Am I the only person out there that has 5 slow cookers?  I have 3 individual slow cookers and then I have 2 other sets.  One that has 3 different size crocks in one unit and then another set that has different size crocks that all connect into each other.  They are indispensable when having parties.


When I was working outside of the home, my crockpot or slow cooker was used numerous times a month.  I would assemble it all the night before and place the crock in the refrigerator.  In the morning I would take it out, insert it into the cooking vessel, turn it on low and walk out the door.  When I walked into the house after work I was greeted by aromas of pure deliciousness and could relax with a glass of wine before dinner instead of stressing about what dinner was going to be.


I adapted this recipe from one that I found written by Heather over at Girl Gone Mom.   I used fresh spinach instead of frozen.  I substituted a can of Cream of Mushroom soup for one of the cans of cream of chicken.  I used full fat sour cream and fresh mozzarella instead of shredded as that was what I had in the refrigerator. 


This is one of those leftover meals that I like to plan ahead when making my Weekly Menu.  I may have Roasted Chicken on the menu for one day and then this easy, peasy, delicious meal on the menu for later in the week, using the the leftovers.
