Total Time: 6 hours, 10 minutes
Yield: 6 servings
- 5 slices bacon
- 6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
- 10 oz. can condensed cream of chicken soup OR 10 oz. jar four cheese Alfredo sauce
- 4 oz. jar sliced mushrooms, drained OR 1 onion, chopped
- 1/2 cup diced Swiss or Havarti cheese
In large skillet, cook bacon until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet and drain on paper towels.
Crumble bacon and set aside in refrigerator.
In bacon drippings in skillet, cook chicken over medium heat 3-4 minutes or until light brown, turning once. Place in 4-6 quart slow cooker. Top with mushrooms or onions (or both!). In skillet, heat soup, scraping up pan drippings, and pour over chicken in slow cooker. Cover and cook on low setting for 4-5 hours, or until chicken registers 160°F on a meat thermometer.
Top chicken with diced cheese and sprinkle with bacon. Cover and cook on high for 10-15 minutes or until cheese is melted.
Note: I've recently started cooking this dish using frozen chicken breasts. Brown them, as directed, in the bacon drippings, then cook on low for 6-8 hours, until a food thermometer registers 160 degrees F.
