What You Need

8

2
 onions, cut lengthwise in half, then sliced crosswise
1/3
cup  flour
1/2
tsp.  pepper
1-1/4
cups  fat-free reduced-sodium chicken broth
8
 bone-in skinless chicken thighs (2-1/2 lb.)

tub  (8 oz.) PHILADELPHIA Cream Cheese Spread
2
Tbsp.  milk
1/2

Make It

COOK and stir bacon in large skillet on medium heat until crisp. Remove bacon from skillet with slotted spoon; drain on paper towels. Drain all but 2 Tbsp. drippings from skillet. Add onions to reserved drippings; cook 15 to 18 min. or until golden brown, stirring occasionally and adding flour, pepper and half the bacon to skillet for the last minute. Whisk in broth until blended. (Onion mixture will be thick.)

ADD chicken to slow cooker; cover with onion mixture. Cook on LOW 4 to 5 hours (or on HIGH 2 to 3 hours). About 15 min. before ready to serve, cook noodles as directed on package, omitting salt.

DRAIN noodles; place on platter. Top with chicken, reserving onion mixture in slow cooker. Mix cream cheese spread, milk and garlic powder until blended. Add to onion mixture; mix well. Spoon over chicken; top with parsley and remaining bacon.

Kraft Kitchens Tips

Serving Suggestion
Serve with hot steamed green beans.
How to Safely Store Bacon
Store unopened packages of bacon in the refrigerator until the “Use by Date” stamped on the package. Once opened, wrap tightly and refrigerate up to 1 week. To freeze bacon, wrap the unopened, vacuum-sealed package tightly in freezer-safe material, then freeze up to 1 month. Thaw in refrigerator before using.
