Ingredients

  • 6 skinless, boneless chicken breasts (about 2 1/2 lbs.)
  • 2 teaspoons seasoned salt
  • 2 tablespoons canola oil
  • 1 (10 3/4-oz.) can reduced-fat cream of mushroom soup
  • 1 (8-oz.) package 1/3-less-fat cream cheese
  • 1/2 cup dry white wine
  • 1 (0.7-oz.) envelope Italian dressing mix
  • 1 (8-oz.) package sliced fresh mushrooms

How to Make It

  1. Sprinkle chicken with seasoned salt. Cook chicken, in batches, in hot oil in a large skillet over medium-high heat 2 to 3 minutes on each side or just until browned. Transfer chicken to a 5-qt. slow cooker, reserving drippings in skillet.

  2. Add soup, cream cheese, white wine, and Italian dressing mix to hot drippings in skillet. Cook over medium heat, stirring constantly, 2 to 3 minutes or until cheese is melted and mixture is smooth.

  3. Arrange mushrooms over chicken in slow cooker. Spoon soup mixture over mushrooms. Cover and cook on LOW 4 hours. Stir well before serving.

  4. Note: For testing purposes only we used Good Seasons Italian All Natural Salad Dressing and Recipe Mix.

  5. To make ahead: Prepare recipe as directed. Transfer to a 13- x 9-inch baking dish, and let cool completely. Freeze up to one month. Thaw in refrigerator 8 to 24 hours. To reheat, cover tightly with aluminum foil, and bake at 325° for 45 minutes. Uncover and bake 15 minutes or until thoroughly heated.
