Welcome to this slow cooker/crockpot blog. I believe slow cookers are the best thing to happen to modern day cooks. I used mine often when I worked outside the home and continue to do so even in retirement. It is so nice to put food on and forget about it. Slow cookers also allow us to cook many things we would normally have to use the oven for; what a relief in hot Texas weather! Some of these recipes are mine, many are ones I have collected over the years.

This basics of this recipe are from an old Midwest Living magazine.

4 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1-1/2 pounds)
1 8-oz. pkg. fresh button mushrooms, quartered
1 6-oz. pkg. fresh shiitake mushrooms, stems removed, caps sliced (I use button, again)
1/4 cup butter
1 0.7-oz. pkg. Italian dry salad dressing mix
1 10-3/4-oz. can condensed golden mushroom soup
1/2 cup dry white wine (May substitute chicken broth, if desired.)
1/2 of an 8-oz. tub cream cheese spread with chives and onion
Hot cooked rice or angel hair pasta, for serving

Melt the butter in a saucepan and stir in the dry salad dressing mix. Using a wire whisk, stir in the soup, wine or broth, and cream cheese spread; stir until melted and smooth.

Cut up mushrooms and place in bottom of slow cooker; place chicken over the mushroom. Pour the sauce over the chicken.

Place lid on cooker and cook on low for 5 hours.

Serve with the hot rice or pasta, if desired.
