Cream Of Mushroom Soup And Chicken Crock Pot

As a mushroom growing enthusiast, I have always been fond of incorporating fresh mushrooms into my cooking. One of my all-time favorite recipes is cream of mushroom soup and chicken cooked in a crock pot. This hearty and comforting dish is perfect for those chilly days when you crave a warm and flavorful meal.


  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 1 can of cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 cup of chicken broth
  • 1 cup of sliced fresh mushrooms
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 3 cloves of garlic, minced
  • 1 teaspoon of dried thyme
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • 1/2 cup of heavy cream
  • 2 tablespoons of butter

For me, using fresh, homegrown mushrooms elevates the flavors of this dish. The earthy aroma of the mushrooms adds a depth of flavor that simply cannot be achieved with store-bought varieties. If you have the opportunity to grow your own mushrooms, I highly recommend using them in this recipe.


  1. First, I season the chicken breasts with salt, pepper, and dried thyme. Then, I place them in the crock pot.
  2. Next, I sauté the mushrooms, onions, and garlic in butter until they are softened and fragrant. This step is crucial as it brings out the rich flavors of the mushrooms.
  3. Once the mushroom mixture is ready, I pour it over the chicken in the crock pot.
  4. Then, I mix the cream of mushroom soup with chicken broth and pour it over the chicken and mushroom mixture.
  5. I set the crock pot to low heat and let everything simmer for 6-7 hours, allowing the flavors to meld together and the chicken to become tender.
  6. About 30 minutes before serving, I stir in the heavy cream to add a luxurious creaminess to the dish.

Throughout the cooking process, the aroma of the mushrooms and savory chicken fills the kitchen, creating a sense of anticipation for the delicious meal to come.


This dish pairs perfectly with a side of fluffy mashed potatoes or buttered egg noodles. The creamy sauce coats the tender chicken, creating a decadent and satisfying meal that never fails to impress.

When I serve this dish to family and friends, their eyes light up with delight as they savor the comforting flavors. It’s a dish that brings people together and warms the soul.


Creating cream of mushroom soup and chicken in a crock pot is a labor of love. It’s a dish that celebrates the rich, earthy flavors of mushrooms and the heartiness of chicken. Whether enjoyed on a cozy night in or shared with loved ones, this recipe holds a special place in my heart as a celebration of good food and cherished company.
