Crockpot Chicken and Broccoli

So, I happened to have a couple of bags of frozen broccoli that I got for free (I’m a couponer) and was looking for something I could use it in. I came across this recipe about a dozen times on Pinterest (on many different sites ) and it was easy and used the crockpot – the best kitchen appliance EVER! – so I thought I’d give it a shot.

Recipe:

  • 1 can of cheddar soup
  • 2 cans of cream of chicken soup
  • A bag of frozen broccoli
  • 2 cups of milk
  • 1/4 tsp of garlic powder
  • 2 to 3 cups of Chicken – cooked and shredded (I used about 3 cups.)
  • Cooked noodles

Directions:

  1. Throw everything in the crockpot and mix it up.
  2. Cook it for three to four hours on low.
  3. Throw it on top of some noodles and you’re done.

Once you chuck everything in the crockpot and let it cook it comes out like this:

I served it over egg noodles.

Verdict: Fail

Nobody really loved this. It was edible, but rather bland. Despite the many recipes on the web for this dish that called it “cheesy” there wasn’t much of a cheese flavor to it. If you prefer your broccoli mushy (we do!) then you will definitely need to cook it longer. Somebody that knows more about cooking than I do could probably doctor this up to make it more appealing. Definitely not my biggest cooking fail, but I won’t be making it again.
