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 preferred)

    1 pound any pasta shape

    1 package frozen veggies (cauliflower or broccoli work best)

Directions

In a slow cooker, 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
