How to cook "Chicken Surprise"

Why "Chicken Surprise"?

 This all came about when I moved to Michigan to be with Andrew. I was cooking chicken for dinner one evening, Andrew happened to look at the ingredients that I was combining and with a smile on his face he asked if we where having "Chicken Surprise" for dinner. That's when I knew there had to be a story behind that cute little smirk. It was funny the more I thought about it, so I needed to know the story. I called and asked Linda, Andrew's mom if she knew the story, yep she did and it actually started with Rose's husband, Joe. From what I understand he was over at his parents house one evening, not long after they where married, and Linda had asked what was for dinner, he said with that same familiar smirk and half smile on his face  "oh probably Chicken Surprise". Rose had no idea that he was calling anything that she made with chicken, "Chicken Surprise"!!!. About 6 months ago I said something to Rose about Andrew calling our dinner Chicken Surprise and how he came up with the name. Rose jokingly confronted Joe about it and with a proud grin on his face he said yes he got that from me!! So now whenever Rose and I want to try a new chicken recipe it's our inside joke that it's "Chicken Surprise" day. Let me know what you think of the following recipe, it sure is a favorite in our homes.

Chicken Surprise

Crock Pot
1 large can cream of chicken soup
1 large can cream of mushroom soup
1 bag Egg Noodles
1/2 tsp. or to taste garlic salt
1/2 tsp. or to taste pepper
1 tsp. parsley flakes
1 tsp. onion powder
3 large chicken breasts

Put the cream of chicken, cream of mushroom and 1 large can (use the empty chicken or mushroom soup can) of milk in your crock pot. Let it warm up for about 10 minutes. Then add the garlic salt, pepper, parsley flakes, and onion powder. Bring it to a boil and add the chicken. Make sure your chicken is bite pieces. When its 20 minutes before dinner time, add the egg noodles let them soften and you’re done. This only really needs to cook in the crock pot for about 5 hours. The aroma in the house is wonderful!!!!
