Italian Chicken & Pasta

I've got another new recipe for you! This one partially (I changed it some) came out of my Biggest Book of Slow Cooker Recipes book. I tried it in the crock pot, let me tell you something.... this is NOT a crock pot recipe! I burnt the whole mess in a dang crock pot! Can you believe that?! LOL
So I adjusted the recipe & did it on the stove. It tasted really good, hubby approved, & it was fairly fast to put together. Maybe took 30 minutes.

Italian Chicken & Pasta

2 large or 4 thin chicken breasts (cut into small, bite size pieces)
1 can french cut green beans (optional, but we liked them)
1 cup or so of sliced fresh button mushrooms ( I just used up the small pack of them that I got from the grocery store)
1 small onion, sliced
1 can (14 or 16 oz, can't remember) diced tomatoes with Italian seasoning
1 can (regular size, not the tiny one or the super large one) of tomato sauce
1 tablespoon of Italian seasoning
3 or 4 cloves garlic, minced (the recipe called for 2 but that wasn't enough, could hardly tell it was in there!)
Fettuccine noodles

In a large sauce or frying pan, put about a tablespoon or 2 of olive oil, cook the mushrooms, onions, & chicken until the chicken is done. Add the rest of your ingredients & bring it down to a simmer. You can add a little water if it's too thick to start off. And cover it if you have a lid, it'll make a mess otherwise!

Put your Fettuccine noodles in a pot to boil. Let it all cook until the noodles are done. Your ready to eat!

We had some garlic bread (toasted hamburger buns with butter & garlic salt on them) with ours.
This was really yummy. I was afraid that it would taste too much like spaghetti but it didn't. We will have this one again, it was a keeper.

That looks pretty good! Stupid crock pot. I just made a beef stew in the crock pot that was divine, I have no idea what recipe I used because it came out of my head as I went along. Oh dear.

I missed that this was a slow cooker recipe when you told me about it. The Knight LOVES his slow cooker... (but I still say the green beans won't make it in the pot if I expect him to eat it).

You burned it in the crock pot? How in the world did you do that? LOL
Sounds yummy and I'll be feeding to the guineas this week. LOL
