  1. Are most French onion soup packet mixes the same? I’m in Australia and have Heinz or Campbells as options. Looks similar on the packet.

  2. Have you tried this using boneless skinless chicken thighs?
    I love that thighs are more tender, but would it cook faster than breasts?

    1. I haven’t made it with thighs, but I think it would be delicious. It would probably cook in half the time.

  3. When cooked in the slower cooker. Does it come our dry? I have found chicken can be dry in the slower cooker. Any tips on how to keep it for drying out ?

    1. This recipe has a can of soup, plus a cup of chicken broth and has never come out dry. If you feel it will be dry you can always add more chicken broth.

  4. You said in your recipe that you can use fresh mushrooms but drain them. Draining them is confusing to me. Please explain.
