David Letterman Chicken (Crockpot Recipe)

Last night I made a meal in the crockpot that I hadn't made for years!  I think I had forgotten about it.  It was delicious and I need to remember this one.  It would also be great to serve to company.  It was easy to throw in the crockpot before work and everyone loved it!  I remember that this recipe was originally called "David Letterman chicken".  Supposedly, David Letterman's Mom used to make this for him.  I have no idea if that is true or not, but I made it for my family and we all liked it.  That's all I need to know LOL.

This is how I made "David Letterman Chicken" AT HOME MY WAY:

David Letterman Chicken (crockpot)

  • 4-8 boneless, thawed skinless chicken breasts (or whatever you like to use as far as chicken goes, bone-in, dark meat, whatever..)
  • Bacon (a piece of bacon for each piece of chicken)
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup sour cream
  • Salt/Pepper
  • Egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice (I prefer wide egg noodles)

Wrap each piece of chicken with a piece of bacon.  Lay the pieces of wrapped chicken in your crockpot.  In a small bowl, combine the cream of mushroom soup with the sour cream, stirring well to combine.  Pour over the chicken in the crockpot.  Salt & pepper a little bit to your liking.  Cover with the lid.

Turn on low and cook 8-10 hours.  Serve over wide egg noodles, mashed potatoes or rice. 


  1. We used to serve something similar in a restaurant that my family owned. But.... our sepcial touch was to add a small jar of Armour dried beef (no other brand works the same!!) Snip the dried beef into small pieces and put on the bottom of the crock pot then continue as your recipe suggests. Super good!

  2. Yum. Sounds delish! I'll have to try that. Thanks!
