More About This Recipe

  • My slow cooker is on overload now that summer is here. I just can’t bare to turn on the oven and heat up the house. This Slow Cooker Italian Chicken is a family favorite in our house, especially with my oldest son. He requests this meal for his birthday every year. It’s a meal I know the whole family will eat without complaint, and those are hard to find. We refer to this as “Batman Pasta” in our house because we serve it over bow-tie pasta that my kids think look like Batman. This meal comes together quickly with just a few ingredients thrown into the slow cooker. It’s definitely one of those staple meals that you will frequently go back to. Dry Italian dressing is used to season the chicken and give it a zesty kick. The cream cheese sauce is great served over rice or pasta. The simple ingredients combined together smell amazing when cooking all day. Serve this with warm garlic bread and a garden salad to make this meal complete. Oh and the leftovers are great – not that you will have any!
