Cheesy Creamy Chicken and Potatoes Recipe

Posted on October 20, 2011 in Recipes by Katie Oskin


What is better than chicken, potatoes, & cheese?

As you all know, in our house we eat off of a meal plan.  Not only does this save money, but it also keeps dinner preparation stress free.  There’s no more lurking around the kitchen, checking cupboards wondering, “what should I make for dinner?”  Or scouring cookbooks and recipes wondering “Do I have everything to make this?”

Yesterday, though we were eating off our meal plan, I have built in what I call “pantry days.”  These are days that I can prepare anything that we have the ingredients for.  I do this because like you, when I have coupons, or I am at the supermarket and something in on sale, I pick it up to take home to freeze or put in the pantry.  This means that there is always food in the house.

Last night was a “pantry dinner.”  With Bible Study, Choir Practice, hubby’s office hours, and meetings for church all on Wednesday night, Wednesdays can tend to be very hectic here in our home.  My dinner solution: crockpot meals!  The reason I love crockpot meals in the obvious, 20-30 minutes prep time in the morning, set it, walk away, and come back later to an awesome dinner.

The recipe I made last night was a Katie Oskin Original and it was very tasty! To make it yourself, just follow this simple recipe.

– Prep Time: 10 minutes
– Cook Time: 4-6 Hours (medium); 6-8 Hours (low)

  • 3-4 Chicken Breasts
  • 1 Can Cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 Can Cheddar Cheese Soup
  • 5-6 Medium Red Skin Potatoes
  • 1 Small Sweet Onion
  • 2-3 Tbs. Citrus Chicken Rub
Spray crock pot with non-stick spray.  Place chicken breasts in the bottom on the crock pot.  Wash potatoes and cut in sixths.  Toss potatoes in crock pot on top of chicken.  Cut onion to your preference and throw in crock pot on top of potatoes.  Mix together both cans of soup in separate bowl.  Top all ingredients in crock pot (chicken, potatoes, & onion) with approximately 2-3 Tbs. citrus chicken rub (I use a citrus chicken spice blend).  Pour mixed soups on top of all ingredients, making sure to cover ALL the ingredients (see picture).  Cover and cook on medium for 4-6 hours.  My apologies for not taking a picture of the finished product…but it was excellent.

Linda – Crock Pots are a blessing. I don't use it a lot in the summer….but I use it ALL fall & winter.
