In truth, I couldn't call this creamy but that is absolutely fine by me. I'll admit to forgetting the potato flakes so mine was really thin but the flavor is grand. I love all the fresh veggies in it. I used veggie pasta with it. The 5 1/2 hrs in the crock pot on high yielded incredibly tender chicken and still firm veggies. I really love this healthy and tasty dish. Made for ZWT4.
