Come home to delicious chicken breast slow cooked in a creamy mushroom sauce - a hearty dinner!

Ingredients

1
tablespoon butter or margarine
1
medium leek, sliced (1 cup)
2
cups sliced baby portabella mushrooms
12
boneless, skinless chicken breast halves (about 3 3/4 pounds)
1
teaspoon seasoned salt
1/2
teaspoon coarsely ground pepper
1/4
cup chicken broth
1/4
cup dry white wine
1
tablespoon Dijon mustard
1/2
cup half-and-half
1/4
cup all-purpose flour
1/4
cup sliced drained roasted red bell peppers (from 7-ounce jar)

Directions

  • 1 Melt butter in 12-inch nonstick skillet over medium heat. Cook leek in butter 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Stir in mushrooms. Cook 2 minutes, stirring occasionally. Remove mushroom mixture from skillet.
  • 2 Sprinkle both sides of chicken with seasoned salt and pepper. Cook chicken in skillet 3 to 5 minutes or until browned on both sides. Layer chicken and mushroom mixture in 5- to 6-quart slow cooker. Mix broth, wine and mustard; pour over chicken and mushrooms.
  • 3 Cover and cook on low heat setting 4 to 5 hours or until juice of chicken is no longer pink when centers of thickest pieces are cut.
  • 4 Remove chicken from cooker; cover to keep warm. Mix half-and-half and flour until smooth; stir into mixture in cooker. Cover and cook on high heat setting 10 to 15 minutes, stirring occasionally, until mixture thickens. Stir in bell peppers. Serve sauce with chicken.

Expert Tips

Chicken breasts are not often recommended for use in slow cooker recipes because they tend to dry out and become stringy. That's not the case with this recipe. The chicken breasts stay moist because they are smothered with creamy sauce and cook just 4 to 5 hours.

If baby portabella mushrooms aren't readily available, sliced button mushrooms will also work in this delicious dish.
