Now that school is back in session, I am always about the easy dinners. Because when the kids start rolling in the door, just a couple hours before dinner time, things just don’t settle down. To have it already cooking makes my life SO much easier!

This Slow Cooker Cream Italian Chicken is one of the easiest recipes you can make! I love creamy recipes and this chicken is perfect complimented with rice or noodles.

Funny story. After you have been blogging for 5 and a half years and loading the recipe index with recipes, you sometimes forget that you may have a similar recipe. As I was typing this up, I realized I have a Slow Cooker Italian chicken recipe that is pretty similar to this one. BUT this one has different proportions and does not have cream of chicken soup, and is honestly in my opinion much tastier- so I thought I would share it anyways :)

It was actually inspired from this Creamy Italian Penne Pasta with Vegetables recipe I posted a couple weeks back. I absolutely LOVED the flavor of the dish and decided to make a slow cooker chicken version!

Definitely put this recipe on your must make list! It is absolutely DELICIOUS!

    Question: Is an "envelope" of Italian seasoning the Italian Salad Dressing mix (such as Wishbone or Good Seasons?)

    1. Chef in Training

      yes that is exactly what that is! I tried to clarify that in the recipe now, thanks for bringing it to my attention!

  2. Lacey

    Do you use frozen or thawed chicken breasts? If they are thawed, how much longer would you need to cook them frozen? Thanks!

    1. Chef in Training

      I used thawed. I would do at min an 1-2 hours longer but it may take more. It just depends how hot your slow cooker gets. Just watch it and let me know what you find :) Thanks!

  3. Katie

    Do you put the chicken in raw?

    1. Chef in Training

      yes I did

  4. Tiffany

    Do I make the dressing or I'm I just putting the dry dressing?

    1. Chef in Training

      dry, I'll be sure and update that :)

  5. Rebekah

    Could you possibly use something other than cream cheese??

  6. Crystal

    Loved this!! I made this for my family last night and everyone went back for seconds. My husband text me earlier and said that he was going home to get some for lunch. No leftovers for tonight! Thanks for a great meal.

    I always use frozen chicken. Works out great. Maybe an hour longer on low.

    This chicken recipe is a real winner! Even my picky family had multiple helpings. I served over Reame's noodles (frozen food section) - it really makes the dish. Next time I make it I may add mushroom and carrots for some color and helping of veggies. Thank you ! Can't wait to try more of your recipes!

    I really want to make this tonight but I do not have any cream cheese on hand. Can I do without it or will it completely alter the dish?

  12. Steve

    What size slow cooker?

  13. Sher

    Made this the other night and my two kiddos asked for seconds. We all loved it and it was super easy! We added black pepper and shredded parm cheese on top.
