Cream Cheese Chicken

I haven't been able to update this (or cook) for awhile now because of school and work.. sigh.

I decided it was necessary though to take some time out of my evening to make a homemade, delicious Sunday dinner.

And what are we having for Sunday dinner?

A cream cheese chicken casserole. Mmmm mmmm mmmm mmmm....mmmm!

When I found this recipe, I looked at the nutritional facts and found that it was CRAZY high in fat, calories and cholesterol (hello 100% DV!), so this is my healthier, lower calorie/fat/cholesterol version.

  • 3 pounds skinless, boneless chicken breasts
  • 1 ounce Italian salad dressing mix 
  • 2 tablespoons margarine
  • 2 cloves minced garlic
  • 1 can 98% fat free cream of chicken soup
  • 8 ounces fat free cream cheese, cubed
  • 1/2 cup sodium free chicken broth
  1.  Sprinkle chicken with dry salad dressing mix.
  2. Melt margarine in skillet and brown chicken.
  3.  Remove chicken to casserole dish.
  4. Add garlic to skillet and cook slightly. 
  5. Add cream soup, cream cheese and chicken broth to make sauce. Stir until smooth consistency. 
  6. Pour sauce over chicken and bake at 350 degrees for 45 minutes to an hour or until done.
  7. Serve over potatoes, rice or pasta. Enjoy!
