Italian Crock Pot Chicken

Once again, I was looking for easy prep meals that I could get started and leave to let cook. I found this one on a facebook page of the Crock Pot Girls, check them out!!

I will tweak it a little the next time I make it, but it was good this way too. Here's what you need:
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (whole or cut into bite size pieces)
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 stick of butter (use butter, they say it is better than margarine)
1 env. dry Italian dressing mix
1 8oz pkg cream cheese
any kind of pasta

As you can see, I cut my chicken up into pieces. Saved having to do it after it cooked.

Melt the butter, place the chicken in the crock pot and pour melted butter over. Sprinkle the chicken with dry Italian dressing. Cover and cook on high for 3-4 hours. I did mine for 3.5 hours

Looking pretty good so far huh??? I almost just wanted to eat it this way:) BUT........Now, blend the soup and the cream cheese (make sure you add the water to the soup) and pour over the chicken for the last 1/2 hour.

I took the chicken out, mixed up the soup and cream cheese, then put the chicken back in to finish cooking.

Serve over any kind of pasta. I used bow tie pasta:)

Here's where the tweaking comes in. Hubby said it didn't really "taste" very Italian. So, next time, I'm going to add some peppers, mushrooms, and maybe tomatoes to give it a more Italian flavor. However, I added peas and corn to this plate and mixed it all up. YUMMY!!! However, when I add all the other stuff, the kiddos probably won't eat it. They did at least eat it plain like this.
