  1. Love how easy this recipe is, combined with being able to swap the cream cheese for lactose free without problems makes this a regular 🙂

  2. Love this recipe, very creamy and super delicious. My family thought it was great 🙂 I made it in my 3.5 litre crockpot as it has a lower heat than my larger slow cooker. I will definitely make this again 🙂 I used chicken breast instead and that was fine, next time I’ll try the thighs 🙂

  3. I was planning to have pasta with this dish, but when I tasted that sauce… it soon changed to a lazy meal of chips.
    That sauce drizzled over the chips was to die for.
    What a great dish

  4. This is so delicious! Was googling new recipes to try in my slow cooker and decided to try this! Added a bit extra of the herbs and had it on pasta, beyond tasty! Hubby is obsessed, would definitely recommend!

  5. This is amazing!! I added chorizo and last hour added penne with some chicken stock and water into slow cooker! Mouth watering goodness!!!

  6. My family enjoyed eating their dinner tonight.
    Thank you for sharing a yummy recipe. Will make again in the future 🙂

    Absolutely delicious!!
    I’ll add more mushrooms and a full capsicum next time. Might even try adding a little bacon. It doesn’t need bacon for flavour at all but just to experiment.
    Highly recommended this recipe.

  8. Very versatile this recipe. I have added, roasted capsicum strips, an extra carmelised onion, sundried tomato, olives, capers, baby spinach or just on its own as the recipe states. Very easy and tasty.

  9. Had me at cream cheese. Made this with 2 chicken breasts and halved the other ingredients. Definately going to be making this more often.

    1. 5 stars
      This was great! Added extra garlic and herbs and served with mash. Would add more cheese next time and try with pasta.
