Chicken with Creamy Chive Sauce

A slow cooker recipe - easy comfort food at its best - full of yummy flavor.
Takes 10 minutes max to put together, then about 4 hours in the slow cooker.

6 skinless, boneless chicken breast halves (about 1 1/2 pounds)
1/4 cup butter
1 0.7 oz package dry Italian salad dressing mix
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed golden mushroom soup (or cream of mushroom - low fat is good)
1/2 cup dry white wine
1/2 of an 8-oz. tub cream cheese with chives and onion
Hot cooked pasta or rice (optional)
snipped fresh chives (optional)

1. Place chicken in slow cooker. In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the dry Italian dressing mix. Stir in mushroom soup, wine, and cream cheese until combined (a whisk works well). Pour sauce over the chicken.

2. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours. Serve chicken with sauce. If desired, serve with hot pasta or rice and sprinkle with chives.
