Slow Cooker Olive Garden Chicken Pasta is one of the most popular TikTok recipes out right now! its an easy, slow cooker dinner that’s creamy, cheesy, comforting, and loaded with incredible flavor!
Serve it with a salad and a tall glass of wine- click on some Frank Sinatra music in the background & you’ll feel like you’re right in Olive garden!
This recipe uses super simple and easy to find ingredients! Its extremely easy to make, all you do is add boneless chicken breast, the Olive Garden Italian dressing, cream cheese and Parmesan cheese with some pepper and throw it into your slow cooker! (i added chicken broth to mine and less dressing that the traditional tiktok version)- it gives it a better flavor in my opinion!
In a few short hours cooking (and making the entire house smell like the inside of a Olive garden) you gently shred the chicken, stir in the uncooked pasta and BAM- easy peasy dinner!
Why use the dressing? Well, using the Olive Garden bottled dressing is a great “shortcut”- it adds liquid to cook the pasta (along with chicken broth) and TONS of zesty flavor to the pasta that is sure to be a hit with everyone!
Tiktok has become so increasingly popular recently and this is one that was hugely viral because everyone went crazy over how good it actually was!
The chicken comes out extremely juicy and tender and packed with sensational flavor – its mouthwatering delicious!
You can use any shape/type of pasta you would like for this recipe but my family loves penne so that is what I used!
Once the chicken is cooked, I remove it and I use two huge forks to shred it. The chicken will be juicy and tender -it’ll pull apart nicely! pull apart easily.
This is sure to end up on your weekly dinner rotation for sure! one bite and your family will be hooked!
This recipe tastes best eaten right away- it can be refrigerated for up to 3 days.
