Course Crock Pot, Dinner, Main Course, Slow Cooker
Cuisine American, Chicken, Italian Chicken, Shredded Chicken
Prep Time 5 minutes
Servings 4


  • 3-4 chicken breasts
  • 1 tsp garlic powder
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 cup Italian dressing


  1. Spray slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. 

  2. Season chicken with garlic powder, Italian seasoning, salt and pepper. Rub in the seasonings and lay chicken breasts in the slow cooker.

  3. Pour Italian dressing over the top of the chicken. (You can use whatever brand you prefer. I chose Ken's Italian dressing and it was delicious!) 

  4. Cook on low for 5-6 hours or high for 3-4 hours. If making shredded chicken, then remove chicken from the slow cooker once done and shred with two forks. 

Recipe Notes

  • If you are using this in a Mexican flavored dish, you could substitute cumin for the Italian seasoning and use enchilada sauce instead of Italian dressing. The limits are endless to how you can cook chicken in the slow cooker!
