From Linda Larsen, Your Guide to Busy Cooks @ about.com. This sounds sooo good! You can substitute different types of cheese and different flavors of condensed soup to change the flavor of this easy slow cooker recipe.

What a very nice and easy dinner, you would think you had spent a long time in the kitchen preparing and making this, you could serve this at a dinner party or every day it is just wonderful. I cooked mine on high as I was short of time for about two hours, and cut the recipe in half. I also used a recipe here on zaar cream of substitute and just mixed it with water then cooked it in the skillet and poured on top of the chicken, also I had to reheat DH's later and you would never of known it hadn't been made right that moment. This is a recipe that I think I will use regularly it's just so forgiving. thank you so much for this. Made for Honor thy Mother, the diabetic forum May 2011. Oh I should like to add the taste was amazing, I would give it ten if I could.
Loved it! I must admit, about two hours in I was really worried as it still smelled (and looked) like plain old cream of chicken soup. But, two hours later, the sauce had mellowed and thinned. Very easy, and very tasty. I served mine with chicken & herb rice.
