I should start off with a huge apology for my pictures today. Not sure what was up but they're not looking too great to me.
That being said this recipe has proven to be a crowd pleaser. My family (all 9 of us) loves it and so far I haven't had any friends complain :). I've given the recipe to friends/family and everyone agrees it is really easy and YUMMY!
So here we go.
4 boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 packages of Italian dressing mix (the powder stuff)
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 package cream cheese (the box size with the tinfoil type wrapping inside)
about 1/4 cup butter
Fettuccine noodles (for this amount I usually do 2 of the 16oz packages)
(I doubled my recipe because I was making enough to share so it's going to look like a lot more food in my pictures...just so you know).
Cut your chicken breasts into bite sized pieces, throw in pan with the butter.
Sprinkle your packages of Italian dressing over the top, mix in well.
Cook over medium/medium high heat until chicken is fully cooked, stirring often.
Put the chicken mixture, cream cheese & cream of chicken soup all into the crockpot.
Since at this point all you're doing in the crockpot is letting it warm up and the flavors mix I usually just put the lid on and in like 1/2 hour come back and mix it up a bit and continue to do this until the cream cheese is all mixed in well and everything is well combined. You can add milk if you want your sauce a little more soupy. It will thicken up quite a bit as it cools so don't let how thin it is in the pot fool you.
Here is my picture of it on the noodles on the plate (cook your noodles as per the package direction). Usually I mix the noodles in with the sauce but since I was making such a big batch I didn't do that this time until I was putting away.
It is very filling and very good warmed up for leftovers. (I promise they had salad and stuff with their pasta but T-man likes to load his plate up with each thing individually and before I forgot I used his plate for my picture).
As I mentioned in the title - it is VERY easy to make this on the stove top completely as well. Instead of putting the chicken and everything in the crockpot just do it all in your pot on the stove. I love doing it in the crockpot because it gets it out of the way earlier in the day and we can eat at 5 (or so) instead of starting dinner at 5 (or so).
Have a great weekend!!!!
