This dish is super easy and delicious. You will be able to start this before work and then enjoy a great family meal at the end of the day.

Aren’t Crock-Pots wonderful?

This is my favorite slow cooker, it is a Crock-Pot brand that I have had for years.

This recipe is truly a quick dump and cook.

Take your boneless skinless chicken breasts and place them in the slow cooker. As you can see, I like to put a liner in my slow cooker. This really saves on all of the clean up afterwards and I highly recommend them, however, it isn’t necessary.

Next, you just “dump”!!

Dump the Olive Garden Italian Dressing, the cream cheese, the pepper and the Parmesan cheese over the top of the chicken breasts.

All there is left to do is put the cover on the slow cooker and set it to low for 6 hours or high for 4 hours.

When you are ready to eat, take two forks and shred the chicken.

Then simply cook up a box of penne pasta (or any other hearty pasta you like or have in the pantry). Drain the pasta and dump it into the chicken mixture.

Stir the mixture, put the remaining cheese on top and it’s ready to serve.

You can also cut up a little flat leaf Italian parsley to garnish the top with.

I hope you and your family enjoys our Olive Garden Crock-Pot Chicken and Pasta as much as mine does.
