Chicken: Died - Gone to Heaven

The beauty of this dish is the exotic taste from pantry ingredients. You may want to substitute boneless, skinless chicken for this. Slave used what was on sale. This requires caution because the chicken is so tender, it falls off the bone. You must be avoid biting down on a piece of cartilage.

Yes, several recipes lately have used cream cheese because slave got a bargain on a whole bunch. Now you can freeze these, but what the heck.

  • 4 chicken thighs (about 1½ pounds)
  • 1 tablespoon vegetable oil (optional)
  • 1 8 - ounce package fresh button mushrooms, quartered
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ teaspoon Herbes De Provence
  • 1 10 ¾ - ounce can condensed mushroom soup
  • ½ cup chicken broth (or dry white wine)
  • ½ pkg of low fat cream cheese, cut into 1 inch chunks
  • 1 cup red seedless grapes, cut in half
  • Hot cooked angel hair pasta
  • Snipped fresh chives or sliced green onions (optional)


  • First, wipe out your crock pot and spray it. Set it on low.

  • Chop the onions in large pieces, 
    then do the same with the mushrooms.

  • Put the onions in the pot.
  • In a large skillet on medium heat, brown the chicken (both sides) in 2 tbs of olive oil. About 4 minutes per side. This is just to set the outsides, not to cook. Place the chicken on the onions and top with mushrooms.

  • Melt butter in a medium saucepan; stir in mushroom soup, chicken broth, and cream cheese cut into chunks. Add the Herbes and stir until melted and well mixed; pour over chicken.

  • Cover; cook on low for 6 hours.

  • With 1 hour to go, add the grapes and stir them through.

Dieters Note! Take your favorite seedless grapes, any color, place on a tray and FREEZE them. It brings out the natural sugars and you can nibble on these cold wonders like candy! Also a perfect way to keep your wine cool while sipping on the patio! Don't forget your big floppy sun hat and Foster Grants!

  • Remove chicken to a platter. With a dipper, dish the sauce w/onions & mushrooms into a large bowl.
  • Put the cooked angel hair pasta in another bowl and serve.

  • Sprinkle with chives, if you like. Makes 4 servings.

This singer got his big break headlining at “Anne's 440”, in San Francisco, a very famous lesbian bar. In fact the original bar: “Mona's 440” was the 1st, opening in 1936.

It is truly wonderful serving my Master Indy

To satisfy and restore.
To nourish, support and maintain.
To gratify, spoil, comfort and please,
to nurture, assist, and sustain
..I cook!
