You all know that I don’t cook that often in my crock pot or I would have so many more recipes here on the blog. But I keep trying nonetheless. Personally, I have found that anything with a sauce: chili, stews and meat on the bone turn out much better. Maybe it’s the crock pot I’m using, because I’ve certainly seem some with all of the bells and whistles like this one, but mine is simple with three settings: warm, low and high.

Crock Pot Chicken in a Sun Dried Tomato Mushroom Cream Sauce

So when I had sun dried tomatoes left over from the shrimp recipe I posted last week, I decided to turn it into a sauce to cook the chicken I had taken out for dinner. I made this recipe with bone in chicken breasts that were so large, I cut them in half; along with a few chicken thighs, chopped sun dried tomatoes, sliced mushrooms, my homemade marinara sauce (but you could use your favorite) and half & half.

This recipe for Crock Pot Chicken in a Sun Dried Tomato Mushroom Cream Sauce was delicious and so simple to make too. Start off by adding your chicken parts to your crock pot; than toss in chopped sun dried tomatoes and sliced mushrooms. Next, add your favorite marinara sauce and a bit of half and half. Give it a quick stir; then cove with the lid. Set your crock pot to high if cooking 2-4 hours or on low if cooking 4-6 hours. Serve over rice or pasta with a tossed salad. ~Enjoy!

    Cool recipe! I have been getting into crock pot cooking lately, so I am excited to give this a try. I am usually not a big “cream” fan but this looks really good.

    Thanks!
