Crockpot Alfredo

Here’s a recipe I tried recently that’s very simple to put together and leave in the crockpot all day. The credit for this recipe goes to MomsWithCrockpots.com.

Crockpot Chicken and Mushroom Alfredo

1 1/2 pounds chicken tenders or cubed chicken breasts

2 8oz packages of Baby Bella mushrooms

1/2 teaspoon salt

1/4 teaspoon pepper

1/4 teaspoon garlic powder

2 8oz packages of cream cheese, cut into chunks

1 cup (2 sticks) of butter

2 cups grated parmesan cheese

1 1/2 cups whole milk

Place uncooked chicken in a large crockpot, top with mushrooms and the seasonings. On the stove, melt butter and cream cheese and add milk and cheese. Whisk together until smooth and pour over the mushrooms and chicken. Cook on LOW 5-6 hours or on HIGH for 2-3 hours. Serve with the pasta of your choice. Serves 6-8.

You can cut down the fat, of course, by using low fat milk and cream cheese.
