"One of the best crock pot meals I have ever made, quite delicious and so easy, put it all in the pot, go do whatever for the day and come home to a wonderful aroma though the house and fantastic meal. Found it in a Kraft foods little pull out, it called for 1/2 cup cheez Whiz,which we do not care for so i used 1 cup of sharp cheddar cheese, also added some cayenne pepper to the sauce."

I made this using low-fat cheddar cheese and low-fat cream of chicken soup and this turned out perfectly. I used red bell peppers instead of green and boy was this a tasty meal!!! Made for the Billboard Recipe Tag Game.

Great Easy Tasty recipe! We really enjoyed this. I had to make a few changes to use what I had on hand: used red bell pepper, white potatoes, half Sweet Hungarian paprika/half smoked paprika, frozen boneless skinless chicken breast tenders, healthy choice cream of mushroom soup with added chicken bouillon granules, and omitted the cayenne and parsley. I did use the sharp cheddar and worcestershire sauce. The chicken turned out nice and tender! I served it with mixed veggies. Very nice comfort food meal. Made for the Billboard recipe tag game.
