Delicious Crock Pot Cream Cheese Chicken

 

I never realized how handy crock pots were until I came out to college and had to cook for myself. I was completely clueless on the crock pot front and until my roommate showed me the wonders of crock pot cooking, I was a little lost. One of my favorite crock pot dishes involves chicken and, yes, cream cheese, (and, of course, a crock pot.) This recipe is so easy and simple, and if you serve it with the appropriate side dishes it will be a hit no matter what night of the week it is. With a dish this simple, you really can have it any night of the week.

Here are the ingredients that you will need:

  • 4 thawed chicken breasts
  • 1 package of cream cheese
  • 1 package of Good Seasoning Italian dressing

If you are unfamiliar with crock pot cooking, I'll give you a little background or basic information that you will find valuable before you start making your crock pot chicken dish. Crock pots are basically slow cookers that allow you to make delicious meals without taking up all your time on an afternoon. Your crock pot will usually have two or three heat settings, and the sooner you want your meal made, the hotter heat setting you will have to use. If you have more time to let the chicken cook, then let it cook on a lower heat setting.

The gist of crock pot cooking is that you throw in a bunch of ingredients together and then they magically cook together to make a delicious meal ready for you when you come home from work or school. With this particular recipe, you will need to put all of the ingredients in. (And again, make sure that the chicken breasts are completely thawed. It might be best to take out the chicken breasts the night before and let them thaw out that way.) What makes this particular recipe unique is the cream cheese. Do not just dump the cream cheese in and expect it adequately melt and distribute evenly. When you put the cream cheese into the crock pot, use a large spoon to spread the cream cheese around the chicken and also make sure to get the Italian dressing mix thoroughly spread in the cream cheese and on the chicken. The trick to this recipe is simply making sure that the cream cheese and Italian dressing mix are well combined and spread.

Now all you have to do is turn on the crock pot and cook it for four to six hours. It will definitely be a hit! And if you serve it with some rice and carrots, you will have a delicious meal for an everyday sort of night. Enjoy!
