Italian Cream Cheese Chicken

This is one of those comfort food, simple and delicious recipes.  I have found several recipes of this type and created them into one that my family loves.  I especially love it on a busy day because you can just throw everything in the crock pot and it turns out perfectly every time.  I usually use frozen chicken.
Italian Cream Cheese Chicken
4-5 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1/2 cup butter or l cube
1 package dry Italian dressing mix
2 (10 3/4 oz.) cream of chicken soup
1/2 cup water
1 -8 oz. cream cheese
1 lb. pasta (optional)
Place chicken breasts in crock pot and sprinkle with the dressing mix.
Pour cream of chicken soup and water over top.  Add the butter.

Cook on low for for 6-8 hours.  Stir once or twice.    When chicken is done, remove it from the sauce and shred it.  Add the brick of cream cheese and return the shredded chicken to sauce.  Allow the cream cheese to melt.  Stir until combined.

Now is where it is up to you.  It is great served over cooked pasta or rice. 
I prefer it with the cooked pasta mixed in.  You decide!!
YUM!! Enjoy!!


  1. I have this same recipe and pulled it out to make it in the next week. It is just too hot to turn the oven on here in TX!

  2. This is also great with mashed potatoes. I make this for my family at least twice a month. Oh, and I add frozen broccoli to the chicken for the last hour of cooking.

  3. I haven't made this in forever. I am going to have to pull out the crock pot and make it soon.

  4. Hi Tiffanee,
    Just popped in from Julie's Sporadic Cook. I'm so liking it here and I love that recipe. I've been using my old Farberware Crockpot (yes oldie but goodie:) a lot lately and I am about to gobble up this recipe.

    Thank you so much for sharing...

    I know this may be a bit forward of me but hey, this is the world of blogging. We're playing the Picnic Game over at my blog. Julie hasn't told me what she's bringing yet:) It's a game much like the one many of us played as kids. I'm going on a picnic and I'm bringing... You're more than welcome to join us if you have the time. We played last year and I must say, for a virtual picnic, it went quite well and we had FUN!!! Hope to "see" you there. In the meantime, Bookmarked!!!

Crusty Italian Bread

Do you ever picture yourself eating a slice of Italian bread you know the type with the crunchy outside and soft and delicate inside. Well this is the recipe for you and I have found the secret to getting the perfect crust!! Crusty Italian Bread makes 2 loaves 1 1/3 cups warm water 2 1/4 teaspoons yeast 1 Tablespoon brown sugar 1 1/2 teaspoons salt 1 1/2 teaspoons olive oil 4 cups flour Place warm water, yeast and brown sugar in mixing bowl. Stir and let stand for a few minutes until it start to bubble and foam a bit.  Add olive oil and salt.  Mix and add the flour gradually.  You want to add enough that the dough comes away from the sides of the bowl.  You want to mix it with the dough hook for a few minutes.  Cover and let the dough rise until doubled about 30 minutes. Punch down dough and divide in two and form into two loaves (I doubled the recipe this time.) Cover with a damp cloth and let rise until doubled. Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Beat

Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake

One word for this one: DELICIOUS!!  It is so moist and easy to make.  It did not last long around our house.  My daughter finished the last little bit for breakfast  (she was afraid it would not still be there when she got home). Blueberry Cream Cheese Bundt Cake 1-8 oz. package cream cheese, softened 1/2 cup vegetable oil 1 package white cake mix (mine was vanilla) 1- 3 oz. package instant vanilla pudding mix 4 eggs 2 teaspoons vanilla 2 1/4 cups fresh or frozen, thawed blueberries powdered sugar Preheat oven to 325 degrees. Lightly spray a 9 inch bundt pan with cooking spray. Combine the cream cheese and oil in a medium bowl and beat with a mixer until smooth and creamy. Add the cake mix, pudding mix, eggs and vanilla. Beat at medium speed until blended. Fold in the berries. (Dough will be thick and sticky).  Pour into the prepared pan. Bake for 60 -65 minutes until a wooden pick inserted in the center comes out clean.  Cool the cake on a wire rack for 20 minutes.   Remov

Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles

Everytime I go to Costco I have been picking up a rotisserie chicken.  I shred all the chicken off the bones and it makes for great easy quick meals. This were the perfect use of it.  They were quick, easy and very delicious!! Chicken Cordon Bleu Bundles Inspired by Dessert Now Dinner Later 2 cans of  crescent rolls 1 package of thin sliced ham (lunch meat)  slices of swiss cheese  2- 2 1/2 cups shredded cooked chicken Preheat oven to 375 degrees. Open the cans of crescent rolls. Separate and unroll the triangles.  You can either work on them all at once or in groups.  I made them in groups of 4. Lightly grease your cookie sheet. . Layer one or two slices of ham, 1 slice of cheese.  Then add a small amount of shredded chicken on top.  Fold the edges of the ham around the cheese and chicken. Starting at the fat end of the triangle, roll the crescent dough around all the fillings as tight as you can and continue rolling to the point of the triangle.
