So…school just started back up on Monday and talk about being TIRED. Wow. Don’t get me wrong…I love being back in a routine…but I am spent by the end of the day. The last thing I want to do right now is spend hours in the kitchen when I could be spending time being worn out by my boys. Ummm…actually, an hour or so of *quiet* time in the kitchen is sounding kinda good. HA! If you’re anything like me, you are ALL about putting your crock pot to good use while you’re at work. I’m ALL over it. For real. And it’s even better when your crock pot meal tastes “gourmet”. That’s pretty much how we felt when we had this little number. File this under “Gourmet Crock Pot Meals”…it definitely tastes like one!
SLOW COOKER ANGEL CHICKEN
adapted from Cleverly Inspired
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 8oz. pkg. baby bella sliced mushrooms
1 can condensed golden mushroom soup
1 stick of butter
1 pkg. dry Italian salad dressing mix
1/2 cup chicken broth
1/2 of an 8oz. tub of cream cheese spread with chive & onion
rice or pasta
Not too many ingredients. Just like I like it…
The original recipe called for white wine instead of chicken broth and two different types of mushrooms. Good ol’ Wal Mart only had these baby bellas on hand and I didn’t have any white wine available that I wanted to waste on food :) HA!
First things first…
Melt butter in a saucepan and add the Italian salad dressing packet. Stir in the soup, chicken broth, and cream cheese until it combines and melts.
Place the mushrooms on the bottom of your crock pot and place the chicken breasts on top.
Pour the sauce mix on top of the chicken, cover with lid, and cook on low for 5 hours!!!!
Can you smell the deliciousness?!?!?! I completely forgot to take a picture of the yumminess, but you’ll serve over cooked rice or angel hair pasta. We had ours with rice because we just happen to have it on hand. However, it would’ve been AMAZING over pasta!!!!
If you’re lookin’ to impress Mr. Spouse and spend an insanely SHORT amount of time in the kitchen, whip this one up as soon as you get a chance!! This is definitely a crock pot meal you need in your arsenal!
