Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken

Absolutely the best comfort food I have found!!  This is good in any weather -- but when it is cold and snowy it is absolutely delish!!

Crockpot Cream Cheese Chicken
4 to 6 boneless chicken breasts
1/4 C. melted butter or margarine
salt & pepper to taste
2 packets dry ranch dressing mix
1 can cream of chicken soup
8 oz. cream cheese, cut into cubes
1/2 C. chicken broth
1/2 C. chopped onion
Brush chicken with butter and sprinkle with salt and pepper.  Place in crockpot and sprinkle 1 packet of the ranch dry mix over all.  Cover and cook on low for 6 to 7 hours.  Then, brown onion in 1/4 cup of juices from crockpot.  Add soup, second packet of ranch dry mix, cream cheese & chicken broth.  Cook until smooth.  Pour over the chicken.  Cover and cook another 45 minutes.  Serve with the sauce.

I always serve this with mashed potatoes, but it could be served also with pasta, rice or stuffing.  Goes great with a meal of salad and/or vegetable and rolls. 

Here it is in the crockpot at the start of the cooking time.

This is during the later part of the 6-7 hour cooking time -

This is after the sauce has been added -

Just delicious with mashed potatoes!!  We had this a few days ago and it absolutely warmed us up -- what with all the snow and ice we have!!

I live in northern Ohio - along Lake Erie.  We are near some islands and out there across the water (ice) is Put-in-Bay and you can see Perry's Monument which is an historic feature on the island.

Lucy just loves to have her picture taken.  Can you tell?????
