I used boneless chicken breasts as well. Easy to put together in the morning....and then the sandwiches came together quickly at dinner time. Thanks for the recipe!

Ingredients Nutrition

  • 4 bone-in chicken breast halves
  • 4 bone-in chicken thighs
  • 1 (1 1/4 ounce) envelope onion soup mix
  • 14 teaspoon garlic salt
  • 14 cup prepared Italian salad dressing
  • 14 cup water
  • 14 -16 hamburger buns, split


  1. Place chicken in crockpot.
  2. Sprinkle with soup mix and garlic salt.
  3. Pour dressing and water over chicken.
  4. Cover and cook on low for 8-9 hours.
  5. Remove chicken and cool slightly.
  6. Skim fat from cooking juices.
  7. Remove chicken from bones and cut into bite-size pieces and return to crockpot.

  9. I have also used boneless chicken pieces and cut them up before placing in the crockpot. You just need to adjust cooking time if doing it this way.
