I am not the biggest fan of cream cheese but with the sales, this time of year I have been picking up a lot of cream cheese. I have been pairing up the sale price with Ibotta rebates to save more. I have to say this recipe has me finding new ways to cook with cream cheese.

Now I have several crockpots and love them. I have them in all sizes and they all serve their use. Not sure what size crockpot to buy? Check out my guide-> here on what size is best for your family.
Cream Cheese Chicken Crock Pot Ingredients:
- Cream Cheese– You can allow this to soften to room temperature and even cut up into smaller cubes to put in the crockpot.
- Italian dressing seasoning
- Chicken Breast– I use boneless skinless chicken breasts, other cuts of boneless meat will work but dark meat will be greaser.
- Cream of Chicken

How To Make Cream Cheese Chicken Crock Pot
Spray your crockpot with nonstick spray. *I doubled the recipe this time to make a bigger batch in my 8-quart crockpot. If you don’t want to spray you can use a crockpot liner for easy cleanup.

Place your chicken breasts into the bottom of the crockpot.
Place cream cheese and cream of chicken on top of the chicken breasts.
Sprinkle a packet of Italian dressing seasoning over the ingredients.
Cook on low for 6-8 hours. You can stir occasionally to make sure it is well mixed together.

This may sound stupid, but cooked chicken breasts or raw? I know some people are afraid to leave raw chicken to slow cook so wasn’t sure…
I do raw, I know some people even do frozen. Just be sure to use a food thermometer to test the temperature and you are good to go.
What size cream cheese? 4oz. Or 8oz.
It is 8. I’ve made this 30 times. Lol. Family and friend favorite! Great to put together in a ziplock as a freezer meal for a sick friend.
Does the cream cheese not split? I’ve tried something similar before and it’s always split!
I’m not sure what you mean by split, but I actually toss the cream cheese into the warm crock for a few then stir the soup and seasonings well and put chicken on top. It needs a good fork stir, breaking up and unmixed chunks of cream cheese, but it’s always been creamy and delicious for me.

How many chicken breasts? 4 6 8?
Wanda Schneider says
I noticed there was no reply about how many chicken breast. they did to be more specific on ingredients
Susan G says
With 8 oz of cream cheese, I’m going to guess at least 4 chicken breasts. Looks like this makes a lot of “gravy” so maybe even 6. But I’d try four the first time.
I too would like to know how many chicken breasts to use with this.
How many chicken breast to use?
I make this all the time . Becareful how long you cook it. I use the frozen chicken breast from Costco that I thaw and it is fully cooked in 3 hours on LOW. Not the 6-8 hours.
Do u add water to the cream ofchicken
I have a recipe similar to this and it’s one of our favorites.

How smart to post this recipe at this time of year. Most people think that crock pots are only for winter, but they are actually wonderful for the summer because they generate so little heat and use little energy. Much better than cranking up the oven in the house you are paying to cool down, right?
I had something very similar to this at a friends house. It’s delicious.
I was not very great. I had to eat it with chips because the taste was too smooth.
This looks so yummy! I love recipes that have few ingredients, too. So great for us busy folks. Thanks so much for sharing 🙂

Sounds delicious! Cream cheese just seems to make any dish taste better! Thanks for sharing! Blessings, Janet
crock pot comfort food! this looks delicious!
Can the chicken cook on high for 3 hrs?
Can I cook chicken on high for 3 hours instead of low for 6 hours ?
Wow – so simple but sounds so good!
Check the nutrition. Thus recepie has way too much salt!
I never saw how many chicken breast ? 2
I used three large ones. If I make it in my big crock pot I double all the ingredients. Hope that helps!
Tried this with instant Ranch dressing. Serve with noodles, also very yummy! 😋
I also made it with ranch dressing and it was delicious !
Can I use something besides cream of chicken soup? How about sour cream?? I am not a fan of using cream-of soups! Thanks so much!!
