Chicken, Crockpot, Dinner

Cajun Chicken Alfredo in the Crockpot

 Over the Christmas to New Years week we hosted our daughters boy friend for a visit.  A few nights we went out to eat to expose him to some of our great local great restaurants, but a couple of nights we made dinner here at home.  One of those nights while I was looking through Facebook I saw where he had tagged our daughter on a recipe post from “Get in my Belly” on Facebook.  Since it looked like he wanted to try this I decided to give it a try that night,  
New Year’s Eve
It was a pretty easy recipe, all prepared in the crockpot and done in just over 3 hours.  We had most of the ingredients on hand just needed the Cajun seasoning.  Lately we have made sure that we have at least a pint of heavy cream and half and half on hand.  It seems more and more recipes are calling for them that we have been using.  This recipe required the heavy cream  and since it was the holidays we definitely had enough.  The results were delicious and well received.  I think our daughter will be making this once she is back at school.

Ingredients

3 Skinless, boneless chicken breasts
4 tsp of Cajun Seasoning
4 Tbsp Butter
1 Red bell pepper, chopped
1 Green bell pepper, chopped
2 cups heavy cream
1/2 tsp Dried basil
1/2 tsp Lemon pepper
1/2 tsp Salt
1/4 tsp Garlic powder
1/4 tsp Ground black pepper
8 oz Penne Noodles
Parmesan Cheese for topping

Directions

Place chicken breasts in the bottom of the slow cooker. Cover the chicken with the Cajun seasoning.
Add the rest of the ingredients EXCEPT the Penne Noodles. Cook on high. After about 2.5 hours, check the chicken. If it is cooked, shred the chicken. Add the Penne noodles at this time.
Once the Penne noodles are fully cooked (about 30 minutes) it is time to serve. Garnish with Parmesan.
