This recipe makes a great Sunday dinner! Lots of flavor in the gravy......I did thicken it a bit. Next time will cook on low for 4 to 4 1/2 hrs. as 5 hrs. was too long........chicken was a bit dry.
I could not find mushroom gravy so I used cream of mushroom soup. It was wonderful. Also, it kept my husband guessing as to the "spiciness" the Italian Dressing gave it. The family loved it. Definitely adding it to my recipe box.
I would have given it a five, but I did not use brown gravy or "dry " Italian dressing mix. In place of them I used cream of mushroom and cream of chicken soup and lite Italian dressing. I doubled the recipe to have. left overs for the next day. because my granddaughter's fiance is a very picky eater I didn't think he would enjoy it. However, he enjoyed it so much he came for seconds and would have done thirds, but said he didn't want to appear greedy. I felt so proud, because it was a first. To "land41 ", substitute cream of chicken soup for the mushroom gravy and leave the cream cheese out to become room temperature before putting in the pot. Also let it cook an additional 30-45 minutes instead of 15 minutes. My chicken was so moist it was like I infused it. And the gravy was outstanding. This is definitely a keeper in our family.
Seems to be a strange combination of ingredients, but it turns out really tasty! Easy to make too.
The sauce never really thickened; the cream cheese didn't completely melt into the other sauce and was a bit lumpy. IF I make this again, I'll brown the chicken first to seal in the juices so the chicken won't be so dry, and I will take about 1/2 cup of the gravy and melt the cream cheese with it before adding to the crock pot. Was not a favorite for any of my family.
