Listen, sometimes you just want to dump some chicken in a pot and throw some sauce on top of it. That’s great, and those meals are usually ones the kids and grown-ups will both enjoy, but the problem is, those dishes are often not very visually appealing.
Not this Crock Pot Chicken Broccoli Alfredo, though. It’s pretty and it’s really a perfect meal for those who don’t have time to “make” dinner in the morning. Between throwing together lunches, reminding kids to grab their library books, and feeding the dog, mornings can be wild.
This meal can be prepared in the time it takes your kids to brush their teeth, and it tastes great. True story.
I used my 6.5-Quart Crock-Pot Programmable Touchscreen Slow Cooker to make this Crock Pot Chicken Broccoli Alfredo.
Crock Pot Chicken Broccoli Alfredo
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts or thighs
- ½ tsp coarse salt
- ½ tsp pepper
- 2 jars Alfredo sauce
- 1 (12 ounce) bag frozen broccoli cuts
- ½ pound bowtie pasta, cooked
- 2 tablespoons fresh parsley, for garnish
- 2 tablespoons freshly grated parmesan, for garnish
- Place chicken in Crock Pot, and add salt and pepper.
- Dump sauce on top of chicken.
- Cover and cook on low for 6 hours.
- Add broccoli, cover again, and cook for 1 more hour.
- Toss with cooked pasta, and top with parmesan and parsley.
I used frozen chicken breasts and cooked on low for 6 hours. It was the easiest recipe we’ve had…. Maybe! I used a jar of Alfredo and about a tablespoon of parsley. I thought it needed garlic. Next time I will add more seasonings or maybe just an additional Alfredo seasoning packet! With the ease of this recipe and the quick ingredients, I can’t see not making this again!
This was very easy and quick. I used 3 frozen chicken breasts, 2 jars of alfredo sauce, and some Mrs. Dash. I cooked it on low for 7 hours, with the frozen broccoli added the last hour. It was a yummy dinner served over pasta. I also added black pepper to the finished sauce.
What’s not to like? This is crazy easy, and we all love alfredo. We’ll make this again for sure. I used fresh broccoli, and it needed a little longer cook time than frozen, but I planned for that and it was perfect.
