 Hi, my name is Kristin from Dizzy Busy and Hungry! I am so excited to be visiting you today here at Anyonita Nibbles. Thanks, Anyonita, for having me! I love, love, LOVE my slow cooker! The best slow cooker recipes are the ones where you just throw everything in, set it, and forget it. This Crockpot Mushroom Artichoke Chicken is one of those.

It is super-easy, and super-tasty! In the summer months, I take advantage of the fact that the slow cooker will not heat up my kitchen like the oven does. Keeping cool is definitely a priority during July and August, when it gets really hot and humid around my parts! Crock pot recipes are great for feeding a crowd, too, because they free up your time and your oven for the other dishes you need to prepare. I have used some of my crock pot recipes for holiday parties, football parties, and general family gatherings. It is such a relief to be able to check the main dish off the list early in the day, and then just let it take care of itself until dinner time!

 The entire family loved this recipe. There is plenty of flavor in this dish, and with the mushrooms, artichokes, and spinach, plenty of nutrition as well! The trick to making this dish really creamy and yummy is to use a little bit of instant tapioca in the liquid. You don’t even notice it once the dish is cooked, but it gives the sauce some body and creaminess without affecting the taste. I love this trick and have started using it in more of my recipes!
