The Crock Pot
The 8oz. box of Cream Cheese
In December, I buy more butter, flour, and sugar than the rest of the year combined. I tend to use paper products. And oh how I love some Crock Pot Comfort Food.
My friend Jordan gave me two recipes a few years ago, both of which involved 8 oz of cream cheese, always a sign of something wonderful.
I made this the other day for Sophia’s birthday dinner (not for her, she opted for KFC drumsticks for her special meal.) I had forgotten how easy and delicious it was…This is a great one to throw in the pot before a day of Christmas craziness. Serve on rice and with a great salad. Oh happiness…
Yummy Crock Pot Chicken
4-6 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
1 – pkg dry Italian Salad Dressing mix
1- 8oz package cream cheese
1/2 cup orange juice
4 – tablespoons butter, melted
1- can cream of chicken soup
1/2 – tablespoon onion, minced
salt and pepper to taste
Wash chicken and pat dry, then place it in the crock pot. Pour melted butter over the chicken and salt and pepper it. Sprinkle dry Italian Dressing mix over the chicken and turn it over to coat it with butter and seasoning. Let it cook on low for 5-6 hours. Mix soup, cream cheese, onion and orange juice together and pour over the chicken 1 hour before it is done. Stir the chicken and sauce all together until it is blended. Let cook remaining hour and serve over cooked rice or noodles.
I have no pictures, one: because I am a very poor food photographer as demonstrated here and here, and two: no one eats entrees with cream of chicken soup and cream cheese because of their appearance.
But I will give you something else to look at:
Behold. The Create-a-Crock. In case your CP wasn’t giving you enough, now you can provide your own design, in a color of your choice, with your own pictures.
My life is now complete. (And Erin, yours will be too when you receive this late wedding gift with my face on it.)
Happy Slow Cooking and Comfort Eating Friends!
