It is hard to believe that this dish has any skinny to it because it is so delicious! But it is amazing the little things you can do to make your meal more healthy. I made this tonight for my family and they all devoured it saying this is definitely 5 stars! I also love anything that can be made in my slow cooker. I had so much to do today and came home to such a great meal!

  1. Do you combine all the ingredients (except the pasta) and cook in crockpot (bacon, chicken, milk, seasoning, etc). to cook? (or do you add those after to your cooked chicken & pasta?) Thank you!!!!

  2. Hi Alyssa,

    I have been using this recipe for about 3 years. It is Awesome. Both my Hubby and I could inhale it (that”s how good it is. It makes 4 servings for my husband and I. Therefore we we eat two servings at one meal and freeze the other two. It freezes very well and with a salad it makes an easy dinner on a busy day.
