(Easy Healthy Crock Pot Recipe #213 – Easy 4 Ingredient Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli)

I had several readers ask about using alfredo sauce instead of marinara in the easy slow cooker Italian chicken. I thought it was a brilliant idea and decided to give it a try.

To bump up the nutrition further and make this 4 – Ingredient slow cooker chicken alfredo with broccoli a complete meal in a bowl, I added several cups of broccoli florets.

It was a hit!

Skinny on Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli

Using light alfredo sauce instead of regular saves a ton of fat and calories. I used the refrigerated kind, but jarred should be okay too. The sauce thinned out a lot during cooking but was fine once I tossed it with the pasta and broccoli.

According to my calculations each serving has 331 calories and *8 Weight Watchers Points Plus.

Enjoy!

    This Chicken Alfredo recipe was so easy and delicious! I bought a jar of lite, Classico brand, Asiago cheese flavor and added some seasonings at the end such as oregano,garlic, salt and pepper. Made this for our 26th Anniversary dinner and my husband loved it.

        Thanks Martha, look forward to trying many of your easy, healthy recipes! I love crockpot cooking esp. since we camp a lot (haven’t tried yet but should work ) and I got hooked on crockpot cooking after living in Fairbanks, Alaska where we were stationed in the military back in 2000. Busy raising three kids, freezing outside, smelled good in the house cooking and a nice hearty meal at the end of the day. Now, my kids are grown and recently lost 15 lbs. walk every day, lifetime member of WW, and looking for healthy, delicious meals.
        Thanks so much for your inspiration!
