This recipe is an old favorite of our family. What isn’t an old favorite is how unhealthy the original recipe is. It calls for 1 cube of butter, a can of cream of chicken soup, an entire block of cream cheese, no veggies and served over white rice. I really think most recipes are not very hard to make healthy. When I make a dinner for my family I have a few of goals in mind. Use the least amount of processed foods possible (for the entire fam) decrease the amount of saturated fat (for the hubs) and increase the amount of fruits and vegetables (for the kids).
The first key to this recipe is to know how to make a Cream of Chicken Soup from scratch.
Then there are a few other key ingredients for this recipe.
After that it is just a matter of mixing everything together in the crockpot and letting it get all creamy and delicious for a while.
You will add your veggies at the end. We used broccoli which I think pairs the best with this dish, but you could also use fresh spinach, green peas, or green beans. We served ours over quinoa which was delicious, but you could also use brown rice or even bulgar.
