How to Make Chicken with Mushrooms in a Slow Cooker

To make this dish, start by heating a tablespoon of olive oil in a skillet over medium heat. Add the chicken pieces and cook until browned on all sides. Transfer the chicken to the slow cooker.

In the same skillet, add another tablespoon of olive oil and sauté the diced onion and garlic until they are soft and fragrant. Add the mushrooms and cook until they are tender. Transfer the onion, garlic, and mushrooms to the slow cooker with the chicken.

Next, pour in the red wine and season with salt and pepper to taste. Give everything a good stir to combine the flavors.

Cover the slow cooker and cook on low for 6-8 hours or on high for 3-4 hours, until the chicken is cooked through and tender.

Once the chicken is done, you can serve it with some of the delicious sauce from the slow cooker. The chicken will be moist and flavorful, and the mushrooms will add a rich and earthy taste.

Chicken with Mushrooms Serving Suggestions

1. Over Rice or Pasta: Serve the tender chicken and flavorful mushrooms over a bed of fluffy rice or al dente pasta. The sauce from the slow cooker will beautifully coat the grains or noodles, creating a delicious and satisfying meal.

2. With Crusty Bread: Pair the chicken and mushrooms with some crusty bread to soak up the savory sauce. The combination of the tender chicken, earthy mushrooms, and the bread’s crunchiness will create a delightful texture and taste.

3. As a Sandwich Filling: Shred the cooked chicken and mushrooms and use them as a filling for sandwiches. Add some fresh greens, sliced tomatoes, and a spread of your choice for a hearty and flavorful sandwich.

4. With Mashed Potatoes: Serve the chicken and mushrooms alongside creamy mashed potatoes. The rich sauce from the slow cooker will complement the smooth and buttery potatoes, creating a comforting and satisfying meal.

5. In Tacos or Wraps: Transform the chicken and mushrooms into a delicious filling for tacos or wraps. Add some shredded lettuce, diced tomatoes, and a dollop of sour cream for a flavorful and portable meal.

How to Store Leftovers

Leftovers from your slow cooker chicken with red wine and mushrooms can be just as delicious the next day. Properly storing them will help maintain their flavor and quality. Here are some tips on how to store your leftovers:

1. Cool Down: Allow the chicken and mushrooms to cool down to room temperature before storing them. This helps prevent bacterial growth and keeps the food safe to eat.

2. Separate and Package: Divide the leftovers into individual portions or meal-sized containers. This makes it easier to reheat only what you need and prevents unnecessary waste.

3. Refrigerate or Freeze: If you plan to consume the leftovers within a few days, store them in airtight containers in the refrigerator. For longer storage, transfer them to freezer-safe containers or freezer bags and freeze them.

4. Label and Date: Always label your containers with the contents and date of storage. This helps you keep track of how long the leftovers have been stored and ensures you use them before they spoil.

5. Reheating: When reheating the leftovers, make sure to heat them thoroughly to an internal temperature of 165°F (74°C) to ensure they are safe to eat.

By following these storage tips, you can enjoy the flavors of your slow cooker chicken with red wine and mushrooms for another meal. Whether you choose to refrigerate or freeze the leftovers, proper storage will help maintain their taste and texture.
