Okay, not so much…. but it is fun to aggravate my husband with it!

This recipe is so super simple and the crock pot does everything for you!

Serves: 4
Ingredients
  • 2 lbs boneless skinless Chicken Breasts (I like to dice them up so they're chicken tender sized)
  • 1 Can cream of Chicken Soup
  • 1 Packet of dry Italian Dressing
  • 1 Packet of dry Ranch Dressing
  • 1 8oz pkg of Cream Cheese
Instructions
  1. Throw everything in the crockpot on low and cook 6-8 hours.
  2. After about 4 hours of cooking I usually stir everything together- but if you're not home it's no big deal.
  3. Just stir about 20 minutes before serving to really mix together the cream cheese and dressing packets.

 I usually serve this with some bowtie or penne noodles (or both as seen in the picture—I was almost out of both—so why not?!) and steamed broccoli.  Oh, it’s so super yummy- I’m thinking I’m going to throw some on for tonight!  I love that the chicken can go straight from the freezer into the crock pot and it will be ready tonight!  I always keep all these ingredients on hand for a simple meal.

Alright Pinterest friends– this is my #1 most pinned recipe– please comment and tell me what you think about this recipe and if your family devours it like mine does!!!

  20. I’m making it right now and have tasted the sauce just to see and it is already a party in my mouth!!! THANK YOUUUUUU for sharing!!!!

  21. All I have to say is ~ party in your mouth!!! THANK YOUUUU so much for sharing this!!!

  22. Sounds delicious! I have to try this one day.

  23. Can you use frozen chicken?

  24. Is it just regular cream of chicken soup or concentrated?

  25. Maddie Mulhall says:

    Do you mean dry dressing mix packets or actual packets of liquid dressing?

  26. I made this the other night, it is fabulous!! Now that I’ve made it once I can think of other ways to change and add to it!! Yummy thanks for the receipe!!

  27. Do you add the milk for the soup?

  28. Kelli Davis says:

    Ok so I found this recipe last night and tried it today….super yummy! I have 5 children and 1 who is not a big eater and is super picky and he had seconds!! This is definitely a keeper recipe! Thanks for sharing!

  29. This has the ability to be good but needs tweaking as it is super salty….next time I would only add half of each seasoning packet

    • Did you try this again with half of the packets? I agree that it was wayy too salty, but didn’t want to choose ranch OR Italian. The flavor is awesome, the amount of sodium is not!

  30. I liked it but it seemed a little salty. I’m wondering if using Italian Seasoning instead of the Italian Dressing Packet.

  31. This recipe is great! It’s in the crockpot now and I just snuck a taste…yum! I read the other comments and decided to use 1/2 pack of a ranch seasoning and 1/2 pack of italian seasoning and the sodium levels are just right. Hopefully it will be a hit with my family and knowing them, it will be. Thanks!

    • Fantastic…I’m so glad you like it. I’ll have to try it using just half a pack….or maybe I’ll double up the chicken so we can have leftovers. ;)

  32. Tried this and it was delicious! Although I turned it into OMFG chicken by taking a sleeve of ritz crackers, crushing them and Mixing them with about 3/4 stick of butter. I put them in oven on 450 for a few minutes until golden and then sprinkled generously into crockpot! Yumm!

  33. Loved the looks of this recipe…..its all in the crock….it will be our “after church ready to eat” meal.

  34. Sorry but this is not the best crockpot chicken ever, my husband hated it and we fed some to the dogs and ended throwing most away. Funky taste.

    • I’m sorry you didn’t like it. Each person has different tastes….we love it here. Hopefully you’ll give another recipe a try and have better results.

  35. Marie Bradley says:

    This was quite good! I made a couple of changes…Instead of Cream of Chicken soup, I used Cream of Mushroom with Garlic. Also I noticed that some people used just half the packets of they dry dressing mixes ( I did that, too….I also used Good Seasons Garlic & Herb instead of Italian.) Will make this again!

  36. EVERYONE absolutely LOVES this! Thank you!

  37. This was sooo delish, can’t wait to make it again. After reading the comments I decided to use half a packet of Ranch and no Italian and it was perfect.

  38. In the crockpot as I type this. Hoping it tastes as good as it smells! Will let you know!!!

  39. This recipe is AWESOME. So easy too. Made it last night for my family of 6. EVERYONE loved it. I made noodles and tossed them with the extra sauce. Will be making it again soon.

    • I’m so happy you enjoyed it! We love adding extra sauce to the noodles….Hubs even makes sure he gets every last drop with some bread! It’s a definite favorite in our house!

  40. I just threw all the ingredients in the crockpot…I misread and thought it was a 4 hour cooking time…it’s 6… Do you think I could turn the crockpot up to high in about 4 hours to get it to cook quicker, or do you think that will ruin it?

    • As long as your chicken is not frozen it should be fine. You just want to make sure that it’s cooked all the way through so you may want to cut the pieces a bit smaller than normal. Let me know how you like it!! :)

  41. Has anyone tried this with the lower fat creamed cheese? I am just curious. I think it sounds wonderful, but we are watching the fat intake at our house.

  42. Do you use the small or the large can of soup?
    Do you serve it with noodles or rice?

    Can’t wait to try it.
    thanks

  43. Amy Gibson says:

    I made just like you said, except I only put 1/2 of the Italian Dressing packet. Everyone tried it but me, the look on their faces, wow, they all hated it. I’m not going to try it since it smells and looks way too over seasoned, plus no one in my family liked it. I wasted all the money on the ingredients and now my husband went to get McDonald’s. I’m so afraid of new recipes for this reason.

    • I’m sorry your family didn’t like it. Everyone has different taste preferences. I’ve had hundreds of people rave about this recipe so I really am sorry you didn’t like it. Hope you find something else out there that you like! Have a good evening!

  44. I followed what many others said and only used 1/2 of each of the packets to reduce the salt. It worked nicely. I didn’t have any noodles so I served mine over rice and it was awesome! I will definitely make this again!

  45. Sarah Krier says:

    Just threw it all in the crock pot. Can’t wait to try it!

  46. Do you think it would still come out good if my chicken isn’t frozen? Totally forgot to put it in the Crock-pot last night now i have thawed (in the fridge) chicken breasts i need to cook

  47. Just made this recipeand was a bit skeptical b/c haven’t had much luck with crockpot chicken coming out tasting like boiled chicken- Yuck!! Sooo I was leary and let me tell you this was DELICIOUS!!!! Even my outspoken 4 yr old daughter loved it. This will definitely make it to my Keeper List.
    Variations: used thinly cut breasts, used 2 cans of condensed soup (believe me the sauce is amazing), & didn’t have ranch dsg so just googled how to make my own.

  48. I love this chicken! I think I could’ve and should’ve added more chicken (which I will do next time) and I would also like to try it with cream of mushroom soup instead of the chicken soup (just to see which one I like best). However it was SO GOOD that I had to share it with my neighbor when I heard him outside walking his dog. He texted me when he got back into his house (after only one bite) and asked me how the heck I could make something so delicious. Again! Lol! This chicken is the perfect football party, Sunday dinner, potluck, cold day recipe. I will definitely be searching your blog for other awesome recipes. Thank you for sharing:-)

  49. This is in the crockpot right now! Never tried it or heard of it! Also I’m just learning to cook on my own…WISH ME LUCK! I’m hoping mine turns out as great as everyone else’s has!

  50. FANTASTIC!!!! Thank you!

  51. can i cook this on high to shorten the time?

  52. I am making this for tomorrow; but my dear hubby was shopping FOR me, and he couldn’t find the dry dressing mixes—he asked for help from store people, no one remembers ever seeing them (here in Canada?) or just our area, rural…ANYway, bless his heart he bought the liquid dressings, ranch and italian..soooooooooo gonna use my noggin’ and come up with adaptations…. thanks for this

    • Usually I can find them with the packaged gravy and spices section of the grocery store. If you can’t find them then I know there’s lots of different DIY recipes out there for making ranch dressing mix and italian dressing mix…just google it and you should find something.

      • Lynne Hollingsworth says:

        wow, thanks for reply–yes I think I can find it; hard to put that on my dyslexic and incredibly intelligent husband who hates shopping but did it to save me…I will wait and check for myself; I am SURE I have seen it…and yes, you can make a similar combo with Italian spices etc; some on Once a month cooking, I think– thanks so much Melissa!! <3

  53. I’m doing this tonight, and since I know hubs hates cream cheese, so I’m making him a chicken breast with the seasonings and olive oil in a small crock pot while the rest of us get the regular batch. The oil and seasonings will go well over pasta, too. I’ll sprinkle some mozzarella on his. I’m thinking French cut green beans on the side, & definitely serve this dish with pasta.

  54. hi Melissa! thanks for sharing this, it sounds amazing! I am making it tomorrow night. I am brand new to the cooking world and I knew crock pot meals would be the easiest for me. so sorry that I have some silly questions. Can you really put frozen meat into the crock pot?? I had no idea that’s so cool:) Also can I put noodles or rice in there as well or do I made that separate? I am looking for meals that are all in one meaning no cooking on the side (if possible)

    • Robyn- Crock Pot cooking is so awesome…you’re going to love it! With certain meals you can put frozen meat into the crock pot…like roasts, some chicken recipes, some pork recipes, ham, etc. It really depends on the type of sauce that goes with the meal. Sometimes using frozen meat will make the sauce too runny because of the extra water from the meat defrosting…in this case you can play around and just omit some of the water or juice that a recipe needs. Depending on the recipe you can make rice or noodles in the crock pot as well…just know that sometimes they’ll come out a little more mushy. I have several one dish meals and slow cooker recipes on the blog that make everything a breeze to cook….the less dishes the better….right?! I hope you enjoy this recipe!

      • hi Melissa! thanks for replying. I know I said I was making this the other day but I never had time to get to the store but I now have all the ingredients so I am about to start as we speak : ) wish me luck lol I posted a reply earlier but it didn’t go thru so if u get 2 messages from me I apologize. if you don’t mind I would love to keep your contact info so you can give me advice since I am in the learning process. Thank you for being so kind I really appreciate it

        • Definitely Robyn! I’m always happy to help….slow cooker cooking is my FAVORITE! I love that I can just toss everything in, get on with my day, and dinner is ready with very little effort. In fact I’m working on a bunch of new recipes and plan on releasing an ebook on slow cooker cooking in a couple of months….make sure you sign up for my newsletter so you don’t miss any of the new recipes. :) How did your meal turn out?

  55. Would you do anything to adjust the recipe to use thin chicken cutlets instead of a thicker chicken breast? Maybe shorten the cooking time?

    • If you’re using a thinner cut of chicken you will be able to cook the chicken faster. You just want to make sure that the internal temperature of the chicken reaches 165 degrees. But, the nice thing about cooking with a slow cooker is that you can set it and basically forget it…so if you’re still wanting it to cook all day you can just lower the temp and let it cook longer. When I’m in a rush (meaning I remember around 3 o’clock that I forgot to toss everything in the slow cooker) I can set the slow cooker temp higher and cook the meal faster. That’s why I love crock pot cooking….it’s so simple to make adjustments. :) I hope you enjoy!! PS- If you like this meal you’ll LOVE the recipe for Creamy Chicken Bacon that I published last week. ;)

  56. Sorry Melissa but I forgot one thing. can I cook it on medium or high so it will be done in 4-5 hours? or is that not smart? its so late that I was hoping I can??? thanks girl!

    • Robyn- I’m so sorry I’m just getting back to you…I’ve taken the last few days off. Yes, you can cook it faster…the benefit to cooking it low and slow is it makes the chicken more tender and gives it time to really absorb all the flavors and juices. Although if you cook it too long then it can also dry out. The nice thing about slow cooker cooking is that the times are easily adjustable….as long as your chicken reaches an internal temp of 165 degrees then you’re good.

  57. David Keller says:

    Melissa, I’m putting all the ingredients in right now! Just curious, is there any benefit to cooking it on low rather than high? Like will it be more tender if cooked slower?

    Thanks! Looking forward to eating it tonight! =)

    • Sorry I haven’t responded sooner…I hope your dinner was good! By cooking it lower and slower it will be more tender and less likely for the meat to be dry. It gives the chicken the opportunity to absorb the flavors…that being said, if you cook it too long that can cause the dish to dry out as well. The nice thing about slow cookers is that the times don’t have to be exact. As long as your meat reaches a core temperature of 165 degrees then you’re ready to eat. :)

  58. I fully intend to try this recipe because I love Chicken, LOVE simple and easy!

    The cooking times appear misprinted: Cook time = 5 MINUTES? Total time = 10 MINUTES? I’m out of practice cooking with my crockpot so please verify.

    Thanks!

    • Oh….I’ll have to double check this post…thanks for pointing that out. No, the cook time should be 6-8 hours on low in the crock pot…it should only take 5 minutes to throw it together…then you can set it and forget it. Thanks for pointing that out…I’ll get it fixed!

  59. This was absolutely horrible. It had a very rank taste. Had to throw all of it out! I was so hoping it was going to be good. I’m just wondering if it is the cream cheese spoiling from cooking it so long.

    • I’ve never had a problem cooking cream cheese in the slow cooker. Could it have been the chicken? If it tasted rank then that could mean that the chicken had gone bad….unless your cream cheese was curdled…if it curdled then it could have gone bad. I’m sorry the recipe didn’t work out for you.
