2-3 lb boneless, skinless chicken breasts, cubed
1-2 Tbsp creole seasoning (see note below)
1/4 C butter
1 Tbsp minced garlic
1 tsp basil
1/2 tsp lemon pepper

1 C heavy cream

    1. Add the chicken, butter, and seasonings to your slow cooker. Stir to combine.
    2. Cover and cook on low for 7-8 hours.

    4. Add the cornstarch/broth mixture to the slow cooker and stir well. Add the heavy cream and stir. Re-cover the slow cooker to keep things warm until you’re ready to eat.
    5. Serve hot over whole wheat pasta. Garnish with red pepper and green onions, if desired.
