  1. What if I am using frozen fully cooked chicken breast?! Would the cook times listed still apply?
  2. Just found out family members are coming, had to double the recipe, how much longer do you suppose I'll have to cook it?
  3. I have to double the recipe, how much longer do you think I'll have to cook the recipe


  1. I made a mistake and started the crockpot on low. After 3 hours the frozen chicken was barely thawed. It took 3 hours to cook after that, and it was delicious. I will make it again, but never from frozen chicken, which the USDA, doesn't reccomend. I really liked the flavor of it and next time will increase the amount of italian seasoning. Thanks for the recipie.
  2. You really don't need the cream cheese for this recipe. It may add some creaminess but frankly the calories and cholesterol just aren't worth it. This recipe also works with chicken breasts bone in or chicken breasts no bone, and porkchops. Just browned the pork chops first I've had success with this recipe with pork chops, Browning the chops first and cooking the entire thing on high for 4 to 5 hours. You can also use Campbell's cream of chicken soup with herbs, which is new. That way you can eliminate the Italian dressing and illuminate sodium at the same time. Excellent !
  3. Delicious! I had to sub reduced sodium condensed soup but it was still great!
  4. Simple and yummy. Thanks for sharing. Made for Name That Ingredient Tag.
  5. This is good and easy to make. I followed the recipe as written. My children really enjoyed this. Made for Spring PAC 2010.

I'm a young, new wife, and I love cooking for my husband! I like to keep things simple by cooking with few ingredients and using a crock pot. What could be easier than that?
