Slow Cooker Rosemary Chicken, Sausage & Mushrooms. Just add mashed potato because you will need something to soak up the delicious gravy.
This is the ultimate comfort food, well, it is for this meat and potatoes girl. Chicken thighs, sausage, mushrooms, rosemary, wine and carrots all getting cozy and cooking up in the slow cooker and making a delicious meal. Look at that gravy below!
This dish is so good, I made it twice in 1 week. Then I discovered a crack in my crockpot. Did I work it too hard? Anyway, I guarantee if you make this dish, it will become one of your favorite crockpot comfort meals. Don’t forget the mash.

Lower the heat to medium and stir in the garlic, rosemary, salt and pepper.
Transfer the mushrooms and onions to a bowl.
To the same pan, add the sausages and cook on medium heat until browned on all sides, they don't have to be cooked through.
Remove and allow to cool until you can handle them to cut into 1 1/2 inch pieces. Add to the bowl of mushrooms and onions.
Toss the chicken thighs in the flour, shake off any excess and season with salt and pepper.
Add the 1 tablespoons of remaining oil to the pan over medium heat.
Add the chicken in batches and brown on each side.
Arrange the half chicken thighs in the bottom of the slow cooker and top with half of the mushroom, sausage mixture and half of the carrots. Repeat another layer of chicken, mushroom sausage mixture and carrots.
Pour in the chicken stock, wine and add the bay leaves and in an even layer. The liquid does not have to cover the meat and vegetables.
This recipe sounds wonderful! We just made it and the 1/3 cup of chicken stock was not nearly enough to cover the I gredie ya in the crock pot. Is that measurement accurate? We needed more like 3 cups. I also wanted to let you know how incredible this meal was. My family devoured it and loved it. My picky 5 and 3 year olds, my little 1 year old, and my husband all ate it for two nights. (I’m vegetarian so I didn’t join in, but it looked and smelled great.)Thank you so much.
Hi Alyson, yes this measurement is accurate. The liquid does not need to cover the ingredients as everything cooks by braising. You can see in the last picture of my crockpot that the ingredients are not completely submerged. I’m so glad they all liked it because there’s nothing better than the approval of picky eating kids ??
Love several aspects about this recipe. Would love to know how to make using boneless and bone-in chicken breast since I don’t care for dark meat. Have most of the ingredients on hand and would love to make in the next few days. Many thanks.
WOW! Thank you for your prompt reply. Would you recommend using boneless skinless breast, or do you think the bone-in breast would make for a better dish? Either way, I plan to make this today. Thank you again.
Lol! I can just picture you cracking that whip at your crock pot until it just gave up! Hoping you get a new one soon girlie! So this dish looks so perfect for the cold, gray, and wet weather that’s been hanging around. I can definitely see why you made it twice in one week!
Microwave cooking and nutrition
Are microwaves bad for your health? Almost every American house has a microwave. The convenience they offer is undeniable. However, despite the widespread use of microwave ovens and excellent safety recordings, some people suspect that cooking microwaved food makes it somewhat less healthy by removing foods from eating. Do you cook with microwave? Are microwave foods healthy?
How does microwave cooking work?
Understanding how microwave ovens work can help clarify the answers to these general questions. Microwave ovens cook food similar to radio waves but using shorter energy waves. These waves are highly selective, mainly affecting water and other electrically asymmetrical molecules - one end is positively charged and the other is negatively charged. Microwave ovens cause these molecules to vibrate and rapidly generate thermal (heat) energy.
Are microwaves safe to cook?
Some foods, when they are exposed to heat, from a microwave oven or a normal oven, are broken down. Vitamin C is perhaps the most clear example. However, since microwave cooking times are shorter, cooking with microwave does a better job of preserving vitamin C and other nutrients that are decomposed when heated.
When going to the vegetables, cooking in water takes some of the nutritional values ??because the nutrients flow into the cooking water. For example, boiled broccoli loses glycosinolate, a sulfur-containing compound that can give vegetables the ability to fight against cancer (and many find it distinctive and some find it disgusting). Steaming vegetables - even steaming microwave - is it better? In some ways, yes. For example, steamed broccoli holds more glucosinolate than boiled or fried broccoli.
Are microwaves bad for your health?
The method of cooking, which keeps the nutrients in the best way, is a method that quickly heats, warms food and uses as little liquid as possible. The microwave meets these criteria. Using the microwave with a small amount of water evaporates food from the inside out. It contains more vitamins and minerals than almost all other cooking methods and shows that microwave foods can be really healthy.
But let's not get lost in details. Vegetables are good for you in any way you prepare, and most of us don't eat enough. Is the microwave oven good or bad? Microwave is an engineering wonder, a miracle of convenience - and sometimes advantageous in feeding.
