Crock Pot Zesty Italian Chicken

Crock Pot Zesty Italian Chicken- Shredded chicken with a flavorful punch of zesty Italian dressing made right in your crock pot. Serve it up on a plate with your favorite side dish or as sandwiches.

I’ve been making this chicken for about a million years…give or take 😉 As a matter of fact, it was one of the very first recipes that are made in my crock pot. I made it once and was totally hooked on crock pot cooking.

Tossing your ingredients in a pot, then, coming back a few hours later and your dinner is done?! What’s not to like?

Ingredients Needed:

  • Boneless chicken breasts
  • Zesty Italian salad dressing
  • Dried minced onion
  • Garlic powder

Can I use chicken thighs instead of chicken breast

Hi Hallie- I've never used thighs for this recipe, but,they should work fine. You will probably need to cut back on the cooking time...please let me know how they work out!

Hello. I have been using this recipe for a few weeks and love it so wanted to thank you. It is so easy, inexpensive and everyone in my family loves it. We use it on sandwiches, but I also will mix some of it in with pesto pasta (I use a McCormick pesto sauce mix packet) and a little grated parmesan cheese to add some protein to a pasta dish and it is great that way too.

1/4 cup water does not seem like enough liquid, is that right? Just wondering. :)

I am going to try this over the weekend to feed the men that are putting in my new furnace. Can't wait!!! How many sandwiches does the 3-4 breasts make?

Hi- Hope you enjoyed them! You should get about 6 sandwiches, depending on how much chicken you pile on your bun :)

Hi Kelly- you should be fine putting it in frozen. I have done it myself and it's been ok.
