Description

This chicken crock pot recipe only has 4 ingredients, is delicious and is a perfect week night meal for busy Moms.


Scale

Ingredients

  • 2 to 2 1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
  • 15 oz jar of creamy Alfredo sauceĀ (or make my easy Homemade Alfredo Sauce recipe it is the best homemade Alfredo sauce ever)
  • 19 oz package of cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese
  • fresh Parmesan cheese, finely grated (optional)

Instructions

  1. Place the chicken breasts in a single layer into a crock pot. I used my favorite Crock Pot Casserole Slow Cooker.
  2. Pour half the jar of Alfredo sauce over the chicken in the crock pot.
  3. Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 4-5 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the chicken pieces. Occasionally check for done-ness.
  4. When the chicken is cooked through use two forks to shred the chicken into bite size pieces.
  5. Cook the tortellini following the directions on the package. I followed the microwave cooking directions and the tortellini was cooked perfectly.
  6. Add the cooked tortellini, remaining Alfredo sauce and cheese to the crock pot.
  7. Mix well and recover the crock pot. Allow the cheese to melt and the tortellini and Alfredo sauce to heat up and come to the same temperature.
  8. Serve with some fresh grated Parmesan cheese over each serving and salad and bread if desired.
  9. Makes 4-6 servings.
