Ready for a slow cooker Italian Chicken and Rice recipe that’s not only easy to make but uses very few ingredients? I was too–so I was happy to find this one!

I’ll admit I was skeptical. Could four ingredients create a tasty slow cooker dinner?

Absolutely! We all loved this Slow Cooker Italian Chicken and Rice recipe! Serve with Rice, my Best Homemade Biscuit recipe plus sides and dinner is served. From Stick a Fork in it Blog.

I do not like to put cream cheese in at the beginning of a slow cooker cycle SO I tweaked this recipe a smidgen.

I also use a homemade Italian Dressing Seasoning that will be shared with you in the weeks to come!

Serve with Rice and a few sides and dinner is done.

  • 2-3 Large Chicken Breasts (boneless, skinless)
  • 1 Envelope Italian Dressing Seasoning

  1. Place fresh or frozen Chicken in bottom of slow cooker.
  2. Sprinkle in the Italian Dressing Seasoning.

  6. Shred Chicken, add in Cream Cheese, and cook 30 minutes longer.

The Carnegie Library in Attica, Indiana is so grand--and I didn't even get to go inside! The library had closed so I could only admire the exterior.
