Yep – another slow cooker recipe!! I told you, my slow cooker has been getting lots of use lately!

And just because I’m curious – since it seems like slow cookers are becoming all the rage again, how often do you actually use your slow cooker? Just curious….

This is a change up on what I have learned is a pretty popular slow cooker recipe. The original calls for cream-of-something soup, and some pre-mixed spices. But this one is completely from scratch! (Except the pasta, I guess. I’m not venturing into making my own fettuccine right now!) Yes, the ingredient list looks quite long, but I’m guessing that you probably have most of the items on hand. And hey – if you really want to cut down on the number of ingredients and shave a few minutes off the prep time, feel free to substitute in a couple cans of your favorite cream-of-something soup!

Slow Cooker Chicken Fettuccine
Prep time
Total time
A slow cooked creamy Italian chicken, served over fettuccine noodles. You can make it even easier by substituting the from-scratch sauce for a can of condensed cream of chicken soup.
Serves: 6 servings
  • 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts
  • ¼ cup butter
  • ½ tablespoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon dried parsley
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • ⅛ teaspoon dried oregano
  • ¼ teaspoon dried basil
  • ¼ teaspoon paprika
  • ¼ teaspoon celery salt
  • 1½ teaspoons sugar
  • ⅛ teaspoon pepper
  • ½ teaspoon dry mustard
  • 1 teaspoon olive oil
  • 1 tablespoon chopped onion
  • 1 clove garlic, finely chopped
  • ¾ cup chicken broth
  • ¾ cup milk, divided
  • 1 teaspoon chopped fresh parsley
  • ⅛ teaspoon lemon pepper
  • ⅓ cup all-purpose flour
  • 8 oz cream cheese
  • ¼ cup water
  • 1 lb fettuccine noodles, prepared to al dente
  1. Put the chicken breasts in the bottom of a slow cooker. Place the butter on top of the chicken.
  2. In a small bowl, combine the salt, parsley, garlic powder, onion powder, oregano, basil, paprika, celery salt, sugar, pepper and dry mustard. Mix together, then sprinkle over the chicken.
  3. Cook the chicken on low for 4 hours, or until it is cooked through. Shred the chicken and return it to the slow cooker.
  4. Meanwhile, make the sauce: In a saucepan, heat the olive oil. Cook the onion until translucent, about 3-5 minutes. Add in the garlic and cook an additional minute. Whisk in the chicken broth and ¼ cup of the milk. Add in the parsley and lemon pepper and let it simmer for 1-2 minutes.
  5. In a small bowl, whisk together the flour with the remaining ½ cup of milk. Add into the broth mixture and whisk until there are no lumps. Cook until thickened.
  6. Add the sauce to the slow cooker with the chicken. Add in the cream cheese and the water, stir to combine, and cook an additional hour, or until the cream cheese is melted and all of the ingredients are combined. Serve over prepared fettuccine noodles.

    I’m horrible at remembering that I own a slow cooker. Even worse at figuring out what to put in it so I love picking up tips from other bloggers. ๐Ÿ™‚ I never would have thought to do alfredo sauce in there….So, my question is, how was it? Just as good as the stuff you slave over the stove to make with a bottle of cream and a container of cheese? ๐Ÿ™‚

  2. Cassie says:

    I know that I would love this. You had me at “cream cheese”! ๐Ÿ™‚

    I use my slow cooker at least a few times a month. Most often I use it to cook up a big batch of chicken breasts to shred and freeze for upcoming meals. A few weeks ago I made a cake in the slow cooker, which was interesting and surprisingly delicious!

    This would be perfect for my busy class days. Thanks!

  4. Mallika says:

    Fettuccine is one of my favorites among pastas. I drown them in Arabiatta sauce. Your looks drool worthy!

  5. Bev Weidner says:

    Oh, my heart has stopped. This is screaming at me, MAKE ME THIS WEEKEND FOR THE LOOOOOOVE.


  6. Magen says:

    This looks great. I’ll definitely have to try it. I use my slow cooker 2 or 3 times a month. Usually it’s on a Sunday.
    One question though. How much butter do we put on top of chicken?

  7. Love that you can make this in the slow cooker! This is one of my husband’s favorite dishes! Thanks for sharing!

  8. Kim says:

  9. I love this condensed soup free version of this recipe! I absolutely love my slow cooker and probably use it at least once a week. In fact I have something in my crock right now!

  10. Loving these unique slow cooker recipes! I’ll let you know when I try this! Thanks for sharing your recipe! Yum!

  11. Rachel says:

    Looks good! I’ll have to try this one! I use my slow cooker once or twice a month. I’d use it more if I had more good recipes for it!

  12. Joanne says:

    I actually RARELY use my slow cooker anymore…it has to be a really killer recipe to get me to take it out…and this looks like it fits the bill!

  13. YUM! I love love love pasta dishes and making sauce in the slow cooker sounds absolutely awesome!

  14. how did you get that little pin it button at the top of the post? I have people pin some of my recipes but that would make it even easier for them.

    Also, I love using my slow cooker but don’t use it that often. Maybe 2 times a month. This fettucine looks great though!

  15. Kim says:

    This time of year I get my slow cooker out at least once a week. Plus, I just got a new cookbook, The Slow Cook Book, and it’s full of insane and unique recipes that I’m dying to try.

    This looks delicious and is definitely one the family would love.

  16. Lauren B. says:

    Ok, this recipe is brilliant! Must make this….

  17. Maris says:

    This looks great and I can’t believe you made it in the slow-cooker! How delicious.

  18. Mrs. L says:

    I rarely use my slow cooker in the summer, but once fall comes around, I start using it 3-4 times a month. I too, have a new slow cooker cookbook to try!

  19. Never would have made a pasta sauce like this in a slow cooker – great recipe!

  20. newlywed says:

    Wow. Looks great, and I love, love, love finding new slow cooker recipes. I use mine a few times a month, but would love to use it more.

  21. Love slow cooker recipes…the chicken must have tasted really tender and succulent.

  22. julia says:

    I actually used my sow cooker yesterday for salsa chicken. I use it, maybe about once a week. Love it! Haven’t tried pasta in it yet, this looks so good, it might just convince me too ๐Ÿ˜‰

  23. Vivienne says:

    ive never used a slow cooker before..i think. this is the first time ive seen a pasta sauce made using slow cooker…the sauce looks so dreamy…must’ve been the tastiest fettuccine ๐Ÿ˜€

  24. I already have my slow cooker out and this might the the fall’s first dish in it. This is perfect, I love everything about it!

  25. kita says:

    I saw this today and drooled. I just drug out my slow cooker and its smaller cousin the other day and are pep talking them for the fall season. This is a must make!

  26. Chelsea says:

    OK, I made this tonight and it was DELISH!! A big hit with the family too. My chicken only took 2 hours to cook (from frozen) so the cook time for me was not quite as long as in the recipe. It was also a bit salty, so I might cut back on the salt next time. The chicken was so good, I had to stop myself from eating it straight from the pot before I added the sauce. I’m glad I waited though, because the finished product was great!! Thanks so much for sharing the recipe, I will be making this again!!

  27. I probably use my slow cooker 2-3 times a month – maybe more in the winter time. This sounds wonderful – lots of good flavors going on here!

  28. janis says:

    Just wondering, are you supposed to dump out the liquid leftover from cooking the chicken in the crockpot or are you supposed to keep it in once you add the sauce & put the shredded chicken back in? Thanks.

  29. Mandee says:

    Have this in the crockpot right now! I have made it twice and it is so delicious my husband and I were both eating it straight out of the crockpot! Lol I’m making a green salad to go with it tonight. If you haven’t tried, its a MUST!! ๐Ÿ™‚

  30. Melissa says:

    Looks super yummy but the recipe is missing ๐Ÿ™ I was hoping to make this for dinner tonight.
