Italian Crockpot Chicken

You know those pins that have just  been sitting in your "recipe" board for months or even years? There they stay, looking delicious, but you still haven't tried them. Poor things.

I periodically feel bad for those poor lonely pins. So I'll scroll through my board and pick out the ones I haven't tried yet. This Italian Crock pot Chicken is one of those. I've had it for years and always look at it and think "Man, that looks good!" but never do anything about it. The other day I did something about it.

And boy am I glad! This crock pot recipe is perfectly simple and as yummy as it looks. It's a good way to spice up your chicken recipes - because if you're anything like me, you have only a few that get put on repeat. When I cooked this one I used frozen chicken, but if you get home from work and are in a hurry to make dinner - I'm sure thawed would work just fine as well.

Just finished eating this and it was delicious! I had decided to make a chicken & Italian dressing recipe that I pinned. I couldn't find it so did a search and found your blog. I thought it was cute that I was attempting to do what you wrote about and ended up with a delicious dinner because of it. Now I will be pinning your recipe :)
