Ok, so I have mentioned before that I am no gourmet chef when it comes to the kitchen! But, I am a mom, so I have to make meals for my family regardless of my skill level in the kitchen!
I have a few tried and true meals that I make often, usually meals that don’t require fancy ingredients or a whole lot of prep work. And – I use my slow cooker ALOT! So, I do have quite a few slow cooker recipes I will share with my readers from time to time.
The other day, I made one using only 3 ingredients. It is one my sister and I have made for a long time – and I don’t even know where it came from! I think it is just a variation maybe from a recipe that was on the back of the Stove Top stuffing box at one time, only using a slow cooker.
It is easy, the kids love it – and did I mention it was easy?!
Creamy Mushroom Slow Cooker Chicken
(I use Campbell’s soup and Stove Top stuffing – but you could use any brand you like!)
- Lay the chicken on the bottom of the slow cooker.
- In medium mixing bowl, stir about 3/4 of a can of water with the mushroom soup. You want the mixture to be thicker than soup would be – I often only use between 1/2 a can to 3/4 of water. There will still be a few lumps, but mix it as well as you can.
- Pour the mushroom soup mixture over the chicken.
- In the same mixing bowl, (I always use the same one so that I can get all of the mushroom soup mixture out by mixing the stuffing in with it!), mix up the stuffing following the directions on the box. The one I used takes one cup of water and a tablespoon of margarine. Mix it until all of the stuffing is moist, and pour if over top of the mushroom soup mixture.
That’s it! Cook on low for at least 6 hours. I normally put mine into the slow cooker around 9:30 and we eat around 5:00. I like to make sure my chicken is cooked REALLY well, (I am paranoid that way:-). My sister has made hers before leaving for work in the morning and let it cook on low all day.
It is a simple meal, and the smell of it cooking in the house all day is amazing. Trust me – your mouth will be watering once the smells start to go throughout the house:-)
