Chef's Notes

This recipe is a healthier version of Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff.


  1. Way too salty...can't taste the salmon!
  2. Delicious! My husband loved it and he only likes hot dogs, salisbury steak, and ice cream. The comments on it not being "healthy" shows that "healthy" is in the eye of the beholder. For me, 32.7 g protein and 6.5 g. carbs is really healthy. I substituted broccoli for the peas, so it was less - Read more ...
  3. Easy. To cut down on salt. Don't add the tsp. Of salt and make your own hicken broth. Eating healthier sometimes takes a bit of work. You can also buy no salt broth.
  4. I haven't tried the recipe and did want to comment on the critical note about it being a healthy recipe. I believe it said healthier not healthy. Is that not a good starting place for those unhealthy people!
  5. I haven't tried this yet although I probably will. I think I would leave out the tsp of salt and let everybody season as they wish. I kept going back re-reading the 1 Tbsp of onion and carrot. Why in the world would you use that small of an amount for 4 chicken breasts?
  6. GREAT IDEA...I made some changes to make it even healthier
  7. This was very tasty and easy to make. The only change I made was that I noticed that it was looking dry during the last 1/2 hour of cooking on high so I added 1/2 cup of chicken broth and it came out very nice. I do agree that it cooks in about 4 hours - Read more ...
  8. Added celery and way more carrots to make it one dish meal. Used 8 oz reduced fat cream cheese. Served over quinoa. Yum! Looks like it will freeze well for single servings for work!
  9. First Main Dish recipe I have tried from Allrecipes as I havnt done a lot of cooking from scratch. Easy to follow for a beginner like me, and family loved it.
  10. Tasted good. I added a bit more of the chopped veggies, left out the butter - added butter buds to get buttery flavor, used fat free cream cheese and broccoli instead of peas. Chicken was done WAY before 5-6 hours.. more like 3.5 - 4
