Creamy Herbed Chicken

"I'm a nurse and work nights, so when I get home in the morning, I put this chicken on to cook," says Mary Humeniuk-Smith of Perry Hall, Maryland. "At the end of the day, the chicken is moist and tender, and the rich sauce seasoned with garlic and thyme is delicious."

    If i had to give it a star for how easy this was it would be a five! This was a total snap to put together, it was a little on the salty side for me but that won't stop me from making it again. Things I would change is maybe not use a pre-made herb and garlic pasta mix. Just stick with the spices you know your family loves. In the last hour you could toss in a bad of mixed veggies too! Chicken was perfectly moist, I shredded mine over the noodles.

    My husband liked this a lot. Said it had good flavor, and the chicken was very tender. I used the Knorr seasoning, and I didn't think it was too salty. This is a good, easy dinner, and I'll make it again!

    Made it tonight. Chicken was very tender. I actually did not use the Knorr seasoning because I couldn't find it... so I used a little of the following: fresh chopped oregano, dried thyme, crushed rosemary, garlic powder and a little McCormick Montreal Chicken Seasoning...... and it had a great flavor - not overpowering and far from bland. I'm so glad I didn't use the Knorr seasoning since a lot of reviews says it made it too salty. I served it over buttered fettuccini noodles.

    Ingredients on hand and a quick chicken crockpot recipe, but it was just so-so.

    Really easy to prep and throw in the crock pot and was very delicious. I used a homemade version of canned soup so I didn't get the saltiness that others did. I am looking forward to trying this again with some of the recipe changes/suggestions from the other reviewers!!!

    I used low sodium Cream of Chicken soup and did add some saute onions other than that it was EXCELLENT!!! I am making it again tonight. I think you could add what ever seasoning you would like and it would be fantastic!

    Too salty? Skip the sauce mix! Use regular cream of chicken, and reduce the milk to 3/4 cup. Stir in one tablespoon prepared pesto! Also, a pinch of poultry seasoning will omit the thyme. Must try topped with Parmesan cheese.
