This Crock Pot Mushroom Angel Chicken Recipe is an adapted version of our all time favorite slow cooker recipe on the site. So easy to throw together. Everyone asks for this recipe after tasting it!
Cris here. If you recall, last week I was sharing all kinds of homemade cream soups and our favorite recipes to make with them. Well then I found myself with all kinds of cream soup that needed used up, so of course I decided to make a version of my favorite crock pot recipe OF. ALL. TIME. I have been OBSESSED with that recipe ever since we found it in Gooseberry Patch’s Hometown Christmas Cookbook. Since then I have adapted it various ways and have found the perfect flavor and texture for our family. We absolutely LOVE it.
Crock Pot Mushroom Angel Chicken Recipe Notes
So, this time I changed a few things to incorporate some delicious baby bella mushrooms I had on hand. I knew they would be fantastic with the sherry sauce (you can still use broth if you prefer). I also used chicken tenderloins instead to allow this recipe to cook up a little quicker. You can use breasts if you’d like. Just cook for 4-6 hours on low.
We cooked this up in our Cuisinart 6 Qt 3 in 1 Slow Cooker to allow for one pot cooking but any 4-6 qt slow cooker should work just fine. Just note that 6 qts will typically take less time than 4 qts to cook up this recipe.
