Chicken in the crock pot

If I put some refrigerated chicken breasts in a crockpot with 1 can of cream of chicken soup (that's it, nothing else), how watery/soupy will it get?

I am hoping it won't get too watery/soupy, especially since it's not frozen. I plan to make chicken enchiladas with it.

Depends on how much chicken you use. If you use a good amount of chicken and cook it longer it should thicken up.

It should not be to bad at all. It will be soupy not watery.

I would toss the chicken in the crock with some water (or even water + bullion or broth) then when it's cooked, drain, shred and add your cream of soup.

Do you prefer the soup in your enchiladas? I cook chicken for enchiladas in the crockpot as well. I usually just use broth or water to cook the meat in and then drain it and shred the meat. Then I usually stir in salsa or enchilada sauce. I have never used any type of soup.

Ditto!

Any time recipes call for shredded chicken I just throw a few chicken breasts in with some chicken broth, cook it, drain it, shred it up. If I remember I save some of the broth it cooked in and stir it back into the shredded chicken (not a lot, just a little bit) and it makes the chicken extra juicy!

Works well with chicken, can of tomatoes and a packet of taco seasoning, then shred chicken once it's done and make enchalidas or tacos.
