Slow Cooker Zesty Italian Chicken (6 Ingredient Meal)

One of these days I’ll have nice relaxing afternoons with all the time in the world to cook. Right now that’s not the case. I feel like I’m running from one activity to the next. On those days, my slow cooker comes to the rescue. This ridiculously simple recipe is another family favorite with very little effort.

One of our all time favorite slow cooker meals: Zesty Italian Chicken.  Only 6 ingredients and to simple to make! www.thirtyhandmadedays.comMy friend Nicole passed this recipe on to me over ten years ago.  I made it right away and it was a hit.  It’s one of those “set it and forget it” kind of things.  Gosh I love my slow cooker.  There are days that I kick myself for not using it.  Most days.  The problem is, it takes just a little bit of planning.  But then once it’s set for the morning, I’m good to go! What about you? Do you use your slow cooker often?

I’ve made it with rice (and use my rice cooker) a million times but every time I make this with noodles I love it all the more.  Either way works for sure though.

Hi- I'm Mique (as in Mickey). I started 30days as an idea file a few years ago. After three years and hundreds of ideas, I now realize that I'll never check them all off my list. When I'm not creating, I love spending time with family and friends and long drives, especially if they end at the beach.

    Hi! Thanks for sharing the recipe.

    Do you make the italian dressing or just pour the mix out of the packet on top of the chicken?
