My husband and I both love this recipe. I use chicken breasts as I prefer them but you can use whatever parts your like or even a whole chicken! My husband and my 12 year old grandson Brendan both recently had open heart surgery so I cook it without the soup when I want a healthier dish. Leftovers made this way can be shredded to make chicken tacos. However, the soup adds more of a gravy to the mix and we like to eat it over rice made with chicken broth. I use a crockpot liner and zip bag to make cleanup quicker and easier.
