Slow Cooking Thursday


It's Thursday and Sandra is once again hosting Slow Cooking Thursday. This recipe is one I got from a magazine a short time ago. It's easy and good!

Saucy Chicken with Veggies and Rice
3 cups sliced celery
3 cups sliced carrots
2 cups sliced onions
6 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 envelope onion soup mix
1 teaspoon dried thyme
1 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon dried tarragon
2 tablespoons cornstarch
1/2 cup chicken broth
hot cooked rice

Place the celery, carrots, onions and chicken in a 5 or 6 quart slow cooker. In a small bowl, combine the soup, dry soup mix, thyme, pepper and tarragon; pour over chicken.
Cover and cook on low for 7 to 8 hours until chicken is cooked through.
Mix cornstarch and broth until smooth, stir into slow cooker. Cover and cook on high for 30 to 45 minutes until gravy is thickened. Serve with rice.
Yield: 6 servings
For more slow cooking recipes, stop over at Sandra's.
