  1. Here's a recipe I found somewhere for Italian Chicken. I had pork one day but not chicken so I used that instead and it still came out good. 2 lbs. of pork or 6 chicken breast halves cut into bite size pieces. 1 cup of Italian salad dressing and 1/2 cup of parmesan cheese. Stir all in the crock and cook on low for 5 to 6 hours. Great with mashed potatoes.
  2. I'm kind of cracking up here at some of the people's comments about not wanting to be a jerk! I have made this recipe for 20 years for my family which was merely told to me by my friend. I wrote it down myself in my own words . . . Exactly the same as the above recipe! So, should they be giving me credit? I think not. Good job, Six Sister's Stuff. I'm glad I was able to find my recipe through you!
      • Its so sad that people have to make time to leave rude posts comments. If you didnt want to hurt someone you wouldn't say it. Cant wait to try the recipe today! Its so nice to let someone else do the thinking. Lots of times people end up having the exact same recipes and part of cooking is being free to change things to our own liking. It doesn't make anyone a genius. Grow up people. Thanks for the recipe :-)
  3. " Combine cream cheese and cream of chicken soup in a small post over low heat " I love your recipes and how fast and easy they are. being a mom to a 6,2, and newborn your recipes have helped so can spend more time with my children and chores. I quoted from your recipe due to I thought it was a funny quote and I thought it would bring a laugh to your day, I do have days like that.
  4. I added a bag of broccoli to this recipe and it was great! Also, I've put it on top of egg noodles, and then put the leftovers on top of a salad for a lighter option, the creamy italian makes for great salad dressing. Awesome lunch with the leftovers!
    • We have never had a problem with this recipe. Your slow cooker may be hotter on the low setting. You didn't say how long you cooked it for. We usually cook for about 4 hours on low. Some slow cookers take a little longer. When you figure out how your slow cooker works you can adjust accordingly.
