Philly Cream Cheese Chicken Over Rice

I am a member of the Collective Bias® Social Fabric® Community. This shop has been compensated as part of a social shopper insights study for Collective Bias and their client.

I'm a big fan of simple meals using ingredients that are almost always in the house and easy to work with. Philadelphia Cream Cheese is an ingredient I love working with because of it's versatility. You can use it in appetizers, entrees, and desserts. It also makes a delicious snack on it's own.

Philly Cream Cheese Chicken Over Rice #shop #SaveOnPhilly #cbias

My mom used to make this cream cheese chicken recipe for our family growing up, and I wanted to start making it for my own family. It can be made in less than 30 minutes, and you can adjust the recipe to feed yourself or a big group. This recipe can also be prepared in the stove top or slow cooker, so it's simple for everyone!

2 cans cream of mushroom or chicken soup
1 packet Italian Dressing Mix
2 cups cooked chicken breast or tenderloins, cut into bite-sized pieces
1/4 cup milk (or less, as needed)
2-3 cups cooked Minute rice

Directions (Stove Top):
  1. Cook 6-7 chicken tenderloins or 4 chicken breasts. Cut into bite-sized pieces. Set aside.
  2. Boil water for Minute rice while the chicken cooks. Follow package directions for rice cook time.
  3. In a saucepan, mix together cream cheese, cream soups, and Italian seasoning. Stir constantly over medium heat. If too thick, stir in a little bit of milk until the sauce is a medium-thick consistency.
  4. Add chicken to sauce, and stir well.
  5. Serve over rice.

Directions (Slow Cooker):
  1. Add cream cheese, cream soups, and Italian seasoning to slow cooker and mix together.
  2. Add 6-7 chicken tenders or 4 chicken breasts (either whole frozen, or cut into pieces) to sauce mixture.
  3. Cook on low for 4-6 hours.
  4. Stir sauce well to make sure all ingredients are combined.
  5. Serve over rice.

  4. My husband makes something similar to this. We'll have to try it!

  5. Do you mean Italian dressing mix or Italian seasoning that would go in spaghetti?

  6. Love that there is a slow cooker option - this is great for the hectic-mama life! :) Looks yummy!

  7. MMMMM I'm going to be trying the slow cooker option out here soon since the craziness of back to school has started! Thanks, Lindsay!

  8. This is sitting in my slow cooker right now, but it strikes me as a bit odd that someone would just sit there and eat a thing of cream cheese (first paragraph). Anyway, I'm really excited for how it comes out! :)
