Slow cooker meal prep, Italian style. This Italian Slow Cooker Chicken recipe is creamy, low in fat, high in protein, budget friendly, and tastes great as is or paired with almost anything!
Start this one by taking out your slow cooker and 4 1/2 pounds of chicken breast. If you don’t have a slow cooker, here’s a link to the one we’ve been using for over a decade and recommend!
Make sure to trim the fat off of your chicken breast and cut them in half or into pieces. Keep in mind that your cooking time may change depending on how big or small your chicken pieces are.
Add your chicken into your slow cooker followed by 1 can 98% fat free cream of mushroom, 1/2 teaspoon of black pepper, 1 teaspoon of Italian seasoning or equivalent, 1 1/2 cups of optionally chopped baby bella mushrooms, 1 packet of a dry Italian dressing mix, 1/2 chopped up red onion, 8 ounces of fat free cream cheese, 1/2 cup of water, and 4 cloves of chopped up garlic or 2 teaspoons of minced garlic.
Mix all of your ingredients together until everything for your Italian slow cooker chicken looks incorporated.
Put the cover on your slow cooker and turn it on low heat for 6-8 hours. Make sure to give it a quick mix halfway through cooking!
Pro tip? Add more/other chopped up vegetables into your slow cooker for even more fiber and flavor!
