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 just love them cooked almost any way, but they really add a lot to this very simple recipe.

With only three ingredients like my classic salsa chicken, plus some salt and pepper, this is a no fuss simple dinner idea.

  1. This is so easy and delicious! I do have a question though, cause mine came out pretty soupy instead of creamy…it’s still enjoyable, but I’m wondering what may have caused that? Haha 😆.

  2. Hi. I don't have a slow cooker but do have a Le Creuset pot. Online it says 190 degrees is the same as a cooker on low. Think this will work?

  3. 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.

  4. 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?

  5. I added sliced small gold potatoes, a dry ranch seasoning packet and a small can of spicy v8. It smells wonderful and tastes amazing.

  6. 🙋💁 I've been bantering with my husband for over 3 hours regarding the required amount of soup ratio vs. the amount of Portobello Mushrooms in the recipe for our 8 qt. Crock pot. He said it's fine. I'm deeply struggling to understand "fine" when only 1/8 of the mushrooms were able to become covered with the soup!

    We have been together since 1993. This is the FIRST time he's agreed to try preparing a crockpot recipe with me! He's the chef. It's only the 2 of us. Aaaaaa!! I have an entire 300+ multiple Pinterest boards hinging on the success of this recipe ...which he said was extremely vague from start to finish.

  7. I make something similar to this but I add 1 8oz. cream cheese to it and mix it with the soup. You can also try the flavored cream cheese's like chive and onion, garden vegetable and garlic and herb for more variety!

  8. This sounds delish but one viewer asked about chicken broth and cream cheese in place of creamed chicken soup. Your thoughts?

    1. I feel like that might work well, although I do like the depth the condensed soup adds. I would try it and add extra seasonings to compensate.

    2. Bob, I add cream cheese and mix it with the soup. It turns out great! You can also use the different cream cheese flavors for some variety like garlic and herb.

    1. Salt and pepper are a must! Then, I like to add garlic powder from time to time. It really is flexible with what you can add. Fresh herbs are also amazing.

    1. Rossanne Strachan, did you ever get a reply? I'm scanning the comments and I can't see one. Could make a big diff in end flavor profile to have crm of mush vs. crm of chick.

      1. So sorry about this confusion. It is most definitely the Cream of Chicken. Thanks for sharing this so that I could update the post.

  9. Can you convert this to Keto friendly by omitting the soup, use chicken broth and cream cheese instead?

    1. Hi Lou! Thanks for dropping by. It's not a silly question at all. Just add the chicken raw. Let me know if I can help with any other questions you have. I hope you enjoy the recipe if you get a chance to try it out. 🙂

    1. Ooh! Onions sound tasty! I bet they would be great with these flavors. Thanks for letting me know you liked it. 🙂

  10. You could try fouling some of the liquid out of the mushrooms to make it less soupy. I will be trying this recipe next week.

    1. That's a great idea Cindy. Let me know how it turns out for you. I think you'll find it yummy! 🙂

  11. Its in my slow cooker now. I added a dash of heavy cream and a handful on chopped vidalia onion and a dash of organic garlic pepper. Smells fantastic already! Going to toss a handful of shredded sharp cheddar cheese towards the end ..maybe. Taste test will let me know. Thank u for sharing this.

    1. It was my pleasure to share this delicious recipe! The additions you made sound heavenly too. I bet it will taste as great as it smells cooking! 🙂

    1. I am so glad you liked it, I bet rosemary was really incredible with this. What a great addition, I'm going to have to try it soon!

    1. Hey Danielle, did you use a small can of soup? Did you use fresh mushrooms? The soup is soupy, especially when it's piping hot. We use the liquid as a gravy and re-pour over the chicken. Hope that helps!

    1. I did not have soup......soooooo I used jelled broth from another chicken dinner. I added a jar of mushrooms, 8 ozs. of cream cheese, 8 ozs. of sour cream and a small bag of green lima beans......On down the road the brain is wondering about the thickening......milk and flour, as in gravy and threw in 12 perogi's and a big handful of egg noodles. I'm hopin' it will be delicious. Everything chimes together. I love experimenting...:))) I got 2 more hrs., on high.........sooooo I'll let ya know the results. Love, Joanie :))

  15. I used to make this in the oven... well kind of. Instead of mushrooms and cream of chicken I just did chicken with cream of mushroom over rice. DEFINITELY going to try this!!! Yum!

    1. That is such a GREAT idea! I'll have to try that one too! Sounds scrumptious! It's amazing how many awesome meal combos you can come up with using cream soups! Yum!
