I cooked the same thing for dinner last night! :) I only had one can of chicken soup, so I used it plus one can of the cheese soup, and it just came out nice and cheesy. The recipe I have says it is 4 1/2 pts per serving. I counted the chicken as 3 and 2 for the soup since I used ff cream of chicken. It was sooooooooooooooooo yummy and my kids just suck it up! :) I agree that this is one of the easiest and yummiest chicken dinners we've had in a long time
I made the cheesey crockpot chicken today - through in some chopped onions and a bag of frozen broc/caul/carrots. I also added a little curry powder instead of the garlic powder for a little zip! YUM!
One pot dinner!

Chicken Cordon Bleu crockpot
4-6 chicken breasts (pounded out thin)
4-6 pieces of ham
4-6 slices of Swiss or mozzarella cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup (can use any cream soup)
1/4 cup milk
Put ham and cheese on chicken. Roll up and secure with a toothpick. Place chicken in the crockpot so it looks like a triangle /_\ Layer the rest on top. Mix soup with the milk; pour over top of chicken. Cover and cook on low for 4 hours or until chicken is no longer pink. Serve over noodles with the sauce it makes.
Teresa's Note: Its the best recipe I've tried so far, very flavorful.



I came up with 5-6, depending on the size of the chicken breast. I used a 3 oz chicken breast (3 pts.) 96% fat free ham (.5 pts), 2% moz cheese (1 pt.). Then when you add the cream of mushroom soup (98% ff) and 1/4 c. milk (fat free) and divide by the 6 servings I had in the crockpot, I only came up with about 1 pt. for that (at most). Total = 5.5 pts. Does that sound about right. Hope so.

Bailey2001 Fiesta Chicken Surprise

I call this "surprise" because I just threw a bunch of stuff in the crockpot and didn't know what to expect. My husband LOVES it and wants me to make it every weekend. You can add other veggies if you like, this is just the basic recipe I follow but it is very adaptable.

1 can enchilada sauce
1 jar medium salsa
1 red pepper, sliced
1 zucchini, sliced
3 garlic cloves, sliced
Boneless, skinless chicken breast (I use about 1 1/2 lbs)

Put all ingredients in the crockpot and cook on high for 2 1/2 hours (check it periodically and stir it -- might be done sooner if you use thin chicken breasts).

I like to serve it wrapped in flour tortillas with a little bit of light cheddar cheese but it is also good on its own, eaten like a stew. If you like cilantro feel free to add some chopped cilantro duriing the last half hour of cooking.




Cranberry Crockpot Chicken

4 Boneless Skinless Chicken breasts
1 "regular sized" can of cranberry sauce, either jellied or whole berry (I think the can weighs somewhere in the neighborhood of a pound)
1 cup fat free Catalina, Russian, or Thousand Island salad dressing (I always use the Catalina)
1 envelope Liptons Onion Soup mix, dry

Spray the crockpot with nonstick cooking spray. Mix the cranberry sauce, dressing, and onion soup mix in the pot. Put chicken in pot, turning each piece to coat with sauce. (I often use frozen breasts, just increase the cooking time by an hour or two.) Cook on low 6 to 8 hours.

And more of my comments...I usually put in more than 4 breasts, because this makes a LOT of sauce. Right now I have the crockpot loaded up and ready to go with 8 breasts in it. That's another thing I do, mix it up the night before, put the crock in the fridge, and start it in the morning. Truly delicious stuff, even though the concoction sounds a bit strange! Again, the points depend on the size of your breasts :-) but mine are usually 6 oz. cooked, so 6 points each, plus I add 1 point for a serving of sauce. If I wanted to be TOTALLY anal about it, I'd measure out how much sauce it makes and divide it up into servings and figure out the points, but I'm pretty sure I'd be close enough to 1 point to not make the juice worth the squeeze on that analysis. I serve this with 1 cup of bulgur for 2 points and a veggie or big salad and have a totally filling meal for 8 points.

ebowman I've loved all the recipes shared, so I thought I would submit my family's favorite.

Savory Chicken Sandwiches

4 bone in split chicken breasts
4-6 thighs
1/4 cup Italian dressing (can use lite)
1/4 cup water
1 pkg dry onion soup mix
dash garlic salt

Put everything in crock pot, cook on low for 6-8 hours, remove chicken from pot, bone it and shred it, then after straining broth for bones and "funky stuff", add chicken to broth. Serve on buns. My kids love this, it tastes like leftover turkey and gravy (go figure) I allow about 5 points for a 3/4 cup serving of chicken and use Lite buns.
Enjoy
