This was a go to favorite of my grandma's when we would come to visit because it's delicious, quick and can feed an army. I know I'm always looking for new recipes that can be done in the crock pot. So book mark this - you won't be disappointed! Plus, who doesn't love cheese and pasta?
Cheesy Chicken Spaghetti
1 chicken or 4 boneless chicken breasts
2 cups chicken broth
1 lb velvetta cheese
1 can cream of mushroom soup
1 stick butter
1/8 tsp garlic powder
1 tsp worcestershire sauce
1/4 cup chopped onion
1 10oz package of spaghetti
additional optional ingredients: mushrooms, water chestnuts, zucchini
- in a crock pot, add chicken breasts and chicken broth and let cook
(I use frozen chicken breasts and leave mine on low all day and by the time I get home from work they are ready. If you don't want to use a crock pot you can boil the chicken.)
- cook spaghetti as package directs
- drain spaghetti, add in shredded chicken and all other ingredients and let simmer for 30-45 minutes.
(I use the 2 cups chicken broth from the crock pot but if you want your spaghetti more 'soupy' add a little more. And because CT adoesn't like onion, I use 3 tbsp of minced onion flakes instead of the fresh chopped onion.)
Serve this with a side of bread and it makes the perfect warm fall/winter meal.
