Simple Italian Chicken

Italian Chicken is one of the easiest recipes to make. I got this recipe from my husbands Sister Tracy. It was one of my favorite things she'd cook for us on Sunday afternoons.

There are numerous ways you can cook this... but I'll share with you the way I enjoy it.


1. 4-6 Chicken Breast *you can use any type of chicken though... boneless, or w/ bones, it doesnt matter*

2. 1 low fat zesty Italian dressing bottle (light or low fat either one)

3. Salt and pepper to taste

4. Water


1. Season the chicken w/ Salt and Pepper on both sides.

2. Place chicken into a crockpot on low heat

3. Cover the chicken with the Italian Dressing (should be fully drenched in it...)

4. Add water if needed to cover the chicken up. Not needed if you have enough dressing.

5. Cook on low heat for 5-6 hours... or longer. The longer you cook it the better it will taste!

Thats it! Simple huh? Its so yummy as well! I usually serve my Italian chicken with rolls, green bean snaps, macaroni and corn. Its such a simple an low cost dish you can make.

The reason I dont have a picture of my actual cooked chicken is because the night I cooked this (on Friday) we had guest over for dinner... so I knew had I said "Wait! let me take a picture of our food first." they would of thought I was a nut. So I held back and just looked up an Italian Chicken recipe photo on google. (although the above picture looks as if the chicken was grilled... hehe, thats okay!).

Hope you all enjoy it... it seriously is super yummy.

Oh yea and my guest that we served this to loved it... and also really REALLY loved the macaroni dish I made. Its the "Ritz Cracker Macaroni" recipe. Its so simple.. but has such a unique flavor!

Have a great day! Happy eating!
