There are certain dishes that really bring people together. This rich, creamy chicken dish is one of those. Just the aroma that emanates from the pot as it cooks is enough to draw people to the kitchen. Even better, this is an easy slow cooker recipe that cooks while you attend to other things.
The recipe is modeled on a popular Olive Garden dish that's served over pasta. With its rich, garlicky sauce, the dish is terrific on pasta, but it’s also perfect over rice or couscous. For a low-carb version, try it over cauliflower rice.
