Crock Pot Italian Chicken

Serves 6

Prep time: 3-10 minutes

Cook time: 6 hours in crock pot

Cost: $4.85

(chicken: 4.00, cream cheese: I got mine for .50, but a more normal yet still cheap price is a little over a dollar, white sauce: .30, Italian seasoning: homemade: .05; I don't know how much it is to buy it.)

4 chicken breasts--about 2 lb.

8 oz. package cream cheese

1 can cream of chicken soup (or 2 Tbsp butter, 2 Tbsp flour, 1 C milk, 1 tsp bouillon granules)

1 package Italian seasoning (or 2 Tbsp homemade Italian seasoning)

Put chicken in crock pot. Add cream cheese in chunks. Add cream of chicken soup and sprinkle with Italian seasoning. Cook on high for 6 hours or whenever dinner is. Shred chicken and mix the shredded chicken with the cream cheese, sauce, and seasoning. Serve over rice or starch of your choice.  

If making a white sauce instead of using cream of chicken soup:

Melt butter in a pot. Whisk in flour and bouillon. Let bubble for 1 minute, stirring constantly. Whisk in milk. Stir until boiling. Reduce heat and simmer until thickened (should take 1-3 minutes).
