Cheesy Chicken Crockpot Spaghetti - The Healthy (er) Version

You've seen that recipe for cheesy chicken spaghetti all over Pinterest. You pinned it. You've debated making it. But you don't. Why? Because this dish is loaded with calories. (Did you know that one box of Velveeta Cheese is over 2,500 calories?! It's also very high in fat and sodium!) And you know what calories means...fat. 

Here is my remix of Cheesy Chicken Crockpot Spaghetti, the Healthy (ish) Version. 


16 oz of WHOLE GRAIN dry spaghetti

1 Tomato
1 Onion 
1 cup of Mushrooms

1 lb. of Cheese- Instead of Velveeta like you would normally use, choose a low-fat, natural cheese. (If your really want Velveeta, opt for the Velveeta Light). 

3 Chicken Breasts (Thawed)

1 can of fat-free Cream of Mushroom Soup 
1 can of fat-free Cream of Chicken Soup

3/4 cup of water


1.  Cook the spaghetti according to the package instructions

2.  Chop up the chicken breasts into desired size 

3.  Dice Tomato and Onion. However much you want to add is up to you depending on preference

4. Slice Mushrooms

5. Spray Crockpot with Olive Oil cooking spray 

6. Add all of the ingredients to the crockpot, including cooked spaghetti, chopped chicken, cheese, soup, water, tomato, onion, mushrooms

7. Mix thoroughly

8. Season with salt and pepper to taste.

Cook on High for 2-4 hours, or Low 4-6 hours. 

I recommend that you stir occasionally to avoid the edges browning and tasting funky. 

Make sure that the chicken is done by pulling out a piece and checking the inside and/or the temp. (Minimum 165 degree F)

Serve and ENJOY knowing you are eating a healthier version of cheesy chicken crockpot spaghetti, so you can splurge on cookies or chocolate after your meal!

Prometheus: To See or Not to See? 

Warning: There might be a few spoilers, but don't worry, nothing big. I recently watched this movie in theaters, and I thought it would only be convenient to start off this new blog with a review. This isn't some well-worded, crafty, professional review. This is from one crazy person to another, real thoughts, real opinions. 

The whole movie is about two explorers who think they are summoned to find their creators.. or is it? The first thing I have to say about Prometheus is:

1. What the hell is this movie about? 
Is it about these explorers, the creators, or the freakishly human (and good-looking, might I add) robot? I couldn't tell. Just when I thought it was following some characters, it would begin to feel as if the movie wasn't really about them. Hmmm. 

2. Too predictable. 
So anyways, these people go on a mysterious planet into this large dome construction and you know what happens, like any alien movie, people die, blah blah. It was way too predictable, in my opinion. I sat there the whole time and told my husband what was about to happen, or vice versa (and usually I HATE when he does that!) 

3. Alien abortion. 
I'm not sure if I need to elaborate. The most trifling, appalling, down right disturbing operation takes place that seriously made me want to upchuck my way too salty popcorn. Was that supposed to be amusing? Were we supposed to enjoy watching that? 

4. Wrinkly man.  
Then, out of nowhere, the plot takes a wild "spin" and a wrinkly old man comes into the picture and now the movie is about him. Did I mention he just magically appeared on the ship in outer space.. Oh wait, he was "sleeping" the whole time. Which brought up another big question, why did he have to hide the whole time? Why couldn't he just go along on the journey with them? Wouldn't that make more sense? 

5. The ending.
I'm not going to spoil the ending for you, really because the ending is already spoiled. But I guess if you decide to watch this movie, you'll find out for yourself. Let's just say this wasn't one of those movies that you walk out of all chirpy and happy and wanting to go for drinks with your friends. Instead, you leave with a "Screw the earth!" attitude and you only want to go home, turn the lights down low, and mourn for the old man's wrinkles. 

There ya have it. My personal opinion of the movie Prometheus. Which I regretfully wasted $9.50 to go see. Instead of seeing this movie, go buy some wrinkle cream, which is really the only thing you will be thinking about when this movie is over anyways. 

Then again, this review is from the perspective of a crazy person, so maybe you will enjoy it.
