Viva Italia! Today I’m sharing the luscious, decadent Slow Cooker Creamy Italian Chicken recipe that tastes like something that takes a lot of time to prepare….but doesn’t!! Woo hoo!
After two weeks away, I have been so excited to bring you some new slow cooker recipes! My slow cooker has really been my best buddy over the busy couple of weeks that I’ve had! I really have no idea what kind of food I would’ve ended up eating if I didn’t have some super quick and easy slow cooker meals to fix! But cooking from scratch is just so much better on my body than eating out a lot! My tummy really doesn’t like that at all! Even though I’m single, using a slow cooker still works! I have a cute little 1.5-quart mini slow cooker that is brilliant for making 1-2 serving slow cooker meals.
Who says that you can’t eat great, home-cooked meals when you’re single….and I’m living proof that you can!
This recipe was really a food experiment. I looked at what I had in the freezer and the fridge (organic diced tomatoes, heavy cream, veggies, and chicken). I had no idea if this recipe would work or not, but was very pleasantly surprised when it tasted really yummy! It is such a simple dish but has a really quick prep time (less than 10 minutes), which makes it a real time saver.
I love the versatility of this recipe for different dietary concerns as well. You can serve this over whole wheat pasta, brown rice pasta (gluten-free), or fresh zucchini pasta (grain-free)….whatever you need and what works best for your body! For those who are dairy-free, you can use coconut milk or cream and omit the Parmesan cheese!
Pair this with some Italian style green beans or a nice salad for a great meal!
