Slow-Cooked Italian Chicken with Vegetables

Super busy these days with my office/craft room makeover and classes so I love my crockpot even more.  I’m hoping to get some pictures of the room makeover up soon but it’s slow going.  My wonderful husband added a couple of shelves in the closet for me and I was trying to find inexpensive ways to buy containers or baskets to contain all of my crafting supplies.  At the moment they are all just thrown into a couple of three drawer plastic chests plus boxes and bags all thrown into a hall closet with no light!  I was in the dollar store and found some great sturdy plastic containers that I am sprucing up with some paint.  Once I get into my craft-mode I don’t come up for air much and the time flies by.  Before I know it someone is always asking “what’s for dinner” and I give them the look that says “what are you making”.

This particular day I also was cleaning out the refrigerator and came across a bottle of Italian salad dressing that needed to be used up.  I remembered that I saw a recipe from The Magical Slow-Cooker’s cookbook that had fresh green beans, red potatoes, and chicken.  I knew she used a different dressing to cook it in and while it is delicious, I had to use up this Italian salad dressing.  I adapted her recipe for my dinner that night and wow, was it good! A whole meal slow cooked all day while I got to craft!  Can’t beat that!

Please note that when cooking chicken in the crockpot, it does come out looking rather plain but it is seasoned well and tastes great; the potatoes were fork-tender.  Also, sometimes the green beans can turn out overcooked but mine still had a bit of a bite to them after 5 hours with my 6 quart crockpot.

  • 1 1/2 lbs. boneless skinless chicken breasts
  • 4 cups diced red potatoes
  • 2 cups fresh green beans (larger beans trimmed and cut in half)
  • 2 -3 cloves garlic minced
  • 1 medium onion roughly chopped
  • 8 oz. Italian salad dressing I use Olive Garden's Light salad dressing
  • ground pepper to taste


  • Spray crockpot with non-stick spray.
  • Place chicken breasts in the middle in a single layer in the crockpot.
  • Place diced red potatoes on one side of the chicken and the green beans on the other side.
  • Top with minced garlic and chopped onion.
  • Pour the Italian salad dressing over top of all the chicken and vegetables.
  • Add pepper, to taste.
  • Cook on low for 4 - 6 hours till chicken is cooked through and potatoes are tender.
  • If desired, you can shred the chicken. I like to leave it whole but it is very tender and most likely will fall apart while taking out of crockpot.
