This Crock Pot Muenster and Mushroom Chicken is packed with so much flavor you will want a second helping ya’ll. Even the picky ones at my house, that don’t like mushrooms, scarfed this one down. My hubby and son are morally opposed to mushrooms.  I am CRAZY for them. You will notice when I cooked this I just put all the mushrooms over on my side of the crock pot – lol. Well they still mix up a little, but the boys thought this one was worth picking them

My Ninja 3-in-1 Cooking System has a stove top and crock pot feature (Hear me rejoicing ya’ll)

This makes me so very happy. If yours doesn’t just saute your chicken in a skillet. Lightly sprinkle your favorite seasoning on the chicken and put a tablespoon or two of butter in the bottom of your skillet and get those chickens a brownin’.

Saute Chicken

Remove from skillet and place in crock pot. In your skillet, warm up the cream of chicken soup and then pour over the chicken. Add  1/2 cup of white wine.  Any wine will do.  I am using chardonnay today.

NOTE for Crocks that have the Stove Top Feature:  I just improvise a little by pouring the soup in to one side pour in the wine. Stir it around a little, heat it up and then spoon it over the chicken.

Dump in your shrooms and you are all set.
Muenster and Mushrooms Crock Pot

Place the lid on and turn crock pot on low for about 4 hours. 30 minutes before serving take out 1/2 cup of the liquid and stir in 2 tablespoons of corn starch to make a slurry.

slurry

Pour this into the liquid of the crock pot and stir around.  This will thicken up that gravy. Then top the chicken with a slice of the cheese, put the lid back on and let melt.

Ingredients 

  • 2 – 3 pounds chicken breasts, boneless, 4 to 6 breasts
  • 1 to 2 tbsp butter, (if sauteeing chicken to brown) optional
  • 10.5 ounces can cream of chicken soup
  • 10.5 ounces can cream of mushroom soup, optional, this will give you extra sauce- can use just one can in total *see note
  • ½ cup white wine
  • ½ – 1 teaspoon salt, or to taste
  • ½ – 1 teaspoon pepper
  • ½ – 1 teaspoon garlic powder, or 2 to 3 garlic cloves, minced
  • 8 to 16 ounces mushrooms, to taste
  • 2 tbsp corn starch
  • ¼ cup water
  • 4 to 8 slices slices muenster cheese, or cheese of choice

Instructions

  • Spray a 5-7 quart slow cooker with nonstick cooking spray.
  • To brown chicken (this step can be skipped): Heat skillet to medium-high heat. Add in butter. Place chicken in and saute in skillet, until browned – approximately 3 minutes on each side. 
    This can be done in a multi-pot slow cooker, if it has the feature. Remove chicken from multi-pot slow cooker if using one
  • Add soup to the crockpot insert, wine or chicken stock, salt, pepper, and garlic, then stir to combine. Place the chicken in the soup mixture and top with mushrooms.
  • Place the chicken in the soup mixture and top with mushrooms.
  • Cover and cook on high for 2-3 hours or low for 4-6 hours, or just until chicken is cooked through.
  • 30 minutes before the chicken is done, remove the chicken and stir in cornstart slurry. Add the chicken back in and place 1 to 2 slices of cheese on each chicken breast. Return lid. Cook for 30 minutes until the cheese has melted.
  • Set to warm until ready to eat or serve immediately.

Notes

Cans of Soup Note * This will depend on how you want to serve the chicken. If you want to serve a solid or sliced breast with sauce, use only 1 can. If you want extra sauce for pasta or potatoes or if you want to pull the chicken and serve over a starch or biscuits, I would use 2 cans of soup. You can still keep the chicken breast solid, but there is more sauce, and the cheese melts into the chicken and sauce. Both ways are delicious, but different presentations. Factor in the weight of the chicken breast/sauce ratio as well if pulling or shredding the chicken.

    1. I haven’t made it with drumsticks, but I bet it would be delicious. Please let me know how it turns out if you try it.

    Thanks for the great looking recipes. Everything we love. I was wondering though, is there something i can use besides the wine? I can’t wait to try this when our son comes for dinner on Saturday.
