    I loved this! I just made it tonight! Winner winner chicken dinner! I changes a few this based on previous comments. I used 2 can of cream of chicken soup and 3/4C of sour cream. Before serving instead of shredding the chick I cut it up into chunks! I also used real bacon and not bacon bits. Huge hit and this we will have often! My son is 2 1/2 and his first bite he said “mmmm”. :)

    I made this recipe with just a few variations. I used 5/6 boneless sinkless chicken thighs ( I personally always used chicken thighs with Crockpot recipes as they are best for keeping moist and doesn’t dry out as easily as chicken breast). I added one onion chopped. I used prosciutto that I had on hand instead of the real bacon bits. Turned out really well, though I would add a little salt and pepper ahead of time the next time I made this. My Husband has asked for me to add this to my recipe book!

    This is the only thing I’ve ever made that my husband couldn’t get enough of. I used chicken broth instead of water, I don’t like bacon bits so I used real bacon instead I didn’t have garlic so I just used garlic powder and I like mine with rice instead of noodles.

    This is my 15th crockin girls recipe and I am just thrilled with this site. Finally, somewhere with different and delicious recipes. I didn’t have bacon bits. I love them but if I did have bacon bits I would use real bacon. This cooked exactly like it said it would. It wasn’t dry but my chicken was still a bit frozen. I wouldn’t mind adding corn to this. If you need a veg, steam some broccoli, the sauce would taste great over that and noodles. Oh, I had a Hidden Valley Ranch Spicy Ranch packet and it gave everything a little zip .I do not like heat but I do like flavor and this was a nice addition. ENJOY!

    Absolutely, Angela! Since you’re cooking for one you can freeze this in quart size freezer bags and have several servings stored away!

  21. Angela

    Will this freeze well : ) Hope so… Cooking for 1

    Kristin,
    You can cook it on low for about 5-6 hours.

  23. Kristin

    I only had 2 chicken breasts. How long do I cook on low?

  24. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Donna, sorry for the confusion. You will use raw chicken. Cooking on high for 3/4 hours will thoroughly cook the chicken. If you need to extend the time, you can cook it on low for 6-8 hours. Hope this helps.

  25. Donna

    Ack I’m so confused! In earlier comments everything says to use raw chicken but in a more recent comment a woman named Amanda asks if the chicken goes in already cooked and crockin’ girls response is “it is, (meaning you put cooked chicken in for 3/4 hours on HIGH???) You can use uncooked chicken and crock it longer…. 7-8 hours on LOW.”

  26. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Thanks for sharing all the different ways y’all like to eat this one…over rice, mashed potatoes, by itself! And you can’t go wrong with more bacon. That’s for sure!

    We <3 to hear how y’all have made this recipe your own!

    Happy Crockin’, y’all!

  27. Meghann T.

    This recipe is seriously DELICIOUS!! The whole family loved this dish! I will certainly be adding this to my arsenal of go-to recipes.
    I did follow the above advice & made extra sauce by using an extra can of cream of chkn, 1/2 C. Of sour cream.
    Also, in place of the bacon bits, I subbed in about 6 pieces of precooked bacon that I just snipped over the crock w/ kitchen shears!

    Thanks for a great recipe!!

    I made this and made extra sauce by adding another can of soup, extra 1/2 package of ranch dressing and 1/2 cup more sour cream. So good, kids loved it over egg noodles. Another keeper !
    My only question is how can you make crockpot meals with chicken that will not be dry besides changing to skinless boneless thighs ? Can you crock the meal and add raw chicken in after awhile ?

    I want to try this recipe but not sure on a couple things. For the egg noodles are you using the whole 12oz bag? Also, for the soup I am guessing I should use a 26 oz can not a10 oz?

    This recipe is ‘da bomb!!!! Whole Family loved it! I added more bacon, for preference. I had plenty of sauce, but I think that was due to the chicken breasts being a little smaller. I didn’t serve it “over” anything and it was still perfect. This will be one of new fave meals!

  50. Liz

    Turned out a lot like an OK tuna casserole to me. My husband made the same comparison too. Not bad, easy, smelled great cooking. However, it did not knock my socks off. So many people gave it 5 “dots”. I think we should all agree that giving a recipe the highest marks should be left for the ones that are to die for. 4 dots would be considered quite good, 3 not bad, 2 eh, 1 yuk. With this I would rate it about a 2.5.

    Amanda

    HI I see you only have a cook time of 3-4 hours, is this because the chicken is already cooked?

    I made this last night and it was so delicious!!! I did read some of the reviews so I tweaked it a little bit by using a large can of soup and used about 8-10oz. (before cooking) of no yolk egg noodles instead. We will definitely be making this again!

    Last night was my first night trying a recipe from this website, this is the one I tried and it was AMAZING. However, I know someone that made this before and she had suggested to add an extra 1/2 can of the Cream of Chicken soup to make it so there was more gravy. I did, it was amazing, but I think I’ll be adding another 1/2 pqcket-packet of the ranch. Either way, my family loved it!

    Sounds like your house is happy, Julie! Crockin’ SUCCESS!!

  59. Julie

    Made it yesterday, served my kids very little to see if they would like it and hearing them say yum was a good sign then asking for seconds was another good sign. My husband served himself quite a bit and I’m thinking to myself “why would you serve that much if you don’t know how it tastes” but he said it was very tasty. He too got up for seconds. I felt good at this point but still had my biggest critic, my mom. Served her a plate but she was only able to taste very little as my sister ate her food. They both said it was good. I FELT PROUD OF MYSELF. Can’t wait to put my first crockpot to use from now on.

    Julie, you’ll be a crockin’ gal before you know it! 8oz should be fine. Just don’t overfill with noodles because even though they’re cooked they’ll still soak up some of your sauce. Let us know how it turns out! Since you’re new to this, check out all the recipes in our video section. We walk you through crockin’ recipes, step-by-step! http://crockingirls.com/videos/

  61. Julie

    I’m going to ATTEMPT to make this right now & hope I don’t screw it up. I’m not a cooker but reading the reviews makes it seem anybody can make it. I bought an 8 oz bag of noodles, will this be too much?

  62. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    I’d suggest no more than 2-3 cups of dry noodles. You don’t want to overdo it because the noodles will soak up your yummy sauce! Just eyeball and be conservative. If you have noodles leftover, just put them in the fridge to use in a different recipe.

  63. Aimee

    I’m cooking this for the first time today. Approximately how many egg noodles should I cook and add to it? Thanks!

    This was my very first experience at using a slow cooker. It was excellent! Although, it didn’t taste very “ranchy” or “bacony”, but I can see those as being super easy fixes I can do.

    It fed my boyfriend and I and gave us three containers of leftovers for lunch. Awesome!

    I would most definitely recommend this. It was super easy and extremely tastey!!! I can’t wait to make it again!

    This was good an easy to make. They didn’t have cream of chicken at the store so I used cream of mushroom and it worked fine. The only thing is this seemed a bit salty to me even though I tried to use low sodium soup so it’s probably the Ranch mix. I will make this again!

    Grandkids were coming over for dinner after soccer and we had to please many “selective” eaters…this one did the trick! I did add low sodium broth (@ 1cup) to low sodium/healthy request cream of chicken & the ranch seasoning mix. Added sour cream when Crock went on “warm”; used about 1/4 cup real chopped bacon. Consistancy was PERFECT for noodles…I could see how it would be thinker without the broth. EXCELLENT flavor; clean plates; seconds; thirds…no leftovers! Thank you!

    Tonya, it is a little thicker consistency since it doesn’t use any broth. I think it would be really good on a bun! That’s crock-tastic!

    I liked this recips alot. The only thing I would do is maybe add a litle no sodium chicken stock to it as well as use a low sodium soup. I found it a little on the salty side and did not have enough sauce to put over the egg noodles. I will try these suggestions next time.

    I made this recipe a couple of weeks ago, everybody loved it. I thought it was a little plain and the sour cream overpowered the flavor. My husband stated that this was a dish that he wanted me to make again. I made it again last night, this time I doubled the recipe,but I only used 1 1/4 c. sour cream. I used (1) pkg. of Ranch dressing and (1) pkg. of Ranch Spicy dressing mix. It was yummy. I liked it alot better this time. My son and his wife loved it. There was none left. My daughter-in-law is a fantastic cook and she thought it was really good. I will definitely make again. Adding this recipe to my favorites.

    Angela,
    I think you will be fine without the noodles. Especially since you usually don’t eat pasta…you will not miss it.

  89. Jen

    Oh I also added cooked real bacon instead of the bacon bits and it was a huge success!

  90. Jen

    Oh my! This is just what I was looking for to make for tonight’s dinner! I saw where one person commented that they used bottled ranch dressing instead of the sour cream and ranch dressing mix. How much would you use? I’m assuming close to one cup since that is the amount of sour cream. Also, I was thinking of adding a second can of cream of mushroom soup to the cream of chicken soup as well. Thanks for commenting and for your great recipes!

  92. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    No silly questions. We are all in this together. There are times when you will put uncooked pasta in the cooker like, lasagna. However, egg noodles always needs to cooked before because they will get mushy.

    I doubled the sour cream and cream of chicken and still found it dry. I like the flavor, but I like stuff soupy not dry. So next time use more ingredients.

    Hubby thought it was delish however, and didn’t see anything wrong with it. (he doesn’t like food as soupy as I do)

    He went back for seconds!!

    Thanks for sharing!

  104. kate

    I haven’t made it yet but I’m going to add a cooked red pepper and onion, maybe some celery too, just to get in some veggies. Also, its a great way to use up some of the things in my produce drawer. Sounds yummy though.

  105. Kelly

    I found this website about 2 weeks ago. This is my second recipe that I’ve made. I’m 2 for 2 with enjoying the recipes that I’ve made!! I didn’t shred the chicken after it cooked. I left it whole and served it over the egg noodles. I did find that once I cut a piece up and smeared it in the sauce in my plate, that I liked it even more. The whole bite then had the sauce on it instead of just the outside of the chicken. It was still very good. Next time I will shred it and try it that way. (the other recipe I tried was the shredded bbq chicken. Also delicious)

    You sure can, Melanie. We prefer cooking on low and slow and letting our food “hang out” together all day. 6-8 hours on low depending on how hot your crock cooks. Chicken can dry out easily if you let it go too long in some crocks :) Happy Crockin’ to ya!

  112. Laura

    this recipe is AMAZING the only “down” side is that I have a son with a heart condition so we have to eat super heart healthy in our house so I changed it a little and honestly I would never know the difference its amazing!:

    instead of bacon bits, I oven prep turkey bacon and make my own bacon bits–allows you to keep the fat out and turkey bacon is much better for you…in the realm of “healthy” bacon :)

    use fat free sour cream (in general blah but because of all the flavors in here can’t tell!)

    low sodium cream of chicken

    and instead of egg noodles we use wheat egg noodles
    (we add extra garlic but we LOVE garlic more than the average family)

    it makes it much healthier and still super delicious, honestly I couldn’t tell the difference and I am a HUGE fan of the original recipe :)

    Wow, this stuff is phenomenal. I used bow-tie pasta since that is what I had on had. After cooking the pasta I mix in a little olive oil to keep it from sticking. I keep it separate from the sauce so my family can decide their own pasta to ranch chicken ratio. I’ve probably made this 3 times now and it’s still a favorite.

It turned out really tasty, but I know it would’ve tasted better w/the real bacon. We sprinkled the bacon bits on the top and they loved that! Will definitely do again!

    QUICK QUESTION! Does anyone know if when you add the cream of chicken you also add the 1 can of water with it? It just seems so thick! I don’t want to ruin this my first time trying a recipe!

  119. Audrey

    I made this yesterday and let it croc away while I did some house cleaning and laundry. I added fresh broccoli florets to the mix just because I wanted some veggies in there and tossed in egg noodles. Both my 17 year old and 4 year old loved it as well as my hubby! We just had another plate of it for lunch today!! Definitely a keeper and super easy! I will try to make it with different flavors of ranch packets just for variety but this recipe is definitely a keeper!!!

    Another recipe I found on here that I LOVE! I just made this and had an early lunch. Very good. I only changed one thing, I used real bacon. I am not a bacon fan but I can eat some stuff with bacon and I made a good choice. it brought the flavor out on this dish. I had some egg noodles but not enough so I added Penne and mixed it together. DELISH! I shared this with my FB friends and 2 people are already making it.

    Heather, it really just depends on the recipe, but for this one we add cooked noodles about 15-20 minutes before serving. I like to make several batches of noodles at the beginning of the week and keep them in the fridge. Then, they’re easy to add to my recipes. You can do this with rice, too!

    Gary, thanks for your tips and review! We really appreciate it!

  123. Jennifer H.

    I tried this last night….so easy and very good! I used the chicken tenderloins instead of breasts and did not shred them and serve them with the noodles…just left the tenderloins whole. I will definitely make this again!

    Followed your recipe to a T last night, but since the recipe doesn’t state how much past to cook, I made 8oz. of medium size egg noodles. I cooked it on low for about 6hr. 15min. & the chicken was easy to shred. After adding the shredded chicken & cooked/drained noodles back into the crock pot, it became obvious that the consistency was way too dry. My wife & I doctor’d it up by adding another can of cream of chicken soup, a little milk & a bit more sour cream to get the right consistency that we like. Soooo, we recommend to either cut back on the amount of pasta or add ‘only’ what suits you best, or increase the amount of liquid items from the beginning. We only used 3 chicken breasts, as they were on the large size. All in all, the meal was delicious, not too ranch’y tasting at all & we didn’t have to add any salt, pepper, nada. Oh…and adding the extra soup, milk & sour cream, did not cause the meal to be bland, at least not for us. We mIght add some parmesan or cheddar cheese next time. Hope our comments help. Enjoy

    Crockin Girls

    It should be ok, since you put them in frozen Ashley. But it really depends on how hot your crock cooks, too. For some slow cookers that’s not too long, but for others that cook hot that long will really dry out your chicken. BTW…lovely picture!

  133. Ashley Rose

    Guess I should have asked before making but I have it in the crock at home – I am using 4 frozen breasts and have it set on low for about 7 hrs.. Think it will be alright or should I go home on my lunch hour? I don’t want it to burn!

    Hey Ashley…we usually make the whole bad of egg noodles and then mix them in at the end. Sometimes we use all the noddles in the package and sometimes we save some for a meal later in the week. It’s really a preference thing…how much sauce to noodle ratio do y’all like :) Some like to use the whole bag of noodles and some like more sauce in the dish and fewer noodles. I would just start adding them into the dish at the end until you get it the way y’all like it.

  151. Ashley

    Making this tomorrow and I’m wondering how many noodles you usually cook for this? I will be using medium size egg noodles. Also, do you think with 4 breast it will feed 4 adults and 4 kiddos that don’t eat much! ;) Thanks!

  152. Michelle

    Made this tonight. LOOOOOVE!!! Tip: To shred chicken inside a crock pot, I use a pastry blender. Like this: http://www.target.com/p/cuisipro-pastry-blender/-/A-10812583?ref=tgt_adv_XSG10001&AFID=Google_PLA_df&LNM=%7C10812583&CPNG=NoCPNG&ci_sku=10812583&ci_gpa=pla&ci_kw=

    It’s one of those things that you use to cut butter into dough and it works AWESOME for shredding chicken without having to take it out of the crockpot or burn your fingers. Just thought I’d share. :)

LOL Once it was cooked it was all I could do to keep my children from going back for thirds. If my son had stayed out of the crockpot, I would have had enough for 3 days.

    My family enjoyed this recipe. I added a can of chicken broth after cooking 4 hours and threw in the noodles. Left to run errands when I returned home 2 hours later it was ready. Noodles cooked just fine during that time. This will be a repeat recipe in our home. Will probably add some veggies in for last 2 hours.

    I found your site yesterday, and have marked three recipes to use in the coming week. I actually made the bacon ranch chicken today…YUM!!
    I didn’t have any cream of chicken so I substituted from this recipe on — http://bunsinmyoven.com/2011/05/04/cream-of-chicken-soup-substitute/.
    Thanks for all the wonderful ideas! I’m looking forward to looking through the whole site!

    Made this tonight and it was so good. Used real bacon cut up instead of BaconBits because I didn’t have any. I too added some extra water after reading other’s comments. We have left overs so I will be eating it for lunch tomorrow in a wrap.

    One of my favorites! I was disappointed that it isn’t in the cookbook because this is not one of my favorite comfort food recipes. Instead of noodles I add rice when it is finished cooking and mix it all together. We easily get 3 meals from this plus lunch for my husband!

    Lisa,
    If you put these noodles in uncooked, there is a high chance they will overcook. I would not…sorry

  194. Lisa C.

    just re read the receipe and see noodles are already cooked…could you had them and little broth at the end for an hour or so on low?

  195. Lisa C.

    How much longer due you cook when you add the egg noodles? Noodles arent already cooked right?

  196. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Yes, Jenna that’s the one :)

  197. Jenna G.

    This might be a silly question, but can you use condensed cream of chicken? I didn’t see anything but that in the grocery store.

  198. Sheliah H.

    This was sooo delicious! I added about half a can of chicken broth to thin it out a little at the end, just seemed a little thick. Will definitely be making again!!

    This recipe by far is my favorite. we have had it several times and it is a big hit at our house. I was thinking of pulling the chicken, like pulled pork, and serving it on a bun. I usually cook on low for about 6 hours and then put to warm until we eat. I always have to add water, but what I am thinking is not to add the water and serve as a sandwich with coleslaw and pickles. I’ll let you know how it is, I know it is going to be good.

    This would take 6-8 hours on low…I would lean towards the 6. If your cooker has a warm setting and is programmable, you can have it switch to warm after 6 and it will be all ready to eat when you get home.

  202. Kate B.

    Just realized I bought the ranch dips package instead of the ranch dressing…..hope it still turns out :)

  203. Stephanie W.

    Karin, usually you double the time when cooking on low. I will be setting my crock on Low for 7 hours; actually hubby will be setting this at 8:00! (I leave the house at 6:30, and do not get back home until around 5) My crock will turn to “warm” after 7 hours.

  204. Karin F.

    How long would this take on the low setting of the crockpot, I work a lot and am gone for 9 hours a day, could I just put it on low for that amount of time or would that overcook the chicken?

  205. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Sure, Brooke! The manly beef stew is another good one, too. ENJOY :)

  206. Brooke J.

    Omgosh this sounds amazing. I’m having trouble deciding between this and the Manly Beef Stew for dinner tomorrow!! (: If I make this one, would it be okay to cube the chicken before putting it in the cooker instead of shredding it later?

  207. Lisa S.

    Thanks, so it’s on the menu tonight!

  208. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Hey Lisa, the light sour cream will work, too. No worries ;)

  209. Lisa S.

    Can’t wait to try this! Has anyone tried light sour cream? I have all of the other ingredients, but my sour cream is light.

    Oh Courtney, good idea! I think cheese would only make it better!! You could sprinkle your favorite shredded cheese on top for the last 30 minutes of crockin’.

  211. Courtney J.

    What about adding cheese to the finished mixture? My family is big cheese eaters but I’m not sure what would be the best way to do it.

    Beth, You do not add any liquid to this yummy recipe. Since your noodles are already cooked, you do not need the added moisture. Shred chicken and add noodles at the end when you are ready to serve.

  216. Beth C.

    Sounds delicious! Giving this a try today. Can someone confirm that you do not add any water to the cream of chicken soup? (As the can instructions suggest.) Just doesn’t seem like there is a enough liquid to last 3 hours-4 hours…? (No noodles added yet.) Thanks!

    This was AWESOME!! I am all about throwing frozen chicken in the mix so after reading comments, I decided to not only use frozen chicken but also cook the noodles in the crockpot. It turned out great. I did as the directions said except I used 5 frozen chicken breasts (extra bacon ;) and added a can of cream of chicken, I turned it on high for 3 1/2 hours then added 3/4 cup of milk and 1/2 a package of egg noodles (a little over 1/2 lb)and cooked for another 30 minutes. It was so delicious.

    I just put this in my crock! I substituted 1/2 cup cream cheese & 1/2 cup milk for the sour cream because we don’t eat sour cream. I also added extra bacon and garlic. I think I may serve it over brown rice instead of noodles. Haven’t decided. Hope it turns out good!!

  222. Tricia K.

    My family loves this. I altered a little, using realy chicken and 1/2 cup sour cream with 1/2 cup of actual ranch dressing rather than the packet. I LOVE bacon, so I add more than the recipe calls for, too!

    I made this recipe and I didn’t have time to defrost the chicken. I put frozen chicken breast in and I cooked it on low for 10-12 hours. Turned out great!! I think the next time I make it I will put it over rice like some of the others have done!!

    Making this for dinner tonight. I also like to use frozen chicken and I put my noodles in right away. Added a cup of water to the noodles and chicken and poured the sour cream mix on top. I love having my noodles cook with the rest. Soaks up the flavor!

  228. Amanda B.

    I wish you would put in the recipe directions to add COOKED egg noodles. I didn’t realize until I had already added them uncooked and was reading the other comments. So I ran into the kitchen and added 1 cup of water and 1/2 cup of milk. Hopefully it is edible.

  229. Kristine K.

    This is my favorite meal right now – I used frozen chicken breasts and made my own bacon bits (by cooking fresh bacon and crumbling). I also used 1/2 pound of bacon….everything is better with more bacon! Then cooked it on High for 4 hours and it was perfect!

    Hey Erica,
    Sour Cream and Egg Noodles is on the same line. This has caused a little confusion and we are in process of reviewing our recipes on the website and making necessary corrections. Thanks for noticing…Happy Crockin’!

  232. Crockin Girls

    Crockin Girls

    Donna: You should use anywhere from 1/2 bag to whole bag
    If you don’t want to use egg noodles, you can try something like bow tie pasta.
    Joy: It does need to be the Ranch Mix instead of liquid dressing.
    Happy Crockin’ Y’all!

    I love this recipe! After making it a few times, I think I have finally perfected it with some modifications – using 2 cans of soup instead of 1, a little water and the whole pack of bacon pieces. I make the entire package of egg noodles and then have lots of leftovers. This is definitely one of my favorites!!

    I would love to try this recipe, but I have a child with food allergies. Any suggestions for replacing the dairy products (i.e., sour cream & cream of chicken soup)?

  236. Kim D.

    This is a great, easy recipe! For anyone a little confused about the noodles… you cook them before adding to the crockpot. I use about 3 cups(dry). We are a family of 5 so I always use 6 chicken breast (1/2′s), 2 cans cream of chicken and 1 1/2 – 2 cups of sourcream. Cook for 3 hours, remove chicken, shred and back to crockpot with COOKED noodles… stir together and serve!

    Made this dish today.. It was okay. I used a little less than half package of wide egg noodles after chicken breasts cooked 3 hours on high. If I make this recipe again I will cook the noodles seperate then add to the chicken. The noodles soaked up the liquid so I had to add 3 cups of water. I used cream of mushroom. My 3 and 6 year old children at least tried it. They didn’t like it. I didn’t use garlic in theirs but I did in mine.

    how much noodles? and after shredding chicken and placing the noodles back in to crockpot how long until noodles are done. I always have trouble using these type of noodles. Are there other noodles that might be less soggy to use?

    Can I use ranch dip mix instead of ranch dressing mix? That’s what I have on hand.

    On the ingredients, I think the sour cream egg noodles is confusing people. It’s 1 cup sour cream…then they should have pushed enter when typing this up..then add egg noodles.

    I found another similar recipe and it said use 1 C. of sour cream. Hope that helps. I’m trying this recipe today!
