    What can I do if I don’t have a slow cooker?

  10. ebonygentleman79 January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    I make derivative of this, but never thought to add the cream cheese. I’ll
    try that next time. Good recipe!

  11. Bilal Ather January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Quick question derek! How do you divide the recipe into 12 pieces? do you
    weigh the chicken pieces before and make them 6oz each or what?

  12. ANALYZ GOMEZ January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Looks good, Im gonna try it. Thanks

  13. Eric Kollmansberger January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Can you eat this as part of a pre contest bodybuiding diet? From what you
    posted I can’t see why not… I’m looking for a change from a baked plain
    chicken breast.

  14. MaryMacRNY January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Looks delicious. Quick question, can I replace chicken breast with chicken
    thighs? Family like dark meat. Thanks and keep the recipes coming. :)

    Bought the same crock pot you used, the vanilla and chocolate protein
    powders, went through 10 videos i liked and bought tons and tons of
    ingredients in your recipes, and am now cooking this chicken! You have
    changed my life! You must be a cook in addition to a PT! 

  16. bisweetkat January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Looks so good. The food looks tasty to 😉 Subscribed!

  17. Nicole Williamson January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    kewl I just purchased a huge crockpot and was looking for healthy recipes
    since I’m trying to lose weight keep posting :)

  18. videoevidence08 January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Trying this tomorrow! I think I might use half the chicken, but keep the
    same amount of mushrooms and add some carrots too. Would it be smart to use
    half a can of cream of mushroom, half the cream cheese and half the water?
    I’ve been watching a lot of your vids lately and I had a feeling you were a
    new englander. Nice to see your from NH too! Keep making more awesome

    Ok, been watching your video’s for a few weeks now, but as I prep and
    freeze my meals, I am finally ready to make another 2 week batch of
    something, so going to try this recipe first. Only difference is I’m going
    to use boneless, skinless chicken thighs since I really like how much
    juicier dark meat is and I only use 4 oz. portions per serving. Also going
    to add a couple cups of broccoli in the last hour or two of cooking so they
    don’t get mushy… will let you know how it turns out. I already have my
    next 2 or 3 meals of yours picked out that I want to try next…

  20. Matt Grommesh January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Derek, I just tried this today and made 2 changes (out of necessity) I
    added 1/2 cup chopped green and red bell peppers, made a home made white
    sauce and added a little low sodium chicken stalk and doubled the
    mushrooms. (I call my kids mushroom thieves for a reason) It turned out
    fantastic! Just to make it a little more filling I also added a cup of
    brown rice and we ate it like soup. This will definitely go into the recipe
    box. Not much left with 2 hungry kids lol. Thanks!

  21. The Protein Chef January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Good luck with finals! 🙂

  22. The Protein Chef January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    I usually do! I just like having my pasta on the side that way I can
    determine how much pasta I’m actually eating.

  23. The Protein Chef January 2, 2015 at 2:17 am

    Thanks Kingpin! Appreciate it
