November 23 Chicken with Cream Sauce

A lot of our cooking recently has been a combination of the need for easy dinners and the desire to use up food we have on hand. Because I have been working almost full-time there has been less time to shop and plan for meals. I know, plenty of women work and still plan and cook wonderful meals. Give me some time, I am still adjusting. I plan to have this worked out better soon. After leafing through a few of my new favorite cookbooks I found a recipe that called for ingredients I had on hand. This is from Not Your Mother's Slow Cooker Recipes For Two.

  • 2 boneless, skinless chicken breast halves
  • Salt and freshly ground pepper
  • 1 1/4 cup Alfredo sauce
  • 2 ounces sliced mushrooms
  • 1/4 thawed frozen peas
Spray the inside of the crock with nonstick cooking spray, and arrange chicken breast in the cooker. Sprinkle with salt and pepper. Pour Alfredo sauce and mushrooms over chicken. Add the peas. Cover and cook on high for 2 1/2 to 3 hours or until chicken is tender and cooked through.

Audrey's Tasks:
  1. Help measure and add ingredients
  2. Cover and turn on cooker
Mom's Tasks:
  1. Gather ingredients
  2. Assist Audrey
We elected to not add the peas and just serve them on the side. The girls are still learning to appreciate peas so I did not want to ruin the entire dish for them. This meal was decent, not a rave review but good enough.
