Sage Crock-Pot Chicken plus Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo

I know I have posted many chicken recipes lately, but cooking up a Zweber Farms chicken is really easy when you use the crock-pot. When days are nice and many things need to done outside, the crock-pot is my time saver.

Sage Crock-Pot Chicken

  • Zweber farms Whole Chicken
  • 1/4 cup dry white wine
  • 3-4 springs of fresh sage
  • salt and pepper to taste
  1. Place the chicken in crock-pot. I will even put it in frozen. Pour wine over chicken. Tuck springs of sage under wings and in butt. Sprinkle with salt and pepper.
  2. Cook on low for 6-8 hrs. The chicken is done when internal temp is 175 degrees.

With the left overs you can make a yummy Chicken Fettuccine Alfredo.

  • 2 cups leftover Sage Crock-Pot Chicken
  • 8 oz fettuccine (or any type of noodle, I always use penne so that the boys can pick it up)
  • 4 tablespoons Organic Valley butter
  • 1 cup Organic Valley whipping cream or whole milk
  • 1 cup Parmesan cheese
  • Salt and pepper to taste
  • Optional: 1 can of diced tomatoes drained.
  1. Prepare pastas as directed on package.
  2. Melt butter in wide saucepan. Add 1/2 cup cream and boil until thickened.
  3. Reduce heat to medium; add 1/2 of pasta. Mix gently
  4. Add 1/2 cheese and 1/4 cream. Mix gently
  5. Add remaining pasta and remainingĀ  cream. Mix gently
  6. Add chicken and heat through.
  7. To make it a one pot meal, I will add the diced tomatoes and top with extra cheese

Serve both meals with a crunchy side salad and a tall glass of Organic Valley milk.

Enjoy!
