Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken!

This is absolutely one of the easiest yet most delicious recipes you will ever try!   My son has decided it's in his top 10 favorites!   Either he was just really hungry for some home cooking on the night I served it or it's amazing!   This is very tasty and a real family pleaser!

 Here is all you need:

6 boneless skinless chicken breasts
black pepper
seasoned salt
1 pkg. dry Italian dressing mix
2  (10.25 oz,) cans cream of chicken soup
1  (8 oz. pkg.) cream cheese (softened)
1/2 cup grated Parmesan cheese, divided
1 cup water
1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
6-7 slices of bacon cooked crisp

Place the chicken breasts in the bottom of a large slow cooker you have sprayed with nonstick spray. You can even use frozen chicken if that is what you have or use fresh chicken.  Sprinkle with a little black pepper and seasoned salt to taste. 

Go light on the seasoned salt because of the sodium in the soup.   Sprinkle with the dry Italian dressing mix.   You can used something like Good Seasons or I just used a Kroger brand and it was really good.

In a separate bowl, mix the soups and cream cheese and pour over the chicken.  Sprinkle the top with half of the Parmesan cheese.  Pour the one cup water around the edges of the slow cooker.  

Place the top on and set to cook for 8 - 10 hours on low or 4 -6 on high.   All slow cookers cook at different temps so go by your experience with yours.  If it's older, it might take the longer cooking time.   The newer ones will be fine with the lower cooking time.  

When it's done, break the chicken into large pieces and stir the gravy to blend well.  If you want it with a little more gravy, add a cup of milk and heat through.   Right before serving sprinkle with the rest of the Parmesan cheese, the shredded mozzarella cheese and bacon.  

Serve over pasta, rice or with mashed potatoes!    This is also good served over a baked potato.

 I served by placing penne pasta on a large pasta plate and then spooning the chicken and sauce over it and finished it with the shredded mozarrella cheese and bacon!  

 It was wonderful!  Add a salad and garlic bread and dinner is complete!  Hope you enjoy this!!! 


  1. Is there something I could use in place of the cream cheese ... or just omit all together ... the family is just NOT a "fan" ...

    1. You could use sour cream, just add it the last hour.

  2. Do the other ingredients disguise the taste of the cream cheese? This sounds yummy; however, my husband is not a fan of the cream cheese flavor.

    1. Yes, I don't think he would ever even know it's in there. It's more like a gravy!
