I tried this recipe as written, as I typically do the first time I make a recipe, then I tweak from there. I was skeptical, but I added the soup/cream cheese later in the cooking time as suggested. That part was fine - although I'm not really sure what benefit you get from adding it later as the chicken sort of poaches in the butter and doesn't get brown or anything (at least it didn't for me). The part that made me rate this recipe as "ok" was the Italian dressing mix. The mix packet made the dish just too salty for our tastes. Like some other reviewers have said, next time I will either add 1/2 a packet, use regular Italian dressing, or just add my own herbs and spices. I served it over brown rice (totally unseasoned) and with broccoli (also totally unseasoned, on purpose to dilute some of the salty taste when we mixed the chicken with the rice and broccoli) and that seemed to work pretty well. My family didn't complain of it being salty all mixed together, but after dinner my husband did say "I'm so thirsty!" so even though he didn't equate that with the saltiness of the dish, I did!
