This was a simple meal and the family enjoyed it. I doubled the ingredients and added some sliced celery. The canned soup needed milk added to make it creamier as it looked the same sitting on the top when it was done. I added the milk, stirred it in and it improved the creaminess. I will add 1 can of milk to the 2 cans of soup next time. It had very good flavor and the was easy to make. A plus for my busy life style.
I doubled this recipe, and used 1 can cream of chicken, and one can cream of celery. Excellent. My whole family loved it, and so easy. I was worried that the veggies on the bottom would burn, but it all came out perfectly done! I also got mine in too late to wait 6 hrs, so I did 3 hrs on low, and 1 hr on high. This is a new regular at our house!
I made this stew with the following modifications: I added some red bel pepper, zucchini and a can of cream of celery along with the recommended cream of chicken. I saute the veggies before adding them in my crockpot just to bring out their flavor. I also cut the chicken into bite size pieces and sauteed it for just a few seconds in a hot pan with McCormicks chicken seasoning salt and pepper and threw it all in the crock pot! It was awesome!! I love the flavor of this stew. I will be making this time and time again! Thanks for posting this recipe!
