Need a hearty meal that doesn't come from a box or use canned soup? That's what I was looking for, too! Here is one that isn't hard to make at all...in fact, throw it together the night before and use the crockpot!
Clean Crockpot Chicken & Mushrooms
1 1/2 lbs Chicken Breasts
2 tbsp olive oil
16 ounces mushrooms sliced
1 medium onion, diced
2 cloves garlic, minced
1 1/2 cup chicken broth
2 tbsp wheat flour
salt and pepper to taste
chopped fresh parsley, optional
In a medium skillet, add oil and chicken. Cook on medium-high heat and sear until brown, flip, and brown the other side. Place in slow cooker.
In the same pan, add onion and saute until tender. Add to slow cooker.
Place the mushrooms, garlic, and parsley in an even layer over the chicken and onions in the slow cooker. Pour in chicken broth and sprinkle with salt and pepper and cook on low for 4 hours.
Remove the chicken from the slow cooker, and add cornstarch/wheat flour to the juices and mushrooms. Whisk until smooth. Return chicken to slow cooker and cook until the gravy is thick about 20 minutes.
Serve over brown rice or organic wheat pasta!
