Crock Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta Recipe

Our family loves chicken recipes and I am always looking for new and easy ways to serve it. This Creamy Cajun Chicken Pasta is a new favorite and it is so easy!

The dish has the perfect amount of heat but not so much that the kids can’t enjoy it. It is perfect for the entire family!

Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Pasta Bake is delicious and budget friendly!

This recipe uses chicken so it is very frugal. The pasta also stretches the meat and helps you to feed a large family on a budget.

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.

Cajun Chicken pasta penne is always a hit! Fettuccine is another great options for this dish. Your family will love it!

Ingredients:

  • Chicken Breasts 
  • Heavy Whipping Cream 
  • Chicken Broth 
  • Butter 
  • Cajun Seasoning 
  • Garlic Powder 
  • Penne Pasta, uncooked 
  • Grated Parmesan Cheese

You need a good crock pot for this One Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta.

If you are in the market for something new, I really love my Ninja cooker.  This cooking system is unique because you can brown meat in the same pot and then slow cook it!

It is so handy to just have the one pan to clean. It has become of my favorite kitchen appliances.

I also really like this crockpot as well.  I use this all the time and it’s great.

My favorite feature is that you can lock the lid down. This is awesome for when you need to take the crockpot somewhere.

I often use the slow cooker to take dishes to potluck events and this feature is amazing! There are several others on sale here.

Another favorite is this programmable crock pot  for when I am am not at home all day. I love coming home to a nice meal ready and waiting!

I also like to use crock pot liners to make clean up a breeze. These are worth every penny and save a ton of time.

How to make Crock Pot Cajun Chicken Pasta:

  • Add the chicken, heavy whipping cream, chicken broth, butter, garlic powder and cajun seasoning into a 6 quart crock pot. 
  • Cover and cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours until the chicken is cooked through (has an internal temperature of 165 degrees F). 
  • Remove the chicken from the crock pot and shred or dice it into large pieces.  
  • Whisk the sauce in the crock pot.  Return the chicken back to the crock pot and stir in the uncooked pasta. 
  • Cover and cook on high for 20-30 minutes until the pasta is tender and cooked through. 
  • Then stir in the parmesan cheese. Cover for 5 minutes and allow the cheese to melt. 
  • Serve warm and enjoy!

While the pasta is cooking, add the cream cheese to the crock pot and make sure it is melted and mixed into the chicken thoroughly.

Serve over pasta and dinner is ready to enjoy!

We love to sprinkle more Parmesan cheese on top of the pasta. Yum!

This recipe tastes really delicious but it requires very little work to put together. You can easily enjoy this chicken pasta dish even on busy weeknights.

What can you serve with Cajun Chicken Pasta Bake?

We often serve a simple salad with this meal. It is quick and easy and goes great with the pasta.

You could also try Roasted Green Beans or learn how to steam broccoli in the microwave for a super easy veggie side dish.

Keep it simple and enjoy!

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.

Try Slow Cooker Cajun Chicken Alfredo Recipe!

This is one of those really amazing meals that your family will think took forever but really was so simple. The slow cooker makes dinner time a breeze.

It is the best one pot pasta meal and the seasoned chicken is so tender and flavorful from being slow cooked. It is such an easy dinner!

If you have kids that are hesitant to eat the bell peppers, you might be surprised. The alfredo sauce is so tasty and it makes it easy to get kids to eat their veggies. 🙂

This meal is really so yummy and requires such little effort to prepare. You can get dinner on the table with hardly any work.

If you need an amazing meal that you can enjoy even on busy weeknights, this is a delicious recipe to try. Your family will go crazy over it!

  1. I love pasta but carbs don’t love me. Is there a way to have a meal like this without the after effects of carbs

  2. You could make the chicken and sauce and serve over spaghetti squash or zucchini noodles. Thank you!
