Crockpot Italian Chicken

Sorry no pic but this was so great! We had this last night and the whole family loved it. This would be a great meal to take to new moms. 

4 chicken breasts
2 cans of cream of chicken
1 cup milk
1 packet Italian dressing mix
1-8oz cream cheese
Rotini Pasta

Spray crockpot with cooking spray. Place chicken in crock pot. 
Mix cream of chicken, milk, Italian dressing packet and pour over chicken.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. 
Shred chicken and place cream cheese in crock pot and allow to melt. Stir. The cream cheese makes it so yummy!!!!
Boil your rotini pasta according to package instructions.
Serve chicken mixture over pasta. 
We served this with Italian bread and strawberry feta salad. Yum!

Easy Strawberry Pie

This was SO GOOD and super easy to make. I am not a strawberry pie fan but this was great! 
  • 1 C sugar
  • 1 C Water
  • 3 T strawberry gelatin mix
  • 1 Pint Fresh Strawberries
  • 3 Tablespoons Cornstarch
  • 1 pie crust, cooked and cooled 
  1. Mix  sugar, cornstarch, and dry gelatin in a bowl. 
  2. Add water and stir.
  3. Place mixture in a pot and cook until thick and clear over medium high heat. You have to stir constantly to prevent burning. 
  4. Set aside and let cool. 
  5. While mixture is cooling, wash and cut strawberries in half. Place strawberries in pie crust.
  6.  Once the filling has cooled, pour over strawberries and chill pie until ready to serve. Serve with cool whip or vanilla ice cream.
