Chicken Delicious

I make a crockpot staple at our house called Chicken Delicious. You ask, what's that? Well, it's a tasty, yummy, hearty, easy dish made mostly out of chicken breasts or tenderloins and cream soups. To get started, put some baby carrots at the bottom of the crockpot. They keep the chicken from sticking until it all gets going good. Put the chicken breasts on top. Squeeze on some lemon juice. Shake on some paprika. Dump on some bottled mushrooms. Drip on some worchestershire sauce.


You need two cans of cream soup. Cream of Mushroom, Chicken, Chicken Mushroom, Celery or some combination work good. Today was Cream of Mushroom and Cream of Chicken Mushroom. Just pour 'em on top.

4-6 hours later depending on if the chicken started out frozen and what temp you keep the crockpot on, you have a yummy soupish looking meal. I serve with mashed potatoes, and the gravy is oh so good on top of them.

Joey even got to eat off a dinosaur plate tonight. It was definitely dinosaur night at our house.

I'm going to out you and say that I have that recipe in my Crock Pot cookbook. Not that paper one that come with Crock Pots, but Rival's hardcover cookbook that is advertised with all the paperwork that comes with a Crock Pot.

I've never tried it, but I've a pack of chicken breasts in my fridge, a couple cans of cream of mushroom soup, and a need for something to do with them. Tasty-Two-Step Chicken (http://www.campbellskitchen.com/recipedetail.aspx?recipeSource=search&recipeID=39&page=0&index=1&SearchText=%7c%7cchicken+cream+of+mushroom&LastIndex=false) was coming to mind, but I like the idea of the carrots at the bottom and the shrooms on top, too. Yum!

But "Chicken Delicious" is such a funny name, isn't it?

I didn't mean to imply that I made this up... In my case, it came out of the Fix-It and Forget-It Cookbook - Feasting with your Slow Cooker. However, I doctor it and make it my own with the carrots, change of creams, added mushrooms and sometimes onions, etc. I left out the wine this time, but I do usually put it in. If you make it, ENJOY:-) You really can't go wrong with what you throw into a crockpot;-)
