Parsley Chicken

Who doesn't like parsley or chicken?!  Plus, it's an entire meal in a pot!  You don't have to make any side dishes with this one!  The Parsley Chicken was very good (a little satly, but I'll fix that below) and all I had to do to get it on the table was "slap" it on a plate!  How easy is that?!

Feel free to use whatever cut of chicken works best for your family.  The grocery store by me didn't have any family packs of thighs this week, so I bought breast halves.  They are a little pricier.

I'll post again on Thursday when I've made my first time ever, Slow Cooker bean and ham soup!  Stay tuned!

Parsley Chicken

4 bone-in chicken breast halves (or 6 thighs)
12 small red potatoes, halved (mine were slightly bigger so I used less)
1 onion
12 mushrooms whole or chopped 
1 (8 oz.) package cream cheese
1 whole bunch fresh parsley, coarsely chopped
1 lemon, juiced
1/4 cup soy sauce
1 tsp. salt
1 tsp. pepper

Place halved potatoes in bottom of Slow Cooker with mushrooms.  Place chicken on top.

In a separate bowl, combine softened cream cheese, onion, parsley, lemon juice, soy sauce, salt and pepper.  Stir and pour over chicken.

Cover and cook on low 8-10 hours.
