1. Place chicken in crock pot. Pour chicken broth, soup, onion, and seasonings over chicken. Cook on low for 6 hours.

    We do a stack but it's a lot different from this one. I'll have to blog about it soon.

    This really sounds great..like Tanya, I love using my crock pot.:)

    I make this for my husband on his birthday! Your gravy sounds much better then mine, think I will make it this week! I do toasted almonds and green onions in addition to your toppings.

    This actually sounds pretty good!

    I lived in Hawaii for 6 years and I was thinking….eww….instead of chicken to make it REALLY Hawaiian you could use Spam!! LOL They love their Spam in Hawaii (and ok, I won't lie…so do I!) :)

    Yum, I haven't made these in ages! They are so yummy, and just taste awesome! We add sliced green onion and chopped or sliced almonds as well. Thanks for the reminder that these are so yummy!

    I've never had this – so I am saving it to my recipe file! This looks so delish!

    I’ve never tried the peppers/tomatoes. We have these all the time but top with pineapple, toasted coconut, macadamia nuts or almonds, chow mien noodles, and green onion. The kids like mandarin oranges and cheese as well. I will have to try your topping list to mix it up a little!

    I think the first time I saw your recipe it had milk and cream cheese, I think, instead of cream of chicken. Is that possible?

    • Jamielyn posted on July 23, 2014 at 9:51 pm (#

      Hi Michelle! I did update the recipe a little bit. Some people were having issues with the milk curdling!

    About what size crockpot did you use for this recipe? I’m guessing it may need to be a smaller one like a 4 qt? Or did you use an even smaller crockpot than that? Thanks.

    • Jamielyn posted on June 5, 2014 at 5:09 pm (#

      I use a 6 qt crock pot, but any size should work just fine! :)

    I was just wondering how many this serves?

    • I Heart Naptime posted on May 18, 2016 at 6:06 pm (#

      This serves about four adults (less if you have teenagers, more if you have little kids!). :)
