Easy Crockpot Chicken and Pasta

March 23, 2022


I'm constantly on the lookout for new recipes to try out for our weeknight meals.  I noticed back in February a crockpot recipe at Jenna's blog The Painted Apron.  Jenna made a crockpot meal for chicken parmigiana sliders.  I wanted to make the sliders because they looked so good.  I didn't have any small buns so I decided to make a similar meal but with elbow macaroni instead. 


I added into the crockpot a slow cooker liner.  It's the first time I've used slow cooker liners.  It made the clean-up so easy.  You just throw out the slow cooker liner afterward and the pot stays clean.  I will be using these liners from now on.  I found my liners at the Dollar Tree store.  You can also find similar liners on Amazon.   




The process was so easy to make this crockpot chicken.  It's an easy one-dump meal in the crockpot.  Here is Jenna's recipe for the chicken sliders.  Thanks, Jenna for sharing your crockpot chicken sliders recipe.  

Below I will share my recipe for the crockpot chicken and pasta. 


CROCKPOT CHICKEN AND PASTA

INGREDIENTS:

  • 6 to 8 chicken cutlets or tenders
  • 1 jar of prepared marinara sauce
  • 1 tsp. minced garlic
  • 1 tsp. minced onion
  • Italian seasoning 
  • 1 cup of elbow macaroni
DIRECTIONS:

Spray crockpot with cooking spray or add a slow cooker liner.  Add the chicken to the pot, add seasoning, and marinara sauce.  Cook everything on a low setting for 6 hours.  About a half-hour before cooking is done add the elbow macaroni.  Finish cooking until pasta is done and cooked. 

NOTE:

You can also add at the end shredded mozzarella.  I didn't have any mozzarella otherwise I would have added that to the crockpot.
