This is my version of a recipe I have had for years. I have no idea where I got the original recipe but I have made so many changes that I re-named it. Also the serving amounts are just estimates because my family of 4 eats large portions compared to the average family. The milk or chicken broth in the recipe are optional because the soup mixture may be the desired consistency if the chicken makes enough of its own juice.
- 4 -6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
- 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of chicken soup
- 2 (10 3/4 ounce) cans cream of mushroom soup
- 8 ounces of fresh sliced mushrooms
- 1 onion, sliced (I like mine in chunks)
- tony chachere creole seasoning
- 8 ounces pasta noodles (any type you prefer)
- 1 tablespoon butter (optional)
- milk or chicken broth (see **) (optional)
- Mix together soups, mushrooms and onion.
- Season with salt, pepper and garlic to taste.
- Place in slow cooker.
- Place chicken breast on top of the soup mixture, season with salt, pepper, garlic and Tony's.
- Cook on high for 4- 5 hours, or low for 8- 10 hours.
- Cook noodles as directed and add to slow cooker at the last 20 minutes of cooking time.
- At this time add the butter if using.
- **If the mixture is thicker than you want it to be this is the time you add the milk or chicken broth to thin it to your desired consistency.
Yum. My husband came home from work and said, "Something in here smells go-o-o-od!" No, wasn't my perfume. It was your chicken! We all enjoyed this. Thanks for this recipe. I made it exactly by the recipe, and did add the optional butter (Hey, I'm Southern. We like our butter.) I will make it again.
I thought this was just ok. I must not have used enough Creole seasoning, because it was bland. The recipe really should have stated how much of the seasoning to use, or at least a rough idea. Don't think I'll make it again.
Really liked this! Did not add salt since the Creole seasoning has it already, but felt it was too salty, so I will see what I can do to cut back on the salt next time - maybe low-sodium soups and use a little less of the Creole seasoning. I made whole wheat spiral noodles in advance, and threw them in for about 10 minutes to warm them up, and it came out great. Thanks so much!
