Now that my son has gone back to school, our schedule has gotten crazy busy.  Once 4 pm hits, it’s go-time at our house. Between sports practices/games, Cub Scouts and music lessons, we are always on our way out the door.

But, a busy schedule doesn’t mean we can’t have a delicious home cooked dinner.  With a little planning and some easy recipes up my sleeve, we’re able to eat dinner together every night.  This Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala is one of those recipes — get ready to stick this baby up your sleeve!

One of my family’s favorite meals is Chicken Marsala.  They love the tender chicken topped with toasty mushrooms and that sweet marsala sauce.  It seems way too decadent for a Monday night.

Since they love it so much, I thought I would try making a slow cooker chicken marsala  This way, it could cook itself (who doesn’t love that?!?) while I took care of other things during the day.

I started off by seasoning both sides of four large boneless, skinless chicken breast halves and placing them in my slow cooker.  Boneless, skinless chicken thighs would also work great in this recipe.

Then, I topped the chicken with sliced mushrooms and added Marsala wine and sherry.  The slow cooker took care of the rest.

I set my slow cooker on low for about 5 hours.  When the time was up, I remove the liquid from the crock and thickened it with a roux that was flavored with oregano.

I served the Chicken Marsala with my go-to easy Parmesan Orzo and a green salad and dinner was done.  Seriously, it took me longer to load the dish washer than it did to make this dinner.

When my husband came home from work, he mentioned that the house smelled like Sunday dinner.  I’ll take that as a compliment, thank you very much.

I just love my Crock Pot® slow cooker.  It saves me so much time on busy weeknights and helps me get dinner on the table fast.  It’s like having your own personal assistant to help make dinner.  Slow Cooker Chicken Marsala - This is one of my favorite easy crock pot recipes

This model is programmable so you can set it for your cooking time and when it’s finished, it will automatically switch to the “keep warm” setting.

Plus, it has a locking lid so you can easily take it with you without it spilling. Ask my mom about the sausage and peppers that spilled in her car.  In case you were wondering, it’s VERY difficult to clean up spilled sausage and peppers from underneath car seats.  Just sayin’.

    The chicken and the sauce were delicious. However I wasn’t crazy about the mushrooms. They had an overwhelming taste of the wine, and they had shrunk to less than half of the original size. Next time I might sauté the mushrooms at the same time I’m making the gravy
