Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo

My one-pot chicken alfredo is one amongst my hottest recipes, and one amongst our family favorites. I’ve been functioning on a slow cookware version for a moment and I’m thus proud of however it clad. I love this slow cookware chicken alfredo instruction as a result of there's no pre cookery and therefore the alimentary paste cooks within the slow cookware too. It’s rich, filling and perfectly creamy.

The best part of this recipe is that the alfredo sauce is completely homemade. Jarred alfredo sauce simply cannot vie with the wonderful flavor of homemade.


Whether you call it a Crock Pot recipe or a slow cooker recipe, this is the perfect way to make an easy family-friendly dinner! Start with a quick sear on the chicken, don’t cook the chicken all the way through. Just add some color to the chicken, this will equate to flavor in the Crockpot Chicken Alfredo.


This homemade alfredo is so simple! Once you have put the chicken breasts in the slow cooker, add heavy cream, low sodium chicken broth, whole garlic cloves, butter and salt and pepper. The chicken breasts will simmer all day in the homemade cream sauce and both will add even more flavor to the other.


I’ve tried many slow cookware recipes with alimentary paste and haven't been happy with the feel. It just turns into a mushy mess.
The secret to productive alimentary paste within the slow cookware is to feature the alimentary paste at the top. It just doesn’t need to simmer for hours.
In this recipe, I add the pasta for the last thirty minutes of cooking and cook it on high along with a cup of hot water. Since slow cooker times can vary so much, you may want to check yours at the twenty minute mark just to make sure it doesn’t over cook.

Use freshly grated parmesan cheese for best results. I like to use this microplane to grate my parmesan. Shredded store bought parmesan cheese has additives that keep it from clumping in the bag. This can also keep the parmesan from melting smoothly in alfredo recipes.
