CROCK POT ITALIAN CHICKEN
2-3 chicken breasts thawed
1 (8 oz.) pkg. cream cheese
2 cans cream of chicken soup
1 pkg. dry Italian Dressing Mix
Mix cheese, soup and Italian dressing together. It helps to soften the cream cheese first. Place chicken breasts in crock pot. Pour sauce over chicken. Cover and cook all day on low or 4-6 hours on high. (I like to shred the chicken in the crock pot about an hour or so before serving). Serve over rice.

1 Oreo Pie Crust
12 Oreo cookies
8oz Cream Cheese, softened
1/3 cup sugar
2 cups whipped cream (Cool Whip)
In a small bowl, smash up 12 of the Oreo cookies…Set aside. In a medium bowl using a hand mixer, combine the cream cheese and sugar…Beat until light and fluffy. Add in the whipped cream and the smashed up Oreo cookies…Then use a rubber spatula and combine gently until well blended and the cookies are distributed throughout. Spoon into the Oreo pie crust and refrigerate about 2 hours or until firm.
Optional garnish… Cut 4 Oreo cookies in half and place the halves, cut side down, around a dollop of whipped cream placed in the center and dusted with Oreo cookie crumbs.
Note: The 2 cups of whipped cream is not the same as whipping cream. For this recipe the cream should be whipped. Use either freshly whipped cream or Cool Whip or similar… But the cream is to be whipped, not liquid.
