The holiday season is now in full swing!
The shopping, the decorating, the parties, etc, etc . . .
It can get so crazy and stressful sometimes!
I seriously plan on using my slow cooker a couple of times a week this month because if I can whip up a delicious dinner in a couple of minutes in the morning and have it ready come dinnertime, it’s just one less thing to stress about.
And when you taste this, you will definitely add it to your meal rotation. It was a big hit with the entire family! Add some Easy Parmesan Garlic Knots and a green salad and you have a delicious meal that is ready in a matter of minutes!
Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Lasagna
Ingredients:
10-12 lasagna noodles, uncooked (it just depends on the size and shape of your slow cooker)
2 (16 oz) jars alfredo sauce
1/3 cup water
1 1/2 cups chicken, cooked and diced
1 (16 oz) container cottage cheese (or you could use ricotta cheese)
2 cups grated mozzarella cheese
1 (2.25 oz) can sliced black olives
2 Tablespoons Parmesan cheese
1 teaspoon dried parsley
Directions:
*You will want to use a LARGE slow cooker, such as a 5-6 quart pot.
Spray your slow cooker with non-stick cooking spray. Break 3-4 noodles to fit in the bottom of your slow cooker. Layer a third of the Alfredo sauce, half of the water, and half of the chicken over the noodles. Spread half of the cottage cheese and sprinkle a third of the mozzarella cheese over the chicken layer. Spread half of the olives on top. Add another layer of noodles. Layer a third of Alfredo sauce, remaining chicken, water, and cottage cheese. Sprinkle second third of mozzarella. Layer remaining noodles, sauce, and mozzarella. Top off with the rest of the olives, Parmesan cheese, and dried parsley. Cover and cook on LOW for 4-5 hours (no longer than 5 hours because the noodles go soft and mushy).
Makes about 10 servings.

    I’m eating this right now. delicious. I used one jar of classic Alfredo and one jar of light. I think I would use both lite next time. (Classico brand). I cooked chicken tenders in the oven with a bit of olive oil, garlic powder, and Mrs. Dash. I also used low fat cottage cheese. Actually, calorie wise this way, I don’t think this is terrible. I made a nice garden salad and some garlic bread. Perfect is right for this time of year!! thanks for the recipe. I will definitely make this again.

    I made this as posted minus the olives. I put it in a large crock pot and it was done in 3 hours on low. I even had to add some extra water. I would suggest not cooking it 4-5 hours. I have it on warm now. Looking forward to dinner.

    Checking back in with my report on this recipe. It was awesome and VERY filling. My husband loved it and even he was commenting how full he was! It tasted like something you would eat out at an Italian restaurant.
    This recipe is a keeper :)

      We have used all kinds of Alfredo sauce, usually whatever is on sale. Bertolli has a nice flavor that we love.
