Slow Cooker Fettuccini Chicken Pasta


It snowed all day. Actually, I think it's still coming down a little. So glad I went shopping yesterday and had my meals all ready to go! 

I tossed this in the slow cooker this morning. Um, late morning by the time I finally got out of bed! I slept in, don't be jealous, I never ever do that! 

All I needed to do was toss in the pasta for the last hour and BOOM! DONE! 

Ingredients

  • 1 cup unsalted chicken broth
  • 1/2 tsp cayenne pepper
  • 1/2 tsp garlic powder
  • 1/2 tsp onion powder
  • 1/2 tsp oregano
  • 1/2 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
  • 1 1/2 tsp paprika
  • 1 tsp salt
  • 1/2 tsp pepper
  • 4 boneless skinless chicken thighs (or breasts)
  • 1 small onion, diced
  • 1/2 box of your favorite uncooked pasta (I used penne)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 3/4 cup parmesan cheese

Directions

  1. Add the chicken broth thru the pepper into the slow cooker. 
  2. Add the chicken and mix well. 
  3. Top with the onions. 
  4. Cook on low for 6 hours and then shred the chicken. It should just fall apart. 
  5. Add the heavy cream, 1/2 cup of parmesan and the pasta. Mix well. 
  6. Cook on low for 1 hour, occasionally stirring. 
  7. Top with remaining parmesan cheese and parsley if you so choose. 

Serving with warm buttered rolls would be awesome!

Note: This is a tad spicy so use less cayenne and red pepper flakes to taste. 

Enjoy!
