Crockpot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta

Crockpot Garlic Parmesan Chicken Pasta is an easy weeknight dinner recipe the family loves. We pair this with some roasted broccoli or green beans!

INGREDIENTS

  • 1 lb chicken breast

  • 1/2 tsp each of salt and pepper

  • 1 tsp each of paprika, onion powder, and Italian seasoning

  • 1 TBSP minced garlic

  • BWW Garlic Parmesan sauce

  • 1 jar of Alfredo sauce

  • 1 16 oz box of pasta

  • 1/4 cup of Parmesan cheese

  • 1 cup of shredded mozzarella

How To Make

To make the garlic parmesan chicken pasta, start by getting out your crockpot and spraying it with cooking spray.

Add one pound of chicken breast to the crockpot and season that with salt, pepper, onion powder, paprika, and Italian seasoning. My family doesn’t think this is salty, but depending on the alfredo sauce you use if you want to omit the salt initially you can always season with salt to taste after the dish is cooked.

Next, add minced garlic on top of the chicken.

Then I added just enough of the Buffalo Wild Wings Garlic Parmesan sauce to the chicken to cover it. Spread the sauce out evenly over the chicken. This sauce does have a bit of kick to it and kind of a strong flavor. I recommend starting with just enough to cover the chicken and you can always add more at the end!

Cook on low for about 4-6 hours. In my crockpot the chicken cooks in about four hours, but all crockpots cook differently. Check the chicken with an internal meat thermometer to make sure it reaches at least 165 degrees.

Once the chicken is cooked either shred or cube up the chicken. I prefer to take the chicken out of the crockpot and cut it into cubes, but either works!

Boil 16 oz of your favorite pasta according to the directions on the package.

Add the chicken back into the crockpot and add shredded Parmesan and shredded mozzarella cheese.

Pour in one jar of your favorite alfredo sauce and stir everything together well.

Once the pasta has cooked, drain it, and add it to the crockpot. Give everything a good stir and it should be ready to eat!

This garlic parmesan chicken pasta is good with any kind of veggie. We usually like roasted broccoli, green beans, or a salad!

      1. I know you said to use enough of the garlic sauce to cover the chicken, but could you please give me an approximate actual measurement, like how many cups of the sauce? I’m not a good cook, and I need specifics! Also, what size jar of Alfredo sauce? Thanks!

          I used about half the jar of the BW sauce and most of the jar of a 16 ounce Alfredo sauce. I didn’t have a full jar so I just went with it. lol. The BW sauce has a kick. I think a full jar would mellow it a bit. I was going to add Broccoli but had some sun dried tomatoes left over and some fresh spinach. Added those. Yummy!

  1. Can I put the pasta in the crockpot to cook along with the chicken? Looking to save a pot to wash.

    1. You’ve probably already made this but, I just did. Added the dry uncooked pasta about two hours before serving on low.
      I did make my own Alfredo and then just added enough chicken broth to cover the noodles.

  2. 5 stars
    I’m practically useless in the kitchen, but this was so easy even I could do it and it turned out great!

  3. Getting ready to make this but you don’t have what size jar of Alfredo sauce. Can you please let me know what size you used? Thank you!

    I doubled the chicken, used a whole bottle of BWW sauce, 2 jars of Alfredo, doubled cheese, 24 oz. Pasta. It was incredible! I fed 6 adults, with plenty for lunches. Thanks!

    HOLY SMOKES!!!!! Amazing and wish I had made it sooner! It has a tiny bit of a kick but it’s perfectly balanced with chicken to cream to cheese ratio! My picky husband approved!

  6. Hey Luke. Any reason why you couldn’t add everything in at the beginning? Instead of waiting for chicken to cook and then adding the rest of the ingredients in. Just curious – really wanting this to be a recipe that I can dump everything in before work!

  7. This looks delicious! What is BWW garlic parm sauce? I’m assuming a sauce that you cannot get in Canada which would be my luck lol

    1. Buffalo wild wings sauce but im sure any garlic parm sauce should be fine
      We actually found one at Aldi’s that we absolutely loved but they don’t seem to carry it anymore!
