Big Weather shares a crockpot recipe he received from a viewer way back when he worked in Pittsburgh. It includes chicken and mushrooms and it's good!

It's been a while since I've made a crockpot recipe so here's one from when I lived in Pittsburgh. A viewer sent it to me and I like chicken, and I like mushrooms, so it seemed like a a good fit. Plus, it's super easy.

Also, if you have a great recipe that you want Big Weather to try, send him an email and he may feature it on his Big Recipe segment. Email Don.


4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breast, cut up

12 oz. jar of mushroom gravy

1/2 cup of milk

8 oz. pkg. of reduced fat cream cheese

1 pkg. dry Italian salad dressing

1 container of chopped, fresh mushrooms from the produce section

1/2 t garlic powder

1/2 t ground black pepper

1 T of Italian Seasoning

1/2 box of spaghetti noodles


1. Combine all ingredients (except spaghetti) in crock pot. Cover.

2. Cook on low for 6-8 hours

3. Cook spaghetti and serve sauce and chicken over noodles.

Adding the extra ingredients really made it yummy. Also, in the recipe above I cut the milk in half because the final product was a little runny for my taste. I served it with a can of Italian green beans heated on the stove top. If you've got a goto recipe, I'd love to see it (crockpot or not). Please send it to me here. Good luck and good eating!
