Slow Cooker Angel Chicken


Did everyone have a great weekend?  I had a really nice one.  Friday I got a job of baby-sitting for my 16-month-old adopted “niece”, Elliana, all day and night while my friends/her parents went to Niagara Falls for a special dinner with their relatives.  I absolutely adore (translation= borderline obsessed with) her so, needless to say, I was in my glory having her all to myself all day!  Saturday we did yard work all day then went to dinner with those same friends at a new-to-us Italian place we’d never been to called Red Fidele’s.  The food was really good and it was especially nice to have Italian food after so long seeing as all we ate in California was Mexican food….NOT that I’m complaining because it was the best Mexican food I’ve ever had!  Sunday we went to church and Mr. Wishes and I came home and made lunch together (a recipe I’ll be sharing with you soon for breakfast burritos) and went running together.  We ran a 4.5 mile trail which doesn’t seem too bad but it was pretty much ALL brutally steep hills.  I’m going to be in for a hurtin’ tomorrow, that’s for sure!  We then took a walk along the canal and got frozen custard at Pittsford Farms Dairy (I ordered Key Lime and Vanilla twist….soooo good!).  It was a great weekend!

I got this recipe a few years ago when it was spreading like a wildfire all over the web and I finally made it.  I wish I had gotten around to it sooner because it turned out really good and was super easy.  You just throw everything in the slow cooker and it does it’s thing!  We both loved this meal and I will definitely be making this on a regular basis.  If you can’t find golden mushroom soup (I had a hard time finding it but after some hunting I found it at Tops and Walmart) you can always substitute cream of chicken soup.  Also, you can swap out the white wine and replace it with chicken broth.  The recipe is very adapable!

Slow Cooker / Crock Pot Angel Chicken


3-4 chicken breasts
3 Tbs. butter
Italian dressing mix – 1 packet
1 can golden mushroom soup (cream of chicken works, too)
4 oz. cream cheese
3/4 cup white wine
angel hair pasta, cooked


Put the chicken in the crock pot.  Melt the butter and soften the cream cheese in the microwave.  Stir those together with the Italian dressing mix, the soup and wine then pour over chicken.  Cook on low for 5-6 hours.

You can break the chicken up a bit with a fork or spoon after it has cooked or leave whole.  Serve the chicken with the sauce over the cooked pasta.

    You had a splendid weekend. I hope you are not hurting too much today after your run and gardening. The next day you always pay. I love how creamy and delicious this chicken looks. I do not have a slow cooker but really need to invest one. Take Care, BAM

      I’m hurting a lot! haha but that’s OK! At least I did something good for myself. You definitely should get a slow cooker!

    I’ve had this same recipe pinned and tucked away forever! You may have just given me the push to try it, because yours looks divine! And I can never, ever get enough good slow cooker recipes!

    • June 3, 2013 at 3:09 PM #

      You should definitely try it out! I wish I had sooner!

      Thanks, Kayle! Babysitting definitely was fun! How well-behaved and cute the kids are makes all the difference 🙂

    I love anything I can make in the crock pot and these flavors look incredible!

    • June 3, 2013 at 3:07 PM #

      Thanks, Laurie! I love crock pot dinners, too….so easy!

      I keep saying the same thing- that I need to use mine more often. It makes for such easy meals!

    Ohhh… I love soup based dishes. I try to stray away from them to work on learning to cook from scratch, but sometimes they’re just the best idea–quick, cheap, and everyone loves them!

    • June 3, 2013 at 3:07 PM #

      I stay away from them for the most part too! Once in a while I use them for a nice, quick dinner 🙂

    Yum, this pasta looks out of this world! Even though the temps are scorching here (waaaah) I am dying for some comfort food while I snuggle under a blanket in my heavily air conditioned home.

    • June 3, 2013 at 3:06 PM #

      We had scorching temps last week but now it’s cold again!! Well, 60’s are considered cold for June!

    I keep reading this title as “ANGER chicken” which would be the opposite of angel chicken. Always love a slow cooker meal! Sounds delicious!

    • June 3, 2013 at 3:06 PM #

      haha “anger chicken”. love it!!

  9. June 3, 2013 at 1:35 PM #

    That sauce looks great!

  10. June 3, 2013 at 2:24 PM #

    Ohhhh yum! This looks delicious!!

    Ashley, this recipe looks delicious! And it sounds like you had a great weekend with that cute little girl!! I’m sure her parents would be more than happy to have you babysit again!!! Haha wink wink!

    • June 3, 2013 at 11:20 PM #

      She definitely is a cute little girl! You should meet her sometime! 😉

  13. June 3, 2013 at 10:04 PM #

    Wow! This looks yummy! This meal sounds perfect after your brutal hill run! Running hills is my least favorite thing to do. Give me a nice flat trail any day!

    • June 3, 2013 at 11:11 PM #

      I’m totally with you on that! I could run all day on flat ground…hills not so much!

    I love recipes using slow cooker. Will have to try this one out. Sound like a splendid weekend. 🙂 Hope you’re not in too much pain. Have a lovely week Ashley! 🙂

    • June 4, 2013 at 1:13 PM #

      I’m in pain, but I’m managing! 🙂 Thanks, Anne!

    What a great weekend, Ashley. This recipe sounds super easy and delicious, I love it! I’ve never heard of that mushroom soup before.

    • June 4, 2013 at 5:37 PM #

      Not many stores sell it – it’s similar to cream of chicken except has more of a mushroom taste and bits of mushrooms in it 🙂

    My family loves this ….I make one crock pot with real chicken and another with Quorn vegetarian chicken for myself…..soooo good !!!

    • June 5, 2013 at 1:04 PM #

      It’s so good!! I’m glad you think so too 🙂

  17. June 5, 2013 at 2:58 PM #

    I love this idea. Our boys (and their dads) will soon be enjoying this one! Thanks for the great post.

    • June 5, 2013 at 3:10 PM #

      Thanks, Dan! I hope you like it!

  18. June 5, 2013 at 6:09 PM #

    Sounds like you had a swell weekend! And what a fun dish – what could be easier? Worth the search for the soup!

  19. June 6, 2013 at 8:09 PM #

    I love mushroom soup, it can do so many things – including this delicious recipe! Thanks for sharing!

    • June 6, 2013 at 8:40 PM #

      It is good in a lot of different recipes!

    I was wondering if you could sub the wine with something else or leave it out? Would it change the taste very much? Looks great though!!

    • June 18, 2013 at 11:57 AM #

      Hey Ashley, you can substitute chicken broth or non-alcoholic wine!! It shouldn’t change the taste much 🙂

    This looks really good. I bet it would be good using rice instead of pasta for a change up. I love all the crock pot recipes, we use them at the campground. We fill the crock pot and then go play all day and dinner is ready when we get back.

    • June 18, 2013 at 12:47 PM #

      Rice is a great idea!! Thanks for coming by and commenting, Anne!

    I don’t have a slow cooker but it looks great can I do this in any other way? thank you

    • July 29, 2013 at 6:48 PM #

      Hey Ron! You can always cut the chicken up into strips or bite size pieces and cook it in the sauce in a skillet or frying pan! You can cook up the chicken in some olive oil or whatever…then remove it…then make the sauce in the same pan….then add the chicken to the sauce one that’s heated up and heat up the chicken in the sauce 🙂 Hope that made sense!

    O.K. this was nice and filling…could do without the wine. It sort of reminds me of what my mommy used to make when i was a kid; she called it winter foods, but without the wine and pasta. She would pour it over homemade waffles, yummy! I think I’ll give that a try next venture. Thanks 4 the easy recipe. Peace.

      I’m glad you liked it! Thanks so much for taking the time to leave me a comment, Tamu 🙂

    I have made and loved this for a long time. I add up to a pound of fresh sliced or quartered mushrooms usually and always use chive and onion soft cream cheese from the tub. Garnish with chopped green onions or chives. So pretty and delicious! One of my favorite company meals because it’s easy and we can all still visit.

    This looks delicious! Glad to find it on the weekly roundup. One question, is there a certain type of white wine I should use or avoid?

    • February 16, 2017 at 5:49 PM #

      Any white wine that you think tastes good enough to drink! That’s the rule I go by 🙂
