Cream Cheese Chicken

Best Blogger Tips
This is hands down one of the best recipes I make. The great thing about it is that it's super easy to make, and it's easy to double, triple, or whatever you need! The other great thing about this recipe is that it freezes really well. So it's an awesome freezer cooking recipe!

I package 1 batch up in a 1 quart freezer bag, label it, and stick it in the freezer. This makes for such an easy meal the next time around, as all I have to do is cook the noodles or make mashed potatoes to go with it. :)

Here's the recipe:
1 .7-ounce envelope Italian dressing mix
1/2 cup butter
2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast
1 10.75-ounce can cream of chicken soup
1 8-ounce package cream cheese
Turn slow cooker on High. Place butter in bottom of slow cooker. When the butter has melted, add one envelope Italian dressing dry mix. Stir into butter until well mixed. Cut chicken breasts into 1" strips. Place in slow cooker and stir to coat with butter and dressing mix. Cover and cook on High for 2 hours. Remove chicken to plate to cool. Add cream of chicken soup and cream cheese. Stir to melt and mix well until smooth and creamy. Remove sauce from slow cooker and allow to cool. Place chicken and sauce into a gallon resealable freezer bag. Label. Freeze.
To serve: Thaw. Heat until piping hot and bubbly. Serve over mashed potatoes, rice, or hot buttered noodles.

It's been a long time...

Best Blogger Tips
I forgot about this blog! haha I'll try to do better about updating it.

Eli - is almost 4 years old. He's such a good helper and does really well with Sophie and Isaac. He is really interested in reading, and we are working on the beginnings of how letters sound and fit together. Right now he can read 2 words: no & stop. I should have taught him something more positive, but that's hindsight. ;) His favorite books right now are the Seuss stories and the Curious George stories. His favorite character is Lightning McQueen!

Sophia - Sophia turned 2 a few months ago. She is a precocious little girl for sure! She loves playing with Eli and is developing a very creative imagination. She loves reading all kinds of stories...a few of her favorites are Olivia (a gift from Gramma B and a well matched one for sure :D ) and The Very Busy Spider. Sophia likes to watch Pooh and The Littles with Eli. We'll be potty training full time soon, so pray for all of us.

Isaac - Isaac turned 1 a few months ago. He is walking all over the place. His sweet temperament has stayed with him, and he remains by far the happiest!. Isaac is really interested in the Gossie books and LOVES Goodnight Moon right now. Isaac fits in so well with the family; he adores Eli and Sophie.
