White Chicken Chili!

This is a great, comforting snowy evening kind of meal!  I adapted the recipe from here:  I didn't have some of the ingredients so  I had to make this recipe with what I had and it was GREAT!  Actually, quote my kids, "MMMMMMM, this is scrumptious." I served this with shredded cheese, green onions and cheese quesadillas.  Here is my adaption:
White Chicken Chili
2 Boneless, skinless chicken breast - frozen
16 oz. Chicken Broth
1 Tbsp. Dried, minced onion
1 1/2 tsp. Garlic powder
1 Can pinto beans, drained/rinsed
1 Can Light red kidney beans, drained/rinsed
1 tsp. Cumin
1 tsp. Oregano
1/2 tsp. Chili powder
1 (8oz) block of light cream cheese
DIRECTIONS:  Place chicken breast in crockpot.  Add chicken broth, beans and seasonings (do not add cream cheese yet).  Cover and cook on low for 6-8 hours.  Remove chicken and shred.  Add shredded chicken back to broth.  Stir in cream cheese and cover.  Heat for another 30 minutes or until cream cheese is melted and soup is hot.
