Recipe of the Week - Creamy Chicken Italian

Posting an old favorite this week...given 5 stars by several of my friends who've either had it at my house or made it for their families :0) You can make it as light and healthy as you need with reduced fat or fat-free cream cheese, and some people add either mushrooms or other fresh veggies.

Creamy Chicken Italian

8 boneless skinless chicken breast halves
1 package dry Italian dressing
1/4 cup water
8 oz package cream cheese, softened
1 can cream of chicken soup

Place chicken in greased slow cooker
combine salad dressing and water. Pour over chicken
Cover. Cook on low for 4-5 hours
In saucepan, combine cream cheese and soup. Heat slightly to melt cream cheese. Pour over chicken.
Cover. Cook 1 additional hour on low
Serve over noodles or rice

Popped over from SITS because our resolutions were so very similar.
One of my many is to cook at home. This recipe looks like one I could actually manage to pull off. THANKS!

Came over from SITS and saw on the comments that you are training for a half-marathon...I am too! My race is March 1st and I have 8 weeks until then. I came a marathon 4 years ago and this is my way of easing myself back into racing again. Good luck with your race! When is it?
