I love easy meals. I can’t stress that enough. We sometimes go non-stop around here and it’s nice to come home after driving all over creation to a meal that is pretty much done. Oh, happy day.
I tend to cook a lot of chicken meals around here, and my husband gets kind of tired of chicken on occasion, so I try to mix it up a little bit, all while making my life easier.
This doesn’t start out looking super appetizing, but most Crock Pot meals don’t. You just have to trust going in that when it’s done, it’s delicious.
All you need to do is throw in the chicken breasts, water, butter, cream of mushroom soup, garlic powder, and onion powder. Stir it up and put the lid on, and bam, you’re done! All you gotta do is wait for it to cook.
On a side note, I love the word butter and cream. Don’t they make you happy? You know something is going to taste really great if you’ve added something creamy and buttery. It’s going to be hard to wait those 6-8 hours until it’s done. Especially when the scent starts filling up the house.
This meal will feed 6 people and fill them up. If you’d like to add more chicken you can do that. I would add a little more rice at the end, as well.

Set your Crock Pot for 6 hours on medium, or 8 hours on low. I am of the belief that if you set it for longer, it’s going to be a little more tender, whether it’s beef or chicken.
If you’re looking to save some money on food, you can plan ahead and can get inexpensive chicken from Zaycon Fresh, freeze it, and save a ton of money.
Zaycon Fresh is like your local co-op, but online. Here’s how it works:
- You order online, for a super low price (often chicken breasts are $1.99 a pound, and they always have coupons for more savings if you sign up for their emails – as I’m writing this, they are on sale for $1.89 a pound).
- The chicken comes frozen and pre-packaged. They come as a 40-pound package.
- You order online and select a pickup date and location. When the time comes to pick up the chicken you don’t even have to get out of the car (which is great if you don’t want to get kids in and out of the car). The delivery person will open your trunk and place the package inside.
- If you’re budgeting or trying to save money, you can actually help out at the delivery and get a really good discount on your meats the next go around. That’s what I call a savings!
- The chicken comes direct from the processing farm, so it’s fresher than ever!
