Slow cooker Olive Garden-inspired chicken

Print this recipe
In life, we tend to complicate a lot of things when we really don't need to. I love recipes that are delicious and straight to the point. In the recipe below, we use Italian dressing with chicken breast in the slow cooker for a meal you'll never have to go to the restaurant for.
This recipe uses dried spices such as rosemary and oregano, but you can add any other Italian herbs you like — or use a few teaspoons of ready-made Italian seasoning. This recipe goes well with pasta, rice or salad, and the sauce in the slow-cooker even makes a tasty salad dressing.
