Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Fettuccine

And now for the main dish of the night...Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Fettuccine. I thought long and hard about what would make a good main dish recipe for your big night in, and chose this one for a multitude of reasons.

a) For some reason pasta dishes speak "elegance" to me. And after all, elegance is what we're going for on this romantical night.

b) It's in the slow cooker. Which means you don't have to slave over the stove all day to prepare this meal. Instead you can slave away in front of the mirror getting all dolled up for your lovey.

c) Pasta dishes can be paired with a lot of sides very easily. So even if this is the only thing you make off of my "menu" for Valentines Night...then at least you can rest assured it will pair easily with any number of side dishes.

Okay, that's it. I don't quite know if three reasons qualifies as a "multitude" of reasons. But it'll just have to do.

I found this recipe in my trusty copy of Taste of Home's Slow Cooker Cookbook. I originally purchased this cookbook during their annual $5 cookbook sale with the intentions of giving it as a Christmas gift. And then I flipped through it upon recieving it in the mail. Well, let's just say that I gave myself a Christmas gift this year :)


...1 1/2 lb. chicken, cut into chunks
...1/2 tsp. garlic powder
...1/2 tsp. onion powder
...1/8 tsp. pepper
...1 can cream of chicken soup
...1 can cream of mushroom soup
...4 oz. process cheese (I used American cheese slices, but Velveeta works nicely as well)
...1 can olives
...1 pkg. fettuccine or spaghetti noodles


Place all ingredients except for the pasta in a slow cooker. Stir until well combined. Cook on low for 3 hours. Prepare pasta according to package directions, drain, and serve with sauce.

YUM!! I'm bookmarking this recipe and hopefully trying it out sometime soon. I have a friend who also LOVES chicken fettuccine, and I hope to make this for her when she visits in the spring. :)
