Crockpot Chicken and Artichoke with Pasta

With my three pregnancies, I CRAVED marinated artichokes,
probably because of the tangy-ness!
I also craved steak, hamburgers, roast beef sandwiches and skittles. 😀

I can’t blame weight gain on pregnancy though, I seemed to gain my extra pounds between children, when I stopped nursing.  I think I got used to generous portions during the pregnancy (after morning sickness), and also during nursing, when I could eat lots with no ill effects, and it was hard to cut back when I didn’t need all those calories.
Is that just me, or did that happen to anyone else? 😛

Anyway….back to this yummy recipe for Crockpot Chicken and Artichoke with Pasta, which I modified from Easy Slow Cooker Cookbook.
It is delicious and creamy and so easy, and it makes it’s own sauce as it cooks!

INSTRUCTIONS:

  • Spray your crockpot with cooking spray, and lay your thawed
    chicken breast tenders in the bottom.
  • Then add the cream of chicken soup, artichokes,
    red peppers and Worcestershire sauce.
  • You can drain the artichokes and peppers if you want,
    but I don’t think it makes a difference. Give it all a light stir to combine.

  • Depending on how hot your crockpot runs, cook on low for 6-8 hours,
    or on high for 4-6 hours, or till chicken is falling apart it’s so tender.
