Amazing slow cooker chicken

This might not look too spectacular, but trust me this was some of the best chicken and sauce we have had! And it's super easy to make and only takes four ingredients! Can't beat that!

4 chicken breasts (I used frozen)
1 block of cream cheese
1/2 stick butter
1 pkg. Italian dressing seasoning mix

Toss all of that in a slow cooker and put it on low for four-five hours. We served it over rice, because it makes the most amazing sauce.

Taters Precious!

These potatoes are a spin off of Pioneer Woman's fluffy new potatoes. I just changed it up a bit.


10 red potatoes
3/4 tub of cream cheese
1/2 cup sour cream
1 stick of butter
1/3 cup mozzarella

Boil or bake your potatoes till they are almost cooked. I did both, I boiled them for about 15 minutes (mine were HUGE) and then baked them in the oven for 10 minutes. I then sliced them in half and scooped out most of the filling. You have to be careful here, because you want to leave a little bit of potato in the skin so it can hold the mashed potato mixture.
I melted the butter and cream cheese together, and then added the sour cream and salt and pepper. I mashed the insides of the potatoes with about half, maybe a little more of the butter and cream cheese mix.
Put the potato mixture back into the skins and then I spooned a little more of the cream cheese/butter/sour cream mix onto the potatoes. Then I topped it with a little mozzarella.
Bake at 400 for 20 minutes, or until the cheese is a little golden.

I got several comments saying these were the best potatoes EVER!!!

Slow Cooker Chicken that doesn't have a name...yet


3 boneless skinless chicken breasts (I put mine in frozen.)
1 can of golden mushroom soup
1 pkg. of Italian dressing mix
1 green bell pepper
1/4 cup chicken stock
1/4 cup heavy cream


Put the chicken in your slow cooker. Put the soup through chicken stock over the chicken. Cook on low for 4-5 hours. You have to watch it because the chicken can easily overcook! When it's done, stir in the heavy cream. Serve over rice!
