Creamy Italian Slow Cooker Chicken

4 chicken breast
1 Packet Zesty Italian Seasoning
2 cans Cream of Chicken Healthy Request soup
1 8oz 1/3 less fat cream cheese softened

Optional, frozen spinach, green beans, broccoli, peas or chopped green onion, bell pepper or onion

Place frozen or fresh chicken in the slow cooker on high for about 3 hours, drain liquid and any fat.

Spray slow cooker with cooking spray, chop, shred or cut the chicken in strips, place chicken back in the slow cooker, add Italian seasoning evenly over chicken

Cook until chicken in cooked through on low (if adding veggies, add now)

About 1 hour before serving, Cube cream cheese and place on top of the chicken, add soup and stir well

Cook for about 1 additional hour to heat through, stir well before serving

Serve on brown rice, whole wheat wide noodles, baked potato or steamed vegetables

You can cook it on high the entire time to reduce cooking time, but do not cook it on high if you are gone for the day.  If you are gone all day, cook the chicken and vegetables with Italian Seasoning during the day on low and when you get home, heat the soup, and cream cheese in the microwave or in a sauce pan before adding to the slow cooker.
