Slow cooker chicken broccoli and pasta makes an easy weeknight meal on a busy work day.

4 or 5 boneless chicken breasts (I used the frozen ones and thawed in the microwave. Could use other chicken parts as well)
1/4 cup all-purpose flour
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/2 teaspoon pepper
1/2 teaspoon garlic powder
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of broccoli soup
1 (10 3/4 ounce) can cream of chicken soup
1/2 soup can of water
1 (7 ounce) can mushroom stems and pieces, undrained
1 small onion, chopped
1 lb. bag of baby carrots (I cut them in half)
1 lb. bag of frozen broccoli cuts
2 bay leaves
1 1/2 cups penne pasta (could use another kind of pasta if you want)
3/4 cup shredded sharp cheddar cheese
 
In a shallow dish combine flour, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.  Cover chicken pieces with mixture and rub into chicken. Place chicken pieces in slow cooker and pour any flour mixture that is left over the chicken.  In a bowl combine soups, water, mushrooms, onion, carrots and broccoli cuts.  Mix and pour over the chicken. Add bay leaves.  Cover and cook on high 4 to 5 hours or low for 6 to 7 hours.  About 40 minutes before recipe is done add the pasta and cheese.  Serves 6. Enjoy!
 
Note:  You could cut the chicken in strips.

  1. Can you use frozen boneless chicken breast or do you have to thaw them first?

  2. I only have leg quarters. Will they be okay to use?

  3. Is the pasta pre cooked before you add it?

  4. making it now, it smells really good.Since I do not like mushrooms, I used cream of chicken and mushroom soup instead.
