This looks so yummy and easy! You said grilled chicken so the chicken should be cooked before going in the crock pot? It won’t get overcooked being in the crock pot for that long? Can you do it with uncooked chicken?

Hi, do you have any recommendations for using squash, zucchini, etc that hasn’t been frozen? Would I be able to add them later in the cooking proccess?

Your recipe calls for the Healthy Choice Garlic and Herb Sauce – but when I look that up it is a red sauce and the picture doesn’t look like it has a red sauce. I always thought primavera was with a white or light sauce.

My family liked it but said the chicken was a little dry, so having small chunks of chicken would probably be better than whole breasts.

I stumbled upon this when searching for a recipe. I wanted to try a crock pot version of chicken primavera. This recipe is so versatile.

Can you use fresh veggies instead of frozen? When you say white sauce do you mean something like alfredo sauce?

Tried this out for dinner last night. Was pretty tasty and very easy, but I would definitely add the pasta and veggies in partway through next time, because everything turned to a big pile of mush. Tasty mush, but mush – my sweetie said, “so…uh…what IS this that we’re eating?” 🙂

I am going to try this, however, I am picky about my pasta having spent three years in Sicily (my husband was military), so I will cook my pasta on the stove so that I may have my pasta al dente. I love pasta primavera! Can’t wait to try this!
