How Long to Cook Chicken in Crock Pot?
We love slow cooking chicken in the crock pot. It comes out so tender and can be easily shredded if it is cooked correctly.
Most of the time we just put our frozen chicken in the crock pot and cook on low for about 6 hours. You can also cook on high for about 4 hours.
This recipe calls for chicken breast but you can even use chicken thighs . This recipe is amazing with both.
We have used chicken thighs and the family enjoyed the meal just as much. I have also used a mix of chicken thighs and chicken breasts. Do what works best for your family and what you already have.
This delicious Chicken will be amazing however you decide to serve it. If you love alfredo sauce, you will love this recipe.
- Mashed Potatoes – Try serving this dish with mashed potatoes instead of pasta. The sauce is delicious on the mashed potatoes.
- White Rice – Serve over rice for a change. You can even cook rice in the slow cooker. It is so easy to make a big batch of rice and enjoy for a quick side dish.
- Add Spinach – For another variation, try adding spinach to the dish. It adds a nice pop of color and really tastes delicious with the sun dried tomatoes.
- Low Carb Option – You can also make creamy sun dried tomato chicken paleo if you are following a strict diet. Just omit the pasta. You can also make cauliflower rice.

How to Cook on Stovetop:
This Sun Dried Tomato Chicken Pasta can easily be made on your stovetop. You can make this stovetop version with or without meat.
- Prepare Chicken – You will need to prepare chicken by cooking in the large skillet prior to adding the other ingredients. We like to sauté it with some garlic onion for flavor.
- Once chicken is prepared – Remove the chicken from the pan and add the pasta, sun dried tomatoes and broth to the pan. You will add any additional seasoning that your prefer.
- Cover and Boil – Once the ingredients are in the pan, cover the pan with a lid and let boil. Once it begins to boil stir the ingredients, then cover again and reduce heat.
- Cook Noodles – Let the noodles cook al dente for about 7 to 10 minutes. Once these ingredients have cooked, stir in the heavy cream and chicken to heat all together.

Chicken Pasta with Sun Dried Tomatoes Tips:
- Chicken – If you prefer you can use already cooked and shredded chicken. If I use pre-cooked chicken then I usually make this dish on the stovetop. This makes the perfect weeknight meal.

- Parmesan – We love using freshly grated parmesan cheese instead of the already grated.
