  3. Sounds good! I needed another Chicken crock pot recipe! I have been making the Creamy Chicken Italian (with cream cheese) about once a week!

    Nice to have a change- I used to only cook roast in the crock pot- so good to have options!!!
    Thanks!

    1. I usually do not cook it over 8 hours. The chicken will be overcooked and the veggies too soggy!

    1. I use one chicken breast per each person- which gives me enough for leftovers

  10. Do the carrots come out soft or still crunchy?!? My son loves cooked carrots so he would love this if they are soft.

    1. I find that the chicken does not taste as good as when it is thawed and then cooked.

  12. I liked this recipe because it required a few ingredients.. Chicken breast, 16oz Italian dressing bottle, 1/2 onion, carrots, and water. I tried it using 2 chicken breast and half of the Italian dressing bottle. Recipe asks for 1 cup of water but I ended up adding another cup of water because the Italian dressing flavor was a little to overbearing on my palate.

  13. Does this come out soupy? I have seen other italian chicken recipes that come out soupy. Also, what could you serve with this? Rice? Bread?

    1. Usually the water has turned to more of a "juice" which I then pour over the chicken and veggies in the bowl!

  16. I think I added to much water and Italian dressing on mine is that a problem would it take longer to cook?

    1. I wouldn't think so! It just might make it a bit "soggy"

  17. I have a question about the chicken..
    I'll be making the recipe tomorrow and I've read that it's not good and won't taste as good if I let my chicken defrost then thrown in the crockpot??? Any suggestions on this?? What should I do? also, how do I know if the chicken is thoroughly cooked.?

    1. Hi Briana! Sorry for the late response. Did you end up defrosting the chicken? I usually let it thaw as I find it tastes better that way. Chicken should reach an internal temperature of 165 F!

  19. Chicken whole or chopped when in the crockpot?

  22. To avoid all the sodium and sugar in the bottle, do you think using water with some seasoning would be good?

    1. I have heard that you can also make it with Italian seasoning packets. I will try that soon!

  23. I followed the directions but the carrots were too "crunchy" for me. I'd cook on high for 4 -6 hours. :)
