Ingredients

  • 3 slices of bacon crisply cooked, crumbled and drippings reserved
  • 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 oz can sliced mushrooms drained
  • 10.75 oz can cream of chicken soup
  • 6 slices of swiss cheese

Instructions

  • Pour your reserved bacon grease in a skillet and heat up over medium heat
  • Place your chicken breasts in the warmed grease and cook for 3-5 minutes until slightly golden (turning once)
  • Spray your crock pot with cooking spray
  • Put your chicken in your crock pot
  • Cover with your mushrooms
  • Pour your soup in your skillet, warm through, then pour over your chicken
  • Cover and cook on low for 4-5 hours, check with a meat thermometer to know when the chicken is done
  • Place a slice of Swiss on top of each chicken breast, sprinkle with bacon, turn heat up to high and cover and cook for 10-15 minutes more until the cheese is melted

Notes

  • This recipe is from Gooseberry Patch’s Everyday Slow Cooker
  • I used Cera ( my 6 Quart Crock Pot with Ceramic Coated Pot) for this one. I like to use a non-stick pot when I'm working with cheese to make clean up a snap. Your favorite 5-6 quart crock pot will work just fine. :)
  • We love cooking with meat thermometers to ensure the that our chicken is done but not overdone.
  • As with any of our recipes, calorie counts and nutritional information varies greatly depending on which products you choose to use when cooking this dish.
  • All slow cookers cook differently, so cooking times are always a basic guideline and should always be tested first in your own slow cooker and time adjusted as needed.
