This is an easy recipe to make in the crockpot and just good comfort food.  My family enjoys this recipe with Southern Cornmeal Hoecakes.

3 or 4 chicken breasts (I use the frozen ones. Could use other chicken parts, too.)
3 or 4 medium potatoes, peeled and cut into chunks
1 medium onion, peeled and sliced in rings
1 package onion soup mix
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of mushroom soup
1 cup milk
1 (4 ounce) can mushrooms, undrained
1/2 teaspoon black pepper
1/2 teaspoon parsley flakes
1/2 teaspoon basil
1 bay leaf
1 teaspoon salt
1 (1 pound) bag frozen broccoli cuts
Add chicken to crockpot, whisk remaining ingredients together in a bowl except broccoli, pour over chicken pieces.  Cook on high for 4 hours or low 7 to 8 hours.  About 30 minutes before serving add the broccoli to the crockpot and cook until tender.   Serves 4 to 6 depending on number of chicken pieces.  Enjoy!

    I am disabled And simply cannot stand in the kitchen to cook. I live alone with dogs so it is always a challenge to cook in right proportions for just 1 person.. I often consult the lil Google microphone to search out recipes for crock pot chicken. I have been extremely happy with the recipes I found here. I cook enough for 2 meals and am able to create enough variety that I don’t get tired of chicken. Thank you for your wonderful recipes.. you have added lovely flavors And layers to my life…

    I’m making this tonight! Thanks for the recipe! Sounds delicious. (:

  4. Do you defrost the chicken?

  5. If you want to use fresh broc. Just cook in micro.for a few min first .

  6. I broke the #1 rule of cooking. I didn’t read the recipe all the way though. I just put the broccoli in with everything else. – am I doomed?

  7. I want to use fresh broccoli so when would I add it
