. I shredded it up and added a little more sour cream right before serving it over egg noodles. The whole family liked it! Thanks, Amanda!
