Recipe Tips

  • If you want to slim down the ingredient list, then you can leave the potatoes out of the recipe. The result will still be delicious and packed full of flavor. Of course, it may not feed as many people.
  • Some diced celery is an excellent addition to this slow cooker chicken and bacon casserole. Still, it is not necessary for a tasty dish.
  • You can use other cuts of chicken such as drumsticks or chicken breasts. I prefer to use chicken thigh as I find they cook the best in a slow cooker.
  • Always add cream at the end of cooking as it has a high chance of splitting.
  • The bacon does not have to be crispy, but I do highly recommend precooking it.
