Can I put these ingredients into a crockpot and have it turn into food?

Or should I just heat it up on the stove?

Chicken tenderloins
Frozen chopped spinach or frozen brocolli
Crimini mushrooms
Onion
jar of Alfredo sauce


I am thinking it would taste better just heated in a pan? But would be easier for me to set and forget.

  • I'd just add the veggies toward the end- but it sounds good to me!

  • Ok. So frozen spinach added near the end. Mushrooms go in at the beginning?

  • Make sure you defrost that spinach and press it very well between towels or it may get too watery. I'd put the mushrooms in half way....never used them in the CP before so I'm not too sure.

  • Try it. You can put almost anything in a crockpot and have it turn into food. Maybe serve it over pasta or rice.

  • Spinach and broccoli towards the end, and I would make sure both are thawed. Mushrooms at the beginning.

    Sounds good to me, there's nothing unusual there.

  • The chicken should be almost done before putting in the rest. IMO
