Recipe: Slow Cooker Angel Chicken

I'm always looking for more easy slow cooker recipes - chicken and mushrooms are perfect for a weeknight dinner and this Slow Cooker Angel Chicken is a great meal - it's quick and easy - and I know you'll love it! 

In the crockpot, you put the mushrooms on the bottom - then add the frozen chicken on top.  

Melt butter in a sauce pan. Then you add cream of mushroom soup, Italian dressing mix, cream cheese and chicken broth. Stir until it's all blended and melted into a sauce.

Then you pour the melted sauce over the frozen chicken and mushrooms.  

Cook it for 4-6 hours on high (or 8-10 on low) - remove the chicken and shred it - then add it back to the mushroom sauce.

You can serve this over rice or egg noodles - I chose rice because Larry's a big fan and cooked that up in my rice cooker. It was good - I think that next time I would use as many mushrooms as recommended in the recipe (I just didn't have that many at the time) and I would double the sauce - it was a bit skimpy.

Larry just saw me typing this up and said, "Oh that was good!" - that's a victory for me!
