Ingredients assembled to make bacon wrapped sour cream chicken

Simple Ingredients!

CHICKEN: Crockpot chicken comes out super juicy and tender.  Try it with chicken thighs, tenderloins, drumsticks, even turkey thighs or drumsticks can be used. Make stuffed chicken breasts with slices of cheese, spinach or thinly sliced mushrooms.

SAUCE: It just doesn’t get any easier than using cream of mushroom soup and some sour cream for this sauce. But cream of chicken or cream of celery works too. Even a cup of bbq sauce will result in a creamy, new dish! Experiment with the flavors and create a signature sauce that everyone will love!

How To Make It!

When it comes to Crockpot cooking, there’s just a little bit of prep, and then dinner will be cooking while the chef has time to do other things:

  1. Cook the bacon. Drain the fat.
  2. Combine soup & sour cream in the bottom of the crock pot.
  3. Slice chicken breasts in half & season with salt & pepper.
  4. Wrap each chicken breast with the cooked bacon & set it on top of the soup mixture in the Crockpot.
  5. Cover and cook (per the recipe below). Garnish with sliced green onions and serve.

Crockpot Recipe Tips! 

  • Keep chicken breast crockpot pieces the same shape and size so they cook equally.
  • Once the bacon wrapped sour cream chicken is cooked, place it in a baking dish under the broiler to brown and bubble the cheese on top!
  • Leftovers can be refrigerated for up to 4 days. To freeze, try removing the bacon from the chicken and chop all the meat. Mix it in with the sauce and freeze to serve over rice or potatoes.

Time Savers

Save the bacon fat for extra flavorful cooking of meat and veggies. Reheat bacon-wrapped chicken breasts in the oven or on the stovetop, just be sure to add some milk or heavy whipping cream to up-level the sauce again!

  1. Great looking and sounding recipe! I only have bone-in thighs (they were on sale!) so would they work too? With the bone-in?

  2. I make mine with out Sour cream! I put a pak. of Cream Cheese in mine. it makes it taste good and thick like gravy!

  3. This looks delicious. One question. Does anyone know what I could use as a substitution for the canned soup?

  4. I just made this tonight for dinner it was so delicious. the chicken was so tender and flavor of bacon was awesome. mine didnt look like what is in the picture but i think i will make it again.. 🙂

  5. I am trying this now, have it it the slowcooker as im typing. hoping to be surprised in a good way. It looks great to me. and patti im sure if you used cream of chicken it would taste just as great and even enhance the chicken flavor.

  6. I hate mushrooms too but cooking with cream of mushrooms doesnt really seem to bother me you dont really taste the mushrooms. Bur you could probably sub in any kind of cream of ___ soup it would just change the flavor slightly

  7. This looks and sounds wonderful to me, can’t wait to try it. Anything in the crockpot on a 95-degree day is right down my alley! What is good to serve with it? And, I just have to ask, where do I get a plate like that? I — LOVE — IT!
