The Ultimate Comfort Food.

When the weather gets cooler — & trust me, the 60-degree lows we’ve experienced around here the past few days have actually been sweatshirt-worthy — I start craving the comfort food. This is, as the title would suggest, the ultimate comfort food. It’s warm, creamy, savory, & you hardly even have to chew! How’s that for comfort?

My friend Kelli made this for us years ago, when we were first married. It was so delicious I couldn’t believe how easy it was. I’ve lightened it up just a tiny bit since. It heats up great for leftovers; just be sure to cook up enough rice to serve with it later!

Creamy Crock Pot Chicken

  • 4-6 frozen chicken breasts, depending on size
  • 1 pkt. powdered Italian dressing mix
  • 3/4 stick (6 Tbsp.) butter
  • 8 oz. Neufchatel cheese (1/3 less fat cream cheese), softened
  • 1 can reduced-fat cream of chicken soup (Campbell’s or Kroger brand)
  1. Place chicken in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Sprinkle dressing mix evenly over top. Slice up butter into chunks & distribute evenly on top of that.
  3. Cook on low 5 hours or high 3 hours.
  4. Shred chicken with 2 forks.
  5. Add soup & cream cheese; mix well.
  6. Let sit in warm Crock Pot several minutes to allow cream cheese to melt.
  7. Stir again & serve over rice.

  1. This looks so good. I made something similar a few weeks ago and it was so savory and comfort-ish. The best thing we ate in quite a while. I’m definitely trying your recipe soon.

  2. We make this all the time in the winter. Love this recipe!
