How to make olive garden dressing chicken with cream cheese
I made a half portion of this slow cooker italian dressing chicken recipe, as you can see by the half block of cream cheese. Follow the full recipe for 4-6 portions, or the half recipe for 2-3 portions.
Place raw chicken breasts into bowl of the crockpot. Top with italian dressing, and then add parmesan cheese, pepper, and block of cream cheese.
Set your crockpot to low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours.
Remove lid and shred chicken and stir to coat with the sauce that has been made. If you are adding pasta, add in the cooked pasta at this point and stir.
Olive Garden Italian Dressing is pretty high is sodium. If you would like to lessen the salt content, feel free to sub in your favorite italian dressing. There are some great ones out there, with a lot lower sodium content. This Italian Dressing Chicken in Crock Pot will be delicious regardless of the brand of dressing.
Crock Pot Olive Garden Chicken with Veggies
The original Tik Tok recipe for italian dressing chicken pasta in Crock Pot does not contain veggies, but feel free to add them in to make this a full meal. I would add the veggies within the last hour or two of cook time so that they don't get too mushy. Some veggies you could try are:
- green beans
When I made this Olive Garden Crockpot Chicken with italian dressing I actually halved the recipe, as there are only two of us eating. Even then, I still had leftovers! This crockpot chicken pasta makes great lunches with the leftovers and can last in the fridge for 3-4 days.
