Recipe for Creamy Mushroom Chicken in the Crockpot

Ingredients

4 oz. button mushrooms, sliced
Approx. 1 tsp garlic powder
½ tsp black pepper
½ tsp Italian spices

Put chicken in crockpot. Add mushrooms and spices. Pour soup over ingredients. Cook on low 5 to 6 hours or on high 3.5 – 4 hours. If sauce is too thin for you, add flour to thicken. Serve chicken breast slices in mushroom sauce on a bed of egg noodles and a side salad or veggie. Serves 4.
