To ensure food safety, the FDA recommends the following as minimum internal cooking temperatures:

  • Steak and Pork 145° F (rest cooked meat, 3 minutes) |

  1. 1

    Prepare the Ingredients

    Pat diced chicken dry.

    Place slow cooker liner in slow cooker, if desired. Fold top edges in before putting on lid.

    Add chicken, flour, chicken base, seasoning blend, bacon, and 1/4 tsp. pepper to a clean slow cooker. Mix until chicken is evenly coated.

    Stir in 2 cups water until combined.

    Turn slow cooker on to low heat. Cover, and cook until chicken reaches a minimum internal temperature of 165 degrees, 4-5 hours.

  2. 2

    Make the Bread

    When 30 minutes are left to cook, preheat oven to 425 degrees. Prepare a baking sheet with foil and cooking spray.

    Separate ciabatta halves and place on prepared baking sheet, cut-sides up. Top with 4 tsp. olive oil and half the Parmesan (reserve remaining for garnish).

    Bake in hot oven until golden brown, 8-10 minutes.

    While bread bakes, finish pasta.

  3. 3

    Finish the Pasta

    Add cream cheese and peas to slow cooker. Stir until cream cheese is melted and creamy. If too thick, add water 2 Tbsp. at a time until desired consistency is reached.

    Stir in spaghetti.

  4. 4

    Finish the Dish

    Thinly slice chives.

    Plate dish as pictured on front of card, topping pasta with chives and remaining Parmesan. Bon appétit!
