  • Cook and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from skillet. Add onions to reserved drippings; cook 15 to 18 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally and adding flour, pepper and half the bacon to skillet for the last minute. Whisk in broth until blended. (Onion mixture will be thick.)
  • Add chicken to slow cooker; cover with onion mixture. Cook on LOW 4 to 5 hours (or on HIGH 2 to 3 hours). About 15 min. before ready to serve, cook noodles as directed on package, omitting salt.
  • Drain noodles; place on platter. Top with chicken, reserving onion mixture in slow cooker. Mix cream cheese spread, milk and garlic powder until blended. Add to onion mixture; mix well. Spoon over chicken; top with parsley and remaining bacon.

Serving Suggestion

Serve with hot steamed green beans.

How to Safely Store Bacon

Store unopened packages of bacon in the refrigerator until the “Use by Date” stamped on the package. Once opened, wrap tightly and refrigerate up to 1 week. To freeze bacon, wrap the unopened, vacuum-sealed package tightly in freezer-safe material, then freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using.

Special Extra

For easy cleanup, line slow cooker with plastic liner bag before filling with ingredients and cooking as directed.

Ratings & Reviews

Rated 4 out of 5 by from A tad bland but still great This was great. I missed that it was supposed to be made with the cream cheese spread and ended up just whipping a regular cream cheese block up instead which worked. I also doubled the garlic powder because I love garlic. This needed way more salt though. I know there was bacon, but I think the center cut bacon is not as salty? Definitely had to add salt to the dish. With the salt addition this was great, and easy, easy clean up too...

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I have made this with split chicken breasts. I have made this with split chicken breasts. I heated a pan and browned the skin of the breasts to get more flavor and less chicken fat. It also cuts down cooking time.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from It was wonderful to come home after an evening of kid activity and have this awaiting! It was wonderful to come home after an evening of kid activity and have this awaiting! The house smelled great and my picky eaters gave it the stamp of approval. I couldn't find any of the kraft cooking cream, so I just added some garlic to the cream cheese. It seemed fine. The family is begging me to make this recipe again soon!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from This recipe is Delicious! This recipe is Delicious! The flavor is fantastic!!! It was a HUGE hit with my family. Even my picky eater loved it. My husband already asked me to make it again and I just made it a couple of days ago, he said it is "Craveable". This is a keeper for my recipe book! Thanks Food and Family for another great recipe!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We loved this! We loved this! My stores aren't carrying cooking cream either (don't know why) so used onion/chive spread w/ chick stocked add to thin it out and used breast; also baked it in the oven instead of slow cooker. Flavor was GREAT!

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Kind of bland. Kind of bland. I added chopped garlic and did not have the cooking cream so used onion and chive creamed cheese. It still needs something more. The flavor is good but still bland. It is missing a kick that it really needs. I would add some more herbs and spices to it.

Rated 3 out of 5 by from My family thought the savory garlic cooking cream was way over-the-top garlicky. My family thought the savory garlic cooking cream was way over-the-top garlicky. I made a white sauce to dilute the garlic sauce and they liked it better. We also felt it lacked salt, so I suggest including the salt when you cook the noodles.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from This turned out horrible. This turned out horrible. Not only could I not find the necessary cream (all 3 stores in my area do not have it), but when I substituted a little cream cheese mixed with garlic, it just turned into a creamy mess with almost no flavor.
