I "kind of" cooked this over the weekend. I didn't have the seasoning packet so instead I used my liquid fat free Italian dressing and added zucchini to the pan. I also baked it instead of using my slow cooker. I served it with garden harvest fettuccine noodles instead of the rice. I liked the chicken and zucchini but think the sauce would have been better with the rice. I will try it the right way some day when I am a little more prepared Smile

I made this yesterday and to be perfectly honest, I was very skeptical at first. The ingredients seemed a bit weird and when I added them to the crock pot it looked "interesting". I have to say though, I LOVED it. My hubby also wasn't sure at first but after the first bite he was hooked!

I used regular cream cheese instead of low fat since I couldn’t find it. I also only put 3 chicken breasts since that's what came in the package. I also added some veggies I had on hand - carrots, onion and cabbage. I sounds strange but it was soooo good! I will be making this again with more colorful veggies next time since the dish did look a "boring" but the taste was amazing!

Thanks for the recipe!! Biggrin
