Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

I'm cooking again!  Actually, I never really left.  I just haven't tried anything new in a while.  Today I picked out a new one to try from allrecipes.com.  It was called Jennie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken, but I changed it up a little bit, so now it's...

Jennie & Stephanie's Heavenly Slow Cooker Chicken

2 tablespoons butter
1 package dry Italian-style salad dressing mix OR 1/4 cup wet Italian salad dressing
1 can cream of mushroom soup
8 oz lite cream cheese
1/2 cup dry white wine
salt & pepper
4 small skinless, boneless chicken breast OR cut 2 massive ones in half with your official "Game of Thrones" breast cleaver that you purchased at Books-A-Million
(I mean, they have to have it there right?  They have the "Game of Thrones" refrigerator magnets so it's only appropriate that a store of it's caliber would have the rest of the official "Game of Thrones" kitchen gadgetry.  And you can get it at 10% OFF if you join the book club.  JOIN THE CLUB!!!!)
2 TBSP flour
fresh spinach
angel hair pasta

Melt the butter in a saucepan over medium heat.  Stir in the salad dressing, soup, cream cheese, wine, salt & pepper.  Heat until cream cheese melt. 

Place the chicken breasts into the bottom of a slow cooker, and pour the sauce mixture over the chicken.  Cover and cook on Low setting until chicken is tender, about 6-8 hours.

After 6-8 hours, remove a cup of the sauce and whisk in the flour.  Add the flour mixture to the crock pot and mix thoroughly.  (The flour has a tendency to clump if you dump it right into the crock pot.  But hey!  You may like clumping, clumpy.)  Add handfuls of fresh spinach.  By the time you are done cooking the pasta, you should have finished off the rest of the wine bottle.  The chicken & sauce will be ready too.  Serve in bowls.  Blog about it.

Bon appleteat!

Drew of Auburn: Yes!  I loved it!  I can't wait to have it again!  Please put down the "True Blood" barbecue tongs honey.

(P.S.  In all honesty, a fantastic recipe!  The more spinach the better!  And yes, they do really sell "Game of Thrones" refrigerator magnets at Books-A-Million.  No joke.)
