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!

Healthy chicken alfredo and even a chicken broccoli pasta casserole are so delicious!

How to Make Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti

  2. Remove chicken from the slow cooker and shred into pieces using 2 forks, discarding bones if necessary. Switch slow cooker to High and place chicken back. how to make Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti step by step
  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.
