Creamy Herb Chicken

When it comes to cooking during the week, there are nights when we really don’t want to do anything, when really all we can muster is picking up the phone to dial take-out, and I don’t like eating things that I have not prepared myself.  We came up with this filling recipe that only takes a few minutes and that anyone could tackle, even after a tiring day.

This creamy, herb chicken is really yummy, but the beauty of it is that it’s one package of spreadable cheese that makes up the heart of the dish. Instead of laboring over a finicky cheese sauce, you can melt this one down and be good to go! The flavor’s great – although we added even more herbs to really punch up the flavor – and this finished result goes perfectly with pasta, rice, or veggies. Monday night just got a whole lot better…try it out and see for yourself!
