Slow Cooker Chicken Spaghetti

Healthy crockpot chicken spaghetti is a true 10 hour slow cooker recipe with whole wheat pasta, tomato sauce and without velveeta. Once chicken is cooked, add uncooked noodles to the sauce and pasta will be ready by the time you are done shredding chicken.

Onions, garlic, celery and carrots with a can of tomato sauce, a few chicken pieces and good old spaghetti. This slow cooker chicken spaghetti was mind-blowingly easy and delicious like this slow cooker chicken noodle soup, too.

The recipe makes a lot. You can either cut it in half or freeze the leftovers. If you don’t have chicken, make this easy spaghetti recipe instead on the stovetop and ready in 10 minutes!

I love the combination of high-protein chicken with healthy pasta dishes like whole wheat chicken spaghetti and one-pot Tuscan chicken pasta!

How to Make Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti

  3. Add uncooked spaghetti and let the bottom part of pasta soften for a few minutes. Then you can push it all in the slow cooker. Alternatively, you could brake noodles in half to fit all in right away. Give a few stirs to separate the noodles and mix with sauce.
  4. Cover and cook for about 30 minutes (less amount for GF pasta, especially brown rice) or until pasta is cooked. Sprinkle with parsley and cheese, serve hot.

    Question: can I use pasta other than spaghetti? Like elbow macaroni, or even something larger? And if yes, what would be the changes in cooking time, etc.? Thanks!

    1. Yes, you can try! I would cook any pasta shape an initial 3o minutes, check for doneness and either go longer or ready to serve.

    This recipe is a keeper for my husband and myself. I used chicken breast, and regular tomato sauce vs low sodium, but otherwise followed the recipe ingredients (which I don’t usually do). I am going to try Rotel tomatoes and more onions next time…maybe a different noodle. Not because I didn’t like the spaghetti, but because I think the recipe is flexible enough to change around.

    My chicken was partially frozen when i put it in the crock pot, so i started out on ‘high’ for two hours, then lowered to cook the rest of the time on ‘low’.

    We will be enjoying the left overs later this week 🙂

    1. Unfortunately not. Zucchini is a veggie consisting of 90% water. It cooks in 3 mins on the skillet and will “disappear” in a slow cooker in 1 hour. For same reasons, can’t freeze it either.

    Made this tonight and it’s delicious. I haven’t made one recipe of yours that my family and I didn’t love. Thank you for the wonderful recipes.

    I made this recipe the other night and it was delicious. My husband said he preferred my old way of making spaghetti, but he ate 2 big helpings of this one and we have had it for lunch for 2 days running.
    I am so happy to have found your site, I’ve been using my instant pot regularly ever since. Thank you so much.
