Plain baked chicken breasts are simple, easy, and get the job done for dinner, but you deserve so much more. You deserve a dinner that's rich, saucy, and packed with savory flavor that keeps you going back for more. Whether you make it in a slow cooker, on the stovetop, or in a casserole, anytime you slot a creamy chicken dinner into your meal plan, it'll be a meal to remember.

Just be sure to serve it with bread, pasta, rice, or couscous to mop up all that delicious creamy sauce on your plate.

1. Slow Cooker Creamy French Mustard Chicken

3. Chicken and Biscuit Casserole

Since this recipe starts with cooked shredded chicken (or a rotisserie bird), it's totally doable on a weeknight. If you have time, the cream biscuits are a breeze to pull together; otherwise stick with a tube of buttermilk biscuits. You can't go wrong either way!

4. Creamy Parmesan Garlic Mushroom Chicken
