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.



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!
