From Sandra Lee Slow-Cooker Recipes. Chicken breast pieces are slow-cooked in a cajun alfredo sauce with tomatoes and red bell peppers, then served over pasta. ***After making this again, I do agree with the reviews that this is much too watery. I will leave the original recipe posted as-is since it is from a cookbook, but I recommend leaving out the chicken broth.
- 1 1⁄2 lbs boneless skinless chicken breasts, cut into bite-size pieces
- 1 (16 ounce) jar alfredo sauce (book recommends Classico)
- 1 (14 1/2 ounce) can diced tomatoes, undrained (with green pepper celery and onion)
- 1 (14 ounce) can reduced-sodium chicken broth (Recommend leaving out, makes too sauce runny) (optional)
- 1 medium red bell pepper, cut into strips
- 4 teaspoons cajun seasoning
- 1 lb dry bow tie pasta
- fresh chives, chopped (optional)
- In the slow-cooker, stir together chicken, alfredo sauce, tomatoes and juices, chicken broth, peppers and cajun seasoning.
- Cover and cook on HIGH 3-4 hours, or LOW 6-8 hours.
- Cook pasta according to directions on package, serve chicken and sauce over cooked pasta and garnish with chives if desired.
I make this all the time now at least 2 times a month its great for football Sundays or in my house Hockey night Saturday easy and good.. I have used almost every type of pasta but bow tie I like penne..
I made this about a month ago and my husband and I really liked it! I did follow some of the changes that others suggested. I didn't use any chicken broth and I used the frozen 3 pepper and onions mix that I had in the freezer. I also added a little more cajun spice. It was so good that I'm going to make it again tonight!!!
I didn't use any broth and this turned out great. This is almost a duplicate of Garfield's, only missing mushrooms, pepperoni, and grilled chicken. I added pepperoni slices to mine. Perfection and I didn't have to pay restaurant prices!
