With fall just around the corner and so many wonderful recipes being shared, constantly, amongst the blogging ladies....I thought that it would be neat to have a feature every thursday, just for crockpot recipes.
What do you think??? Do You have some great recipes to share, or perhaps you're looking for some delicious ones to give you a reason to pull out the ol' crockpot???
Well it's thursday ladies and you know what that means. Time to pull out those crockpots and put them to good use. If you want to join in, just grab the banner and add your name to Mr Linky :)

One thing I love is chicken and mushrooms, oh and stew, so what's better than everything in one pot huh???
I found this recipe on one of those small cookbooks that usually hang out (he he) at the grocery stores, right by the checkouts...I grabbed it a couple of months ago, and I've tried many of the recipes, haven't disliked one so far :)

1 can (10 3/4 oz) 98% fat-free cream of mushroom soup + half a soup can water
4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves, cut into 2" chunks
1/2 tsp salt
1/4 tsp black pepper
1/2 lb fresh medium-size white mushrooms, or a variety of mushrooms, including portobellow, cut-up
1 c. baby carrots
2 ribs celery, cut into small pieces
1/2 tsp garlic powder

  • Combine soup and water in slow cooker.
  • Sprinkle chicken with salt and pepper. Place in slow cooker.
  • Add mushrooms, carrots, celery and garlic powder. Stir gently to mix.
  • Cover. Cook on low 6 to 8 hours.

This stew is great over rice and since I LOVE mushrooms, I usually double the quantity.

Enjoy!!! OH and here's the best part, this stew is only 230 cal. per serving :)

Hi Sandra,

I hope you had a pug-buttless night. And I really hope you didn't step in anything last night.

Your chicken stew sounds wonderful. I always have chicken in the freezer.

I was tickled to discover I had a recipe to contribute today. I plan to keep my eyes open for one of those little books at the checkout in my grocery store. If I find one, I'll double check with you to make sure I'm not using the same one you found. :-)
