Making chicken in the crock pot is the best way to use it for different recipes. Shredding chicken can easily be shredded by using a Kitchen aid Mixer. Shredding the chicken with a mixer saves you so much time.
The chicken comes out perfectly shredded and can be used in many different ways. We like to make a batch of shredded chicken at the beginning of the week and use it in different recipes.

Tips for Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo:

- Chopped Parsley – Before serving we like to sprinkle some chopped parsley over the top of the cooked chicken alfredo.
- Cooked Chicken – If you already have cooked chicken, this is a great recipe to use it in. We love cooking a bunch of chicken at the beginning of the week and use it in many different recipes.
- Add in Broccoli. If you are trying to get your family to eat more vegetables, I love to add in chopped broccoli. I make sure that it is cut in small pieces so it is easy to eat.
Can you keep chicken Alfredo warm in a crock pot?
Yes, you can use the warm setting on the slow cooker to keep the alfredo sauce
- Vegetables – This crock pot recipe is easy to stir in some spinach, kale, or broccoli.

- Add in Bacon – If we have bacon already cooked, you can also mix in some chopped bacon. It pairs well with the chicken.
- Heavy Cream – To make it creamier, you can add in heavy cream and chicken broth.
- Garlic Powder – For added flavor, you can add in a teaspoon of garlic powder.

Hi carrie, is it one packet of Italian dressing mix?
Brandy – Yes, it’s 1 packet.
If you used frozen chicken and used the instant pot instead, what would be your cooking time?
Tricia – I would cook this with frozen chicken in the instant pot for 25 minutes. Thank you!
If we can’t find the seasoning pack will regular Italian seasoning work???
Yes, I think that would work great!
Can you add the uncooked pasta into the crockpot with everything else so it all cooks together? And, would you cook the pasta for the whole length of time or would you add it in (uncooked) towards the end? Thanks!
Which cream cheese is better to use? Brick or tub?
are any of these meals for 2 people ?
Can u use unfrozen chicken breast in crock pot and if so how long? I only have 2 pieces.
Can u use chicken that isn’t frozen in crock pot and if so how long? I only have 2 pieces.
I made this for dinner tonight. Delicious! This is going in the rotation!
I use the brick option for this recipe. Thank you!
If you were going to use a jar Alfredo do you just do the Italian seasoning on top of the chicken and are the noodles made so seperately
Is it ok to use frozen chicken in the crockpot?
We haven’t had a problem using frozen chicken
Is this 2 small cans of cream of chicken? 10.5 ounces
Can I use chicken tenderloins instead of the breast?
Yes that should work great.
Did I do it wrong? I just dumped everything on the chicken…I didn’t cut up the cream cheese block and I added the water like it says and when it got done it’s not a sauce it’s just liquid with cream cheese chunks in it? What should I do different?
After the cook time, I remove the chicken and whisk the sauce ingredients until they are thoroughly combined and then add the chicken back in. Thanks.
May I use chicken broth instead of water to give it more flavor?
Yes you can. That would taste great!
Love the freezer crockpot meals. So easy. A friend gave me a couple in ziplock bags after my second daughter was born. Brilliant. We’ve been hooked ever since. This one we use at least once a month. My picky eaters love it. I add broccoli or edamame to it.
I was wondering if you could use the lower fat cream cheese?
