crock pot cream cheese chicken

i have already posted a crock pot recipe just like this one...however this is much more delicious prepared this way ;) this is from lauren's food is love blog, and it is even better the next day as leftover's. yum, this is one of chad's favorites!! my sauce is a little more brown than usual in the picture, b/c i had burnt the bottom of the crock pot...oops, it was still fantastic anyway!!

makes 4 servings

~3 lbs chicken pieces (i usually just use 3-4 boneless skinless breasts)
~1 (2/3 ox) package italian salad dressing mix (i use good seasons)

~4 tablespoons melted butter; divided
~1 small onion chopped
~1 garlic clove chopped (i used 2 cloves)
~1 can cream of chicken soup
~8 oz cream cheese
~1/2 cup chicken broth

coat bottom of crock pot with a non-stick cooking spray. place chicken in crockpot & sprinkle italian seasonings packet over chicken pieces. sprinkle with 2 tablespoons melted butter over top. (i just place the chicken in frozen!)

cook on low for 4-6 hours.

melt the 2 remaining tablespoons of butter in saucepan and saute onion and garlic. add cream of chicken soup, cream cheese, and chicken broth; stir until melted & smooth. add the mixture to the crockpot and cook on low for an additional hour.

  3. thanks jessica!! yeah, this recipe is da bomb!! i am eating it right now for lunch ;) so much better than the one i got off of recipezaar or whatever...i will update the link, thanks for letting my know - it was totally wrong, LOL!

  4. We really liked this recipe too! This one looks like a variation from A Year of Crockpotting we used. I don't think there was any butter, onion or garlic. Always good to know I could add this later on!
