- Cream of chicken soup (if you don’t want to use canned, you can try this recipe).
- Cream cheese
- Zesty Italian Salad Dressing Mix
- Chicken breasts (you can use fresh or frozen – we’ve used both and either works fine!)
- Rotini pasta (you could also serve it over Penne pasta, Bow Tie pasta, rice, or mashed potatoes)
How to make Slow Cooker Italian Chicken
- Place chicken in a slow cooker and sprinkle Italian dressing mix over top. If you use a slow cooker liner, it makes for an even easier clean up. You can use fresh or frozen chicken breasts.
- Combine cream cheese and cream of chicken soup in a small bowl and whisk until smooth and spoon over chicken.
- Cook on low 4-6 hours. We would recommend cooking it on 4 hours on low if you’re using fresh chicken, or 6 hours on low if you’re using frozen.
- Once chicken is done, remove from the slow cooker and shred with 2 forks. Return to slow cooker and mix in with the rest of the sauce before serving. You can also easily shred the chicken in a stand mixer really quickly.
- Serve chicken over cooked pasta, rice, or mashed potatoes. We love to garnish this with shredded parmesan cheese and chopped fresh parsley.
