  1. 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 Birdie

    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.
  3. 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.
    • 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!!
  5. 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 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!
  6. 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! :)

    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.
    • 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.
  8. 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! ??
  9. I made this tonight and I'm not sure what happened. This seems pretty fool-proof, and no one mentioned this in the comments. But my cream cheese did NOT melt, or blend into the sauce at all. It left a ton of chunks of cream cheese that just looks awful. It's not a creamy consistency, and I tried to break up the chunks to 'blend' in. I let it sit for about 30 extra minutes on hot in the crockpot to melt it, and it just stayed chunky. :(

    I made this yesterday for my teenage daughters before my husband and I went to the SF 49er game. I cooked up some thin spaghetti noodles (I didn't have egg noodles) to go with it. Both girls texted me separately to tell me that dinner was sooooo good! This recipe will definitely go in the "make again" group.
