Day 169: Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken and Mushrooms

Serves 4

1 1/4 lbs chicken tenders or boneless skinless chicken breasts cut up into bite size pieces
4 oz canned mushrooms, drained
1 oz packet of dry Ranch dressing
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz cream cheese (reduced fat works great)

Combine chicken and mushrooms in slow cooker. Sprinkle ranch over the top. Dissolve bouillon in one cup of boiling water. Pour over chicken. Make sure chicken is completely covered by liquid. Cook on low for 3-4 hours. Stir in soup and cream cheese. Stir until melted and warmed. Serve over rice.

This recipe is very similar to the creamy chicken and the creamy ranch chicken. It has great flavor and I love the mushrooms. I give this 5 stars! It is perfect for Sunday dinner. If you want to make it more healthy use fat free cream of chicken soup and fat free cream cheese. If you need to lower the sodium use half of a bouillon cube in one cup of water.

  1. I filled in the survey. I heard about your blog on: "3 sisters clip'n coupons & sharing recipes" blog. I think this will inspire me to use my crock pot more. Sadly it is a very underutilized piece of equipment in my kitchen. Thanks for the great ideas.

  2. I made this today and it was delicious. I used fresh mushrooms and boneless chicken thighs. Very tasty good.

  3. Couldn't you kill 2 birds with one stone and use Cream of Mushroom soup? Sounds delicious!

  4. I made this for dinner tonight and loved it! The sauce, I mean, come on! You could eat that with a spoon by itself. I will for sure be making this again.

  5. We made this last Monday for supper. My husband who is super picky absolutely loved it as did the picky kids and myself. It is definitely one of my favorite recipes.
