I joined the new group in JAP and all these recipes being made in a Crock Pot got me to thinking maybe my smothered chicken could be cooked in a Crock Pot too. It was a success.

Member's Choice We love Crock Pot dinners and this is a delicious one. Once cooked, the chicken is fall-apart tender. The sauce is super creamy. This would be fantastic over rice or mashed potatoes. The flavors remind us of a creamy chicken soup. Comfort meal to the max.

How To Make crock pot smothered chicken

Test Kitchen Tips
Everyone can get sidetracked in the kitchen... including us. We didn't cut our chicken breasts into pieces and placed them whole into the slow cooker. So, if you mess up as we did, the chicken will still be tender.
  • Cleaning the chicken breasts of fat.
    Clean the breast of all excess skin and fat. Lay on cutting board cut into (I was able to yield 4) parts.
  • Chicken breasts in a slow cooker with broth and wine.
    In Crock Pot pour in 2 cups of broth and wine. Place the chicken into the pot.
  • Heavy cream and flour mixed together in a bowl.
    In a bowl, pour in heavy cream and 2 Tbsp of flour and mix until no lumps are in the cream.
  • Flour mixture poured into the slow cooker.
    Pour into the pot over the chicken.
  • Seasonings added to the slow cooker.
    Grate the garlic into the pot and add all seasoning at this point. Place cover on Crock Pot turn to high and let cook 3 hours or check to see if the chicken is tender and done before cutting off Crock Pot. I cooked on high because I was home to watch and see how it was cooking and wanted to have it done quickly. All Crock Pots vary in temperature of cooking so you will need to adjust according to your type of Crock Pot.
  • Adding flour to sauce after chicken has cooked.
    This makes a very tender breast and the sauce is very good poured over rice or mashed potatoes. I even mash cauliflower up for my meal to take place of potatoes and pour this sauce over them. If you prefer a thick gravy with your meal then remove the chicken, dip out some of the sauce in a bowl and mix maybe about 3 Tbsps of flour.
  • Mixing until sauce is combined and ready to heat in slow cooker until thicker.
    Mix till no lumps in the mixture. Pour back into the sauce and let heat and stir till thick as you would like it to be. I do use it as a sauce and make stuffing with my meal too.

    You will see egg noodles in my picture but I do not recommend them with this sauce. It did not complement this dish at all. You really need to serve over rice or potatoes or mashed cauliflower if you are watching your carbs and weight.
