This Crock Pot Chicken Alfredo Tortellini recipe is creamy and delicious! and only has 4 ingredients! It is one of the easiest crock pot slow cooker recipes you’ll ever make.


  • 2 to 2 1/2 lbs. boneless chicken breasts
  • 15 oz jar of creamy Alfredo sauce (I used Bertolli’s Creamy Basil Alfredo Sauce)
  • 19 oz package of frozen cheese tortellini
  • 1 cup shredded mozzarella cheese


  1. Place the chicken breasts  into a crock pot in a single layer . I used my favorite Crock Pot Casserole Slow Cooker.
  2. Pour half the jar of Alfredo sauce over the chicken breasts.
  3. Cover the crock pot and cook on low for 4-5 hours or high for 3-4 hours. Cooking time will depend on the thickness of the chicken pieces. Occasionally check for done-ness.
  4. When the chicken is cooked through use two forks to shred the chicken pieces.
  5. Cook the tortellini following the directions on the package. I followed the microwave cooking directions and the tortellini was cooked perfectly in just 5 minutes.
  6. Add the cooked tortellini, the remaining Alfredo sauce and shredded cheese to the crock pot.
  7. Mix well and recover the crock pot. Allow the cheese to melt and the tortellini and Alfredo sauce to come to the same temperature.
  8. Serve with a bit of fresh grated Parmesan cheese if desired.
  9. Makes 4-6 servings.

French Toast Bake

My cousin made this and posted the recipe from Rach’s Blog. Everyone who ate it, raved about it.

** For those who are not familiar with Texas Toast, it is thickly sliced bread.  The slices are about double the thickness of standard sliced bread.  For a better description, click here **

Ingredient Checklist

1/2 cup melted butter (1 stick)

1 cup brown sugar
1 loaf Texas toast
4 eggs
1 1/2 cup milk
1 teaspoon vanilla
Powdered sugar for sprinkling


1. Melt butter in microwave & add brown sugar….stir till mixed.
2. Pour butter/sugar mix into bottom of 9 x 13 pan….spread around
3. Beat eggs, milk, & vanilla
4. Lay single layer of Texas Toast in pan
5. Spoon 1/2 of egg mixture on bread layer
6. Add 2nd layer of Texas Toast
7. Spoon on remaining egg mixture
8. Cover & chill in fridge overnight
9. Bake at 350 for 45 minutes (covered for the first 30 minutes)
10. Sprinkle with powdered sugar
11. Serve with warm maple syrup (I don’t do the syrup part)– Crack eggs & get them started (on low)
– Melt butter in microwave
– Add brown sugar & stir together
– Pour mixture into 9 x 13 pan
– Spread evenly to cover bottom of pan

– Add milk & vanilla to egg mixture
– *Add 1 Tablespoon powdered sugar to egg mixture*
– Spread even layer of Texas Toast on butter/sugar layer
– *I cut off the crusts…this is NOT necessary….I just think it looks nicer…it was for a bridal shower*-

– After you have 1 even layer, ladle on 1/2 of egg mixture

– *Sprinkle brown sugar & cinnamon before next layer*
– Spread second layer of Texas Toast

Add Image– Ladle second half of egg mixture
– *Spread thin layer of butter*
– *Sprinkle lightly with white sugar & cinnamon*
(I think the butter & sugar help give the final product a crusty top….I could easily be wrong….but it sure doesn’t hurt the flavor….and since this recipe is far from figure friendly…then why not?)
– Refrigerate overnight

– Bake at 350 for 45 minutes
– Sprinkle with powdered sugar
– Top should be crusty, middle should be soft & moist, & bottom is just glorious!

– The recipe calls for eating it with warm maple syrup. I did not do this….it would be way too sweet….instead, I added the Tablespoon of powdered sugar in the egg mixture.
– I personally feel that eating it upside down is the way to go…..that way you don’t waste any of the sticky bits of heaven on the plate
