This may look plain from the photo. (White food is hard to photograph…without adding garnishes…that I decided not to add for this one.) This may look simple. What is hard to see in the photo is the amazing amount of flavor loaded into the sauce and soaked into the chicken.
Cream of mushroom + Ranch dressing mix + garlic (as much as you like!)…then thicken the creamy sauce with cream cheese.
Really, it’s fabulous!
Perfect over rice or egg noodles. Would also be a great base for some “cream cheese chicken enchiladas” too. Add to corn tortillas, then pour green enchilada over the top, then top with pepperjack or Monterrey jack cheese.
(Now, I’m making myself drool.)
Seriously, so rich and delicious!
