Chicken Alfredo Made Easy!

Our family loves a good pasta dish. Chicken alfredo is by far one of the kids’ favs!! It is so creamy and delish and always a hit with the entire family.

This crock pot chicken Alfredo has all of that yummy goodness we crave, but it SO easy to make! It is a perfect make ahead dinner for those busy weeknights when you have all the things. You know what I’m talking about, right?!

I like to do make ahead meals on those nights where everyone is coming and going at different times. They can grab dinner when they are home and I feel good because it’s not always cereal. 🙂

This yummy crock pot meal is sure to make your go-to dinner list!

Making crockpot chicken alfredo

CHICKEN. Heat the olive oil in a medium skillet over medium high heat. Season the chicken with salt and pepper on both sides. Add the chicken to the skillet and cook 2-3 minutes per side, until browned but not cooked through. Add the chicken to the crock pot.

SAUCE. Mix together the whole milk, chicken broth, and garlic, and pour it over the chicken. Cook on high heat for 2-3 hours, or low heat for 4-5 hours.

PASTA. Remove the chicken from the pot and cover with foil to keep warm. Add the fettuccine to the crock pot and stir to coat in the sauce. Cover and cook on high heat for 30 minutes, until tender. Stir in the heavy cream and parmesan cheese.

SERVE. Slice the chicken and add it to the fettuccine in the crock pot. Serve sprinkled with parmesan and fresh parsley, if desired.

Tips + Variations

To thicken the sauce you can add a quick cornstarch slurry you can also add extra cream or parmesan cheese.  

  • Slurry: in a separate bowl add 1 tablespoon cornstarch + 1 tablespoon cold water. Add it into the sauce and stir.

Variations:

  • Add veggies such as broccoli florets or asparagus
  • Julienne cut sun dried tomatoes on top
  • Top it off with crumbled bacon after it is done cooking

Storing Info

STORE leftovers in an airtight container in the fridge for 2-4 days.

FREEZE chicken alfredo but the sauce can sometimes get a bit grainy and noodles a little extra soft, but it’s still a good option to preserve leftovers for later. 

For best results reheat on the stovetop if needed add a little extra milk to help smooth out the sauce. You can also reheat in the microwave.
