{Dinner} - Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken

I love cooking. I love eating. I notice that once I make something and I love it, I want to make it all the time. Lately, I've been getting bored and if I'm bored the hubby must be bored. I want to try new recipes. Worst thing that could happen is that it turns out horrible and I never make it again. NBD.

So, I have set a new goal to make something new for the hubby and I every other week. I think that is a goal that I can keep.

We have a crockpot that I have never used. I have no idea why. I don't like the idea of having food cooking while I am at work (almost like leaving the fire on to me) so I will only use the crockpot on Sundays.

I decided that for my first crockpot meal I would make a Cream Cheese Chicken that I found here. It looked relatively easy and yummy.

It was so, so, so good. The hubby has requested that this meal become one of our regular meals. One more meal added to the list! There are different ways to make this recipe but this is what I did.

1.) I threw 4 pieces of thawed chicken breasts into the pot.


2.) I poured 1 and a half cans of Cream of Mushroom soup on top of the Chicken.



3. I then seasoned the chicken and cream of mushroom soup with Italian Seasoning, Onion Powder, Sea Salt, some garlic and lots & lots of black pepper (not pictured here)



4. I then put the Crockpot on low and let it cook for 4 hours.

5. On the 4th hour, I put a whole block of Cream Cheese in the pot. I left the cream cheese in for a half an hour.


Voila (hubby's plate pictured here, mine was half this size, haha)


The only thing I would do different would be to leave the cream cheese in longer than a half an hour. Based on the picture you can see that the cream cheese did not melt all the way. But the house was smelling so good and with a hubby asking every 5 minutes if it was ready, I just made us our plates (also without stredding the chicken like the recipe called for me to do).

Either way the chicken was so moist and delicous.

Hope you try it if you haven't already. I promise it is delicious and super easy!

Love the crockpot and this recipe! I will only use it on Sundays too because I also don't like to leave it running when no one is home :)

I have been having some major crock pot dilemmas lately so maybe I will try this one. But I am all about leaving a crock pot on while I am gone. How else will dinner get done while I am at work?

Kathy said...

omg... you read my mind because I've been dying for a crockpot recipe!
I'm reluctant to leave a pot on all day... but to come home to a great smelling home is just too good to be true!
Definitely trying this out tomorrow cause I have all the stuff at home. :)
Thanks Faith!

1. Crockpots are THE BEST in the Fall and Winter. You *will* be addicted soon.

2. That recipe looked AH-mazing!

3. What does NBD mean?

4. We bought our first crockpot about 2 years ago. I love that thing beyond what I can tell you. The great thing about them too, is most recipes are uber easy to freeze (a-l- easy-left-overs for later in the month). I've got some pretty good recipes gathered for this great machine- remind me and I'll send you a few!

i bought a crockpot years ago, but the mofo was too big! i am in the market for a slightly smaller one. will need it for sure this winter when the hubby leaves for 6 flippin months. i love that you and your husband are trying new recipes!! Always change things up in the kitchen as well as the bedroom ;) we all grown!

Brown Girl said...

Yum, I make something similar to that and it is splendid...we always serve it with rice and veggies. :)

Whitney said...

Awesome! Thank you for this! I really love to cook too and am always on the hunt for something delicious, easy, and fast! (BTW, love the plates from Target. I have been going back and forth on two different styles.)

Mrs. K said...

I did not know what NBD meant either so thanks for clarifying.:) I just got done eating a crock pot meal. I never used one before getting married. I also had some apprehension about leaving it on while I go to work but I'm over it now. It's so good to come home and have dinner partly ready. Hubby and I both get in late almost daily.

I'm definitely going to be trying your recipe this week because I already have everything at home. Will let you know how it turns out.

Wow! That sounds great! I have the same fear of leaving the crockpot on while I'm gone so Sunday sounds like a great solution! :)

Thanks Faith for your lovely comments.

I am happy you share your journey of your hair on my blog. I hope you can put a post together and link it up on Thoughtful Wednesday Blog Hop.

Kathy said...

I just threw this together this morning and left the crockpot cookin' while I'm at work! Can't wait to try this!!! Thanks so much for sharing!

Quiskaeya said...

Oh that does look delish! Like you I LOVE my crockpot. One stop cooking in a pot is what I call it...lol

I love your blog! Totally cute!

Jenni said...

OH MY GOSH!!! That looks incredible (actually, it looks kind of like a big slop, but I bet it's AMAZING!), and now I'm hungry!!! Lol.

Faith, thanks so much for your sweet comments on my blog, especially the one on my most recent post. I am so in awe of all the wonderful, encouraging things that people had to say after reading about this "anonymous" woman's attack on me. But really, I so appreciate your taking the time to read and comment on my stuff. THANK YOU THANK YOU THANK YOU!

Have a beautiful evening. :)

I will be trying this soon, my family will love it.

Oh Gosh... come over and cook for me!

When i found out i had high cholesterol a few years back, I never really ate creamy, ooey-gooey, hot, rich foods like this. What HAPPENED was, i started CRAVING it. I wasn't supposed to have it, therefore i HAD to have it! LOL! Now you've got me drooling all over the computer desk. I'm a firm believer in cream cheese - it can make anything better! And I mean ANYTHING!

Eve said...

Mmmm, this looks so delicious! I'm just like you, I don't trust leaving anything on like that while I'm gone.

I know this was tasting delicious, hubby makes something just like it, and he adds bits of bacon in with it. Visit my blog and have a look. Yummy
