Can I use any chicken?

Yes, you could use chicken tenderloins or boneless thighs, cook time will vary. You could also use cubed pork.

What should I serve this Slow Cooker Million Dollar Chicken and Potatoes with?

While this does have potatoes in it, it is wonderful over mashed potatoes or white rice.  You can also just serve it with a salad or some roasted veggies.

Can I freeze this?

While you can store the leftovers in the fridge for up to 4 days I do not think this would be very good frozen because of the potatoes and the creamy sauce could separate and the topping would be hard to crisp back up. 

 

Ingredients used

● Chicken breast- Cut these into bite-size pieces.
● Baby potatoes- Use whatever color you like.  Baby red, gold or a mix are perfect for this dish. 
● Cottage cheese-  I know cottage cheese can get a bad rep but in this dish it helps make a rich, creamy sauce. 
● Sour cream-  This also lends to the creaminess of this dish. 
● Cream of chicken soup-  This adds flavor and richness to the dish but you can switch it up and use cream of mushroom, cream of celery or cream of onion. 
● Garlic salt- For flavor, you could use fresh or jarred garlic if you prefer. 
● Onion powder-  You could use fresh onion if you like. 
● Sharp cheddar cheese-  This goes in the sauce and mixed in to the cracker topping. 
● Scallions-  These add just a bit of onion flavor but don’t skip out on these!  They make the dish. 
● Ritz crackers-  You want to use Ritz as they are buttery and lend to the richness of this dish.  I used their Garlic Butter flavor and it was amazing!
● Butter-  This is for the topping.
