Zesty Italian Chicken Freezer to Crock Pot Meal

Slow Cooker Zesty Italian Chicken

Easy Freezer Meal

I have another Freezer to Crock Pot meal for you guys today.  I absolutely love this one!  First of all, I love that you don’t shred the chicken.  Every time I think of any meat in a crock pot, I automatically think that I am supposed to shred it.  With this one you don’t ๐Ÿ™‚  You serve it just like you would any chicken breast.  And the sauce…..YUM!  We actually ate dinner with our neighbors the night I made this one and we ALL loved the sauce.  We put the extras on our baked potatoes even!

This recipe only calls for a few ingredients.  You just need Cream of Chicken Soup, I used the 98% fat free, reduce fat cream cheese, chicken, and a package of dry Zesty Italian seasoning.  Easy, peasy ๐Ÿ™‚  When cream cheese melts, it doesn’t do it perfectly, you will see small white dots, don’t be worried!

Now, here’s my Zesty Italian Chicken Slow Cooker recipe, make sure to Pin It and Print It so that you can make it again and again.

Feel free to use a crock pot liner for easier clean-up!

As with all freezer to crock pot meals, you can skip the freezing part, and just put all your ingredients into the crock pot in the morning and let it cook all day.

  4. This looks like a wonderful recipe. I have tried using Italian dressing to marinate chicken before but the addition of the cream cheese would be SO good!

  5. I love the recipes that involve opening an envelope and/or can to dump and leave in the crock pot. Thanks for sharing.
