Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta

Just tried this for dinner tonight, and it did not disappoint. I guess my CRAZY "5-kid life" lures me to these easy crock pot recipes. Is there such a thing as a crock pot junkie? Maybe. Whatever puts food on the table, right?

(I promise....the next meal I post won't come from one of "those").

Creamy Chicken and Mushroom Pasta
(adapted from

4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (I used frozen chicken tenders)
4 oz. can of mushrooms, drained
1 packet of Ranch dressing
1 chicken bouillon cube
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz. cream cheese

1 box of your favorite pasta, cooked

Place chicken breasts and mushrooms on bottom of crock pot, then sprinkle ranch dressing packet on top. Dissolve the bouillon cube in 1 cup boiling water and pour over chicken. Cook on LOW for about 2 hours. Stir in soup and cream cheese until well blended then cook for another hour. (My slow cooker cooks really fast, times may vary)

Serve over pasta and with your favorite rolls or vegetable side dish.
