I got this recipe from a nurse at work. We're always sharing easy and family-pleasing recipes. The sauce tastes like a creamy Alfredo sauce. This is great with noodles.
- 3 lbs chicken pieces
- 1 (2/3 ounce) package Italian salad dressing mix
- 4 tablespoons melted butter (divided)
- 1 small onion, chopped
- 1 garlic clove, chopped
- 1 (10 1/2 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
- 8 ounces cream cheese
- 1⁄2 cup chicken broth
- Place chicken pieces in crock pot and sprinkle Italian seasoning over chicken. Sprinkle with 2 tablespoons melted butter.
- Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
- Melt 2 tablespoons butter in a sauce pan and saute onion and garlic. Add Cream of Chicken Soup, cream cheese, and chicken broth. Stir until smooth.
- Add this mixture to crock pot and cook on low for an additional hour.
This is a really great tasting, easy main dish meal! I made it exactly as written,,,except the time cooked. It actually only takes about 1/2 the 7hrs to cook and I think had I not been here and watched it,,it wouldn't have turned out as well. I think it would have burned around the edges. I intended and started early enough to use your time stated, but after 2 1/2 hrs, turned my crock on the "warm" setting (newer crocks have this setting,,yay) until I added the broth/cream cheese mix. I let this cook on low for 45 min and served over mashed garlic/tarragon potatoes. dh won' t eat rice :( The 2nd best part was the next nite, I shredded the left over chicken,,(I'd taken it out of the sauce)added 1/2cup sour cream, a 4 oz. can of green chilis and 4oz. velveeta cheese to the sauce and some garlic powder. I placed the shredded chicken and more shredded cheese in corn tortillas and pour the remaining sauce over them and had a pan of chicken enchiladas fit for a king!! I also reserved 3/4 cup of the sauce and poured it over 2 chili rellenos (sp)I'd made! Seems as tho I may have had a lot of left overs, but there're only 2 of us and we don't eat heavily,,so, this wonderful crockpot chicken made 2 fab different dinners....just enough shredded chicken leftover for soft tacos tonite....3 meals!!! (sorry this is long, just wanting to be informative on a great recipe)...thanks for posting,,,,Kitty :)
Wonderful recipe. Great sauce. I cut the total cooking time down to 5 hours to avoid having rubby chicken. UPDATE: Love this recipe. This is my second review. This time I added mushrooms in the cream cheese step. Also, topped with chives and crumbled bacon when serving. Delicious. This is a keeper.
Oh yummmm! This was super! I didn't have all day so I cooked it on high about 3 1/2 hours and then added the cream cheese mixture and cooked it the next hour on low. I re-read the reviews right after I poured the cream cheese mixture and saw that someone mentioned mushrooms. So I ran and grabbed my package of whole fresh mushrooms out of the fridge and just threw them on top of everything. Man were they good. Served over egg noodles. It is very important that you have something like rice,noodles, or mashed potatoes to pour the gravy over. Or you'll look silly lapping it up like a dog off your plate. It's that good.
