Chicken and Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo

My niece gave me this recipe. Let me tell you about her. The girl is 10 and is already cooking up a storm. My sister will come home from work and see her daughter finishing up pan pizza for dinner or some other delicious meal. At 5 years old, my niece would make me eggs for breakfast! 5!!! She is an excellent cook. She passed this recipe on to me. I really like this meal because you can put it in the crockpot and it is so yummy. I am not a huge fan of crockpot meals. Don't get me wrong, I love to use the crockpot. I just don't find tons of recipes for the crockpot that I am in love with. This one is definitely a keeper though! Thanks to my fabulous niece for sharing her recipes with me.

Chicken and Mushroom Fettuccine Alfredo

1 1/2 lbs. chicken breast tenders
2 8 oz. packages mushrooms
1/2 teaspoon salt
1/4 teaspoon black pepper
1/4 teaspoon garlic powder
2 8 oz. packages cream cheese, cut into chunks
1 1/2 cups grated parmesan cheese, plus additional for garnish
1 1/2 cups whole milk
1 cup (2 sticks butter), cut into chunks
1 package (1 pound) uncooked fettucine
Chopped fresh parsley (if desired)
