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!
