Slow Cooker Emergency Chicken Alfredo

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

slowcookerchickenalfredo

Okie dokie folks. This is the easiest-ever-don’t-even-think-about-it-meal-when-you-just-really-need-dinner-tonight.

 

Nothing fancy.

 

Just emergency food. ;)

 

In case you’re like me and occasionally have those days too.

 

This Monday (yes, Cyber Monday would be the one), I came down with the all out worst stomach bug I have ever had in my life. 

 

We’re talking, so bad my husband stayed home from work Monday to keep our kids.

 

That bad.

 

(Since my kids were off school Monday, he figured he’d better stay home to make sure I didn’t die under their watch. I think he was really afraid that might  happen.) Thankfully I had a few helpers here to keep up deal hunting a bit, and I posted deals as I could from my laptop in bed.

 

It wasn’t pretty.

 

Tuesday came though, and thankfully I felt oh-so-much-better, but at lunchtime I realized my family would be expecting a meal for dinner that night.

 

I took a look around my pantry, freezer and fridge, noticed I happened to have my emergency-chicken-alfredo-staples on hand, and pulled out Mrs. Potts. (After of course scrubbing an extra time or two because the last thing I wanted was to pass on any germs around here!)

 

Mrs. Potts (again) saved the day. Dinner was served, and my family all loved it. (A tiny miracle around here!) So, if you have one of those oh-my-goodness-what-on-earth-do-I-feed-these-people-for-dinner-again-kind-of-days, this little recipe’s right here for you.

 

You’re welcome. ;)

  • 2 12 oz cans evaporated milk
  • 5 cups low sodium chicken broth

I’m always so excited to find a new way to fix something in Mrs. Potts! So, when I noticed this recipe for Slow Cooker Chili Colorado Burritos, I knew I had to try them out.

IMG_0042

Goodness, this was e.a.s.y., and a great meal to add to our slow cooker rotation. (If you’re a busy momma, you  know how much it helps to have some slow cooked meals up your sleeve!) Literally it took 2 minutes to dump everything in Mrs. Potts in the morning and another five minutes to make the burritos before dinner, and dinner was done. 

 

I love that.

 

Here’s how to get dinner on the table at your house tonight too. ;)

Slow Cooker Philly Cheesesteak Sandwiches

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

 

Goodness gracious, this recipe is perfect. It hits all the things I love in a recipe ~ it’s penny pinched, takes about seven seconds to dump in Mrs. Potts, is pretty low in calories (depending on how much hoagie roll & cheese you choose to eat . . .) and it’s delicious.

Need I say more?

Now, you could fluff the sandwich up a bit by adding some extra mayo or dijon mustard, or just leave it plain and simple. We loved it ~ my kids ate around the peppers and onion, and with less than 15 minutes of work dinner was done.

Success! Here’s the recipe . . .

 

Recipe

Ingredients

  • 1 1/2 lb boneless skinless chicken breast (I used frozen)
  • 2 green peppers, sliced
  • 1 onion, sliced
  • 14 oz can chicken broth
  • packet dry Italian seasoning mix
  • 2 cloves garlic
  • 6 hoagie buns
  • 6-8 slices provolone

Instructions

  1. Place chicken in slow cooker.
  2. Slice onions and peppers, pour on top of chicken.
  3. Pour chicken broth over peppers, onions and chicken, then sprinkle Italian dressing packet over everything.
  4. Cook on low 6 hours or high 3-4 hours.
  5. When ready to serve, open hoagie rolls and layer a slice of cheese on one side of each, then broil in oven for 1-2 minutes until lightly browned and cheese has melted.
  6. Add mayonnaise or mustard if desired, and enjoy!

{4 Ingredient} Slow Cooker Rigatoni

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

Here’s just about the easier slow cooker recipe I’ve ever made. (Well, I don’t know . . . this one and this one are pretty easy too ~ maybe all things in the slow cooker = easy?)

 

As you can tell though, we’ve been keeping things pretty simple around here lately, and this was a great way to use up a few ingredients from the pantry. You could also add pepperoni, black olives, or any other toppings on top of the other ingredients, but this one worked well for us since I didn’t happen to have those on hand. I even used frozen Boca Veggie crumbles that were free forever ago (and happen to be on sale this week as well), so I was thrilled to get one more item out of the freezer! Here’s how to easily get dinner on the table at your house too . . .

 

 

{4 Ingredient} Slow Cooker Rigatoni

Ingredients

  • 28 oz spaghetti sauce
  • 12 oz rigatoni pasta, cooked to al dente
  • 1 1/2 pounds ground beef or ground sausage, cooked and drained
  • 3 cups shredded mozzarella
  • pepperoni (optional)
  • sliced mushrooms, black olives, or onion (optional)

Instructions

  1. Layer half of the spaghetti sauce in the bottom of the slow cooker.
  2. Then add half the pasta, half the ground beef, and half of the mozzarella cheese.
  3. Layer pepperoni, mushrooms or black olives (optional.)
  4. Add another layer of all the ingredients.
  5. Cook on low 3-4 hours.
  6. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Chicken Minestrone Soup

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

I really think I could eat soup every single day when it’s cold outside. So as I was trying to come up with something yummy to make this week, I knew another soup recipe was in order! I’m not a big fan of traditional Minestrone Soup, but I saw this recipe for Chicken and Artichoke Minestrone and thought I’d see if I could tweek it a bit so that Mrs. Potts could do the cooking. It worked. ;)

 

This is so easy and makes a ton – you literally dump the ingredients in your slow cooker and come back a few hours to have a yummy meal on the table. You can adjust it quite a bit – if you don’t like artichokes (or don’t want to spend the extra pennies on them!), leave them out. If you’ve got a can of black beans in your pantry, throw them in. Usually I would use cooked chicken that I pre-cooked at home, but in a pinch I grabbed the canned cooked chicken to make life easy. Really, this soup is so simple and you can’t mess it up – just top with a hearty pinch of Parmesan and add a side of crusty bread, and you’ve got dinner done!

 

(I just checked and the recipe makes twelve servings and has 4 Weight Watchers Points per serving ~ love that!  Plus, you’ll quite possibly have a week’s supply of veggies in one delicious meal. So good, and good for you!)

 

Chicken Minestrone Soup

Ingredients

  • 1 cup uncooked orzo pasta
  • 1 onion, chopped (I used a red onion ~ I always think those have the best flavor!)
  • 2 tsp minced garlic
  • 2 32 oz cartons chicken broth
  • 1 can corn, undrained
  • 1 8 oz can artichoke hearts, drained
  • 3 cups shredded cooked chicken
  • 2 cups sliced mushrooms
  • 3/4 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp freshly ground black pepper
  • 3/4 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 10 oz package frozen spinach
  • 14 oz can diced tomatoes, drained
  • fresh Parmesan cheese

Instructions

  1. Dump all ingredients except the Parmesan in the crockpot (pasta does not need to be cooked.)
  2. Cook on high 4-5 hours or low 7-8 hours.
  3. Sprinkle with Parmesan and serve with crusty bread.
  4. Enjoy!

Slow Cooker Roast

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

 

My friend Mary shared this slow cooker roast recipe with me a few weeks ago, and goodness gracious I’m so glad she did. I popped everything in Mrs. Potts yesterday morning by 8, worked here on PPP most of the day, drove kids around town all afternoon, and walked into a (clean!) house with dinner at cooked at 6PM. (Such a gift!)

 

If you’re a working mom, you’ve got to put this on your menu plan soon. And if you’re a stay-at-home-chasing-kids-around-taxi-driving momma, you’ve worked crazy hard too and need Mrs. Potts to handle dinner for you just as much!

 

If you eat a gluten-free diet, make the recipe without the flour to fry it in (and minus the bread bowl of course) for a gluten free meal that also doesn’t use any cream soup. So good!

Slow Cooker Roast

Ingredients

  • 3-4 lb. beef shoulder roast
  • 3 tbsp flour
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 2 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 2 tbsp olive oil
  • 1 medium red onion, sliced thinly
  • 6 garlic cloves, minced
  • 2 large russet potatoes, cut into 1/4" slices
  • 32 oz beef broth
  • 1 tbsp Dijon mustard (I substituted with regular mustard)
  • 2 tbsp balsamic vinegar
  • 2 tbsp Worcestershire sauce
  • 1 tbsp small cube beef bouillon
  • 1 cup water
  • bread bowls (optional)

Instructions

  1. Rinse roast and pat dry.
  2. Cut 1-inch "X" on top of roast - not slicing all the way through the roast but enough to leave room for the onions to set down in the roast.
  3. Mix together flour, salt and 1 tsp pepper.
  4. Coat roast in flour mixture and cook in oil for 2 minutes until each side is lightly browned.
  5. Place roast in slow cooker.
  6. Stuff onion and garlic down into the roast.
  7. Add carrots and onions around the roast.
  8. Mix together beef broth, vinegar, water, mustard, beef bouillon, 1 1/2 tsp pepper and Worcestershire sauce.
  9. Pour broth mixture over roast, cook on low 8-10 hours. (It will take a long time for the veggies to cook.)
  10. Pour into bread bowls and enjoy!

Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos

Looking for more penny pinched recipes? Here you go!

 

I love nachos.

 

Really, loooooove me some nachos. ;)

 

And while I usually wait to have them at a restaurant, there’s just no reason to make them at home (mine are every bit as good!) Today I tried out Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos (I’ve made Slow Cooker Nachos with Beef before), and goodness gracious, they were fantastic.

 

The best part? I had to take the picture for you all today (day time pictures just look so much prettier), so I’ve just devoured the yummiest lunch in complete quiet while my kids and  hubby are all off at school and work for the day. Bliss.  

 

(I so love my sweet family when they’re here, but some days a quiet home just feels so nice ~ is that awful?)

 

You could also use the chicken to make tacos, taco salad, enchiladas or just anything else ~ it turned out perfectly and is so simple to make!  Here’s the recipe so you can try it out too ~ just in time for the big game coming up next week. ;) 

Slow Cooker Chicken Nachos

Ingredients

  • 3-4 boneless skinless chicken breast
  • 2 cans Rotel, undrained

  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 1 1/2 tbsp brown sugar
  • tortilla chips
  • 3/4 cup cheddar cheese
  • toppings (I used sour cream, green onions and black olives, but you could also add lettuce and tomatoes)

Instructions

  1. Mix together garlic, onion, salt, pepper, brown sugar and Rotel in small bowl.
  2. Place chicken in crockpot and add Rotel mixture on top.
  3. Cook on low 6-7 hours or on high 3-4 hours.
  4. Shred chicken well.
  5. Preheat oven to 350 degrees.
  6. Arrange chips in the bottom of a large baking sheet.
  7. Spoon chicken mixture over tortilla chips.
  8. Top with cheese and tomato (tomato optional)

Skinny Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup

cheeseburger soup - PINTEREST

Here’s my first ever (I think?) Weight Watchers recipe to share! I joined online last week (I’d really hoped to go to the meetings, but so far my schedule hasn’t allowed it), but have been pretty pleased with how easy it’s been to manage.

 

I really didn’t expect to like this recipe all that much (give me chicken over beef any day), but this was really just delicious. I tweaked it a bit using what I had in my pantry, and was oh-so-pleased with the results.

 

You could easily substitute regular cheddar cheese if that’s what you have in the pantry, but I did purchase the (expensive!) fat free cheese to keep my points lower. Let me know what you think if you try it out for dinner too!

Skinny Slow Cooker Cheeseburger Soup

Ingredients

  • cooking spray
  • 1 clove garlic, minced
  • 1 medium onion, chopped finely
  • 1/4 cup celery, chopped finely
  • 1 b ground beef
  • 2 tbsp all purpose flour
  • 3 cups beef broth
  • 1 cup evaporated milk
  • 8 oz low fat cheddar or colby cheese
  • 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1/4 tsp table salt
  • 1/8 tsp black pepper
  • baked low fat tortilla chips

Instructions

  1. Spray nonstick skillet with cooking spray and heat over medium high heat for 30 seconds.
  2. Add onion, garlic and celery to skillet, cooking until vegetables are tender, about 5 minutes.
  3. Spray your slow cooker with cooking spray and pour in vegetables.
  4. Add ground beef to the same skillet you used for the veggies and brown ground beef until cooked through.
  5. Drain ground beef and add to slow cooker.
  6. In small cup, mix together flour and 1/2 cup of the broth and stir until smooth.
  7. Add flour and broth mixture to the skillet along with the remaining 2 1/2 cups of broth.
  8. Bring to a simmer, and stir well, including any of the browned bits in the slow cooker left from the beef ~ then transfer to broth mixture to the slow cooker.
  9. Add evaporated milk, cheese, paprika, salt and pepper to the slow cooker.
  10. Cover and cook on low for two hours.
  11. Put a few chips in the bottom of your bowl then add soup and a few more crumbled soups
  12. Makes 6-8 servings
http://passionatepennypincher.com/2014/01/skinny-slow-cooker-cheeseburger-soup/

If you’re doing Weight Watchers, a serving (3/4 cups) is 5 points including a few 3 tbsps of crushed chips. Not bad for a filling meal!
