Crockpot Italian Chicken

I'm sure you've all got this Crockpot Italian Chicken pinned on Pinterest and some of you may have even tried it already! 



This is one my favorite recipes that I've tried from Pinterest so I have to share! 

{The original recipe came from here}

Here's what you'll need: 

4 chicken breasts
1 packet dry Zesty Italian dressing 
1 (8 oz) package cream cheese, softened
1-2 cans cream of chicken soup (depending how cream cheesy you want it)


Here's what you do: 

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 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. 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.


Special notes from me:

I just use 1 can of cream of chicken soup and it turns out perfectly. 
I shred the chicken instead of cubing or cutting.
I serve over egg noodles.






This is not a healthy recipe at all so we have to limit making it to every couple of weeks, but we love it! If there were a healthy option, we'd probably have it on a weekly basis! 


Have you tried this recipe??

I don't think it would be so unhealthy if you used the 1/3 less fat cream cheese and the 99% fat free soup. ;) I'm going to give it a try, thanks!

This is all over Pinterest! I tried it with reduced fat ingredients, but I thought it was too salty, and the sodium count was through the roof. Like a whole day's worth in one serving.

I havent heard of this, so thanks for sharing! Looks like something my husband and I would love! The addition of noodles makes it look even better!

Looks so yum! Totally trying this soon! Last night I didn't have hardly anything in the house to cook so I baked some chicken with cream of mushroom soup, dry italian dressing, and reduced fat cream cheese. Covered with foil and baked it for about 30 minutes. I served it over spaghetti squash and it was yum! I guess it is also a healthier way to eat it.
