This creamy Italian chicken is made in the crockpot with just 4 simple ingredients. A family favorite meal that’s perfect for busy weeknights.
This is one of the easiest dinner recipes out there! It’s so simple to throw together and the crockpot does all the work for you. It’s one of my favorite meals for busy weeknights, along with Hawaiian haystacks, slow cooker chicken tacos and parmesan ranch chicken.
Crockpot Italian chicken is one of my all-time favorite meals! My aunt gave this recipe to me when I was first married and we have been making it ever since. It is SO delicious and super easy to make.
This dish is one of those super easy “forget and go” meals! You literally add everything to the crockpot and that’s it! Then dinner is ready a few hours later. So quick and easy! We love to serve it over cooked noodles or rice and add some fresh parsley on top.
4 simple ingredients
Cream of chicken soup: The cream of chicken soup helps to give this recipe it’s creamy consistency. I like to use a can from the store for convenience, but you can always make your own too. Check out this homemade recipe.
Cream cheese: You’ll just need 1 block of cream cheese. I like to cube mine up before adding it to the crockpot. This helps it melt evenly and not get lumpy.
Italian dressing mix: Make sure to get the dry Italian dressing mix packet! I like to use Good Seasons Italian dressing mix.
Chicken breasts: Boneless, skinless chicken breasts work best for this recipe. I used 4 chicken breasts, which is about 1 1/2 pounds.
