    We loved this! My stores aren't carrying cooking cream either (don't know why) so used onion/chive spread w/ chick stocked add to thin it out and used breast; also baked it in the oven instead of slow cooker. Flavor was GREAT!

    This recipe is Delicious! The flavor is fantastic!!! It was a HUGE hit with my family. Even my picky eater loved it. My husband already asked me to make it again and I just made it a couple of days ago, he said it is "Craveable". This is a keeper for my recipe book! Thanks Food and Family for another great recipe!

    Kind of bland. I added chopped garlic and did not have the cooking cream so used onion and chive creamed cheese. It still needs something more. The flavor is good but still bland. It is missing a kick that it really needs. I would add some more herbs and spices to it.
