Dinner Is Served! Part 1

Evening lovelies!
Here in the attic we don't just make delicious treats (though we are rather good at it); we also cook delicious dinners. Being that I do a lot of crafting on top of baking mixed with a rather active job dinners don't generally get the attention they deserve. The quicker and easier the better. So I'll going to try and add some yummy dinners that are super simple to the blog. A lot of crock pot recipes coming your way because lets face it throw it all in a big bowl and forget it for no brainer. We have literally worn the knob off our crock pot. First up is a delicious Italian Chicken over pasta. I melded together two different recipes but seemly only saved one of the sites. If anyone reading this recognizes it enough to know the second site please tell me. Love to link back to them and give credit. Until then the first site for Italian Chicken.

Italian Chicken over Pasta 
2 Large or 4 small chicken breasts
1 pkg Italian Dressing Mix
1 Can Cream of Chicken
1 Can Cream of Mushroom
1 Can Chicken Broth (I used Swanson) 4 oz Cream Cheese.
Wide Egg Noodles

  1. Pour 1/3-1/2 cup of chicken broth in a cup (doesn't have to be exact). Pour the dressing mix in broth and whisk together.
  2. Pour remaining broth in crock and add both cans of soup.  Mix together.
  3. Place chicken in soup and pour dressing mix over chickens.
  4. I cooked for 2 hours on high then 4 hours on low.  The chicken came out amazingly tender but you could also cook it for 8 hours on low or 5 hours on high.
  5. About 30 minutes before you eat starts cooking your noodles.  While your water is heating up shred or cut up your chicken and return to crock and also add cream cheese.
  6. Once your cream cheese has melted in and your pasta is ready spoon a heaping helping of chicken over it and enjoy!  If your sauce is too thin add some more cream cheese to help bind it together.

Tomorrow I'll be posting part 2 which will be the dessert we had with dinner!

*Doggy Update*  Still no sign of our precious puppy but praying hard that she is at least safe and happy where she is at.
