I know, I know.....part of this is cooked on the stovetop which kind of defeats the purpose of the slow cooker. So, this would be more of a Sunday dinner. You can put the chicken on and go run some errands for a few hours, come home and finish out the meal later.

CREAM CHEESE CHICKEN WITH BROCCOLI

4 lbs boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cut into 1/2-inch pieces

1 TBs olive oil

1 pkg (1-oz) Italian salad dressing mix

Nonstick cooking spray

1 pkg (8-oz) sliced mushrooms

1 cup chopped onion

1 can (10-3/4 oz) condensed low-fat cream of chicken soup, undiluted

1 bag (10-oz) frozen broccoli florets, thawed

1 pkg (8-oz) low-fat cream cheese, cubed

1/4 cup dry sherry

Hot cooked pasta

Toss chicken with oil. Sprinkle with Italian salad dressing mix. Place in slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 3 hours.

Coat large skillet with nonstick cooking spray. Add mushrooms and onion; cook 5 minutes over medium heat or until onion is tender, stirring occasionally.

Add soup, broccoli, cream cheese and sherry to skillet; cook and stir until hot. Transfer to slow cooker. Cover and cook on LOW 1 hour. Serve chicken and sauce over pasta.

 I think many crockpot meals benefit from browning the meat first of sauteeing onions, etc.  but three hours, then add then wait another hour, yeah, it means this isn't the usual fix it and forget it for 8 hours, so it would only work if you're at home all day.

I do like the sound of these ingredients, but I would use chicken thighs, which my family prefers to breasts.

The picture looks so good I've been thinking about this all day.  I'll be home tomorrow so I bought the ingredients and we're having this for dinner tomorrow night.
