Chicken Alfredo for the Freezer

IMG_9340 - Copy3 lbs of raw chicken breasts, or tenderloins

4 (16 oz) jars Alfredo or you can make your own recipe (see recipe below)

1 large red pepper, diced

8 oz sliced mushrooms, washed

Divide all ingredients equally between your freezer Ziploc bags.  When ready to eat, remove from freezer and thaw.  Cook on low for approx 4 hours.  Slow cookers vary but this dish is best when the chicken is just baked and not over done.

You can add frozen broccoli or peas the last hour if you want your dinner to be a one dish meal.  Serve with cooked pasta or zucchini noodles.
