First things first: Heather Bakes now has a Facebook page!!! Do me a huge favor and click on the Facebook linky on the right sidebar and “Like” the page… I’m gearing up for some cool stuff (giveaways, perhaps?) so that’s probably the best way to stay abreast of the happenings. I mean, if you check Facebook 20 times a day like I do…
Tonight I tried yet another Pinterest recipe: Angel Chicken. It involved many of my favorite things: The crock pot, mushrooms, wine, cream cheese, chicken and butter. I did alter the recipe a tiny bit based on what we had on hand.
Crock Pot Angel Chicken
(Adapted from Cleverly Inspired)
- 4 Boneless, Skinless Chicken Breasts
- 1 8oz Package Sliced Mushrooms
- 2 4oz Cans Sliced Mushrooms
- 1/4 Cup Butter
- 1 0.7oz Package Zesty Italian Dressing Mix
- 1 10.75oz Can Condensed Reduced-Fat Cream of Mushroom Soup
- 1/2 Cup White Wine
- 4oz Cream Cheese with Chives & Onion
- Whole Wheat “Egg” Noodles
1. Melt butter in saucepan. Once butter is melted, stir in Italian dressing packet, condensed soup, wine and cream cheese. Stir until everything melts and mixture is smooth.
2. Layer mushrooms on bottom of slow cooker.
3. Place chicken breasts on top of mushrooms.
4. Pour sauce over chicken breasts. Cover and cook on “High” for 3 hours.
5. Once chicken is done, cook noodles. Spoon chicken, sauce and mushrooms over noodles and serve.
Okay, so not the healthiest meal ever, but really good!! It tastes a lot like chicken stroganoff and seems fancier/more difficult than it is. I will say that Jack was not a fan, but that probably had to do with the number of snacks consumed this afternoon.
As part of the Foodbuzz Tastemaker Program, I received a coupon for a free bottle of Marzetti’s Simply Dressed salad dressing to try. Although it was a little hard to track down (Target doesn’t carry it), I finally found some at Kroger today. I ended up grabbing the Greek Feta salad dressing.
(Unlike in this picture, the dressing does not come with a toy car on top… Jack was “assisting” with my food styling.)
So this is a little more high-cal then I usually go for (110 cals, 12g fat/2 Tbs) but I liked the minimal ingredient list- no preservatives, no trans-fats, no HFCS or artificial colors. And guess what? It tastes just like tzatziki!! Tangy, with lots of dill and fresh pepper and a hint of cucumber. I just used it on a salad tonight, but I bet it would make an awesome chicken marinade… and then drizzle it on a pita with hummus, chopped chicken and cucumbers. Just sayin’.
Hope everyone had a great day! Don’t forget about the Facebook page!
