Can you cook chicken alfredo in a crock pot?

You sure can! Add chicken, carrots, celery and red bell pepper to a slow cooker. Add heavy cream, butter, chicken broth, buffalo sauce, garlic powder, red pepper flakes, salt, black pepper, onion powder, paprika and cayenne pepper.

Slow cook on high for 3-4 hours, or on low for 6-8 hours.

Remove the chicken from the slow cooker, place on a cutting board, shred and add back to the slow cooker, along with the parmesan cheese and fettuccine noodles.

Place the lid back on the slow cooker and cook for an additional 30-40 minutes.

Can you put uncooked noodles in a crock pot?

For this recipe, yes you can. The noodles will cook in the hot alfredo sauce in the crock pot.

Recipe Notes

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.

Gluten Free Option: Use gluten-free pasta. Make sure the buffalo sauce is gluten free, Frank's, which is what I used in the recipe, is gluten-free.
