Crockpot Creamy Italian Chicken

So everyone's seen this recipe floating around on the internet by now.

At least most everyone has.

It's super-easy, and I added tomatoes and onions to make it even yummier.

I love a good crock pot recipe!

So you just put the onion in the bottom, then the chicken - you can use thawed or frozen chicken breasts.

and then pile everything else on top.

The cream cheese and cream of chicken soup make it creamy (obviously), the tomatoes cut the creaminess, and the Italian dressing gives it seasoning and great flavor.

So good.  I served with sauteed Brussels sprouts.
Crockpot Creamy Italian Chicken

1 onion, chopped
3 chicken breasts (thawed or frozen)

1 packet dry Zesty Italian Dressing mix
8 oz. cream cheese
1 can cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup milk or chicken stock
15 oz. can diced tomatoes, not drained
Hot cooked pasta, for serving (we used penne)

Place the onion in the bottom of your slow cooker.  Place the chicken breasts on top.  Sprinkle over the Italian dressing mix, then add the rest of the ingredients.

Cook on low for about 3-4 hours.  Remove the chicken breasts with tongs and chop into bite-size pieces.  Stir the sauce and return the chicken to the slow cooker.  Cook on low for another hour or so.  Serve over pasta (we used penne).
