I’m *almost* too embarrassed to post this recipe because it is SO easy. As you know I am very happy to make things from scratch – but some days that just isn’t an option. The other day was one of those times. So here you have it, a slow cooker chicken Alfredo that can be made with just two ingredients. Alfredo sauce is a classic preparation for pasta that involves butter and Parmesan, although more recent versions also include cream.
So, are you ready for this? Cut up some chicken breasts and place them in a slow cooker (I have a 3 quart one which is ideal).
You tip in a jar of Alfredo pasta sauce. Then you cook it. You see? Of course, you’ll need to check the nutritional information on the label of the Alfredo sauce for carb count. The sauce I used is an own brand from my grocery supplier (Peapod), and contains 14g carbs for the entire 15oz jar. It will easily cover four chicken breasts meaning the carb count is approximately 3.5g net carbs per serving, based on four portions. Other brands like Bertolli, Prego, and Ragu are all the same amount so could be used. In fact the highest carb count I found was 28g for the entire jar, so at worst that’s still 7g per serving.
Cook the sauce and chicken for around 6 hours on a low setting or 3 hours on high. The chicken will be SUPER soft at the end of the cooking time! For the last hour you could also add some quartered or sliced mushrooms as shown here, but the meal could be very versatile at that point and you could add in whatever you fancy! How about broccoli? Or green beans?
