Buffalo sauce & spices add a kick of flavor to this Chicken Alfredo Sauce recipe that only takes 15 minutes of prep, then slow cooks in the crock pot!
It’s Fri-Yay, and I couldn’t be more excited to introduce this new recipe just in time for the weekend!
This recipe was inspired by one of my favorite recipes from the “Buffalo Style“ cookbook, Buffalo Chicken Alfredo Lasagna. It was so good that about a year after the cookbook was released, I had to share it on the blog!
As I was brainstorming new recipe ideas a few weeks back, I thought about this delectable lasagna and that amazing alfredo sauce I used in the recipe. I decided to put that sauce to good use in this new crock pot recipe that is so easy and so delicious!
- 1 cup heavy cream
- ½ cup butter
- 2 cloves garlic (crushed)
- 1 tsp crushed red pepper flakes
- 1 tsp black pepper
- 1 tsp kosher salt
- ½ tsp onion powder
- 1 tsp paprika
- 1 tsp cayenne pepper
- ¼ cup buffalo sauce
- 1 ½ cups parmesan cheese (grated)
- 1 lb boneless, skinless chicken breast (sliced)
- 1 cup diced carrots
- 1 cup diced celery
- 1 cup diced red bell pepper
- 1 lb pasta (recommend fettuccine or linguine)
Add the cream to a saucepan over medium heat, cook for 2-3 minutes, then add the butter. Once the butter has melted, add the garlic, crushed red pepper, black pepper, kosher salt, onion powder, paprika, cayenne pepper and buffalo sauce. Mix well, then add the parmesan cheese.
Mix the parmesan cheese into the sauce, reduce the heat to low and simmer for 5 minutes.
In the meantime, add the chicken, carrots, celery and bell pepper to a large crock pot or slow cooker.
Pour the buffalo alfredo sauce on top.
Cook on low for 4-6 hours or on high for 2-3 hours.
Before serving, prepare the pasta according to package directions. Toss the pasta with the chicken alfredo and serve immediately.
I promise that if you love chicken alfredo and love buffalo sauce, this is going to be your new favorite dish!
It easily feeds 6-8 people, or it makes great leftovers if you’re only serving 2-4. The boyfriend and I ate it for dinner the night I made it, then ate the leftovers for the next 2 days, and seriously loved it for every meal!

♣ Vegetarian Option: Omit the chicken. The buffalo alfredo sauce is so good on its own, you could definitely do it without the chicken, and simply add extra vegetables.
