Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken

I grabbed this from Spark recipes. It is a great app to get if you have the iphone. This website prides itself on having healthy recipes and will give you the nutrition information as well. It's great if you count calories, assuming it's correct.

Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken:
3-4 boneless, skinless chicken breasts (1.5 lbs)
1 pkg Italian dressing mix
1/4 C water
1 package low fat cream cheese (8 oz)
1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
3 cups cooked brown rice

Mix the dressing mix and water and pour over the chicken in the crock pot. Cover and cook on low for 8 hours. Mix the cream cheese and soup together in a separate bowl. Remove the chicken from the crock pout and set aside. Pour the CC and soup mixture in the crock pot and mix with the dressing. Once it is mixed together, return the chicken to the crock pot and mix the chicken (at this point it should start to shred). Continue to cook on low until heated throughout. Serve on rice. Makes 6 - 8 servings.
I actually used the leftovers in a Rachel Ray recipe which I will post later.You want to make sure you cook the chicken, but don't over cook it. You can serve it on rice, but I am not a huge rice fan so I don't do that every time. I like it by itself.
