    Instructions step by step make Crockpot Chicken Alfredo

  1.  Add chicken thighs, heavy cream, chicken broth, cream cheese, butter and seasonings to a crockpot. Cook on HIGH for 2 hours or until chicken is tender and fully cooked.
  2. Remove chicken from the slow cooker and shred. Return back to the slow cooker along with the pasta and parmesan cheese. Cook on HIGH for 30 minutes or until noodles are tender.
  3. Season with salt and pepper to taste. Serve immediately with fresh chopped parsley and extra parmesan cheese for serving, if desired. 

Storage, Reheating, and Freezing Instructions

  1. Store cooled leftover chicken Alfredo in an airtight container in your refrigerator for up to 4 days.
  2. Freeze completely cooled and cooked Alfredo in a freezer-safe container. Even better if it’s oven-safe, like an aluminum baking dish, to make reheating easier.
  3. Reheat frozen Chicken Alfredo in a preheated oven at 350 degrees for 60-90 minutes, covered, until bubbling and warmed through. Reheat thawed pasta for 30-60 minutes until warmed through. Remove lid for the last 15-30 minutes and sprinkle with mozzarella and/or parmesan cheese to let it brown. You may need to add a splash of cream or milk to the pasta to keep it from drying out.
