Chicken stroganoff in a slow cooker |


This has got to be one of the easiest recipes for slow cookers or crockpots and is quite delicious if I don’t say so myself. It is one of those recipes that you should keep and use as weekend hassle free recipe where you just don’t want to spend much time in the kitchen cooking. (4 people)

What you need

4-6 bonesless skinless chicken breasts sliced or cubed
1 heaped tablespoon butter or margarine
1 packet dry Italian salad dressing mix
250g tub cream cheese
300g consentrated cream of chicken soup (if you are using 6 breasts use the whole 425g can)

The process

Place the chicken pieces, butter and dressing mix into the slow cooker, give them a mix, place the lid on and cook on low for 5 hours.

Now add the cream cheese and the soup, mix, place the lid back on and cook for another 1/2 hour.

Thats that, a delicious meal with as little fuss as you can imagine.

Serve with pasta and a side salad.


Use a chicken and mushroom soup and add a handfull of sliced mushrooms when you add the soup.

Add about 1/2 packet of chopped bacon with the chicken.

    Hi there,

    I am at work for about 9 hours – guess that is a bit to long?

  3. Moira says:

    This might be a stupid question but why 5 hours for chicken breasts!?

    • Graham says:

      Hi Moira, slow cookers are just that, low heat and long cooking times to make the meat tender and enhance the sauces. Cheers G

    Hi G

    Just a few questions:

    1. If I don’t own a slow cooker what are my options – I have an oven and a cast iron pot?

    2.Where can I find dry Italian salad dressing mix and consentrated cream of chicken soup?


    Have a great day

    • Graham says:

      Hi Renz, a cast iron pot with a lid is all you need, follow the recipe and pop in the oven on 120 Celsius for as many hours. The ingredients are available at almost any supermarket and remember to ask someone oif you cant find them, they are there somewhere. Enjoy it G

    I have a slow cooker. I have battled to find recipes for said slow cooker. I have looked at the silly thing for months and not known what to do with it (husband won it in a golf day!!).
    However, I am now going to use it for sure having seen this recipe and the host of other recipes you have for a slow cooker! Thanks so much!

    • Graham says:

      Haha golf day prizes litter many homes in SA, enjoy it, now send him out to win you a food processor, Cheers for now G

    Chicken cooking for “5hrs” Are you sure it should cook that long??


    • Graham says:

      Hi Janine, Slow cookers are strange things that took me a while to get used to, but yes, 5 hrs. Cheers for now G

    Hey Graham, where do I go on your site when I want to ask a new question of you and not to respond to a comment?

  8. sheri says:

    Do you use the packet of dry Italian salad dressing mix as the powder? Or do you make the salad dressing as instructed on the packet?

    • Graham says:

      Hi Sheri, sorry for the late reply… been world cupping. You use the dry ingredients straight from the packet. Cheers G
