I have a 'Yummy' board on Pinterest that is packed with delicious recipes I want to try out. For some reason, I never seem to get around to the majority of them. I'll make a couple things every now and then but most involve me going to the store and planning ahead. Being the lazy procrastinator that I am, that's pretty much always out of the question.
I had the day off and there for there was no excuse for me not to try out a pinned recipe.
I have been wanting to try out a delicious looking crock pot recipe for a while now, but never seemed to wake up early enough to get the ingredients into the crock pot before work. Thursday, I woke up, went to the grocery store, and came home to clean the house and start dinner.
Our Thursday night menu?
I got my recipe from the blog Cleverly Inspired, she has a lot of recipes that look amazing. I am definitely going to have to try out a couple more of her recipes since this one was SO good. Anyways, I changed her recipe a little bit to fit our taste and to use some of the stuff we already had.
2 8-oz. pkg. fresh button mushrooms, quartered
1/4 cup butter
1 0.7-oz. pkg. Italian dry salad dressing mix
1 10-3/4-oz. can condensed cream of mushroom soup
( I used the 98% fat free kind)
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 of a 10-oz. tub Italian cheese & herb cooking creme
Hot cooked angel hair pasta
The Italian dry salad dressing mix I used
The Philadelphia cooking creme- this stuff is great!
Mix together your butter, wine, cooking creme, Italian dressing mix, & cream of mushroom soup over the stove until it is all blended together evenly.
Pour the mushrooms in the bottom of your crock pot
Put the chicken over the mushrooms then cover it with the sauce.
I cooked it on high for 3 hours and then put it on low for the last 2 hours.
(total cook time: 5 hours)
Pour it over the pasta to serve.
It was DELICIOUS.
We had some left overs in the crock pot so I put them in the fridge to eat later. It was still really tasty the next day. If you are only cooking for two, know that the leftovers are still the bomb.com! Anddd, since I used 98% fat free cream of mushroom soup it wasn't too bad on calories. You can even make it more healthy by using fat free creme cheese, whole wheat noodles, a butter substitute, etc.
I will definitely be making this again in the near future!
I hope everyone had a wonderful weekend!
