This was the first time using Portobella mushrooms (Baby Bellas in this case) in my slow cooker, but it sure won't be the last.

I have a similar recipe but it calls for golden mushroom soup and onion soup mix is sprinkled on top at the end then baked in oven. I'm wondering if they are ok to use in crockpot in this recipe? Love that it can be made ahead as a Nurse I can leave instructions for dinner and my teenage daughter can finish it up if I get called in.

can you start with the chicken frozen, and just do it on low for 6hr?

I definitely needed more seasoning. But it was super easy and I will make it again.

Is the can of cream soup just dumped in as-is, or do I also need to add an equal amount of milk or water as per the usual instructions of such soups?
