Notes About Crock Pot Continental Chicken with Dried Beef

  • The cooking time will be dependent on the size of the chicken breasts you use. For larger breasts, it will take on the longer end of the cooking spectrum, and vice versa with smaller chicken tenderloins. Cook them to 165 degrees F internal temperature.
  • Use as much or as little bacon as you want. More is more, right?
  • To lighten things up, use low fat sour cream and cream of mushroom soup.
  • I like to use the small packages of beef from the refrigerated section as opposed to the jars of dried beef. It’s more economical.
