Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff (with no canned soup)


Tuesdays and Thursdays are my slow cooker days. These are the days I depend on my favorite small appliance in my house, my slow cooker. If I don’t make a casserole for the first  person home to pop in the oven you can bet dinner is cooking in my slow cooker.

My family loves mushrooms. Me, not so much. I made this for a day I knew I would be one of the last people home and everyone before me would have dug out most of the mushrooms. You can still see a few on my plate but I used 8 oz of fresh chopped mushrooms in the dish so it started with plenty. It is just everyone kept eating them.

Verdict:

As I noted before this was a good dish for me to be able to leave cooking. The sauce was creamy and the chicken easily shredded after 8 hours on low. If you prefer your chicken cut rather than shredded cut down on the cooking time and cube the chicken before cooking it. I sometimes prefer cubed chicken to shredded chicken.

  3. I’ve been very busy lately. Sorry, haven’t been around in a while. Guess what? I’m not only starving, but I love mushrooms, especially Portabello. Thanks for another great meal.
