  • 1 tablespoon onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1/2 teaspoon dill
  • 1/2 teaspoon pepper

  • 8oz cream cheese (not needed until day of cooking)


  1. Add all ingredients to crockpot and cook on “low” setting for 4-6 hours.
  2. Shred chicken and return to crockpot with cream cheese.
  3. Cook additional 5-10 minutes or until cream cheese warms and starts to melt.  Mix everything in crockpot.

To Freeze and Cook Later

Label a gallon-sized plastic freezer bag with the name of the recipe, cooking instructions, and use-by date.  Add all ingredients except cream cheese and remove as much air as possible.  Seal and freeze for up to three months.
