Menu Monday: Easy Chicken Dinner

My beautiful friend Chrissy posted this recipe on her blog.….and I just had to try it!

Her blog is called “I’m No Martha,” but don’t let that fool you….

She’s truly a sister who loves and serves her husband, her children, her friends….but best of all—-she loves the Lord and wants to please Him!

(That puts her about 1000 notches above Martha….in my book) πŸ™‚

(No offense, Martha.)

(Because I’m sure you read this blog.)

Crock-Pot Chicken Dinner

4-6 Chicken Breasts (frozen or thawed)
2 Cans Whole New Potatoes, drained (I used 4 regular potatoes, diced)
1/2 Bag Baby Carrots
1 Can each – Cream of Chicken and Cream of Mushroom Soup
Salt, Pepper, Garlic and Onion Powder to taste (I used one packet of Onion Soup instead!)

“Dump it in your crock-pot, stir, set to high for 4-5 hours or low for 6-8 hours. Easy, peezy, lemon squeezy.” – Chrissy

I layered it like this:

  • 4 cubed raw potatoes  (prob. less than $.50)
  • carrots (half of a $.99 bag, so $.50)
  • chicken (so the chicken juices would season the veggies) ($2 from The Box)
  • packet of Onion Soup (several packets came in the box, so around $.50)
  • Cream of Chicken/Cream of Mushroom Soups stirred together (stocked up at $.50 each)

I put this in right before church on Sunday(on high), and when we opened the front door at about 1:15, we were almost knocked over by the awesome SMELL!

While I was separating the chicken and veggies into serving dishes, my 6 year old peeked into the crockpot, and then started running around the house yelling, “GRAVY ALERT…..GRAVY ALERT!!!” (That prompted me to fill a separate bowl full of “gravy”!)

During the meal she announced that we were having a FEAST today…..

Hmm…..a feast…..for $4.50…..

not bad.  Not bad at all.

Thanks, Chrissy


JustCookAlready made this chicken, which looks similar to the end product!  Great Job!


Love being encouraged by and learning from my sisters in Christ,
