Faux Alfredo

I found a recipe a long time ago somewhere online and have been meaning to try it for awhile now. I finally decided Sunday was a good day for it. I never wrote it down, I just had my trusty photographic memory (cough, cough), so this is based very loosely on something I found online one day. I don't know where or who it came from, but I've decided to make it my own and call it "Faux Alfredo". It tastes really similar to your typical Alfredo sauce, but made with things that I pretty much always have in the pantry. And sorry, but I forgot to take pictures. :(

Faux AlfredoServes 3-4

2-3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
Seasoning for the chicken (I used fresh cracked pepper and some garlic salt, and it was great!)
1/4 cup butter or margarine
1 can Cream of Chicken soup
4 oz. cream cheese, cubed
1/4 cup milk

Place seasoned chicken breasts and butter in crock pot. Cook on high for 2 hours, then turn to low and cook for another 2 hours (don't ask, this is just how I did it and it worked). Add soup, cream cheese and milk. Cook on low for 1 hour, or until all liquids have combined into a gravy-like consistency. Shred the chicken. Serve over pasta, mashed potatoes or rice.

I cooked 8 oz. of Fettucine and had sauce to spare, and it fed the three of us plus enough for my lunch the next day. I poured the leftover sauce over some cooked white rice for lunch today and it was delish, though next time I think I'll try brown rice.

Enjoy! Oh, and if you or someone you know are the originator of what I loosely based my recipe on, my thanks to you!
