Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken

Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken
I thought I didn't like Bob Evans. I thought I wad too good for Bob Evans.

Turns out? I'm not. And I love it. Specifically--I love their pot roast and their deep dish chicken noodles entree. So when I made this recipe (which I found in one of my cookbooks)-I had imagined it would taste somewhat like that.

I'm gonna warn you-it doesn't. BUT: it's great in its own right. Let's discuss.

First of all: I love how simple and comfy and cozy this is. Like...you'd imagine it would be the sort of thing your mom would make for you. And it's EASY-you just throw some stuff in your slow cooker and leave it alone until it's time to eat! It tastes pretty much like chicken noodle soup, but  creamy chicken noodle soup. AND even though all these pictures show the chicken over noodles...I highly recommend serving it over mashed potatoes! Then it becomes like an almost gravy/soup hybrid with the potatoes...and it makes it even more comfort food. So, next time you have a rainy day--make this slow cooker creamy chicken!

If loving chicken is wrong...I don't want to be right,

(If we changed that to "If loving A chicken is wrong...I don't want to be right", then it could totally be a quote from Gonzo about Camilla. Hehe.)
