Chicken Stroganoff

I made this new recipe for supper last night, and it was absolutely delicious! Jonathan said it is one of his new favorites. It is actually a Weight Watchers recipe that I printed out months ago and it just resurfaced earlier this week. Try it!

Ingredients:
1 1/2 lbs of chicken breast, cut into 1 inch pieces
1 package of Lipton's Onion Soup mix
1/4 cup water
1 8 oz. fat free or low fat cream cheese, softened
1 can fat free cream of mushroom soup
1- 4 oz. can of mushrooms, drained

Directions:
In crockpot, combine chicken, soup mix, and water. Cook on low heat for 4 hours.
In a separate bowl, combine cream cheese, mushroom soup, and mushrooms. Combine with cooked chicken in crockpot. Continue cooking for one additional hour. (5 hours cooking time total). Serve over angel hair pasta.

***The pasta is what the recipe called for. That is what I had my stroganoff with. However, we had some mashed potatoes in the refrigerator that Jonathan tried it with and he said it was delicious. Also, I think it would be great over rice. Anything goes! Whatever your family enjoys the most.

***If anyone is interested in the Weight Watchers points information: The recommendations were to divide the chicken mixture into 6 portions and serve over 1/2 cup of cooked angel hair pasta. 1 portion of chicken sauce and 1/2 cup pasta equals 7 points.
