Very similair to a chipotle chicken I have been making for several years. If you really like to cook with chipotles here's a hint. Puree a can or two of chipotles in adobo. Put in a jar keep refrigerated & then you can call it "chipotle paste". I add a spoonful to broth when making soups. Also use this same recipe and instead of chipotles use a basil pesto sauce. Excellent over linguine or fettucine. Read More

This is a nice flavorful and easy crock pot recipe. I made this as is but put my chicken breast in frozen. It came out great:) I cooked this on low and it was done in my slow cooker after only 4 hours. The chicken was moist and the sauce is nice and creamy with a smoky kick. I served this over rice with a side of broccoli. I will be making this again. Read More

Ok so I only made 3 changes to this recipe (that is a MAJOR accomplishment for me). The first being that I didn't use the butter (I didn't think it was necessary with the richness of the other ingredients) added a can of mushrooms and I added slivered onions for the last 40 minutes of cooking. I increased the broth to 3/4 cup to make up for the loss in liquid. I also solved the issue some people had with the "chunky" sauce without having to pre-heat all the sauce ingredients. I heated my broth in the microwave for about a minute. I then added the cream cheese chunks and cooked at 20 second intervals until it softened somewhat. I then put the broth/cream cheese soup and peppers in the blender and hit pulse until it was blended and creamy. The sauce went into the crockpot with the frozen chicken breasts and a small can of sliced mushrooms (drained) and was done about 40 minutes later. We served it over rice and it was a hit! Thanks for the recipe:) I know this recipe would have been just as great as written but we're trying to cook a little healthier. Read More

This is a nice recipe but it will need some work. Next time I'll warm up the cream soup broth adobo sauce and butter in a saucepan on medium heat then whisk in the cream cheese until it's thoroughly blended. Then I'll put the remaining ingredients in the slow cooker and pour the sauce over it all. Something is still off though. Maybe it needs something strong but light to balance the heaviness of the smoke and the richness of the cream cheese; I'm thinking fresh ground coriander seed. Definitely needs chopped cilantro and onions at the table to perk it up. Read More

Love it... tasty and moist. I did alter the recipe by using what I had on hand. Substituted cream of chicken with cream of mushroom and the chipolte pepper with jarred roasted red peppers. Mild smokey flavor not spicy if you don't like hot spice try it with the roasted red peppers. Delish! Read More

I hardly ever give a recipe 5 stars but this is one of the exceptions. My family thought it was a bit spicy but I loved it so the heck with them...:) Read More

This was fabulous. I didn't want to wait til the next day to make it in the slow cooker so I cut up the chicken and pan seared it. Then followed the directions. I let it cook in the sauce for about 20 minutes and served it over rice. This was definitely restaurant quality thank you for sharing! Read More

Absolutely excellent! The chicken was extremely moist and flavorful the sauce was perfectly creamy with a definite kick. I made it exactly as it was written and my VERY picky boyfriend piped up right away saying to put this recipe in the "keep" pile. Will definitely make it again. Read More

EXCELLENT! Only made minor changes: added 1 can of roasted diced tomatoes and ommited the chicken stock due to the extra liquid in canned tomatoes. Added sauteed thinly sliced onions red pepper green pepper and poblano peppers to last 45 minutes of cooking. Served over cilantro rice completed the "Mexican" flavors of this dish. Read More
