Mmm, slow cookers are one of the best inventions ever!

Mama mia! Why haven’t I taken advantage of slow cookers more often in the past? I absolutely love it! My dad would occasionally make dinners in the Crock Pot and it would be soo delicious!

So, one weekend, I decided to make one of my dad’s Crock Pot dishes- chicken with Cream of Mushroom soup sauce. I added frozen mixed veggies, carrots, potatoes, and onions. Yum! I wanted to test out the slow cooker. Before I started my busy afternoon of errands, I put all of the ingredients in the Crock Pot and set the cooker to low for eight hours.  I started with the vegetables first. Chopped them up and put them in the pot. Then added chicken thighs and breasts, drizzled with extra virgin olive oil and seasoned with thyme, pepper, garlic and pepper seasoning, and Hawaiian salt. Finally, I added the Cream of Mushroom soup and diluted it with a little bit of water, so it wouldn’t be so thick. Stirred it to get the sauce evenly in the pot, covered it, set the timer, and left for the long day ahead.

When I returned home in the evening- violà! The chicken came out so tender and the dish amazing! This was served with egg noodles. Yummy! It was such a simple and easy dish. Just typing this and reminiscing at these pictures are making me hungry. I gotta go! Haha!

Have a great week!
