Slow Cooker Paprika Chicken with Mushrooms

Lately, like many, our family has been involved in Spring Sports.  So, I have been pulling out the slow cooker a little more…

The slow cooker is definitely a “must have” appliance for your kitchen….especially if you are a working Mom like me. 

Most slow cooker recipes are easy and it is a great feeling to come home and dinner is done .  I like to take advantage of the slow cooker doing all the work.  So, I double the recipe… then freeze half for another meal.

Below is a recipe for a simple slow cooker chicken dish which highlight the spice Paprika.   It is flavorful and I usually serve it with rice or pasta and a vegetable.  For my family of 4, it is enough for two dinners.

Enjoy!
