Tips for Crock Pot Angel Chicken:

  • Italian Dressing Mix – Make sure to just use the seasoning packet when adding it to crockpot angel chicken. Do not use the Italian Dressing as the results will not be the same.
  • Cream Cheese – Add in the cream cheese towards the end of cooking time. Make sure to dice the cream so that it blends easily into the mixture. We recommend full fat cream cheese to be used. Low fat or off brand cream cheese doesn’t melt as well.
  • Chicken – Feel free to serve this chicken whole. But you can also shred the chicken with fork or with a stand mixer.
  • Cooking Chicken – We like cooking chicken on low heat to ensure that it cooks thoroughly and slowly.
  • Slow Cooker Liner – Feel free to use a slow cooker liner or spray the crock pot with cooking spray for easy clean up.

  • Chicken – We used chicken breast in this recipe but you can also use chicken tenderloins or chicken thighs. If you use chicken tenders, you may need to adjust your cooking time since they may not take as long to cook.

  • Add in Vegetables – You can even add in vegetables to this recipe. You can add in green beans, broccoli or spinach for added flavor and texture. Frozen vegetables is also a great option.
  • Seasoning Packet – We used a Italian Dressing Mix, but to change the flavor us a ranch seasoning packet.
  • Parmesan Cheese – Mix in shredded parmesan cheese for added flavor. It would be delicious mixed in the creamy sauce.
  • Chicken Broth – Instead of using chicken broth, you can use chicken stock or white wine.
  • Garlic – We love the flavor of minced garlic, but you can use garlic powder or garlic cloves. Chive and Onion is also a great addition to this recipe.

Can you overcook Chicken in the Slow Cooker?

Yes, you chicken can overcook in the slow cooker. We recommend cooking chicken on low for about 4 to 6 hours. You can use a meat thermometer to make sure your chicken is done before shredding.

If you chicken is frozen, you may need to cook it for a little longer. We like to cook our chicken in sauce which helps to prevent it from drying out if the recipe cooks longer.

How to Thicken Sauce?

There are several ways to thicken the sauce in this Crockpot Angel Chicken Recipe.

  • Shred chicken and stir into the sauce.
  • Use cream cheese that is full fat. Cream cheese will thicken the sauce when added towards the end of cooking time. Do not use low fat or off brand cream cheese as it does not melt as well.
  • You can also make a cornstarch slurry to mix into the sauce. Mix 2 tablespoon of cornstarch with 2 tablespoons of water. Then mix in with the angel chicken sauce.
