Slow Cooker Chicken, Potatoes and Mushrooms

Slow Cooker Chicken, Potato and Mushroom

You can still enjoy a rich dish with chicken, potatoes and mushrooms with a creamy sauce like this one. Just choose the ingredients well and go for the low fat ones only. Mushrooms for instance are fat-free, low in calories, cholesterol-free, gluten-free, and low in sodium yet they are high in nutrients like potassium, Vitamin D, selenium and a whole lot of other good things. Then you also have the protein from the chicken and the additional potassium from the potatoes. Not only will all the ingredients make a difference, but they will also make you feel better.
