Mama’s Goin’ Out Crockpot Chicken

20130603-182817.jpg

This is a recipe I came up with to feed my family on nights I go out. Mommy has to get her social on. My kids love this recipe. I think they look forward to nights I leave the house (my husband stays with them), because of this dish. I have seen similar recipes, but I never have a packet of dry italian seasoning mix on hand. So, I use a little italian dressing and add a couple of extras.

This is chicken seasoning. It is amazing. I first learned about it through some of my husband’s coworkers. Adding a little of this to any chicken recipe enhances the flavors. I buy mine at Costco. You can also find it in the Mexican food aisle at the grocery store.

Ingredients

1-1.5 pounds boneless skinless chicken breasts (or chicken tenders)
1/4 cup italian dressing
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 Tbsp. Worcestershire sauce
1 tsp. italian herbs dried
1/2 tsp. salt + 1/4 tsp. at end (if needed)
1/8 tsp. ground pepper
1 tsp. chicken seasoning
1/2 cup sour cream
Package of noodles or rice to serve chicken over

I always spray my crockpot with Pam before I cook something in it. I do not want to have to scrub a pot.

Place your chicken breast in the crockpot. Pour 1/4 cup italian dressing into a 2 cup measuring glass. Add cream of chicken soup. Add all of the other ingredients (except sour cream, extra salt and noodles) and mix together. I use a fork.

Pour mixed ingredients over chicken breast. Cover with crockpot lid. Turn crockpot on and cook mixture on high for four hours.

Cook noodles or rice according to package instructions. Set aside.

Remove chicken.

Stir sour cream into the soup mixture. If I want the sauce thicker, I will sometimes mix two tablespoons of flour with one-two tablespoon of water in a separate small bowl. You want it pourable. Not thick. Then stir the mixture into the sauce until completely incorporated. I have just purchased this new item, Wondra. It is an instant flour. I have not tried this yet, but I imagine a little of this would work, as well. In fact, it might work better!

I am “goin’ out” on Sunday (Happy Birthday, Amy!) and making this dish that night. I am going to try some Wondra. I will update this recipe based on which item works better.

For now, I recommend my flour mixture, because it is tried and true.

Cut chicken into bite sized pieces. Taste sauce. Add 1/4 teaspoon of salt, if needed. Add chicken back into crockpot. Cook for 10-15 minutes until the chicken and sauce are warm again.

Serve over noodles or rice. Eat it, or do like I do, and skip out. Believe me, they won’t even miss you.

Have fun! Enjoy!

  1. This sounds delicious! Definitely making this week. I think you will like wondra. I use it to make gravy because I never could get the knack of creamy gravy with flour. Thank you for this recipe!

    • Thanks mom! My husband put Wondra in the mix and it worked perfectly! I could not buy it here, so I ordered it from Walmart. I bought four containers. I was scared to run out! Everyone says your gravy is the best!

      I love you!
