I have some chicken breast on the fridge that I don't know what to do- then I saw Kraft video on making this easy chicken in creamy pan sauce- I quickly grabbed my chicken and cream cheese- added caper and chicken broth- it was really good and easy to make! I would definitely make this again- It is even better the next day- the cream cheese make it salty- so no need to add salt- I think a little bit of lemon would be great as well!

This recipe wasn't bad but it wasn't all that good either. My family ate it and was polite. I added leaks and my sister liked those. It just wasn't anything special and really not worth making again.

This was really good. I added a dry packet of Italian Dressing and some onion powder. I left the chicken in the broth to simmer for about 10 minutes with the Italian Dressing Packet and onion powder. I also used a seasoning called "Slap Ya Mama", it adds a hot cajun kick to the dish. Then I added the cream chease. Good over noodles or rice.

I did add garlic powder, onion salt, and pepper for flavor. It turned out pretty good.

I made a few small changes to the recipe. My husband and I both liked it though! VERY FILLING. I sauted some onion before frying the chicken...Added some mushrooms before I made the "sauce"...Used a bit of sour cream and a small amount of cornstarch to thicken up the sauce. VERY GOOD. Kinda like chicken fried steak, only chicken fried chicken. I served it with mashed potatoes and cheesy beans!

I made this last night, and the sauce ruined the chicken! Although I am a big fan of cream cheese, this came out a runny mess. I thought the bits and chicken broth would add depth, but it still tastes like warm, melted cream cheese poured over chicken. This recipes was a waste of perfectly good chicken breasts. I was surprised too, because I usually love the recipes I try from the kraft magazine. Obviously, I won't be making this again!

This was very good, I did make a few changes of my own. When melting the cream cheese I added garlic powder, pepper, onion powder(just a pinch) and chopped up red pepper. To top it off I used cilantro instead of parsley and a little bit of grated sharp cheddar. It was tasty, my fiance was raving about it all night! I went by the recipe for 2 servings, I think next time I will adjust the amounts, it could have used a little more cream cheese and oil.

this was excellent and the sause was amazing all my family(mom &dad, i decided to make dinner that night)all loved the sause. just remember to make sure that the chicken breasts are not frozen, for it takes longer to cook. i made a few changes to the sause tho... i added a bit of garlic powder and onion powder and i didn`t add any mousterd into the sause. for side dishes i hade plain whit rice and tossed salad with fruit in it. kraft mandren dressing realy added a great touch to the salad. in total this was a great meal!!
