Hello! Today I am sharing one of my family’s ALL time favorite crock pot recipes!!! Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Marsala is made with chicken thighs and mushrooms cooked in a delicious and savory garlic and marsala wine sauce, with heavy cream added at the end that REALLY makes this recipe SING!
Don’t skimp on browning the chicken and mushrooms, first. It definitely adds so much color and flavor, and just takes a couple extra minutes.
I wish you could smell my kitchen right at this moment
Mushrooms are my son’s FAVORITE veggie. He LOVES this recipe!
I feel SO accomplished when I put the lid on my slow cooker, knowing I have a DELICIOUS dinner ready to go.
And BY ALL MEANS, do not ask me if you can swap the heavy cream for something lighter, the answer is no. 😉
