Marian's Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Recipe


Marian Sellers is a very classy lady who thought she’d have lots of time to cook fun and fancy foods after she retired from the Mormon Tabernacle Choir. She has, however, found that she’s busier than ever with her ongoing organ lessons, bookkeeping for her plastic surgeon husband’s practice, volunteer work for her church, four kids (it seems the older they get the more they need), and a gazillion grandchildren to tend, not to mention traveling with her husband while he volunteers for Operation Smile, and visiting out-of-state parents. So, she is resigned to the fact that she will always be busy and need to cook quick and easy meals. One of her family’s favorites (with good reason – this dish is luscious) is the following Marian’s Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken. It takes less than 10 minutes to assemble, and cooks fairly quickly as far as slow cooker cooking goes. Her family likes it over either noodles or rice, and it’s good on polenta, too. Leftovers are just as good the next day.

For convenience, make sure there is Italian salad dressing mix on the pantry shelf, as well as canned cream of chicken soup. Boneless, skinless chicken breasts from the warehouse store are a staple in most home freezers, so the only special ingredient needed is the cream cheese. This yummy chicken is perfect year round, since the slow cooker sits on the counter and doesn’t heat up the kitchen during hot months, and emanates a warm homey aroma during winter months when a hot dish is absolutely necessary. A tossed salad is a great accompaniment, as well as crusty bread to soak up any extra sauce.

8 Servings

2 pounds boneless skinless chicken breast halves, cleaned and trimmed of any fat, veins, etc. (about 6 medium)
1 packet Italian salad dressing mix
1/4 cup water

1 8 oz. package cream cheese, softened
1 10 3/4 ounce can condensed cream of chicken soup
1/4 cup softened butter
  1. Spray the inside of a 4-6-quart slow cooker with non-stick spray.

  2. Arrange the chicken breasts on the bottom of the crock.

  3. Mix the salad dressing mix with the water and pour over the chicken.

  4. Mix the cream cheese, soup, and butter; pour over the chicken (the blender or food processor makes quick work of mixing).

  5. Turn the slow cooker to the low setting, cover, and let cook 4-6 hours or until the chicken is cooked through.

  6. Using two forks, shred the chicken coarsely; stir the mixture until smooth and serve over cooked noodles or rice.
