Day 264: Easy Chicken Alfredo in the Slow Cooker

Serves 6
1 1/2 lbs chicken breast, cut into 1/2 inch pieces
1 medium onion, chopped
1 tbsp dried chives
1 tbsp dried basil leaves
1 tbsp olive oil
1 tsp lemon pepper
1/4 tsp ground ginger
1/2 lb broccoli, coarsely chopped
1 red bell pepper, chopped
8 oz can of sliced water chestnuts, drained
1 cup baby carrots
3 cloves garlic, minced
16 oz jar of Alfredo sauce
8 oz wide egg noodles, cooked and drained (I used shells)
Combine chicken, onion, chives, basil, olive oil, lemon pepper, and ginger in slow cooker; stir thoroughly. Add broccoli, bell pepper, water chestnuts, carrots and garlic; mix well. Cover; cook on low 8 hours or on high 4 hours. Add Alfredo sauce; cook on high an additional 30 minutes or until heated through. Serve over hot noodles.
I loved this version of chicken Alfredo because it had a lot of color with all the veggies. It had great flavor and I really enjoyed it. Much better than the Alfredo lasagna. I had a couple of regrets though. I wish I would have added some mushrooms to it. I also wish I would have added the noodles the same time I added the Alfredo sauce in. Still it was good and I'll be making it again with the changes mentioned. 4 stars.
