This deliciously moist chicken is a longtime favorite with family and friends of Darolyn Jones in Fishers, Indiana. "It’s so easy, comforting and rich." she says.

"First, this recipe is great IF YOU FOLLOW IT exactly. If you change the recipe at all it becomes your own recipe, not this recipe. I feel that if you change the recipe and make it your own, you should not then give it a low rating as you are really only rating your own recipe, not this one. That said, I made this recipe exactly as is and cooked it for 4 hours. She suggested 4 to 5 hrs so I checked it at 4 hrs and the chicken was perfectly cooked and moist. The cubed cream cheese melted perfectly into the gravy and really added a punch of flavor. The gravy was a perfect consistency. Thank you for a well rounded and easy recipe and one my family and I will enjoy for years to come!"

"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."

"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."

"My family loved this recipe. I did have to change it a little. The store did not have any mushroom gravy so I substituted chicken gravy. I also used chicken thighs instead of breast. I cooked on high for about 5 hours. The chicken feel off the bones. I added a little cornstarch to thicken. The only problem was that the cream cheese never seemed to melt all the way. I don't know that it added to the taste of the gravy that much so I'll probably just skip that next time."

"This was really good! I used fat-free ingredients and it was tasty. The only problem I had with it was that there was SO much gravy left over that a lot of it went to waste. However, I would make this again!"

"I thought this was very good, and easy. I forgot to add the milk at the beginning, but the sauce still turned out very rich and delicious. I used reduced fat cream cheese, and although it took quite a bit more stirring to get it to completely melt into the sauce, it was very good. Every bit got eaten."

"I liked this recipe. My husband is very picky eater. He loved the gravy but didn't care much for the chicken itself. Every single time I make a chicken dish in the crock pot though we don't really care for the chicken. It just isn't moist. But overall we liked it and I will make it again."

"This tasted good, looked a little off to me. I probably won't make this again, as I have other chicken mushroom recipes I like better.

This sauce reminded me of beef stroganoff sauce."
