WW Recipe of the Day: Lightened Up Slow Cooker Chicken a la King
(199 calories | 4 3 3 myWW *SmartPoints value per serving)
I made this easy slow cooker chicken ala king to serve on top of Easy Crock Pot Baked Potatoes recently.
It’s a combination of a couple of different recipes that came together really quickly thanks to a can of creamy roasted garlic Progresso Recipe Starters in the pantry.
The Skinny of Slow Cooked Chicken Ala King
We’ve both been a little under the weather with cold symptoms, so a dose of this easy crock pot chicken a la king seemed like a perfect creamy comforting antidote. Not to mention great way to use up some leftover cooked rotisserie chicken. I guess I was right, because Rod exclaimed it, “Perfect for tonight,” which I took as a huge compliment.
What Can I use Instead of the Progresso Recipe Starters in this Recipe?
There are lots of things you could use instead. The easiest is probably condensed cream soup. I’d use 1 can of cream of condensed mushroom or cream of chicken soup, stirred together with 1 can of low fat evaporated milk. Or maybe a can of Progresso Creamy Mushroom sauce, which is the same size, 18 ounces as the Recipe Starter. Hope this helps.
I served our easy slow cooker chicken a la king over baked potatoes with Caesar salad on the side.
