Cream Cheese Chicken

(This recipe is from Worldwide Ward Cookbook by: Deanna Buxton, recipe from Susan Madison, page 104.)

1/2 C. butter
1 envelope Italian salad dressing mix
2 lb. boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 10.75 oz. can cream of chicken soup
1 8-oz. pkg. cream cheese

Turn crock pot on high. Place butter in bottom of crock-pot. When the butter has melted, add the Italian dressing mix; stir into butter until well mixed. Cut the chicken breasts into 1-inch strips. Place in crock-pot and stir to coat chicken with butter and dressing mix. Cover and cook on high for 2 hours, until chicken is cooked. Remove chicken to plate to cool. Add soup and cream cheese. Stir to melt, and mix well until smooth and creamy. Stir in chicken and serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or hot buttered noodles. Note: This recipe freezes well-just place cooled chicken and sauce in a freezer bag and freeze. To serve, thaw and heat until piping hot and bubbly. Makes 6 servings.
