Italian Chicken is one of our most favorite recipes ever… my sister, Camey, gave this recipe to me forever ago AND we’ve loved it ever since.   I especially love quick and easy Crock-pot suppers for crazy busy days :)

Use the reserved shredded chicken from this recipe in this delicious Italian Artichoke Chicken Pasta !  I even freeze the chicken in a freezer bag and pull it out later when I need a quick and easy dinner.

Italian Chicken is a dish the whole family will love- at least we’re huge fans :)

Happy Thursday!

    This looks wonderful, have a question – when you say to use 2 dry Italian seasoning packets, do you mean dry Italian salad dressing mix?

    Thank you

    What is neufatchel cream cheese? Could I substitute any cream cheese and if so how much do I use?

      Hi Kristy! Neufatchel Cream Cheese is 1/3 lower fat cream cheese, of course it’s fine to use regular cream cheese too but I wouldn’t use fat free- it has a different texture and doesn’t melt well. You will adore this recipe! It’s sooooooo good :) xoxo~ Ruthie
