I had to make this chicken for dinner last night.
I had to.
I was craving pasta and something non-low caloric.
This recipe covers both.
It's ultimate comfort food.
It's so good, you can rationalize by using low fat cream cheese.
Hope you enjoy it as much as we did!
2 chicken breasts
1 T. butter
1 packet dry Italian salad dressing mix
Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Place chicken in the crockpot and cut dabs of butter over the chicken. Sprinkle the salad dressing mix.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours or until chicken is cooked. (If chicken is browning too quickly, pour a little water into the bottom.)
When chicken is cooked, remove from crockpot and shred. Put aside.
Make the sauce by mixing together and bring to a boil:
1 brick cream cheese
1/2 cup liquid from the crockpot or 1/2 cup milk (I prefer the drippings)
1 recipe GF soup mix (or for you non-GF eaters, 1 can cream of chicken soup)
When thick and boiling, add in frozen green peas to your liking and the chicken. Heat throughly and serve over your favorite type of GF noodles.
