How to Make Slow Cooker Chicken Parmesan Pasta:

Tips for Crockpot Chicken Parmesan Pasta:

  • Shredding Chicken – Once chicken is cooked you can shred with forks or with a hand mixer or stand mixer. Shredding chicken with a mixer saves time.
  • Pasta – Cook pasta before adding to the slow cooker. I like to make the pasta ahead of time. This way it is already done when on cooking day.
  • Cheese – Grate cheese from hunk cheese. We recommend to grate cheese yourself as it melts better and taste better. Pre-shredded cheese as other ingredients that are not necessary.

Chicken Parm Pasta Variations:

  • Chicken – We used chicken breast in this recipe but you can use chicken thighs or chicken tenders.
  • Sauce – Crushed tomatoes is always an easy choice, but feel free to use marinara sauce or spaghetti sauce jar.
  • Seasoning – Italian Seasoning blend is always a delicious choice but you can always add in other seasoning. For a little extra spice add in a teaspoon of red pepper flakes. Fresh basil is also a great option.
  • Pasta – Feel free to use any type of pasta of your choice or what you have on hand.
  • Cheese – Mozzarella Cheese and Grated Parmesan cheese are what we used, but you can use other types of cheese. Pepper jack cheese is a great choice.
  • Dutch Oven – You can may this recipe in a dutch oven if you prefer. Make sure to stir occasionally for best results. Making in the dutch oven will take about 30 minutes to cook. This is a great option to use leftover chicken.

How to Store Leftovers:

This chicken parmesan pasta is great leftover. Place the chicken pasta mixture into an air tight container and it will last up to 3 days. The ingredients really marinate together overnight, for a tasty lunch the next day.

How to Reheat:

Place the leftovers in a microwave safe dish and reheat in 1 minute intervals. This allows for the chicken pasta to heat slowly without overheating.

Can you put Raw Chicken in the Crock Pot?

Yes, you can put raw chicken in the slow cooker. When we are making a chicken in the recipe in the slow cooker, we usually always put frozen, raw chicken in the crock pot.

There is no need to brown it before placing in the slow cooker.

Can I use Different Pasta?

Feel free to use any type of pasta when making this recipe. We also recommend bowtie pasta or penne or good option. You can also use broken spaghetti as a great option.
