Cream Cheese Chicken

I saw this recipe at browneyedchef.blogspot.com. It’s been in my Google Reader for awhile and I wanted to use of some chicken breasts that we had in the freezer. The chicken turned out really good but I think I’ll use a little more wine next time to keep the sauce from getting too thick. The recipe listed below is as I made it. You find the original here.
