Submitted by: FORTYNINERMOMMY

Introduction

a veggie filled, chicken version of mac-n-cheese a veggie filled, chicken version of mac-n-cheese
Number of Servings: 8

Ingredients

    1 can cream of mushroom soup (low fat preferred -- fat free falls apart in this recipe)

    1 can cheese soup

    1 can cream of onion (low fat preferred -- can be replaced with cream of celery or chicken if preferred)

    1 pound of chicken breasts

    8oz sour cream (low fat is prefered)

    1 pound any pasta shape

    1 package frozen veggies (we prefer cauliflower but any can be used -- broccolli blends work well also)

Directions

in crockpot mix the soups together. place chicken in soup mixture, making sure they are well covered.

cook in crockpot for 6-8 hours. chicken will fall apart when done.

once chicken is done cooking, mix sour cream into the sauce. let thicken with heat off.

cook pasta according to package directions. add frozen veggies into the pasta water and cook at same time. drain.

place pasta/veggie mixture back into large pot. add chicken and sauce on top of pasta. mix together so pasta is covered and chicken is shredded.

may add shredded cheese on top to serve, or a dollop of sour cream if desired.

makes approximately 8 servings, depending on the type of past used. larger pasta shapes will yield larger serving sizes.

*********the nutritional information will be lower if using low fat/low sodium varieties of the soups. i did not have the nutritionals on hand to enter into the system the low fat values, so i had to go with the ones preloaded. ************

    I've made this twice. The first time, I used Fiesta Cheese soup and it turned out wonderfully! The second time I didn't have Fiesta cheese, so I used regular cheese soup and added a drained can of Rotel. This didn't turn out so well. Next time I'll go back to the Fiesta cheese soup. Hubby loved it! - 3/24/10

    Tasty, although it's more like chicken pot pie with noodles instead of pie than mac n' cheese. I found the chicken to be done after 4 1/2 hrs instead of 6-8 (at least with my slow cooker on low). I thought it needed a bit more seasoning, so I may try adding pepper (or hot sauce) to my leftovers. - 1/10/10

    SOOOOOO good!!!!! A couple of suggestions that I found to make it perfect: Use the fiesta cheese soup....it adds a great finishing flavor to it! Also, use Gigli pasta (a type of noodle, not brand). Those noodles are amazing with this dish!

    This recipe is definitely a keeper! - 1/4/11

    Everyone loved it...even my super picky 8 year old who only likes spaghetti-o's. Next time i'm going to substitute the cr. of mushroom soup for another can of cheese soup so it will be a little cheesier, but it was great just the way it is. Thanks so much. - 4/27/10

    I'd try to find the low-sodium version of the soups. But is does sound like a very hearty winter-time meal! - 6/18/09

    The kids love it. This is the 3rd time since July I'm making this recipe. It's a great one to make for our 'date night' because I know the kids and sitter will gobble it up. Leftovers are great for my lunch the next day! - 8/16/07

    This was so good. My son loved it. Great to come home to a comfort food after a long day. I only had one chicken breast in the freezer and used that, it was great! Thanks!! I redid the cals with using low fat/low sodium everything so it was a little lower. - 2/15/11

    My family loves this, even my husband who doesn't like this kind of thing. I put in the frozen mixed veggies, corn, beans, lima beans, carrots. And they eat it up. I make it a couple times a month as I love crock pot cooking with how busy we are. - 12/5/08

    This was great! I didn't get home in time to do the crockpot, so I just simmered it on the stove, added cauliflower and peas, and spiced it up a bit with garlic powder, and pepper. Wonderful! - 7/22/07

  • I love how easy this recipe is and it tastes pretty good. My family liked it but didn't love it. Needs more flavor. I used 2 cans of cheese soup and 1 can of cream of celery. I think next time I will add some black pepper or maybe a dash of cayenne. Pretty good if you like things on the mild side. - 3/26/14
