Kickin' Creamy Chicken Stew in a Slow Cooker

READY IN: 4hrs 5mins
Recipe by Annacia

For this recipe I use frozen chicken tenders or chicken breasts (yes, frozen) in my slow cooker. This is a good recipe to substitute beans, veggies, etc. and make it the way you want. This will make 10 "healthy" servings (thats 1/2 a chicken breast) so judge your servings on your families appitite.

This was good! Kind of like my chicken tortilla soup minus the tortillas. I had 12 tenders and 1 chicken breast. I added a little red pepper. When it was done, we ate like soup with cheese and sir racha on top.

Ingredients Nutrition


  1. Place frozen chicken breasts or tenders in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Add remaining ingredients except cream cheese.
  3. Cook on high for 4-5 hours (less if chicken isn't frozen).
  4. At this point I remove about 1/2 the liquid because I like my sauce thick, like a stew.
  5. You can leave all the liquid if you want a soup.
  6. Add cream cheese, cook on warm setting for 30 minutes, then stir.
  7. This can be served over rice or wrapped in flour tortillas.
  8. One healthy serving is 1/2 a breast or 2 large chicken tenders.
