Slow-Cooker Smothered Chicken

I got this recipe from Sandra Lee's book, Sandra Lee Semi-Homemade Slow Cooker Recipes.   If you have absolutely NO time to prepare a meal, then this one is for you!  Throw it together in the morning in the slow cooker and have a fabulous "comfort food-ish" meal waiting for you when you get home! Whip up a side of cous cous or rice and you're all set.

What you will need...

1.5 lbs  Boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1  med-large onion cut into 1/4" slices
1  16-oz can   baby corn (drained)
1  8-oz package of pre-sliced mushrooms
2 cans of Campbell's Creamy Chicken Verde Condensed Soup
salt/pepper
thyme

*** Before I start...  let me say that I've never been able to find the Chicken Verde soup.  I've simply used Cream of Chicken and it's been fine.  I've even used the Healthy Request version which has a lot less fat and it's still delicious.  I threw in some fresh green garlic scapes and Voila! it became VERDE.  Also... the recipe calls for 1.5-lbs of chicken breasts but it could easily handle 2-lbs.

Place the sliced onion, mushrooms and baby corn in the bottom of the slow cooker.  Place chicken on top.  Season the chicken.  Pour the soup over the chicken.  Cook on low for 4-6 hours.

I know this comment comes late, but I wonder if you can substitute frozen corn for canned corn? Great site, by the way.

Hmmm. Well, I personally like the baby corn, I don't know if you can get that in frozen (I know I can't). I don't see why you couldn't use frozen corn, kernels would just give it a different texture. What do you think Shell?

Thanks for visiting, NaySue! Hope to see you back soon.

Funny you should ask that! I actually used frozen corn in a similar recipe. I cooked the corn separately and added it into the slowcoooker at the very end. Worked just fine. Give the baby corn a try though... they're great!
