  1. I’ve re-read this recipe twice & also failed to see cream cheese mixture. What I might try is a teaspoon of Italian Seasonings mixed into cheese & see how that works.

  2. I found the original recipe and it is identical but just says “softened cream cheese” instead of “cream cheese mixture”.

  3. I made this last night and it was really good. I used boneless, skinless thighs instead of breasts. I didn’t mix the cream cheese with anything I just spread it on. Everyone loved this dish! Will definitely be making this again!!

  4. I used about as cup of soft chive cream cheese, and mixed in the spices! I always change a recipe a bit to make it my own! Never follow it exactly! ✌🏼

  5. I’m wondering if you could use the whipped cream cheese with chives you find in the cream cheese section for bagels instead of the plain cream cheese. Not sure how that cooks up, any one know.
