Welcome to Simple Fare, Fairly Simple. This is a place for me to post recipes of all kinds...along with other miscellaneous fodder from my so-called life here in the south. Who knows what you will find here. Could be anything from my husband...known as IT Guy...to my kids and beautiful grandbabies that are growing up way too fast right before my eyes. But...mostly this will be a place for food. I hope you'll see something you like and if you decide to try something from the list...leave me a comment and let me know!

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken

I'm forever looking for ways to NOT turn my oven on in the summertime. With our kitchen getting full evening sun, it's no fun to have to mess with any more heat than I have to. So my crock pot is my best friend during the summer months. This is such an easy dish. Put everything in the crock pot, then let it go. No stirring until the very end. I love this dish!!!

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 10-ounce cans cream of chicken soup
1 10-ounce can cheddar cheese soup
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
salt and pepper to taste

Spray your crock pot with cooking spray.

Place chicken breasts in the crock pot.
Combine the soups in a bowl with the garlic powder, salt and pepper and pour over the chicken.
Cover and cook on low 6-8 hours , until chicken is tender.
With two forks, shred the chicken.  Serve over rice or noodles.

The list...

Add the chicken to the crock pot. 
Mix the soups together in a bowl
along with the seasonings and pour over the chicken.

OR...do like I did. I mixed the soups 
in the crock pot then added the chicken
 then added the seasonings then ladled 
some of the soup over the chicken.
 Saved myself a bowl to wash.

This is half was through cooking. 
At the end of cooking time, remove
 each piece of chicken to a plate, shred 
and place back in the crock pot to warm through.

Serve or rice or noodles. SO easy!!! And good!!
