Place chicken in a 3 1/2- or 4-quart crockpot.
In a medium saucepan, melt the butter. Stir in the dry Italian salad dressing mix. Stir in mushroom soup, white wine, and cream cheese until combined.
Pour over the chicken. Cover and cook on low-heat setting for 4 to 5 hours.
Serve chicken and sauce over hot cooked pasta. Sprinkle with chives, if desired.

Just made this tonight - I was a little dubious because of the crazy hodge-podge of flavors, but holy moly was it yummy! I stuck pretty close to the recipe except for the soup - I could only find regular cream of mushroom, not golden mushroom. And I used cooking sherry instead of regular dry wine, which added a bit more salt than I'd have preferred, so perhaps next time I'll use a low sodium mushroom soup to compensate. And I expect the next time won't be too far away!

Excellent and easy!!! The chicken was so moist and tasty,even pickiest eater in the house liked it. Cooked it on low for 5 hours and came out perfect!

This is a great recipe. I didn't have cream cheese with chives so I just used some regular cream cheese. I also ran out of that and didn't want to go the store, so I just substituted a little sour cream for what I lacked in cream cheese. And to make up for the fact I didn't have chives, I threw in about 1/3 or 1/2 packet of onion soup mix. It still came out delicious. My family LOVED it. I also would like to note that I pounded the chicken breast to about 1/2" thick before I put them in the crock pot. The chicken was not dry at all, and very tender. The chicken will be nice and moist if not overcooked. This is a "TWO THUMBS UP". I will definitely make again.

This was delicious. I actually didn't make it as a slow cooker recipe, simply baking the chicken and making the sauce on the stovetop at the same time. The sauce was plenty thick that way. (I was concerned it would be too watery if not slow-cooked with the chicken.) It was very creamy and smooth and not too wine heavy at all. This is definitely a cream sauce, not a light meal, though.

Oh man....was this ever good! I made my own italian seasoning mix and added lemonade instead of the wine. It was fantastic!

I received this recipe from a friend and we just love this dish! We have varied the Cream of Mushroom soup by using other cream based soups such as Cream of Asparagus and Cream of Celery for a different flair. This is definitely a dish that you could serve at a family gathering. Easy to make and it takes very little preparation time.

My family LOVES this dish! We have 2 children, ages 9 and 2, and they both clean their plates. We first tasted this a few years ago at my sister-in-law's home during a BUCS football game. We loved it, so I found the recipe on this website and made it myself. My husband says mine taste better than hers (he's a smart man!). :) Try this recipe and you will definitely not be disappointed!

I modified the recipe to 8 servings and found the amount of the ingredients listed was too much. The sauce turned out too thick and after 5 hours, the chicken was not ready so I cooked longer. For my taste, I believe there should be less of the cream cheese and soup and more liquid whether it's wine or sherry.
