Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff in the Slow Cooker

This chicken and mushroom stroganoff is the perfect weeknight meal. It’s so easy to throw together and always satisfies! As soon as I got the kids to school I looked in my cupboard for ingredients and was able to throw this stroganoff into the slow cooker. It took under 5 minutes! All of my fellow busy moms rejoice.

It has minimal ingredients and the chicken cooks to tender and juicy perfection in the creamy mushroom sauce. I did use a can of cream of chicken soup but if you have some extra time you can make my homemade cream of chicken soup. The sauce is so easy, creamy, and perfect with some noodles tossed inside. Trust me when I say your family is going to go crazy over it! It’s picky eater-approved! Looking for more easy dinner recipes? Find more slow cooker dinners here.

I loved the flavor in the creamy sauce and the mushrooms hidden throughout were awesome. This was the perfect easy meal for the whole family. With how simple slow cooker chicken and mushroom stroganoff is, you will want to make it again and again! Check out the recipe card below for measurements.

  • Chicken Breasts: I used boneless and skinless chicken breasts, cut into cubes.
  • Sliced Mushrooms: I used regular brown mushrooms, but cremini and baby bella mushrooms also work!
  • Cream Cheese: You will want this to be softened so your sauce turns out lump-free.
  • Cream of Chicken Soup: Use canned soup for easy prep or make your own from scratch! Find my full recipe here. For more mushroom flavor, you can also use cream of mushroom soup.
  • Dry Onion Soup Mix: You only need one packet to give this stroganoff all the flavor it needs.
  • Salt and Pepper: Season to taste.
  • Fresh Parsley: Chopped and added on top for garnish! I love adding fresh herbs to my dishes because they not only look great, but add extra flavor and aromatics as well.

  1. Can you cook your egg noodles in the Crock-Pot with this recipe? I’ve made a few where you add your noodles right to the Crock-Pot at the end and they cook in there within 15-25 minutes. Wondering if that would work with this.

  2. This was wonderful! I adapted it to use the pressure cooker by adding some chicken broth. Otherwise I threw everything in and set it on 20 minutes, mixed in some sour cream and it was perfect.

  3. Very easy to make but wasn’t a fan, chicken soup over powering. Didnt taste like a stroganoff. Sour cream would be better over cream cheese.

  4. Great recipe! Great rich flavorful chicken idea. And I looove egg noodles. I would homemake the soup next time. It was not as “clean” tasting as I would prefer. (But fine if ur used to canned soup) I know my crockpot well, so I know 4 hours on low is plenty of time for me. I added a small amount of chicken broth in the beginning and it was melt in your mouth, pull apart with a fork.

  5. Loved it!! Followed the exact recipe but ended up adding a little bit of milk to make the sauce a little thinner and more spreadable over the pasta. The taste was amazing though and I would definitely recommended .

    1. That sounds fantastic. Thank you for sharing! I am so glad that you loved it so much! Thank you for letting me know and following along with me!

  6. Loved this dish. I used about half cream cheese and half sour cream as that’s what I had handy. Thickened with cornflour and threw some green vegies in at the end. Soooooo tasty

  7. I’m excited to try the new recipes and I’ll let you know how they turned out for me.

  8. I can’t wait to try this, I only have thigh fillets, and creamy chicken and mushroom soup, hope it’s delicious, will let you know. Thanks for the recipe.

  9. My three year old daughter absolutely gobbled this up! It’s nice to be able to have a hearty home cooked meal ready for us on busy days! I love chicken over ground beef and so does my daughter. Delicious and soo tasty.

  10. Good recipe. I put the chicken breast in without cutting them. It was on low for 6 hours . The chicken wasn’t dry and fell apart with shredding. The liquid was pretty nonexistent so next time may add some chicken broth. I served it over riced cauliflower.

  11. This was very good! I did end up adding some cornstarch to thicken the sauce and some sour cream in the end to give it more of a stroganoff taste. And I also waited until the chicken was cooked in the slow cooker to then pull it out and cube it. I hate have to cut up uncooked chicken when I don’t have to. I also used that time to doctor the sauce. It was not anywhere near salty as I worried it may be because of other reviews. I’m sure my husband will be requesting this again soon! Thanks for the recipe!

      1. I tried this recipe with whole pieces of chicken in the slow cooker. Perhaps I left it too long. While the sauce was delicious the chicken was very dry. Would searing the chicken in a fry pan first help?

      2. Slow cookers today cook at a higher temperature. I find I have to check much sooner to see if done.

  12. I followed the recipe for the most part. Added chicken broth, doubled mushrooms and added a sliced onion towards the end. Excellent!!

  13. Hi, stupid question but am I supposed to use raw or cooked chicken for this recipe? I assume raw but I have cubed cooked chicken in the freezer and was just wondering if I could still use this recipe for it.

  14. I made in a skillet on the stove, I had some cooked chicken breasts in fridge, chopped up, with mushrooms in the skillet and just topped with all the rest of ingredients and stirred up over medium heat, added a cup of water and put the lid on to simmer until the noodles get done, then will serve over the noodles, tastes really good, will cook again.

  15. Ohhh shoot I wish I read the comments because I also thought it was 18oz of cream cheese I hope it still comes out okay.
