A slow cooker can be a major kitchen MVP — but like any other gadget, it's only as good as how much you love the recipes it makes. We're in full support of low-maintence meals, but they also need to be delicious. So we asked Pinterest for their most popular slow cooker recipe and were not disappointed when they returned with this creamy, comforting beauty from Alyssa Rivers, the food blogger behind The Recipe Critic.

As a wife and mom, Alyssa’s always looking for practical, family-friendly meals — that’s why she came up with Slow Cooker Chicken and Mushroom Stroganoff. According to Alyssa, her dish is a surefire hit because it’s "simple and flavorful with not a lot of ingredients." What more could you ask for?

In the morning, Alyssa combines cream cheese, cream of chicken soup and onion soup mix to make a thick, rich sauce, which she pours on top of chicken breast and mushrooms. After a few hours in the slow cooker, dinner’s ready! She recommends serving the dish on top of egg noodles, and likes to sprinkle fresh parsley for color and freshness.

Alyssa says her family loves her dish because of "the smell as it is cooking and all the flavor when eating it." With nearly 300K saves on just one post alone, it’s clear they’re not the only ones who just can't get enough.
