Delicious Chicken Alfredo Bake

My kids are huge lovers of Alfredo. They will eat Alfredo on just about anything. But Matt is not such a big fan of Alfredo sauce so I have to doctor it up a bit to make him eat it without complaint. I use Zatarins Cajun seasoning to add some spice and it’s delicious! If you don’t like food with a lot of spiciness then you will want to go easy on this seasoning. We like it really spicy so I add a good amount.

3-4 chicken breasts
1 box penne pasta
2 jars (15oz each) Alfredo sauce
2 cups shredded mozzarella cheese
Zatarins Cajun seasoning

1. Put chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot and cover with 4-6 cups of water.
2. Cook on High for 4 hours.

4. Cook and drain pasta.
5. Pour pasta in baking dish sprayed with cooking spray.
6. Add chicken and Alfredo sauce and mix well.
7. Cover with shredded cheese.
8. Sprinkle with more Zatarins Cajun seasoning.
9. Bake at 350 for 20 minutes or until cheese is melted and bubbly.

We never have any leftovers when I make this dinner. The kids clean the pan every single time and are still disappointed to not have any left. Sometimes I add steamed broccoli before baking instead of on the side.

Crockpot Chicken Taco Burrito Bowls

I made a delicious dinner recently that started out intending to be one thing but ended up something totally different because a certain teen boy ate critical ingredients to the original recipe. I planned to make Chicken Burritos but they turned into Chicken Taco Burrito Bowls instead when I discovered all the tortillas, Mexican rice, and refried beans were gone. And I dare say, I liked this dinner better!

Ingredients:
3-4 chicken breasts
1 jar (16oz) chunky salsa
1 can black beans, drained
1 pkg frozen corn
1 pkt taco seasoning
2 cups rice, cooked
1 cup shredded cheese
1 container sour cream

Directions:
1. Add chicken, salsa, beans, corn and taco seasoning to crockpot.
2. Add 1/4 cup of water.
3. Cook on low for 8 hours or High for 4 hours.
4. Shred chicken and mix well.
5. Build taco bowls with rice, taco mix, shredded cheese, and sour cream.

The kids loved this! They liked being able to build their own bowls. Next time I’m going to add guacamole and pico de gallo to the toppings!

Easy Crockpot Chicken Stroganoff

My kids love meatball stroganoff so I decided to give it a try with chicken. It was delicious! Everyone asked for seconds and nobody whined about any part of the dinner. That’s a huge victory in a house full of picky eaters. It was just creamy enough without being overly creamy, if that makes sense. I will definitely be making this one again soon.

I was surprised at how flavorful this dish ended up being. I will probably add onions next time I make it but even without the onions it was delicious!

Easy Crockpot Chicken Fajita Pasta

This last week has been crazy in our house. Between the younger 3 starting school and varsity football and all the things that come with the beginning of a new school year I’ve feel like I’ve been running through cement trying to get everything done. One thing that slipped through the cracks was grocery shopping. I’ve been winging it for the last week and we were getting down to the bowels of the freezer. This dinner came about out of sheer desperation and a random grouping of ingredients. And shockingly, it was delicious! The kids loved it, Matt loved it, and Tyler even took it for lunch the next day!

CFP1

Ingredients:
4-5 chicken breasts
1 bag frozen fajita vegetable mix
1 can fire roasted diced tomatoes
1 pkt fajita seasoning
2 cans cream of mushroom soup
2 cups shredded fiesta blend cheese
1 box pasta noodles
1/2 cup chicken broth, cooked

Directions:
1. Place chicken breasts in bottom of crockpot.
2. Top with frozen fajita vegetables, diced tomatoes, fajita seasoning, and mushroom soup.
3. Cook on High for 6 hours.
4. Shred chicken and return to crockpot. Add 1 cup shredded cheese, chicken broth, and noodles to crockpot and combine well.
5. Top with remaining cheese and continue cooking for 30 minutes.

I think I’m actually going to add this one to my regular rotation, it was that good! Even my kids who don’t like vegetables of any kind ate this and loved it so if you have picky eaters they might actually enjoy this dinner!
