  • Cook Time: 3 hours
  • Total Time: 3 hours 5 minutes
  • Yield: 6 1x
  • Category: Chicken
  • Method: Slow Cooker
  • Cuisine: American


  • 1.5 pounds boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • 3 cups heavy cream
  • 3 cups chicken broth
  • 4 ounces cream cheese
  • 4 tablespoons butter
  • 2 tablespoons minced garlic
  • 2 teaspoons onion powder
  • 1 teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • Salt and pepper, to taste
  • 1/2 cup water
  • 16 ounces uncooked penne or ziti pasta
  • 1/2 cup shredded parmesan cheese
  • Chopped parsley


  1. Add chicken breasts, heavy cream, chicken broth, cream cheese, butter, garlic, onion powder and Italian seasoning into your slow cooker. Add a pinch of salt and pepper. Stir to combine and cover
  2. Cook on low for 4-5 hours, or on high for 2-3 hours
  3. Transfer the chicken to a cutting board or plate. Stir the alfredo sauce in the slow cooker for a few minutes so the cream cheese incorporates more until smooth. It’s normal for it to be clumpy until stirred in well
  4. Then add the water and uncooked pasta and stir. Place the cover back onto the slow cooker and switch the knob to high if it isn’t already. Cook for 20-30 minutes, until pasta is tender
  5. While the pasta is cooking, shred the chicken. 5 minutes before the cook time is up, mix in the shredded chicken and parmesan
  6. Serve garnished with fresh cracked black pepper, chopped parsley and more shredded parmesan


For Vegetarian Alfredo Pasta:

  • Omit chicken
