When I started this website, I was a very beginner cook. I was enthusiastic but the idea of “from-scratch cooking” was, in all honesty, terrifying. Then, I was very likely to use prepackaged items as ingredients in my recipes.

As I cooked and experimented more, the fear went away and if you go through my website you can see the transition. I moved away from cans of condensed soups as ingredients to just broths, spices and the cans’ other components.

I like easy recipes that you can throw in your crockpot and those recipes come in many shapes. They can be from-scratch and also with some cans of this and that – why not share a little of both?

Crockpot Creamy Chicken Mushrooms and Peas

This recipe for crockpot creamy chicken mushrooms and peas is one that I stopped making for that reason. It uses a can of cream of chicken soup and a packet of Italian salad dressing mix. While I am unlikely to create a recipe like this again, it isn’t without its merits and is quite delicious and flavorful.

Plus, I can totally appreciate using those two items. Whether it’s time, price, or availability, there really isn’t anything wrong with getting a helping hand in the kitchen now and again.

If you want to stay “from-scratch” I have a solution for you:

  • This recipe for homemade cream of chicken soup from Pinch of Yum is a great substitute for the can.
  • This recipe for homemade Italian salad dressing mix from Simple Thrifty is a great substitute for the packet.

Just looking at this is comforting! It totally reminds me of something my mom made (and I devoured) back in the 70s. Love it! Thanks for linking up at #SaucySaturdays!

This definitely looks tasty, it reminds me of something my mom used to make when I was little. I'm with you on the canned/packaged ingredients. While I can appreciate their merit, I'm not a huge fan of using them in my own home.

Thanks for sharing on craft schooling sunday, though I'm sorry I have had to delete this link as I request food links to recipes that do not combine milk and meat, or include pork or shellfish, in keeping with Jewish law. Don't feel bad, I had to delete another eight or so links this party, just please remember for next time, all the best!
