Crockpot Savory Chicken Recipe

One of my friends, Amy, emailed this recipe ages ago to me. To be honest, I was a little skeptical. How could something so simple be good?

I am pretty impressed with this Italian shredded chicken recipe. It was simply wonderful.

Now it is a family favorite and one of my go to easy recipes for busy nights. Since you only need 3 things to make this, it is so easy to toss and go. It is simple enough that even during crazy busy mornings, you can throw this in the crock pot. 

I love coming home to dinner ready to enjoy. The flavor of the onion soup mix and the Italian dressing really make the best slow cooked chicken dish. Trust me on this because you will love it!

Make sure you have a good slow cooker to make this crock pot savory chicken.

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Instant Pot Aura. The nice thing about this is you can brown the meat in the same slow cooker. It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean.

It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances. I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

You can use your instant pot or pressure cooker if you prefer.

What to serve with crockpot savory chicken?

This meal is so versatile and you can easily serve it lots of different ways.

  • Serve it with Rice – We recently had it with rice and it was amazing. We do this for lots of meals and it helps put together a quick meal. Shredded Creamy Italian Chicken over Rice is my favorite.
  • Make Chicken Sliders – The chicken is also really tasty on rolls or buns. We love to make sandwiches when we are on the go or need something fast.
  • Add some vegetables – We love to have a side of vegetables when making this Italian chicken. Steam Broccoli or Roasted Asparagus is our go-to vegetable.

Make this for your next Party!

They also make great party food or Game day sandwiches. We have even made sliders for parties and served these delicious chicken.

    No you don’t have to add anything. The chicken releases a lot of liquid.

  2. mabel says:

    Wow! Only 3 ingredients! Don’t you have to add water or broth during the 6 hours?
    Amazing to me to try with my new crock pot. Maybe I have a different kind of crock pot.

  3. Jackie says:

    Dry Or liquid Italian dressing?
