Caution's Precise Cooking

Last week, I used this slow cooker recipe and it was a great success with my family.  The significance of this is that more picky eaters per capita live in my home than in any other home in America.

Into the slow cooker, place:
  • chicken (I used boneless, skinless breasts)
  • 1/4 cup (I used far more) chicken broth (I used beef broth)
  • 1 can cream of mushroom soup
  • mushrooms
Four hours passed before I realized the slow cooker was turned on, but NOT plugged in.  DON'T do that.

After the chicken has cooked 5 or 6 hours in the slow cooker, in a different pan mix 1 cup sour cream and 1/4 cup flour.  Add that to the juice in the slow cooker and allow it to cook 15 to 30 minutes further.  I allowed it to cook for 5-10 minutes.

Whether you follow the recipe or my meanderings, it will be dee - lish!!  That's a promise :)

i have done that it makes me so darn MAD! I have been tempted to use beef stock with chicken but have resisted so far... have been known to use chicken stock with beef though and I LOVE LOVE LOVE my crock pots/ slow cookers ...i have one of every size :) love love love em!
ohhhh what i do with this kind of recipie... instead of thickening it I put rice in and let the rice soak up the excess liquids the rice gathers in the flavor... of course got to make sure there is PLENTY of liquid in there when adding rice!

The recipe does sound yum-o though,

I totally feel your pain on the crock pot fiasco. Been there, done that. Although, I can't wait to try again so I can sample your recipe!! SO many people have posted about food today. I think I need to eat some lunch:)
