Crockpot Mushroom and Cream Shredded Chicken

PS Crockpot Mushroom & Cream Shredded Chicken 2

I went on a jog yesterday, just 3 miles, and felt so good after!  It’s been a while since I popped in my headphones and took a jog around the neighborhood.  My form of workout is Crossfit.  I go about 4 days a week.  I  LOVE crossfit, everything about it – the community, the movements, the group classes, how every workout is different, are just a few of the many things I love about it.  But, it’s good to get out there and do other things, as well.  I need to remind myself that on some of my days off from crossfit, that I would enjoy a nice little run around the neighborhood!  It’s also a good time to listen to music.  Remember when you were younger, middle school/high school days, and you could just sit in your room for hours listening to music?  Those were the days..

This meal was inspired by a dish my dad used to make when I was younger.  I don’t know his exact recipe (I guess I could just ask him) but I remember it had something to do with sour cream, mushroom, and chicken.  I wanted to make my own version, but I’ll definitely ask him for his recipe to make sometime.  I’m sure his is better than mine, because he’s a damn good cook!  I’m sorry the recipe below is mine, not his! 🙂  I promise it’s tasty though!

what you need:

  • 2 chicken breasts (about 1.5 pounds)
  • 1 soup can cream of mushroom
  • organic chicken broth (1 soup can full)
  • 1/2 cup sour cream
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1 teaspoon onion powder
  • salt/pepper to taste
  • Lundberg Wild Rice Blend 

what you do:

  1. Place chicken breasts in the crock pot, and salt and pepper each side.
  2. In a microwaveable bowl, add cream of mushroom and 1 can full of chicken broth.
  3. Stir together, microwave 30 seconds, stir, microwave an additional 30 seconds, stir.
  4. Add sour cream, microwave for 30 seconds, stir, microwave for 30 seconds, stir.
  5. Add garlic and onion powder, stir well.
  6. Pour mixture oven chicken, in crock pot.
  7. Cook on high for 4 hours or low for 8 hours.
  8. About 45 minutes before chicken is done cooking, or once it’s done and crock pot is set on warm, make your rice.
  9. Follow instructions on rice package.  I made mine in a rice cooker.  I added about 2 tablespoons extra of water, so it can cook a little bit longer to soften just a bit more.
  10. Using 2 forks, shred your chicken in your crock pot.
  11. Scoop chicken and some creamy sauce on top of your cooked rice, Voila!

I steamed some broccoli and had that on the side to complete my meal:)
