This dish is creamy and delicious. Each bite is loaded with lots of Cajun seasoning, cream cheese, red peppers and more.
It all comes together to make the chicken and pasta absolutely amazing. The peppers really look gorgeous in this recipe and add such a pop of color.
Plus, the bell peppers balance out the rich and creamy sauce just perfectly. It is so yummy.

You can substitute chicken breasts or a mix of both if you prefer. The recipe is so versatile.
Try slow cooker cajun chicken fettuccine.
We love linguini pasta in this recipe but really any type will do. We have used penne pasta or even spaghetti noodles before and it was great.

Tip for making Spicy Chicken Pasta Slow Cooker:
One of our favorite time saving tips is to use a small food chopper or processor to quickly and easily chop the onions. If you do not have one of these, I highly recommend them.
They are such a time saver. I usually just chop the entire vegetable and freeze what I don’t need.
It’s so nice to be able to just take diced onion out of the freezer for recipes. This is how I meal prep. It’s so quick and easy and helps get dinner on the table fast.
