Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Meal

Italian Chicken

How about prepping supper in under 5 minutes?  Love it!  This recipe is adapted from one I found in the Once-A-Month Cooking Family Favorites book.  I was afraid that my kids would turn up their noses, but they barely left enough for Daddy to eat!

Slow Cooker Italian Chicken Meal

  • 4 chicken breasts (bone-in or boneless — up to you)
  • seasoned salt
  • 1 cup Italian salad dressing
  • 1 cup chopped green bell peppers
  • 1 cup chopped onions
  • 1 1/2 tsp. chopped garlic
  • 4 potatoes, peeled and cut in wedges
  • 2 cans green beans

Season chicken breasts with salt; place in the bottom of the slow cooker.  Add onion, peppers, garlic, and potatoes.  Pour Italian dressing over the top.  Cook on low for 7 to 8 hours.  Drain one can of beans.  Add beans (both cans) to the mix.  Heat through.

  1. Yummo!

  2. I make Italian Chicken all the time, but have never done it in the slow cooker. I’ll have to try this one.

  3. Sounds great! I always forget about the awesomeness that is Italian Dressing. 🙂

  4. Yum! This is pretty close to my Monterey Chicken. I think we’ll try it next time with the Italian dressing instead of the garlic pepper and chicken broth that I usually use.

  5. Oooooo that looks messy and homey and yummy!
    thanks for sharing this! I’m putting it on our must try list!

  6. If you combine chicken, Italian dressing, and the crock pot, I’m convinced that magic happens. You’ll see this linked in my roundup this weekend! Thanks, Amy!!

  7. My book just arrived today, and I am looking through it right now. It is amazing. I love the way all the steps are broken down. I can’t wait to try some of the recipes out.

    Thank you again!!

  8. what a great recipe easy, sounds delicious and hearty for fall fits all the qualities I have right now for recipes I need to serve the famiy

  9. How simple! I’m totally gonna make this one!

  10. I love my CrockPot…have I said that before?? I don’t do much chicken in it anymore but I do lots of soup and an occasional roast. When I do make chicken in the CrockPot, I like to use bone-in without the skin because it seems to stay moister.

    It’s so neat that your kids love good, healthy food. 🙂

  11. I was so busy thinking about why I don’t do chicken in the CrockPot anymore that I forgot to thank you for linking to Slightly Indulgent Mondays. I love seeing your dishes.

  12. In the crock pot as I type! Though I used frozen green beans and threw them on top, and I’m cooking on high so we can eat it for lunch. Can’t wait! (Used potatoes, onions, and green pepper from the garden. Could’ve used green beans, too, but I has some store bought in the freezer.)

  13. I don’t know how I missed this before. Italian dressing is a new like of mine. It does give chicken an excellent flavor. This may make next month’s menu.

  14. Potatoes, chicken and Italian dressing? Oh Yeah! That sounds like a delicious combination.

  15. Thanks for adding this to my CrockPot carnival, Amy! It looks great!

  16. Wow, this looks delicious- and so easy! I love a full meal put together easily, and this looks great. Thanks for sharing, this is going in my recipe list!

  17. This looks great! Just threw it all in the crock pot, and and planning to pair with with Easy Italian Breadsticks in the Bread Machine from Money Saving Mom’s website!
