Daily Crock Pot Recipe! (Cream Cheese Chicken with Broccoli)
I know, I know.....part of this is cooked on the stovetop which kind of defeats the purpose of the slow cooker. So, this would be more of a Sunday dinner. You can put the chicken on and go run some errands for a few hours, come home and finish out the meal later.
