Cream of mushroom chicken (crock pot)


Cream of mushroom chicken (crock pot) (slow cooker)

Melt-in- your-mouth cream of mushroom chicken. Free range chicken breast fillets simmered in cream of mushroom soup, onions, wine, extra mushrooms and a touch of pouring cream are all it takes to make an amazing crock pot  meal that you set and forget 4 – 7 hours ahead of time.

If wine’s not your thing, use chicken or vegetable stock instead.  Serve with rice or mashed potatoes and a green vegetable.
