The cream cheese adds richness and wonderful flavor to the sauce in this recipe. The almonds sprinkled over the finished dish are a nice touch.—Julie Quail, Orion, Michigan

"Great recipe. Easy to make and my picky eaters love it enough to eat leftover."

"I lost my recipe in a move but we've been making this dish since 2004 and since I didn't copy the name of the poster, I can't give her credit..but it may have been Daddy's Cricket. The original recipe called for chicken thighs instead of breasts. Since this can be made on stove top, oven, or crockpot, it is convenient. The taste is great and even leftovers don't have that "refrigerator" taste. Of course, after making it, most of us tweak it to our liking, e.i. using low fat, chicken breast instead of thighs, etc. I would highly recommend this recipe to anyone."
