Chicken Stroganoff in the Crock Pot

Crock Pot Chicken Stroganoff

In case you’re new around here, we have EIGHT children. Our days can sometimes be a little frantic, rushing to various school events, after school practices, jobs, ect. We’re happily involved with our church. There’s always a mountain of laundry, dishes to wash, floors to sweep. And once in a while I try to get a little blogging done.

I need dinners that I can throw into the slow-cooker in the morning. I also need those dinner to be filling and large enough to feed our rowdy crew – and dinner needs to be tasty. I’ve got a few picky eaters.

Chicken Stroganoff is a huge hit at our house.

Chicken Stroganoff

Ingredients:

  • 4 or 5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 10.5-ounce can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 8-ounce package of cream cheese
  • 1 container of sour cream (16 ounces)
  • Egg Noodles
  • Salt and pepper to taste

Spray slow-cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Add frozen chicken breasts and top with cream of mushroom soup. Cut cream cheese into cubes and add to chicken. Add salt and pepper to your family’s taste preference.

Cook on low for 6-8 hours.

I stir once or twice throughout the day to mix all the ingredients.

About 20 minutes before dinner prepare egg noodles. While the noodles are boiling, add about 3/4 of a 16 ounce container of sour cream to the chicken – mix well, I try not to completely break up the chicken while mixing. It’s nice to have some big chunks of chicken in this dish. Drain noodles and add to chicken, stirring to mix well.

Just before serving, top with a dollop of sour cream.

      Thank you! :)

    Do you put the chicken breasts in frozen?

    1. Amanda

      Yes, I do – but it will work fine with thawed chicken as well. :)

      1. Amanda Coers

        I should note: I will put my Crock Pot heat setting on HIGH when using frozen chicken, for the first couple of hours, and then switch to low. It’s best to use thawed chicken in slow cookers – but often I’ll forget to thaw the day before. This is not recommend, but in all my years of cooking, no one has died yet. I’ll let y’all know if I suddenly keel over. 😉 For the most optimal food safety, though, it’s best to use thawed meat in slow cookers to avoid food-born bacteria.

    What size cream cheese?

    1. amandacoers

      An 8-ounce package :)

  6. jane

    Do you use bone in chicken breasts?

    1. amandacoers

      No, I use boneless :) it’s just easier that way.

  7. Tonya

    When you add the cream of mushroom soup do you add water to it or just what’s in the can?

    1. amandacoers

      Hi Tonya :) just what’s in the can – no dilution needed

      1. Tonya

        Thats what i thought. Thanks for the answer. Putting this recipe on my to do list. :)

  8. Lynn

    Not sure if my message went through. I’m wondering if one can of mushroom soup is enough for 6 chicken breasts? We like extra gravy! :)

    1. amandacoers

      Hi Lynn! :) if you like a little extra gravy, go ahead and add another can and adjust the seasoning as needed

  9. Mary

    I used 2 cans of cream of chicken instead of mushroom It was wonderful.

  10. Marilyn

    Hi Amanda, I’m making this today and wondering how much egg noodles do you use? I have a 16 oz bag and am not sure if I should use the whole thing, or just half? TIA!

    1. amandacoers

      We normally use a whole bag :)

      1. Marilyn

        I was hoping, thanks! : )

  11. Jeanette

    How many will this serve? Feeding 4 couples this Sunday, and the guys sure like to eat!!

    1. amandacoers

      This should be plenty, if paired with a couple of veggie sides and maybe some bread :)

      1. Jeanette

        Great!! Yes, someone is bringing bread, and another couple is bringing grilled veggies. Thanks for replying so quickly!

  12. Janene

    Making this for dinner tonight & can’t wait to give it a try! :) I am a non-cook who recently bought a Crock Pot & I’m looking for EASY meals. Can’t get easier than this! I will leave a review. Thanks for putting this up for us amateurs. (Even though I am in my early 50s! ha!)

    1. Janene

      I never came back to thank you for the wonderful recipe! We had it 2 nights in a row and plan to have it again this weekend. It’s a winner! Thanks so much!

      1. amandacoers

        Aww! Thanks Janene! 😀

  13. Kelly

    This was a hit! I only had 3 chicken breasts. It worked out fine. And it didn’t take 6 hours in my crockpot. It only took about 5 hours. Next time I will ad another can of cream of mushroom soup. Very delicious! Thanks for the recipe.

    1. Janene

      Kelly…I also added an extra can of mushroom soup, it was great! And, I added corn because I’m a corn freak this time of year! (I cut it off the cob but any kind would be great!) I didn’t mention it above but the time was less for me too. :)

  14. leann

    Do I put the chicken breast in whole or do I cut it up?

    1. Amanda Coers

      Either way will work :) the chicken will come apart during cooking

      1. Nhora

        I got all the ingredients, and low fat cream cheese, I’ve been looking at this recipe for two weeks now, finally I’m trying today!! Thanks for this one, do you have more recipes to share, especially with chicken, two of my kids don’t eat meat, I’ll let you know the final results,

  15. leann

    Do I leave the Breast whole or do I cut them up?

  16. Dorothy M Plantz

    This sounds so easy and good – definitely going to try it! Thank you!

    1. Dorothy M Plantz

      Update – my hubby made this today and we all loved it! So easy, and so good! Yummy! Thanks, again:-)

    1. susieklein

      This is so so good! Perfect comfort food for a Fall day!!

  19. Sarah

    Could this be cooked on high for a shorter amount of time or does it have to cook on low? Thanks!!

    1. Amanda Coers

      Yes, you can cook this on high for 3-4 hours

  20. Stacy Lane

    Just made this today for supper, it was very good! I used 2 cans of mushroom soup plus added a can of mushrooms, delicious. I work full time, so I’m always looking for quick and easy recipes, thanks for this one

  21. Verna

    Can you cook the noodles in the crockpot too ?

    1. Amanda Coers

      No, i cook the noodles seperately

  22. Tammi

    Can you use raw uncooked chicken breast?

  23. Linda

    Do you have any idea the temperatures and time if I did it in the oven? It sounds so good, but no crockpot. Thank you!

  24. Jen Harpole

    Made this tonight…..it was a hit! Thanks!!

  25. Cheryl McKie

    Really like the sounds of this recipe – Thanks. Love easy dishes !

  26. Laire

    Looks great!! Want to try this but I don’t have any sour cream toady :( think it will still workout?? Thanks!

    1. Amanda Coers

      It should still be tasty :)

  27. Robyn

    Waaay too much sour cream. I would probably use a couple of tablespoons next time.

  28. Sara

    Have you tried this with pre-cooked chicken and just heat it all in a pan and then add the cooked noodles? Instead of the slow cooker….I have cooked chicken leftover, just was curious. Thanks!

  29. Elizabeth

    Just wanted to say a quick thanks for this recipe. I found it on Pinterest this week and made it today. It was delicious! My fiance and I both devoured it and are looking forward to the leftovers. Thanks for the great recipe!

    Silly question… how do you get the cream cheese cubed up so small and square? ♥♥ I love this it turned out great. Thank you for sharing.

    1. Amanda Coers

      I’m glad you liked it :) I just use a knife and cut the cream cheese into cubes.

  32. DeAnna

    Do you think the chicken would dry out if you cook it longer than 6-8 hours? I am looking to make it before work, so it would cook for 9-10 hours.

    1. Amanda Coers

      Hi DeAnna :) I think it should be fine, but if you’d like you can add 1/2 stick butter to see if that keeps everything from drying out.

      1. linda

        is this a E or S? with the noodles I’m confused.

        1. Amanda Coers

          Hi there, this is an older recipe before I started Trim Healthy Mama. This is definitely NOT on plan :)

    2. Beth

      I set my crock pot on a timer, so it will not cook too long. Then I can turn it back on when I get home and make sure everything is good and warm. (Everything is usually still plenty warm/hot anyway :-) )

  33. Megan

    Have you ever tried freezing the leftovers of this recipe and reheating another night? I was wondering if it would be any good after being frozen

  34. Milla

    Will it go bad if I leave it in the crock pot overnight on the warm setting? Made it in the evening and want to pack it for lunch tmrw!

    1. Amanda Coers

      I’m not sure if I would do that – It may be better to cook it fully, keep it in the fridge and microwave the next day.
