Weight Watchers Recipe of the Day - 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 recipe. 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!
Slow Cooked Chicken Alfredo with Broccoli Recipe Notes
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.
