Crock Pot Chicken With Cream Of Mushroom Soup

1

I made this Crock Pot Chicken With Cream Of Mushroom Soup the other day and it was absolutely delicious! It was so good that I had to make a YouTube video of it because my husband wouldn’t stop talking about how much he loved it!

Crock Pot Chicken With Cream Of Mushroom Soup is full of hearty chicken, mushroom and celery, which makes this dish so delicious. Kids love to eat it.

Crock Pot Creamed Chicken is tender, juicy and full of flavor. Cream cheese and cream of mushroom soup create a rich and creamy sauce for the boneless chicken breasts which cook up so tender, you don’t even need a knife to cut them. A packet of Ranch seasoning mix provides plenty of flavor. I like to add in some fresh mushrooms to compliment the flavor of the mushroom soup. Serve over rice for an easy weeknight meal.

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken cooks up so tender and ranch seasoning and cream cheese make it super yummy.

The crock pot is my favorite way to cook chicken. It comes out tender and juicy every time which is really hard to accomplish when cooking boneless chicken breasts using other cooking methods.

To make Creamy Crock Pot Chicken, I like to first cook the chicken with the ranch seasoning and just a bit of water. Since crock pot recipes tend to get watery and I like a thick and creamy sauce, after 3 hours I discard about half of the liquid. The chicken still has plenty of ranch flavor, but the sauce won’t be so watered down.

Then I add the mushrooms, cream cheese, and cream of mushroom soup and cook on LOW for another 1 to 1 /2 hours. The cream cheese gives the sauce so much richness and creaminess, and I don’t know about you, but a packet of Ranch seasoning on just about anything tastes great to me.

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken cooks up super tender with tons of flavor from ranch seasoning mix and cream cheese.

A packet of Italian Salad Dressing mix can be used instead of Ranch, and feel free to use cream of chicken soup instead of mushroom.

I feel certain a can of cheddar soup would be delicious as well. Some cheese flavor is always good.  🙂

SLOW COOKER CREAMY CHICKEN AND MUSHROOM

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Mushroom in Creamy Mushroom Sauce, a delicious dish that takes comfort food to a whole new level. Super easy to make, big on flavours, and a favourite with little and big tummies. A great family dinner recipe.

THE MAGIC OF A SLOW COOKER

My easy slow cooker recipes adventure continues. After my slow cooker chicken soup, which my girls absolutely loves (we and are talking about fussy kids here), now there’s a bug favourite of mine: the one and only slow cooker mushroom chicken.

Served with the creamiest, fluffiest, best mashed potatoes in the world and a finger-licking delicious creamy parmesan mushroom sauce, this mushroom chicken is one dish of a kind.

It’s comforting (great for this miserable January weather), it’s a complete meal (carbs, protein, vegetables in one dish & ONE POT), and you need not worry about slaving away for hours in the kitchen.

How great is that, all you have to do is dump the ingredients in the crock pot (slow cooker), and hours later you have your dinner ready. Another creamy chicken recipe that could be cooked in the slow cooker is Creamy Lemon Chicken.

HOW TO MAKE CREAMY MUSHROOM CHICKEN IN THE SLOW COOKER + COOKING TIME

Now, depending on how quickly or not you want your creamy mushroom chicken ready, this dish is cooked in about 3 hours on high, and about 5 on slow. What I absolutely love about slow cooking is not only the idea of not having to do much, but also the fact the meat is cooked to perfection.

This chicken is absolutely delicious, tender, juicy, flavourful. And it’s the same brand I buy regularly, yet it’s never been as tasty as now when I use the slow cooker.

All you have to do is add the whole chicken breasts to the slow cooker together with stock, sliced mushrooms, thyme and garlic and cook until the chicken is tender.

HOW TO MAKE MUSHROOM SAUCE IN THE SLOW COOKER

What a sauce this is! One delicious creamy garlic mushroom sauce for all the mushroom lovers out there. I certainly love mushrooms, although good quality mushrooms are not easy to find in supermarkets. Don’t you think most of them are tasteless?

  • Once the chicken is cooked, take is out, then add the double cream( WHICH MUST BE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE, otherwise it curdles), parmesan and cornflour (corn starch) and more garlic, if you wish, and leave to cook for about 5-10 minutes so the sauce can thicken.
  • Return the chicken to the crock pot, and that’s it, your perfectly cooked slow cooker mushroom chicken is ready.

Isn’t it easy? Absolutely delicious, minimal prep, a family-favourite recipe any time of the year!
