What's For Dinner? Creamy Italian Chicken

Part of my morning routine (thanks Flylady!) is asking "what's for dinner?" early in the day.  This is a recipe that I first found in a 5-ingredient slow cooker cookbook and it is one of our favorites.  Easy, and I usually have these ingredients on hand.

You need a package of chicken breasts, 3-4, and 1 packet of Italian Dressing Mix.  Put the chicken in the slow cooker on low.  Mix the dressing packet with 1/4 cup of water and pour over the chicken.  Cook for 3-4 hours on low or 2 hours on high.
After 3-4 hours, remove the chicken to a cutting board or plate and shred with forks.
Once shredded, put back in slow cooker with the liquid still in there.  Mix 1 package of cream cheese (softened) with 1 can of cream of chicken and mix in with shredded chicken.  Cook for another hour, then serve over rice or egg noodles.
You can find my version of this recipe here.


  1. Hey that looks yummy. Only ingredient I don't usually keep on hand is the seasoning. But it would be worth it to buy it to try it out. :)

  2. This looks yummy. I wonder if you need the packet or if you could just use the seasoning from the bottle. I love seasonings and this looks yummy and easy.
