Crock Pot Chicken Alfredo for a crowd

Crock Pot Chicken Alfredo is a crowd pleaser.  I found this out when I made it for my daughters volleyball team last weekend.  From the youngest to the oldest everyone kept going back for more!  I’m not sure if I can technically call it a “crock pot” meal, because I didn’t actually cook the food in the crock pot. I basically  kept it warm in my crock pot.  Whatevs!  I’m calling it a crock pot meal!



While your chicken roasts, boil the cavatappi noodles, and make the creamy rich sauce then throw it all together in your crock pot on the warm setting. I kept mine on warm from 2-8pm while at a volleyball tournament.  It did get a little dry toward the end, but that didnt’ stop people from going back for more.



This recipe makes enough to feed 8 hungry volleyball players and their families so about 25 people give or take.





Do you have a hungry crowd  to feed?  Add garlic bread and a salad, some brownies for dessert and you could throw this whole meal together in an hour or less!  I know what I’m making the next time it’s my turn to feed the youth group!

Have a great weekend!  XOX Sheila

    I love the idea of using the crock pot for pasta! This would taste so satisfying right now in the middle of this big snow storm. Thanks for sharing!

    What a great make ahead dish for those large family get togethers. AND it’s a meal the kids and adults will both love- a rarity in our family. Looks great!

      Exactly! I came up with it after being assigned the “main dish” for my daughters volleyball tournament. You can only eat so much taco, and pulled pork. It ended up being a hit! Thanks for stopping by!

    This looks fantastic! Do you think it could be given as a freezer meal? Our pastor’s wife just had a baby (#5), and they love Alfredo! If it would work as freezer, what do you think would be good instructions?

      Brittney, I have never frozen this meal, so I can’t say for sure that it would hold up perfectly. My gut is that it would work. I would instructions would be to let thaw, and cook in a 375 degree oven until bubbly. Let me know how it works. Have a great weekend! Sheila

    I was wondering if I could use a different kind of noodle than cavatappi noodles?

      Sheila :

      You could use a rigatoni noodle or a large shell macaroni. Thanks for stopping in, I hope you enjoy this recipe!

    When you say ” Layer cooked noodles and roasted chicken meat in crock pot “, do you mean something like pasta/chicken/pasta/chicken or just chicken then the pasta on top ( or vice versa ) ?

      More like pasta chicken pasta chicken, so when you dig into you get a bit of all of it! Thanks for asking, I hope you enjoy!

    I am really looking forward to making this tomorrow night for a family birthday party gathering! It sounds perfect!
    Do you know of a substitute for the cube of Land o lakes Italian herb sauté express butter? I’ve been to two stores looking for it and was told they no longer make it. I’ve never used it so don’t know what I should use in its place. Thanks in advance!

      Deborah, I am so sorry for the delayed response. I think (obviously that they quick making this compound butter) I would add a tablespoon of Italian seasoning and 1 clove of garlic grated or minced very very fine. Enjoy!Sheila
