With it being so cold out, I’ve been in the mood for comfort food. And nothing says comfort food like a meal in the crockpot that’s creamy and filling! I perused Pinterest and found a yummy recipe: Slow Cooker Italian Chicken!
Here’s what you need:
~4 chicken breasts (not pictured)
~1 Italian dressing seasoning packet (I really wanted to get Hidden Valley’s packet, but I couldn’t find it!)
~1/2 cup water
~1 (8 oz) block of cream cheese
~1 can cream of chicken soup
~2/3 cup water
~Rice (or noodles; it doesn’t really matter)
First, place your chicken in the crockpot and season with the Italian dressing packet. Add 1/2 cup water and let it cook, covered, for 4 hours on low. (The reason those chicken breasts look so piddly is because the Chicken Breast bags and the Chicken Tenderloin bags look almost identical. And, guess which bag this pregnant-brained momma grabbed? Yep.)
When the chicken is cooked, shred it with a fork or do it the fun and easy way and use a hand mixer!
Add in the cream cheese, chicken soup, and 2/3 cup water. Mix well and let it cook for another 30 minutes.
Then, serve with your favorite veggie and rice!
Huff the Hubs and I both really liked this! My only complaint was that I didn’t add enough chicken (surprise, surprise). I’m DEFINITELY making this again because it was SUPER easy! Plus, you can save time by cooking and shredding the chicken a few days before!
