Slow Cooker Cheesy Italian Chicken with Penne

Here is another one of my favorites that I haven't made in a while. It's so easy to prep and the only thing you really need to do is cook the noodles. The slow cooker does the rest. A perfect weeknight meal!

Slow Cooker Cheesy Italian Chicken with Penne
Serves 4
WW PP=10 (one serving chicken plus one cup penne)
Cal 421, Fat 9g, Carbs 42g, Fiber 4g, Protein 38g

16 oz boneless skinless chicken breasts
2 oz reduced fat cream cheese, softened
1/3 cup reduced fat sour cream
1 good seasons dry Italian packet
1/8 cup shredded Parmesan cheese
1/4 cup Italian 5 cheese blend
1/4 cup petite diced tomatoes
8 oz penne pasta (I used Barilla Plus)

In a small bowl whisk together cream cheese and sour cream. Set aside.

Place chicken in the slow cooker. Sprinkle Italian seasoning evenly over the chicken. Top with shredded Parmesan. Pour cream cheese/ sour cream mixture over the chicken. Add tomatoes and top with the shredded cheese. Cover and cook on low for about 4 hours. Serve over hot cooked penne or any other pasta of your choice. Sprinkle with extra Parmesan cheese, if desired. Enjoy!
