Easy Crock Pot Recipes Mushroom Chicken

Awhile back I bartered with my neighbor Francisco and one of the items we traded was a can of cream of mushroom soup. In all my life I think I have purchased maybe 2 cans of cream of mushroom soup, so I wasn’t exactly sure what to do with it.

Then I looked in one of my favorite cookbooks Fix-It And Forget and found a recipe for mushroom chicken. Everyone loved it. Even me, and I don’t really care for mushrooms. I don’t know about you, but I LOVE my crock pot.

Here is the recipe:

I used a can of cream of chicken soup today for the first time in my life. How weird is that? Had it not been for my recent bartering session with Francisco, I probably would have gone my entire life with using it.

8 oz Egg Noodles {I used No Yolks brand}

2 cloves garlic, minced
1/2 teaspoon dried thyme
1/2 teaspoon dried basil
1/2 teaspoon red pepper flakes {totally optional}
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper

crock pot chicken soupDirections

Toss all the ingredients in the crock pot except the egg noodles and cook on low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

When the soup has finished cooking, add the noodles, and cook soup {with noodles} for an additional 20 minutes.

Serve with a crusty chunk of bread.

Easy Slow Cooker Recipes – Fully Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Easy Crock Pot Recipes - Fully Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Last week Robin from SoCal mentioned she served loaded baked potato soup for dinner. I couldn’t stop thinking about it. After 3 attempts  I finally came up with a recipe I not only LOVE, but my family loves too.

This recipe for loaded baked potato soup is perfect for a busy weeknight or any weekend you plan on tooling around in the garden all day, and don’t want to cook when you finally come inside. The best part {in my opinion} are the toppings. Load your soup up anyway you like it and dig in!

Ingredients

3 pounds baking potatoes, peeled, cut in 1/2 -inch cubes
1 quart chicken broth
4 garlic cloves, minced
1/4 cup butter
2 1/2 teaspoons salt
1 teaspoon pepper
1 cup milk {I used 1%}
3 tablespoons chopped fresh chives {topping}
1 /4 cup sour cream {topping}
8 slices bacon, cooked & crumbled {topping}
1/4 cup cheddar cheese {topping}

Loaded Baked Potato Soup

Directions

Combine the potatoes, chicken broth, garlic, butter, salt and pepper and cover and cook on low for 8 hours or high for 4 hours until the potatoes are nice and tender.

Once the potatoes have softened, gently mash them {do not puree, as you still want the potatoes to be a wee bit chunky} and stir in 1 cup of milk.

Ladle soup into bowls and top with sour cream, bacon, chives and cheese.

Yummalicious!
