This recipe is delicious home cooking at its finest. This is my daughter’s absolute favorite meal and she begs us to make it every week. The best part about this meal is that it reheats fabulously too, so if you have extras, you have a great lunch for the next day too.
You will need:
- 4 chicken breasts
- 1 pkg. Italian salad dressing mix
- ¼ cup butter, melted
- ¼ cup water
- 1 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 8 oz. package cream cheese
- 2 cans cream of chicken soup
- 1 1/2 cup milk
- 2 tsp. Italian seasoning
- 1 -2 packages of bowtie pasta
Add water, Italian salad dressing mix, 1 tsp. Italian Seasoning and melted butter to the crockpot. Mix well. Add chicken and coat with mixture. Put lid on and cook on low for 2 to 3 hours.
Remove chicken and cut into bite-size pieces. Set chicken aside.Soften cream cheese. Mix in soup, milk, and 2 tsp. Italian seasoning. Stir until smooth. (You can warm the cream cheese in microwave for 2 minutes to help get mixture smooth) Add to the sauce that is in the crock-pot and mix well. Add chicken and stir. Cook 1 hour on low. Cook 1-2 packages of bowtie pasta according to directions, depending on how many people you are feeding.
