Slow Cooker Chicken with Mushroom Gravy


So, the picture is a bit strange on this dish but my kids both liked it. I needed a quick dish to drop in the slow cooker so that we could eat in shifts and I could be out the door quickly. I had a bag of chicken breasts and after a quick search through the pantry I found 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup. I hardly ever use canned soup but desperate times called for desperate measures.

A can of mushrooms later and dinner was in the slow cooker!

Verdict:

I had my son make brown instant rice to go with his dinner and he liked it. He thought it had a lot of flavor and the chicken was well cooked. I didn’t get to have any because by the time I got home at 10 pm everything was cleaned up. Both kids thought it would have been better if I actually made them mushroom gravy from scratch but I definitely did not have time for that!

I had the kids make a hearty spinach salad to go with the meal.
