I can't remember where I got this recipe or when - I have made it several times with white rice, wild rice and with pasta. It is always a winner no matter what you serve it with - even mashed potatoes.

How to Make Cream Cheese Chicken

Step-by-Step

  1. Cook and stir bacon in a large skillet on medium heat for 5 minutes or so until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet to drain on paper towels. Discard most of the drippings from the skillet.
  2. Add the chicken to skillet and cook for 5 - 6 minutes on each side or until golden brown on both sides. Transfer the chicken to a covered plate to keep warm. Add the vegetables and 1/2 cup of the broth to skillet; cover and simmer for 10 minutes or until the vegetables are tender.
  3. Stir in the remaining broth and add the cream cheese. Cook uncovered for about 2 minutes or until the cream cheese is melted and sauce has thickened, stirring frequently. Return the chicken to the skillet; cook another few minutes until all is bubbly. Spoon over rice, pasta or mashed potatoes, top with sauce and bacon. Enjoy!!
