Neufchatel cheese, any subs?

I have this yummy recipe I want to try but it calls for that cheese. I went to the stores in my town none of them carry it and they have no idea what it even is.
Is there a substitute I can use for this or is this pretty much a no sub cheese.
The recipe is a chicken and red pot combo.
Thanks so much!

It is a cream cheese. Your store had no cream cheese?

You can use cream cheese in place of the neufchatel.

Yep. Cream cheese.

Neufchatel is a cheese of french origin that is very similar to cream cheese but is lower in calories and tastes somewhat different because it's made from milk and not cream.

You might want to sub a lighter cream cheese for it, but reg cream cheese should work fine.

If you read the label on a package of Philadelphia brand 1/3 less fat cream cheese, it tells you it's Neufchatel!
