Creamy Lemon Chicken

We had this at an Enrichment meeting (church women's function) recently and it was a hit so we all got the recipe and I made it for my family. It's a slow cooker meal, so very easy, but also very flavorful. Love the lemon zest in it. But it is hard to take an appealing photo of something this color.
Creamy Lemon Chicken

2 lb. frozen chicken tenders
1 small onion, cut into small wedges
½ t. garlic powder
½ t. pepper
1 large can low-sodium chicken broth
1 (8-oz.) pkg. low fat cream cheese
Zest & juice from one lemon
2 c. fresh mushrooms

Place chicken, onion, seasonings and broth into crock pot on low for 6 hours.  In the 5th hour, cube the cream cheese and add it into the crock pot with the lemon peel, juice and mushrooms to cook for the last hour.

    1. Jill, I didn't realize the recipe wasn't specific until I was making it. I added 2 14-oz. cans of broth, but the chicken was a bit too watery for me. I will just add one 14-oz. can next time.
