As you can tell, I’ve decided to bust out my crockpot! This Mushroom Chicken came out delicious. I mean, DELICIOUS. For all of my lazy cooking days, my crockpot has saved my life time and time again. It’s easy, it’s convenient, it doesn’t turn my kitchen into a hot box, it’s just great all around. I wanted to cook something that could be thrown into the crockpot, I also wanted to use the chicken that I already had in my freezer, but I also wanted something that we haven’t had before. This ended up being the perfect solution. I paired this meal with mashed potatoes and spinach, but this can definitely go great with anything you have on hand as an alternative. From start to finish, I think this chicken took 10 minutes to prep, and 2 ½ to 3 hours in the crockpot to cook. I also took about 8 to 10 minutes to sear my chicken on both sides before adding it to the crockpot.
3 large Chicken breasts
Mushrooms (Sliced or chopped)
½ Yellow Onion
2 Cloves of Garlic (mined)
OR Garlic Powder
1 (16oz) Cans Chicken Broth
1. Chop your yellow onion, and slice or chop your mushroom (Preference)
2. Add 4 teaspoons of Olive Oil to pan over medium heat. Add minced garlic.
3. Season your chicken and add to pan. Sear on both sides for 4 or 5 minutes until brown. Do not cook thoroughly.
4. Add your seared chicken to your crockpot, along with mushrooms and onions. (TIP: If you prefer a more sautéed flavor, feel free to sautéed your mushrooms and onions FIRST before covering your chicken)
5. Season your crockpot with salt and pepper.
6. Add chicken broth to your crockpot. Enough to cover the bottom.
7. Cover and cook for 2 ½ to 3 hours on high heat.
