This Crockpot Italian Chicken is one of my family favorites. Everything is thrown in the slow cooker for an easy, creamy, tasty dinner.
This Crockpot Italian Chicken is tender and topped with a creamy Italian flavored dressing. Serve over pasta or rice!
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.
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.
Crockpot Italian Chicken
1packet dry Zesty Italian dressing(Regular is fine but I like zesty better. Sometimes I use a packet and a half.)
1 8ouncepackage cream cheesesoftened
1-2cans cream of chicken soup(depending how cream cheesy you want it)
Place the chicken in a crockpot and sprinkle Italian dressing over it. Combine cream cheese and cream of chicken soup in a small pot over low heat and pour over chicken. Cook on low in the crockpot for at least 4 hours. You can leave it in there all day. Once chicken is done you can leave the chicken breasts whole, cube it, or even shred it. I always cut the breasts into tenderloin size strips.
Once you have cut up the chicken, throw it back in the crockpot and stir into the sauce. If you feel the sauce is too thick you can thin it to your preferred consistency with a little milk. Serve over pasta or rice.
