Savory Sundays: Slow Cooker Creamy Chicken Pasta

Do you know what today is? For some of us it is Christmas Eve.

Some Eastern Orthodox Churches, including those of Macedonia, Russia, Serbia, and a few others mark January 7th as Christmas in accordance with the old calendar, also known as the Julian calendar. Thus today is Christmas Eve and we’re getting ready for our big day tomorrow.

On the Eve of Christmas, it is traditional for all family members to gather and share a special meal. Can you guess what I am eating? It’s not what you see in these photos. Due to the Christmas Fast, today is going to be meatless, dairy free, egg free…

We will be roasting chestnuts and eating a big serving of Tavce Gravce. Dessert includes oranges, apples, and apricots. Wish I could dip them in some milk chocolate… 😉

But, come tomorrow I will be feasting on some pork, potatoes, veggies, this creamy chicken, salads, and desserts. Yes, desserts. Plural.

About this creamy chicken. It’s seriously delicious. Honest to goodness. My husband thinks that it tastes exactly like those frozen dinners by Michelinas. I’m supposed to take that as a complement because that used to be his absolute favorite before he met me and my kitchen. 🙂

I think it just tastes darn good. We always go back for seconds and then sop up the bit of sauce left behind with some crusty bread. I also serve it with a leafy green salad on the side and a bottle of Chardonnay. YUM! I’m getting hungry!

      Oh wow. That sounds gooooood! 😀 But, liquor doesn’t boil down and reduce in a slow cooker because of the very low heat. If you do add the vodka, add it at the beginning, but warning, you’ll end up with a very alcohol-tasting pasta. 🙂
