Shared Recipe Savory Crock Pot Mushroom Chicken

Dec 29, 2013 on

"This is a variation of Angel Chicken, but with my own preferences and the addition of mushrooms. Creamy, rich and filling, this recipe is perfect for a cold winter day. One of my favorite things to cook for our guests - everyone loves it!"

This has become one of our absolute favorites. It';s a little heavy on the dairy, so it';s more of a special occasion dinner. I use regular cream cheese and regular cream of mushroom soup. I also add sliced mushrooms - usually a package of white mushrooms and as many portabellas as I can afford. I serve over white rice. Oh my gosh - ...

No delineation about whether or not the rice and chicken should have been cooked before putting them in the oven? My assumption was that it was NOT to be cooked, since there was no specification in the ingredient list, nor was it listed as a step in the cooking process. I had to boil the rice in the salsa mixture to try to cook the rice, then r...

Oh man. This is divine, but after reading all the reviews I changed a lot. I used Honeycrisp apples because that's what I had. Instead of the pie crust recipe I used TWO pre-made crusts, brought to room temperature and then rolled together. This provided a thick enough crust to hold in the juices and couldn't have been easier. I also baked t...

I loved the sauce - delicious. However, I cooked the noodles too long, and the pork. Take the pork off the stove as soon as it's no longer pink! And don't try to remove all fat - some fat helps.""

This was very good, but you should definitely triple the broth and halve the amount of meat. I have enough for an army sitting in my fridge from the leftovers; however, it makes very nice pulled pork sandwiches the nest day. I made a mistake and used a rice vinegar instead of the rice wine, but later added some regular white wine and it didn't ...

This was delicious, and took barely any time at all. In fact, it's one of the easiest things I've ever made, yet tasted like I slaved away for hours. I'll definitely be adding this to my "regulars" file. Only thing I changed was using cherry tomatoes cut in half instead of the plum tomatoes (cherry tomatoes are SO sweet right now; I just could...

I enjoyed this recipe, but wish I would have read the previous comments first. There does in fact seem to be a step missing here - whether cooking the filling for 10 minutes first, or refrigerating the pie for several hours before cutting. If you follow the instructions as written and try to eat the pie immediately, it will indeed be runny. Ho...

Dec 7, 2011 in Food Network Community Toolbox on

This has become one of my specialties, but with one adjustment. I prefer to use dried beans that have been soaked and drained rather than canned. The canned beans add a starchiness that I don't care for; whereas the dried beans seem to soak up the flavor of the soup better. Other than that, this is hearty enough for a cold winter night or can ...

Very tasty! I was impressed with how the flavors came together. I used ketchup instead of tomato paste (didn't have any), and only 1 pound of beef, not lamb (beef was what I had...I would like to try lamb one day). I subbed two packages prepared instant mashed potatoes for the mashed potato recipe...these potatoes turn out a little gluey after...
