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. I
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
1/2 tsp coarse salt
1/2 tsp pepper
2 jars Alfredo sauce
1 (12 ounce) bag frozen broccoli cuts
1/2 pound bow-tie 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.
