      Yes, but just make sure it is cooked all the way through at the end of the cooking time. May need just a little bit longer.

          Hi Tara, We have only made this as the recipe directs. Cream cheese makes it thick and creamy. I read where one viewer used chive cream cheese and said it was delicious. I’m not sure what would happen if you left it out completely. Best of luck to you!

    I make this the night before last. My husband really liked it, however the next day this dish was so much better! The cream was thicker…and much more flavor. I need to make this a must in our dinner choices. I would not change a thing.
    Thank you so much

    I made this last week, and my husband just went gaga over it! Great recipe, I definitely will be making this again!

  3. Suzanne says:

    Loved this! Not only did my picky 3 year old eat it and like it she asked for leftovers the next day. I used the dry ranch dip mix though; I did not add the additional seasonings (forgot) it was super tasty and it will be added to the favorites at our house.

  4. Pat says:

    I want to try this chicken recipe but I only have ranch dressing in a bottle. Would I dare use a dab of that in place of the ranch mix? How about cream of mushroom soup in place of the cream of chicken? Everyone loves mushrooms with their chicken. With the mushroom soup at least there is the taste of mushrooms. Thank you so much. I’m honestly not trying to ruin this wonderful recipe.

    • Cyd says:

      The taste may be altered just a little from the original recipe just because cream of chicken and cream of mushroom have a totally different taste. But they both go well with chicken. You should be fine with your ranch change. Let us know how it all turns out! :)

    Yum!! I made this tonight using chicken thighs and chive cream cheese! I put it over mashed potatoes and it was AMAZING!! My fiancé absolutely loved it and he usually doesn’t like my chicken dishes. Seriously. I am positive that I will be making this again. YUM!!

  6. Kay says:

    I made this for dinner last night and my incredibly picky 2 year old ate it! I didn’t add the cream cheese but the sauce was just great! I also didn’t have paprika or oregano so I just added Italian Seasoning and it smelled and tasted so delicious! I didn’t have any leftovers. And again…my 2 year old actually ate the chicken and noodles. I was in shock and kept hitting my husband on the arm to get him to look every time she took a bite. ha ha. This is definitely a keeper!

  7. Katie says:

    I made this for dinner tonight and my husband and I both really enjoyed it. The chicken itself is tender and flavorful enough at the end of slow cooking it that someone who doesn’t want to add the cream cheese to make the creamy sauce could probably just eat the chicken like that with some veggies. However, we did make the creamy sauce and served it over the chicken with some pasta mixed with peas and it was delicious. We will definitely be making it again soon, maybe with the chive cream cheese suggestion next time. Thank you for this recipe! :)

  8. Krystal says:

    I am wondering on your crockpot chicken recipes, does the chicken need to be thawed or can it be frozen? Also what would be a good way for me to make some of your recipes smaller. A lot of them call for three or four chicken breasts and there is only me, my husband (who doesn’t eat a lot of chicken) and my two year old daughter in my family.

    • Cyd says:

      Hi Krystal. We have tried some of our recipes with frozen and thawed chicken breasts. We usually specify in the directions when we use frozen. There is always a lot of controversy over how safe it is to put frozen chicken breasts in a slow cooker. When we have tried it we have not had any problems. Frozen chicken may take a little longer to cook. With this particular recipe we used thawed chicken breasts. Hope this helps a little. As far as adapting it for a smaller family, you could just cut the recipe in half. Just watch closely because the cooking time may not take as long.

    I made this last night for the first time and the whole family loved it which is hard to pull off! It was delicious! I chose to use onion and chive cream cheese and it was very good but I’m sure it’d be just as good with plain cream cheese. Thanks for a great recipe! ☺️
