By following this long, detailed and step by step recipe, you will prepare great chicken with broccoli, using a slow cooker.
1Add the chicken, olive oil, Italian dressing mix and the Mrs. Dash to a slow cooker and set to high.
2In a skillet set to medium, add the butter. Once hot, add the onions and sauté until soft.
3Once the onions are soft, add the can of soup, sour cream, cream cheese, chicken broth, nutmeg, paprika, garlic powder, salt and pepper and stir well with a whisk. Allow the mixture to come to a low simmer. Once this is achieved, pour the sauce over the chicken in the slow cooker and stir well to combine. Cover and allow to cook on high for one hour.
4After one hour, turn the slow cooker to low and allow to continue cooking for another two hours. At the end of the two hours, add in the broccoli florets and the drained pimento, if using. Stir again to combine, cover and allow to cook on low for an additional hour.
5Just before done, cook the pasta in a large pot of well-salted water. Once aldente, drain and add to a large bowl. Pour the sauce over the pasta and mix well. Serve immediately with some additional grated parmesan cheese.
