Crock Pot Chicken Stew With Mushrooms

Total Time

I attended a cooking class and the chef prepared this at home since it was a crock pot recipe but showed us how to prepare the meal during our class. It is a meal I prepare often. When our son and his wife come for dinner she always requests chicken stew. I serve it with polenta. The gravy is awesome!!

This was DELICIOUS. I had extra mushrooms too because I <3 mushrooms, but it turned out perfectly. Served it over mashed potatoes and added a bit of extra salt because I also <3 salt. Will definitely make this again, and will enjoy the leftovers over the next couple days.

I've made this a few times now - each time I love it more. I make it when I know I'm having friends over or when I know I'm not going to have time to make dinner during the week. I live alone, and I find it freezes pretty well. Love it over rice, or wide noodles.

This is a nice slow cooker chicken dish. Loved the addition of the mushrooms and added a bit more than the recipe called for because DH requested it. I did not have the tapioca and I started to thicken the sauce with a cornstarch/water slurry, but decided not to as I didn't want to change the flavor of the tomato sauce. Since I was serving this dish with rice, I left the sauce just as it was. Made for Spring PAC, April, 2013.
