Weight Watchers Crock Pot Recipes are my go to meals when I’m pressed for time and have some leftover produce in my fridge that I want to use up before it gets bad. And this Creamy Mushroom and Chick Stew Crock Pot Recipe is perfect for that! I almost always have all those ingredients on hand. However, be aware that working with yogurt and a crock pot can be tricky, as the yogurt can curdle. To avoid that, make sure the yogurt is at room temp and only add it in before serving – don’t let it simmer in there all day. Enjoy!
