Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Mushroom Casserole

 

This is a total comfort food post here… I made this dish trying to recreate a dish I used to make for my husband that used cream of soup yuckiness. I was so excited with how yummy and wonderful this casserole came out using real ingredients to make the sauce. It was so easy to make to, because you use your slow cooker to do all the work.

This Creamy Chicken Mushroom Casserole is fairly low carb. I used Joseph’s pita bread for the topping. If you need to be gluten free, I would use gluten free bread crumbs.

I used my food processor to create bread crumbs using low carb pita breads. My food processor is one kitchen appliance gets a big workout in my kitchen these days.

I know not everyone loves mushrooms. Adam and I love mushrooms. Mushrooms seem to go really well with chicken in creamy sauces. I make a Creamy Tomato Mushroom Cream sauce that is always a hit.

Let’s talk about crock pots. How wonderful are they for busy moms (and wives)? I didn’t start using my crock pot much until I was in grad school and working crazy hours. It was still very much important to me to cook for Adam and myself using whole foods, but we were both tired at the end of the day.

I would prepare my crock pot dish the night before, and keep it in the fridge until the morning. Then before leaving for work, I would just set the crock pot bowl in the machine and turn it to low. When we would get home, the house would smell amazing and dinner was ready! How more awesome can you have it?

I hope you love this Crock Pot Creamy Chicken Mushroom Casserole as much as we do!

  1. I almost ignored this post when I was scrolling through my Bloglovin’ feed when I saw “creamy” and “mushroom” in the name. I was thinking I don’t need a cream of mushroom soup recipe. I need real food recipes. Then I paid closer attention to what blog the recipe came from and realized wait a minute…this will be something I can use. Pinning for later 🙂 Thanks for providing a site that I know will have good recipes using real ingredients.

  2. I just made this for supper tonight and it was delicious! I do have a question though…are the pita crumbs supposed to be crunchy? It looks like they are in the pic but all I had was a bunch of mush on top of the chicken. It all got mixed in with the sauce and didn’t look very appetizing. I will definitely make this again but just leave off the pita crumbs.

    • Mine did end up crunchy… I think my slow cooker runs a little hot though, so maybe that is why. You could always add the pita crumbs at the very end and pop it in the oven to crisp them on top. Thank you so much for your comment!

  3. Hi Angela! I’m hopping over from Let’s Get Real. You had me at crock pot. I use mine all of the time. My kids keep me running and I rarely have time to cook, but I still want to eat real food. The crock has saved me from processed food. This recipe looks delicious. I’ve used cream cheese for the base of a cream sauce in the crock and it always comes out great. I’m a big fan of anything with mushrooms too. I printed this to add to my meal plan right away.

  4. Hi Angela! I’m stopping by from the Let’s Get Real Lnk Party. Crock pot meals are great for when you are busy and short on time to make dinner. This recipe is great comfort food. I like the combination of flavors and my family would love it. Thanks for sharing it with us.

  5. Angela, this recipe is a real winner! My husband and I both love it and it will definitely be making our rotation frequently. I didn’t add the pita crumbs just because we often don’t add that to our casseroles anyway but it was wonderful anyway! Thank you for this yummy recipe.

  6. I have never seen any crock pot in my country here. I just know about that around last month and get so curious about it. I live in Indonesia. Isn’t it embarrassing? The casserole looks so yummy. Your recipe shows me how fabulous this tool sounds. Thank you for sharing.

  7. This recipe is SO GOOD! My husband, who is usually not thrilled about chicken in the crockpot type of dishes loved it as well. It definitely will be making our monthly rotation. Thanks Angela.

  8. How much do you think the pita bread makes in volume–a cup? I want to just use the breadcrumbs I have on hand and don’t know how much to use. Thank you!

    • Hi Gina! I think it was probably closer to 3 cups of crumbs maybe – It was more than one cup for me… but you can use less if you want. I liked to mix in all in after it cooked to add a little more body to the sauce, which really made it seem like a true comfort food. thank you for commenting! Next time I will measure out though and let you know exactly what it was cup wise.

  9. I found this recipe on Pinterest and was planning on trying it tonight. I have seen other crock pot recipes that call for the chicken breast to be frozen and cook for 6 hours. So my question is, should these chicken breasts be frozen or thawed first?

  10. I have this in the crockpot now! It smells fantastic! For my breadcrumbs I crushed up pork rinds and mixed with the butter. Looks delicious!!! Thanks for sharing! (I plan to try your chickpea curry recipe soon as well!!!)
