i have already posted a crock pot recipe just like this one...however this is much more delicious prepared this way ;) this is from lauren's food is love blog, and it is even better the next day as leftover's. yum, this is one of chad's favorites!! my sauce is a little more brown than usual in the picture, b/c i had burnt the bottom of the crock pot...oops, it was still fantastic anyway!!
makes 4 servings
~3 lbs chicken pieces (i usually just use 3-4 boneless skinless breasts)
~1 (2/3 ox) package italian salad dressing mix (i use good seasons)
~4 tablespoons melted butter; divided
~1 small onion chopped
~1 garlic clove chopped (i used 2 cloves)
~1 can cream of chicken soup
~8 oz cream cheese
~1/2 cup chicken broth
coat bottom of crock pot with a non-stick cooking spray. place chicken in crockpot & sprinkle italian seasonings packet over chicken pieces. sprinkle with 2 tablespoons melted butter over top. (i just place the chicken in frozen!)
cook on low for 4-6 hours.
melt the 2 remaining tablespoons of butter in saucepan and saute onion and garlic. add cream of chicken soup, cream cheese, and chicken broth; stir until melted & smooth. add the mixture to the crockpot and cook on low for an additional hour.
