Slow Cooker Chicken and Mushroom Stew

Slow Cooker Chicken and Mushroom Stew

Al G

"This delicious chicken and mushroom stew is easy to make, flexible, and with layers of flavor it has a real comfort food richness but with a little zing! We do not add salt to this dish. We find it gets enough from the chicken stock and the soups and adding extra can overdo it. It can always be added to taste when you serve. We like it on brown rice or noodles but baked or mashed potato works well too."

The chorizo adds some zing to an otherwise bland dish. Very yummy over brown rice.

When finished, it had an inch of grease on top, was colorless and flavorless. I cannot recommend at all.

Wow, perfectly spiced heat. Love this over rice. Leftovers reheated the next day were even better. Recommend without hesitation and no modification.

Topped with homemade croutons and used baby portabellos. Turned out spectacular!

I used the mild Chorizo sausage to tone down the heat and it was still quite spicy. My husband loved it!

Loved the flavors, easy to make ... will try it again

EXCELLENT!!! Served it with garlic sautéed spinach from this site. And no cayenne added as I figured I had enough spice already.

I was disappointed because I was expecting chicken stew. Too spicy and missing something.
