Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken

Link I need some practice at improving my photographing of food!
It doesn't help that it just keeps getting darker earlier.
Thanks for bearing with me!

I tried two new crockpot meals this weekend. Saturday night I made a buffalo chicken lasagna and it was a fail. It just didn't have the taste we had hoped for, and it burned a bit to the sides of the crockpot. Although a bit hesitant, I continued with the plan to try another new chicken recipe on Sunday. This Cream Cheese Chicken came from A Year of Slow Cooking. I am glad we did try this becauseit came out much better! It was tasty served over whole grain pasta. I think next time I will try to incorporate some vegetables into the mix.

You will need:
-1 can cream-of-something soup (I used mushroom)
-1/2 cup chicken broth
-frozen chicken pieces (I used about 2 pounds of frozen breasts I had)
-packet of Italian salad dressing mix
-2 cloves minced garlic
-block of cream cheese-to add later

1) Put everything except for the cream cheese into the crockpot, and cook on low for 6 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and begins to shred.
2) Shred the chicken with two large forks, and mix in the block of cream cheese.
3) Switch the crock to high and cook for another 30 minutes, or until the cream cheese is fully melted.
4) Serve over pasta.


  1. This looks way good! I'm putting it on the menu for next week or maybe over the weekend!

  2. Hey girl! You don't have an email address up otherwise I would have just emailed you...but I went and edited this photo in to see if that could help with the lighting issue and I got it a little better for least I think it is better. Here is the link to where I uploaded the edited version to

    If you want, email me and I can email it to you and also if you would like to know what settings I used in picnik :-) Just trying to help a fellow foodie/blogger out! I know how much the no sunlight thing sucks!
