Healthier Slow Cooker Chicken Stroganoff

Cubed chicken breast cooked in the slow cooker with a creamy sauce mixture. This healthier version includes peas, low-fat cream cheese, butter instead of margarine, and natural cream of chicken soup. You also make your own seasoning mix instead of using a packaged mix. Serve over hot cooked rice or noodles, if desired.
