This chicken is delicious it bathed in a rich and creamy sauce. You definitely need to serve mashed potatoes and rolls with this meal to soak up all excess gravy.

- 1⁄2 teaspoon chicken bouillon cube

- -Lightly grease casserole dish. Place chicken in dish and cover each piece of chicken with ham & cheese slice.
- -Cut the softened cream cheese into small pieces and then add to the boiling wine mixture. Mix well until cheesse is melted and smooth.

This was a simple recipe with nice flavor, but in the future, I would reduce the amount of cream cheese. The sauce was VERY thick and became almost pasty when baked. I would eliminate the chicken bouillon and use chicken broth for additional liquid, also. I served this with steamed asparagus and crusty bread for mopping the sauce. My husband enjoyed it, but I would tailor the recipe to suit our tastes better in the future.
