Angel Chicken

Slow Cooker Angel Chicken - chicken, cream of chicken soup, cream cheese and Italian dressing mix - serve over angel hair pasta or potatoes. So easy and super delicious!

This dish isn't pretty, but it tastes great.  Mama Hen has been after me for ages to make this recipe.  She loves it.  The only problem that I had with the recipe was that it used Golden Mushroom Soup.  I am not a big fan of mushrooms.  I can handle the specks that are in a can of Cream of Mushroom, but I still pick out any big chunks.  It's the "plain chicken" in me.  I saw this recipe on another site and they substituted Cream of Chicken for the Golden Mushroom Soup, so I decided to give it a try!  It turned out great.  It was very flavorful and a breeze to make.  Dump everything into the crockpot and boil some water for the pasta when you get home from work and voila!  Dinner in 10 minutes!

  1. I'm not a fan of mushrooms either, but this sounds great.

  2. I am a fan of mushrooms but don't care for the canned taste that the soup gives them. Mushrooms absorb everything.

    This looks and sounds great, I bet using the cream of chicken soup and maybe adding some sauteed fresh mushrooms for the mushrooms lovers would work too!

  3. Love this idea. I bet several of those canned soup flavors would work fine for this. Thanks for the recipe.

  6. I've made this a bunch of times and any canned cream of whatever soup works. I have also used the Garlic and Herb dried salad dressing mix instead of the Italian- also good! Once I used a couple of cans of chicken because I wanted it and it was 5pm...Also worked! It's not bad on rice, either.

  7. I've made this recipe, minus the Italian dressing, and wrapping the chicken in dried beef. This is a great "base" recipe that you can adapt many ways.

  8. We enjoyed this for dinner tonight. My husband, who is notoriously anti-"cream-of-xxx", proclaimed this the best "cream-of-xxx" meal I've made. I used white wine, and served it over rice, since we were out of pasta. It was done after about 5-6 hours on low in the slow cooker. Very delicious. Thanks!

  9. I LOVE this recipe-- found it a few years ago in a cookbook I had, and it's one of my go-to recipes now. I hate mushrooms too, so I substituted cream of mushroom soup and it is great. I definitely use the dry white wine instead of chicken broth because i like the flavor blend. and I usually serve it with rice instead of pasta (but that's just a personal preference). glad you liked it :)

  10. I did not have any "Cream Of" soup on hand so I made some slight adjustments. It turned out GREAT! I used a whole can of chicken broth, a whole pkg. of cream cheese and a tablespoon of white wine. All the rest of the directions the same. Right before serving, I removed the rather thin sauce, added about a tablespoon of flour and heated slowly in a pan over the stove to gain thickness. Then it was added back to the chicken when served with the pasta. This was a huge hit with my family!

  11. I love the recipe, but I am concerned about the amount of grease from the chicken mixing with the gravy. Have you may be thought about may be boiling the chicken before putting it in the crock pot?

    1. It wasn't greasy at all. Boneless, skinless chicken is very lean and not greasy.

  12. I am making this now and it's almost done but I'm noticing that there are little balls of cream cheese in the crockpot. Is that normal?
