Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken

Submitted by: SASWOPE

Introduction

Recipe Adapted from a recipe found on here.

I use Cream of Mushroom soup instead of Cream of chicken. It makes the sauce more gravy-like. Also, I don't like the rice calculated into the calorie count. Sometimes I might use noodles, rice, or neither. Sometimes I just eat this with vegetables. Also, I essentially use half the cream cheese in the recipe. It cuts down on the fat and I think it's a strong enough flavor that even with half as much I can enjoy it.

You can half this recipe.

**You may add skim or low fat milk in very small quantities to thin the sauce a little. It does not significantly affect the nutritional value if you use up to 2 tablespoons**

Makes 12 servings and reheats well.

This recipe can be made with FAT FREE cream cheese and it saves about 3 grams of fat. However, I feel that the dish benefits from the flavor of the low fat over the fat free.
