Well, if it isn't little ole me participating in Designs by Gollum's Foodie Friday! Since I love to cook AND read recipes, this is a day I look forward to with so many bloggers sharing some of their family favorites . Thanks Michael for coming up with this much anticipated themed day!! :)
Within my Tablescape Thursday post this week I listed my menu for a family luncheon after church. Several people asked about my angel hair chicken recipe, so I decided to share.
Angel hair Chicken
4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1 1/2 lbs.)
1/4 cup butter
1 7oz. pkg Italian dressing mix
1 can Golden Mushroom soup
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 - 3/4 of an 8 oz. tub of cream cheese with chives & onions
Can of mushroom pieces
Hot cooked angel hair pasta
Place chicken in crockpot. In medium saucepan, melt butter, stir in dry salad dressing mix. Stir in mushroom soup, wine, cream cheese and mushrooms until combined. Pour this over the chicken. Cover and cook on low setting for 4-5 hours. Serve chicken and sauce over hot cooked pasta.
~~~~~ A few notes ~~~~~
I doubled this recipe because we had six adults and 2 young children. I was a little nervous about the time factor since we wanted to eat right after church (around 1:00). I had everything ready to be turned on by 7:30 a.m. The first hour I turned the crockpot on high, then turned to low. Right before leaving for church I checked the chicken and it was well on it's way to being done, so the 5 hr. timetable applies if you double this recipe.
I didn't totally double the cream cheese. I used the one tub and then added about 3 oz. of a block or regular cream cheese.
I purchased a four pack of wine bottles and used one full bottle.
I didn't use 2 pkgs. of the dry Italian dressing. I used 1 and 1/3 of another.
Sorry I don't have a lot of fun pictures with this recipe. I forgot to snap some as I was serving this up. I DID use angel hair pasta even though the picture shows thin. I love you friends, but not enough to dig through the recycle bin looking for the angel hair box!
I thought my new thrift store rooster was much cuter than a frozen package of chicken breasts! ;)
