Cream Cheese Chicken (no picture :( )

This sounded very good and it was low carb. I needed something healthy, easy, and delicious!

I did make a few changes…I left the sauce a bit thinner rather than thicker, I used regular cream cheese, crushed red pepper (only enough for taste), cut the chicken into thick strips.

The recipe was very easy, smelled great, and was very good. The thinner sauce allowed us the flavor but not all the extra fat since we used less on our plates!

I served it with steamed broccoli, salad with cucumbers, tomatoes, dried cherries, and sliced almonds. The meal was very good, thanks to Brown Eyed Chef for the great recipe!
