: Main meal | Slow Cooker
Cuisine: Italian
Serves: 5
  • 4 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • 1 envelope dry Italian salad dressing mix
  • ¼ cup water
  • 8 oz. pkg. cream cheese, softened
  • *10-3/4 oz. can cream of chicken soup
  • *(When we double recipe, the 2nd can of soup we use is cream of celery)
  • 4 oz. can of mushroom stems and pieces, drained
  • ½-3/4 1lb.bag of wide egg noodles
  1. Place chicken breast halves in slow cooker
  2. Combine dry salad dressing mix and water. Pour over chicken.
  3. Cover. Cook on low for 3 hours.
  4. - As soon as the chicken is cooked through, if we're home, I break up the chicken breasts into chunks, and return to the pot, so it can absorb the seasoned liquids. (I've just broken it up while in the pot, with a wooden spatula too. The chicken is so tender, it's no problem. Just be sure you're not damaging the bottom of your pot.)
  5. Combine cream cheese and soup until blended. Stir in the mushrooms. Pour over chicken, and mix it up.
  6. **Cover, and cook 1 more hour.
  7. **Note: If the chicken was cut into chunks much earlier, and so you are sure it is cooked through, it is ready as soon as all of the cheese & soup is heated, smooth and blended together.
  8. While the slow cooker contents is in it's remaining time, cook egg noodles according to the package directions, and strain.
  9. Serve the Chicken Italiano over the hot egg noodles, and ENJOY!
