Recipe: Creamy Cheese Chicken

This is super yummy, and stays under the $5 per meal mark if you have bought everything on sale. It's also super filling.

3/4 cup Italian Dressing
1/2 stick butter
1 pound boneless skinless chicken breast
1 can cream of chicken soup
1 package cream cheese (softened)

Go ahead and turn your slow cooker on high while preparing everything (lid closed! lol). Place the butter in bottom of slow cooker, and let it melt. (If you are short on time, feel free to cheat and have the butter melted in the microwave. I don't use one, so no cheating here) When the butter has melted, add the Italian dressing and stir into butter, making sure it's well mixed.

Now, you can either cut the chicken breasts into 1" strips OR just place it in the slow cooker, and shred it in the end. I found it easier to serve shredded, than cut. It's your personal preference though. Place the chicken in the slow cooker and stir well to coat with the Italian and butter mix, or if you are using the whole breasts, turn over a couple of times so it's well coated. Next, cut the cream cheese into half and place on top of the chicken.

Then follow with the Cream of Chicken soup.

Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.

Serve over rice, or spaghetti/noodles. (But I found it best on noodles vs rice myself)

(DH was starving, hence the giant plateful LOL)
