People who don’t own a slow cooker look at me like I have three heads when I gush about our slow cooker recipes. The look I get is similar to the way people respond to sleep away camp. If they themselves never experienced the joys of living away from their parents over the summer as a child, then they can’t even imagine (or entertain the thought) of sending their own kids.
Bottom line: slow cookers are tremendous time savers in the kitchen. The ease of use is remarkable: simply dump in your ingredients and let the appliance do all the work for the rest of the day. You can’t complain about that!
The day I saw this recipe over at Six Sister’s I immediately tried it for my family. It’s a huge hit since we’re all Ritz Crackers fan and we adore the buttery crunchy texture it renders to the chicken.
It’s the perfect remedy to a cold winter’s day.
- 1¾ ounce can cream of chicken soup
- 1 pint sour cream
- 1½ cups crushed Ritz crackers
- ½ cup butter, melted
- 4 to 6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- Combine the soup and sour cream in a bowl and set aside. In another bowl mix together crackers crumbs and melted butter.
- Place chicken in a slow cooker that has been sprayed lightly with non stick cooking spray. Spoon the soup/sour cream mixture over the chicken and then sprinkle with the Ritz cracker topping. Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours, or cook on high for 4 to 5 hours.
