Knock Your Socks Off Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage





I made this chicken months and months ago, and I keep forgetting to publish the recipe on my blog. It might not be the prettiest dish on the planet, but it's filled with so much big flavor, I can assure you it will be a hit!

It's easy to prepare, creamy, comforting, and family friendly.



Knock Your Socks Off Slow Cooker Chicken and Sausage

Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts
1 package andoulle sausage (Or you can use smoked sausage, kielbasa, use what you like most)
1 8 oz package cream cheese, room temperature
1 cup chicken stock
1/2 cup white wine (you can also sub this with beer or chicken stock)
3 gloves of garlic minced
1 small yellow onion diced
2 tbs grainy mustard 
1/2 tsp salt
scallions for garnish
serve over white rice or buttered noodles

Directions:
In a mixing bowl whip cream cheese with chicken stock, salt, garlic, mustard and wine until incorporated. 

Place, chicken and sausage in the bottom of your crock pot. Place onions on top. 

Pour cream cheese mixture over the top. 

Cover and place on high for 4 hours or low for 5-6 hours, checking it occasionally to make sure it's not thickening too much. If it is, add more chicken stock or wine. 

When you are ready to serve, you can place the meal in a baking dish and pop it under the broiler for a couple of minutes for some extra color. (this is optional, but I highly recommend it!) 

Salt and pepper to taste, serve over rice, quinoa, or pasta.

  2. Oh I so need to make this this weekend. Looking for easy meals to make on the weekend that we can enjoy then and have for quick leftovers during the week. Sounds like a winner!

  3. I'll be making this one my "busy day" this week. I'm from the "the-messier-it-is, the-better-it-usually-tastes" school of thought.

  6. If there's cream cheese in it there's a pretty high chance I'll be obsessed with it.

  9. I made this last night and doubled the recipe...I used stock instead of white wine. Any idea why the sauce would have been really watery? I was thinking it would be more of a sauce, kind of thicker, but this was really soupy...

    1. You could. However don't mix it in until the end.... otherwise the sour cream will curdle.

  13. No leftover!!!! I have a very large slow cooker and doubled the recipe and my 4 finicky daughters and my chef husband polished it off!! You have no idea what a feat that is! THANK YOU

    P.S. I got a little taste too! :)

  14. Chicken and sausage looked pre grilled. Do you pre-grill for a little char then put in crock pot?

    ReplyDelete

    1. Nope. If you read the recipe, you'll see that you can put it under the broiler after it's finished in the slow cooker.....

  15. sooo, I made this and it is so homemade tasting and yummy!! Next time I will count a can of beer as my "broth" liquid, in the end I drained off some of the bro thy gravy -- because I saved some in a sauce pan, and added in Velveeta and a few splashes of Worcestershire sauce!! Half our house has the coughing croop, and I can't think of a better warm, chicken and rice dish....Ps. I slow cooked mine in the oven on 300 for 2 and a half ours and used a whole chicken and half of a family sized sausage...Thank you, it was amazing!! Frm your buddies in South Texas!! :) Cheers

  16. This is an insanely tasty dish! Do you have any suggestions about how to thicken the sauce? Mine came out very thin.

  17. My family love this! I made my sauce thicker by cooking it down on the stove. This will be a crock pot staple in my house. Tks for the recipe.
