Recipe: Easy Crock Pot Chicken Pasta

A few weeks ago I came across this recipe on Facebook.  It looked easy and tasty.  Plus, I love my crockpot.  I gave it a shot and both Mike and I really liked it.  It reminded me a lot of tuna noodle casserole, but with chicken and cream of chicken soup.

For an easy switch up, I might try cream of mushroom soup or try adding peas to it.

I can't wait to try this one again!

Easy Crockpot Chicken Pasta


4 chicken breasts
1 packet ranch dressing mix
4oz cubed cream cheese
2 cans cream of chicken soup
2 cups penne pasta
Bacon pieces (if desired)
Shredded parmesan cheese (if desired)


Put chicken in crockpot.  Pour soup over chicken and then sprinkle with ranch dressing mix.  No need to stir.  Cook on low for 4 hours.  15 minutes before done, add cream cheese.  Do not stir.  Cover and continue cooking until cheese softens and melts, about 15-20 minutes.  Remove chicken.  Add pasta to sauce and stir.  Cover and turn off.  Shred chicken with a fork or cut into small pieces (I shredded it).  Add to crockpot and stir.  Serve.  Sprinkle with bacon pieces or parmesan cheese if desired

  1. I feel like I've had this before! I used to be so good at marking the recipes that I've tried, and now I've just lost track!
