Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken



Introduction

Just to clarify for the questions below:
First, YES the cream cheese is figured into the totals...if you use FULL FAT cream cheese, the fat content will be considerably higher. But low fat cream cheese really takes the fat down.

Second, I haven't ever tried it with regular Italian dressing...let me know how it turns out!

Third, I HIGHLY recommend using the low setting for cooking...it allows the juices from the chicken to really seep into the dressing.

Ingredients

    *1.5 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts
    *1 pkg Good Seasons Italian dressing mix
    * 1/4 cup water
    * 1 8oz pkg low fat cream cheese
    *1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
    *3 cups cooked white, long grain rice

Directions

*1. Place chicken in crock pot
*2. Mix together Italian dressing mix and water. Pour over chicken.
*3. Cover and cook on high for 4 hours OR low for 8 hours.
*4. Mix together cream cheese and soup in separate bowl.
*5. Carefully remove chicken from crock pot to plate.
*6. Pour cream cheese/soup mixture into crock pot and mix together with dressing in bottom.
*7. Return chicken to crock pot and mix gently.
*8. Cook on LOW until heated through.
*Serve with rice

Makes 6 servings. Approximately 2/3 cup mixture with 1/2 cup rice.

This recipe can be made with FAT FREE cream cheese and it saves about 6 grams of fat. However, I feel that the dish benefits from the flavor of the low fat over the fat free.

  • This reminded me of a pot pie, only without the veggies. It was okay, but pretty bland for our taste. Freshly ground pepper helped, but not enough. The dressing was lost in the cheese and soup, and the soup was lost in the cheese and dressing. - 10/22/08

  • This was a great recipe, and very filling! I will definitely do this again. My only complaint is that 8 hrs on low made my chicken a little toward the dry side, I will shorten the cook time next time I make it! I love how its easy to start in the AM and when I got home from work it was done! Awesome - 10/22/08
