  2. Madison

    This looks delicious! Totally going on our menu this week, especially since we just bought about a billion chicken tenderloins at Sam's Club yesterday. :)

  3. Kim

    This looks awesome, I am going to have to try it out! Thanks for the follow, I am following oyu back!

  4. Antonella

    this looks yummy! I think I will have to give this a try... I am always afraid to leave my crock pot unattended (you never know if I might have to work late... and then anything can happen)...
    Love your recipes!
    Antonella :-)

    Used my crock pot yesterday to make pot roast. I feel you.

  6. Beansieleigh

    Oh, I LOVE my crock pot, and I'll definitely be trying this recipe out! Thanks for sharing it, and hope you're enjoying your Labor Day Weekend! ~tina

  7. Tabitha Lynn

    Amazing, looks delish. Think it'd be good over gnocci?

  8. Victoria

    I'm making this, thickening it up a little and putting it as the filling of a chicken and mushroom pie tonight :) Can't wait to see how it goes. x

  9. Jerri

    This looks great! I love meals like this. I've never bought italian dressing seasoning. Is it found in the section with the salad dressings or somewhere else?

  10. June Scott

    Perfect timing, Nikki! I tried a chicken crock pot recipe last week that just didn't quite do it for us, if you know what I mean... I was trying to decide how to tweak it... this recipe will do the trick, I think! Thanks for sharing!

  11. Jenn

    Totally making this this week. It looks so yummy! Thanks for sharing the recipe!

  12. Chef in Training

    @Jerri Yes, it is by the dressings, it's in a packet. You can use either the regular or zesty flavor!

  13. Kara @ Mine for the Making

    Featuring this on my facebook page today :)

    I just cooked this today and it was soooo good!

  15. E-

    How much Italian seasoning do you use? I have plenty of home- so no need to buy the packet- just curious how much you add!

  16. AmyLeighBrandon

    Made this for the hubs the other night, and his face lit up on the first bite as he said 'holy crap! that's good!'.. he even licked the spoon and said 'it's so good! like ice cream!'.. i'll be making this again!

    I've made a variation of this before over bowtie pasta and it is soooo good! When making this the first time, before adding the sour cream or soups or anything, I placed cubed chicken in my crock pot with butter and the pk of Italian dressing mix and let it cook about 4 hrs on low. This by itself is amazing, so I've made this several different times using chicken breast halves. Both ways are delicious!

    How big of a can of cream of chicken? Small can or large family size can?

  19. Becky

    This is so tasty! One of my favorite recipes! You can also use Ranch packets to! We love both!!!

  20. Janeal

    I wanted to make this so bad, but I didn't have cream of chicken or an italian seasoning packet. I used cream of mushroom and 1/4 bottle italian dressing, and it was SO GOOD. I saved some extra sauce to eat just over rice, and I couldn't stop licking the spoon.

  21. Meghan

    This was so yummy. I thought it was a bit salty though- I'm guessing from the Italian mix. I think next time I will use low sodium cream of chicken. My husband and I really enjoyed this over rice!

  22. Emily

    This was delicious- I pinned it on pinterest yesterday and already over 100 people have repinned it- thanks for the great crock pot meals! :)

    Just a hint for those who might be afraid to leave their crock on in case they work late (and dont have the fancy kind with the timers to auto-turn off...) I put my crock on an outlet timer (like I use for my christmas tree). My crock just has the hard switch that turns to warm, low or high, so I leave that set on low, and the timer is set to turn on around noon, and off around 5, in case I'm not home one time.

    Have this in the crockpot right now--noticed I had bought already seasoned chicken breasts so I just used the cream chicken soup and cream cheese--can't wait for supper!!!

    Omg! I cannot believe I have never thought of this!! I'm not home to turn the crockpot on in the afternoon but this will do it! Thanks so much, you've changed life in our house!

    THis was a wonderful recipe!! My family loved it. i was hoping for leftovers for lunch at work..but they ate it all!! Taking it Saturday to a friend that had surgery! thanks

    I made this recipe tonight for dinner & it was AMAZING!! I used the chicken tenders a large size package and followed the recipe exactly. I dumped it all directly over the chicken in the crock pot and it spreads out nicely and cooks amazing, you may think there's not enough sauce but it works out perfectly! I served it over the bowtie pasta. When my bowtie pasta was done I stirred it into the chicken in the pressure cooker and mixed it all up and it was heavenly! You gotta try this recipe! So easy & very cheap. Only cost me like 10.00 to make a large amount of it.

    I meant to write "slow cooker" and not pressure cooker :)My typo sorry :-P

    Could I cook this on low instead of high? Wonder how long it'd take to cook on low? Anyone know?

  32. Anonymous

    Because of my work schedule I need an 8 hour crock pot recipe. Would this work on low in stead of high?

  33. Anonymous

    The best way to make this recipe is to start with the soup, butter, chicken, and Italian seasoning and let those cook together for about 6-7 hours on low. Then when the chicken is ready to fall apart, take the chicken out and shred. Then put the block of cream cheese in and let it melt. On high, it melts in 30 minutes. Then put the shredded chicken back in and serve over pasta or rice. This is so easy and so delicious!!

    Put your crockpot on a timer! One of those you plug in and then plug the crockpot into (I have my coffee pot on one) - and walla no more worries.

  35. aussiecatgirl

    I am trying this today and was wondering how much chicken to use in pounds? I am using tenderloins. Also, is it the 10.5 oz can of soup? Finally, what size Italian dressing packet? I have the .7oz packets.Thanks for your help! Laura

    Just made this tonight! It was YUMMY!!! I made it for my grandma who just had surgery. I used a whole bag of frozen chicken breast, 1 can of cream of celery(what I had on hand), 1 block of low fat cream cheese,a packet and half of italian dressing seasoning, and a 1/2 cup of italian dressing. The sauce was a little watery but VERY tasty!!!

  37. Margot Driver

    Is it normal for the outskirts of the dressings to burn a little? Makes me wonder if I should put it on low.

  38. emily usukhbayar

    Will be trying this but would love to know approximately how many people this feeds... want to make sure i have left overs for lunches :)

  39. yoleine

    This came out AMAZING!! Kids loved it!! And the chicken stayed juicy as I have a problem with that when using the crock pot! This will be a regular at home :)

  40. Jessica

    I really want to try this but what is Italian seasoning dressing? Is it Italian salad dressing? And what is one package?

  41. Allyson

    I am cooking this now, and my sauce is very thick.. is this normal. there isnt a whole lot of it.. and do i shred the chicken into peices?

  42. Caren

    I found this recipe on Pinterest and I am making it right now. It looks so good!

  43. nicole

    This was fantastic! I did, however, change up the recipe a bit. I added the very large can of cream of chicken soup, instead of the small can, for additional "sauce". I also only added a 1/4 of zesty italian packet, but then added garlic and herb Mrs. Dash, and original Mrs. Dash... about a tablespoon each. Cracked black pepper to taste, and shredded mozzarella close to the finish time for added cheesy-ness! This was an absolute HIT at my house! :)

  44. nicole

    OH, and I also cooked on LOW for 4 hours... PLENTY of time, and the chicken was done and juicy! I shredded my chicken (into medium size chunks), in the crockpot, before serving. Next time I make this, I will be adding broccoli florets!

  45. Tiffany

    We made this tonight. It looks absolutely delicious. I am a major cream of chicken soup cooker. Yet i have to say, WAY too salty for us. I dont know why but we didnt enjoy it one bit. I wish i could say different :/

  46. Nancy

    I'm from Germany and hubby just retired from the NAVY after 20 years.
    I found your website on Pinterest. I made this Chicken in our Crockpot and it was just soooooooo delicious!!! This one is a keeper in my German recipe box!!! Nikki, Thank You so much for this great website!! I will def cook more of your recipes!!

  47. Cydney

    This recipe is delicious! Today is the second time I am making it for dinner. My husband loves it too and I think it is perfect just the way it is. :)

  48. gretchen

    Make this all the time. I even blanch some bent carrots and green beans and put it in the crock and cook it all together. You have your vegetables then and no need to cook any to serve with the meal. Serve with mashed potatoes.

    1. Kris

      The sauce seems thin, could I add some cornstarch to thicken it?? Thanks.

  49. Amy

    I added a can of mushrooms to the mix shortly before I served it. Delicious!

  50. Kris

    A friend shared this on Facebook & I'm making it tomorrow!! Cannot wait. I loved all your reviews! Thank you!

  51. Kris

    How can I thicken this sauce? It's a bit thin...The picture above shows a much thicker white sauce...could I use some cornstarch? Thanks.

    1. Dawndee

      I cooked 16ox of bow tie pasta until slightly under done and then added it to the mixture for the last 30-45 minutes on low. It soaked up the extra liquid. Mine was not runny before i added it, but the extra did disappear.

      This was a big hit at my house. I will continue to make it and possibly make some additions.

  52. Ann

    Looks better than it tasted. The sauce had a "preservative" taste to it. Would love to have a recipe similar to this without canned soup.

  53. Jean

    3rd time making this, . creamy and very flavorful and so easy.
    love, love, love this recipe.
