The magic of a slow cooker

My easy slow cooker recipes adventure continues. After my slow cooker chicken soup, which my girls absolutely loves (we and are talking about fussy kids here), now there’s a bug favourite of mine: the one and only slow cooker mushroom chicken.

Served with the creamiest, fluffiest, best mashed potatoes in the world and a finger-licking delicious creamy parmesan mushroom sauce, this mushroom chicken is one dish of a kind.

It’s comforting (great for this miserable January weather), it’s a complete meal (carbs, protein, vegetables in one dish & ONE POT), and you need not worry about slaving away for hours in the kitchen.

How great is that, all you have to do is dump the ingredients in the crock pot (slow cooker), and hours later you have your dinner ready.

It can’t possibly get easier than that. My pans are on indefintie leave at the moment, I haven’t used them much since I have falled in love with my slow cooker.

And I have a feeling that this love is going to last forever and ever!

How do you make mushroom chicken in the slow cooker?

Now, depending on how quickly or not you want your creamy mushroom chicken ready, this dish is cooked in about 3 hours on high, and about 5 on slow.

What I absolutely love about slow cooking is not only the idea of not having to do much, but also the fact the meat is cooked to perfection.

This chicken is absolutely delicious, tender, juicy, flavourful. And it’s the same brand I buy regularly, yet it’s never been as tasty as now when I use the slow cooker.

And plus you know it’s always cooked through. If my 2 pregnancies taught me something, is that you can never be too careful when it comes about raw or undercooked chicken.

I would rather cook it for longer, than risk food poisoning. So, if you leave it to cook for a bit longer, that’s absolutely fine, nothing will happen.

How do you make mushroom sauce in the slow cooker?

What a sauce this is! One delicious creamy garlic mushroom sauce for all the mushroom lovers out there.

I certainly love mushrooms, although good quality mushrooms are not easy to find in supermarkets. Don’t you think most of them are tastless?

So, when I do find some good mushrooms, I always like to make this fantastic mushroom sauce. You can always make it on the hob too, but in the slow cooker you job is even easier.

Once the chicken is cooked, take is out, then add the double cream( WHICH MUST BE AT ROOM TEMPERATURE, otherwise it crudles), parmesan and cornflour (corn starch) and more garlic, if you wish, and leave to cook for about 5-10 minutes so the sauce can thicken.

Return the chicken to the crock pot, and that’s it, your perfectly cooked slow cooker mushroom chicken is ready. Bon appétit!
