Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo is one of my most favorite quick and easy dinners. Creamy homemade Alfredo sauce with tender slow-cooked chicken and rigatoni, all made in the Crockpot for a super delicious and easy meal.



  • 2 to 2 ½ pounds boneless, skinless raw chicken breast tenders (or thin-sliced chicken breasts)
  • 2 cups heavy cream
  • 1 ½ cups chicken broth or stock (low sodium recommended)
  • ¼ cup butter, sliced (unsalted recommended)
  • 8 ounces cream cheese, cubed
  • ½ teaspoon Italian seasoning
  • ½ teaspoon salt
  • ¼ teaspoon white or black pepper
  • ¼ teaspoon garlic powder
  • 1-pound uncooked rigatoni pasta
  • ½ cup freshly grated Parmesan cheese
  • Optional: chopped fresh parsley for garnish


  1. Place the chicken breast in a large slow cooker. Pour the heavy cream and chicken broth over the chicken breast. Add the sliced butter, cubed cream cheese, Italian seasoning, salt, pepper, and garlic powder.
  2. Cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on high for 3 hours or low for 5 hours until the chicken is cooked through and fork tender.
  3. Remove the chicken from the slow cooker and place on a large plate. Whisk the sauce in the slow cooker until smooth. Shred the chicken with forks, then add back to the slow cooker.
  4. Add the uncooked rigatoni and the Parmesan cheese. Re-cover the slow cooker with the lid and cook on high for 30 minutes or until the pasta is tender.
  5. Serve hot with fresh parsley for garnish if desired.
