Chicken breast from the roasted chicken (homemade or storebought) tossed with a Greek yoghurt dressing for a fuss free, midweek meal that’s high in protein, big on flavour and low in calorie. Enjoy it in a sandwich, wrap, or over a bed of pak choi greens or lettuce.

Greek Yoghurt Dressing
  • 2 Chicken breast leftover from a roasted chicken, diced
  • 300 g Seedless red grapes – halved
  • 150 g Pak choi, white chunky stalks, chopped
  • 2 stalk Spring onions, thinly sliced
  • 1 Red onion, peeled and finely diced
  • 100 g Peanut nuts, salted and toasted
  • 250 g Greek yoghurt, full fat
  • 1 tbsp Lemon juice
  • 2 tsp Honey or maple syrup
  • Sea salt and freshly milled black pepper to taste
  • 2 tbsp Dill, frozen or fresh
  1. Place the diced chicken, grapes, chopped pak choi white stalks, spring onions, red onions and peanuts in a large bowl.
  2. In another bowl, whisk together the Greek yogurt, lemon juice, honey or maple syrup, salt, and pepper until smooth. Pour over the chicken mixture and toss to coat. Taste and season. Cover and chill for at least 1 hour or up to overnight for flavours to meld.
  3. When ready to serve, sprinkle with fresh dill. Serve as a filling for sandwiches, atop salad greens, as a dip with crackers, or simply enjoy it directly out of the bowl.

CROCKPOT CHICKEN ALFREDO LASAGNA – Butter with a Side of Bread by Gordon Ramsay

CROCKPOT CHICKEN ALFREDO LASAGNA - Butter with a Side of Bread


Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Lasagna packed with vegetables, tender chicken and 3 kinds of cheese! Easy crockpot lasagna recipe perfect for busy weeknights!

Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Lasagna recipeWith summer comes hot temperatures and the desire to order take out. But when you realize how simple and fast this dinner is to prepare you may just put that phone down and enjoy a home cooked meal instead. As a perk, your slow cooker doesn’t use as much energy or heat up the house as much when used! Bonus!

Making Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Alfredo

I’ve seen several recipes for crockpot lasagna, but to be honest, most had mixed reviews. Not only that, but I wanted an Alfredo lasagna where I could add in some veggies from the garden. So after reading a ton of different recipes and comments, I came up with this easy recipe and oh my heavens~ it’s a winner!! It’s so delicious and the noodles and vegetables were cooked perfectly. It’s not dry and has a wonderful flavor. It came together really quickly and I have a meal’s worth of leftovers, which is a bonus! My kids and husband were all raving about it, so it will certainly go into our normal rotation of meals.

Crockpot Chicken Alfredo Lasagna recipeCan I Use a Rotisserie Chicken?

If you have a rotisserie chicken on hand, by all means, use it (that’s what I did!) I love how the chicken comes precooked and at a great price. I love buying them to help stretch meals by taking and shredding the meat on the bones.

What’s Better Ricotta Cheese or Cottage Cheese for Lasagna?

Cottage cheese is a great option for those on a diet and wanting a healthier alternative. Cottage cheese may not have the same texture but it does have a similar flavor and at a fraction of the calories and fat.

How to make slow cooker chicken alfredo lasagnaHow to Make Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Alfredo

Slice your vegetables and dice the chicken.

Combine the ingredients for both the sauce mixture and the cheese mixture in separate bowls t=so that they’re ready to go.

To layer your lasagna, the noodles will be divided into 3 portions. You can set them into 3 groups now to make it easier when putting it all together.

The sauce mixture will also be divided into thirds.

The cheese mixture will just be divided in half, as will your vegetables. It’s okay to overlap the noodles- just try and cover as much as the crockpot as you can. I usually lay out a few, and then brake the others into pieces to fill in the gaps.

Arrange everything close to your crockpot so it’s easy to grab and use.

How to make slow cooker chicken alfredo lasagnaHere is how I layered my lasagna:

First place ⅓ of the sauce on bottom and top that with ⅓ of the noodles. Add ½ of the cheese mixture and top it with ½ of the vegetables. Add ⅓ of the noodles and follow it with ⅓ of the sauce. Add in the remaining 1/2 of the vegetables and ½ of the cheese mixture followed by the last ⅓ of the noodles and sauce mixture.

Once you have everything layered in your crockpot, turn the heat onto low, put the lid on and cook it for 3 hours.

Once 3 hours have passed, take a fork and make sure the top layer of noodles are all submerged in the dish and they aren’t drying out. {Push it down a little if you need to.} Add the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses to the top of the lasagna. Replace lid and continue cooking for another 30 minutes.

Turn the crockpot off and then let it sit for about 20 minutes or so before serving. {This allows the lasagna to soak up more liquid and helps the pieces hold together better.} Cut and serve.

What Jarred Alfredo Sauce is Best?

I prefer store-bought  Alfredo Sauce that’s kept in the refrigerated section, as opposed to the jarred variety. It tastes more homemade and fresh to me.

How Long Are The Leftovers Good For?

After the meal is completely cooled down, you can store it in an airtight container and place it in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can reheat it in the oven at a low temp or in the microwave until it’s been heated through.

Introduction and My Rating

The weather is getting colder, and it is time for some great chili. But this super simple crock pot chicken chile is a star year-round, also.

We all love a good bowl of chili, and this one will make you smile. I have many other chili recipes, but this one is special. It has a little heat, a nice sharpness, and great flavor. Add in that it is crockpot easy, this chili is a winner in every way.

Roughly based on my Ultra Simple Crock Pot White Chicken Chili, I pulled the pepper jack cheese, added some green chilis and spices. Of course, I changed the salse from red to green.

My Rating

My rating system. Great 5 out of 5


A nice solid five.

🐓The Chicken

Get your chicken any way you want. Rotisserie chicken is excellent here, but I usually just toss a couple of chicken breast in a 350° oven until done (about 30 minutes, give or take a little). 1 pound will yield about 3 cups.

You need about 3-4 cups for the standard recipe. You can use a bit more or less for your taste.

Raw Chicken Option

The easiest way to use raw chicken is to add the raw chicken with the other ingredients. Cook on low for about 3 hours or high for 1 1/2 hours, then remove and shred. Then place back into the crock pot to finish cooking.

Salsa Verde

Salsa verde is a type of spicy green sauce in Mexican cuisine. It is based on Mexican green tomato or tomatillo and chili pepper. I have never had a good source of tomatilloes, so it is generally not done fresh in my home.

✔️Tips

The Beans

I like to use white beans like great northern or navy beans but you can use the beans of your choice. I now recommend draining and rinsing precooked beans now due to the sodium.

Crock Pot Size

This needs a crock pot of 4 quarts or above as written if you use the full amount of beans and broth. Both are recommended.

Nutrition

This is a high protein and low-fat chili that will fit most diets with under 300 calories per serving.

Sodium

If sodium is a concern for you, skip the added salt is about 140 mg per serving.  Also, drain and rinse your beans will decrease the sodium some. And, of course, low sodium broth.

Storage

Good refrigerated for 3-4 days. Good frozen for 3-4 months.
