CROCKPOT ITALIAN CHICKEN

I know, I know…everyone has this Crockpot Italian Chicken recipe but on the off chance that you don’t you must add it to your repertoire. Besides my favorite Baked Ziti, this meal is the next most requested.
 
 
I had my beautiful baby boy Weston and have been very busy.
 
Although I’m not back to cooking, I made a few things before I had the baby that I hadn’t posted yet. This is Austin’s favorite meal and I wanted to make it for him before I had the baby. We call it “Batman Pasta” because of the bowtie pasta and it makes my kids excited to eat it.
 
 
I prefer it with rice but pasta is good too. It’s super easy…a perfect throw-in-the -crockpot-while-you-are-at-church-on-Sunday meal.
 
 
You can do it with whole chicken breasts, cube it, or even shred it. I always cut the breasts into tenderloin size strips.

The sauce is thick but you can definitely thin it out with a little milk to your desired consistency.

Ingredients

  • 4 boneless skinless chicken breasts or thighs

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken in a crockpot and pour cream of chicken soup on top. Sprinkle dry Italian dressing mix on top. Top with cubed cream cheese.

  2. Cook on low in the crockpot for at least 4-6 hours. Once chicken is done you can remove it from the crockpot and shred it with two forks or a hand mixer. Stir the sauce in the crockpot and then stir in the chicken.
