Step By Step  

A few easy ingredients and one slow cooker make this dinner happen.

As prepared by Bev Cooks,

This Chicken Broccoli Alfredo makes itself in the slow cooker for an easy weeknight dinner win.

Sometimes there's irony in a slow cooker. It cooks slowly, and takes all day, but also takes no time at all. On your part. You do very little, and the slow cooker carries the load. The load that lasts hours on end. Is your head hurting? 

I especially love that about this recipe in particular, because you do VERY little. And then the slow cooker carries the load. The load that lasts hours on end. Oh wait, I already said that. 

There are seriously only four main ingredients, but it tastes like there are four million. And you didn't do a thing! The slow cooker did. It carried the load. The load that lasted hours on end. Whoops, I keep saying that. 

Okay, enough talking!

 

Slow Cooker Chicken Broccoli Alfredo

In the slow cooker, add a couple of chicken breasts and your favorite jar of Alfredo sauce. Or you could make your own! I chose a jar because newborn twins.

Let that simmer for a few hours on low, then shred the chicken. Keep tossing the sauce every half hour or so. It will stick to the sides, but I actually like that flavor. I'm weird.

Then toss in some Green Giant frozen (totally frozen!) broccoli cuts. You THINK it will take a long time to cook, but it really won't.

Then after about 20 to 30 minutes, add the cooked bowtie pasta to the mix and give it a good toss!
