Crock-Pot Creamy Chicken And Summer Squash
We love this time of year when we can use our garden to supplement our meals with recipes like Crock-Pot Creamy Chicken and Summer Squash. Any summer squash will work for this recipe. I used yellow squash, but you can also use zucchini, crookneck squash, cousa squash, pattypan squash, or globe squash.
Feel free to mix them up even for added color and an eye appealing dish!
You could also use just 3 squash and make up the difference with baby carrots, seeded quartered tomatoes or peppers. Those would make it pop even more and would be fabulous for taste.
I used canned cream of chicken, but you can make your own with the recipe here.
My family is eating low carb so I used crushed pork rinds instead of bread crumbs but regular bread crumbs will work just great if you are not on a low carb diet. You can even omit it if necessary.
You guys know that I just really like to cook flexible recipes that you can easily adapt to your needs and the tastes of your family. While I encourage you to try this recipe as written I think sometimes a recipe can just be used as inspiration for something you make up on your own by swapping out ingredients or veggies.
So feel free to use your favorite cheese, and favorite summer squash or whatever bounty is coming from your garden as it’s sure to be a hit. I served this on just some basic rice that I cooked on the stove. Pasta would work great as well!
Bonus points…the leftovers taste great too!
