Yield: 6 People

Ingredients

  • 1 tbsp Oil
  • 1 package White mushrooms, Cleaned, Diced, 8 oz. package
  • 1-2 Chicken breasts, Large, I only used 1 large chicken breast because I wanted a stronger mushroom flavor
  • 2 jars Alfredo sauce, 15 oz. each
  • 1/2 cup Condensed cream of mushroom soup , Can be replaced with cream of chicken soup
  • 1 tsp Italian seasoning
  • 1 tsp Garlic powder
  • Salt, To taste
  • Pepper, to taste
  • 1 pound Spaghetti , Boiled and drained
  • 1/4 cup Parmesan cheese, Freshly grated or shredded
  • 1 tbsp Basil, Or parsley, Fresh, Roughly chopped, For topping
  • 1/4 tsp Red chili flakes, Optional, For topping

Instructions 

  • Heat oil in a large nonstick pan over medium-high heat.
  • Add mushrooms and saute them until excess water is evaporated and they are golden brown.
  • Transfer this to a large greased crockpot (6 quart or larger).
  • Add chicken breasts, alfredo sauce, condensed cream of mushroom soup, Italian seasoning, garlic powder, salt, pepper.
  • Mix until combined.
  • Cover and cook on Low heat for 2.5-3 hours or until chicken is cooked through.
  • Remove chicken breasts and use a sharp knife to cut them into small cubes OR use two forks to shred them.
  • Add the meat back into the slow cooker and mix everything gently.
  • Mix in boiled/ drained pasta.
  • Top it all off with parmesan cheese, fresh basil and red chili flakes.
  • Serve immediately and enjoy!

Notes

  • Read all my tips above.
  • Tastes best when served immediately but leftovers can be stored in a sealed container in the fridge for up to 2 days. A splash of water or broth may be needed when reheating in the microwave because the pasta would have absorbed a lot of the sauce and become thick.
