Recipe of the Week

I love to try new recipes, often times to my family's dismay, but I get bored cooking and eating the same things. Plus, I love cookbooks and can't pass up a friend's wonderful recipe. So I usually try a new recipe a week and then we rate them to see if it gets added to our list. Each recipe gets up to a five star rating.

So, here's this week's from a wonderful friend of mine:

Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken (5 STARS!)
--1 can cream-of-chicken soup
--1/2 cup chicken broth
--frozen chicken pieces
--packet of Italian salad dressing mix
--2 cloves minced garlic
--block of cream cheese (to add later)

Put everything except for the cream cheese into the crockpot. Cook on low for 6 hours, or until the chicken is cooked through and begins to shred. Shred the chicken with two large forks, and mix in the block of cream cheese. Switch the crock to high and cook for another 30 minutes, or until the cream cheese is fully melted. Serve over pasta or rice.

Super easy and super yummy, oh, except Bill got a hold of it and he thought he'd change it up a bit. So his modified version changes the cream cheese to a can of cheddar cheese soup and a little cheddar cheese sprinkled in. It was delicious and would be great as tacos to use up the leftovers.

Thanks Ginny!!!
