One of my favorite things about fall is being able to start eating soup. Lots of soup. I could honestly eat soup every day all fall and winter and I would be completely satisfied! This soup is very simple which is perfect for even my pickiest daughter, and the flavor is incredible. My kids are always super busy in the fall and it is so much easier to get dinner on the table if I use my slow cooker and do most of my dinner prep in the mornings.

Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Soup is high in protein and even higher in flavor. Even my picky kids request this soup on a regular basis. Trying to eat less carbs? Just leave the noodles out!

ingredients in chicken alfredo soup

Ingredients in Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Soup

Chicken – Use 3 boneless, skinless chicken breasts. Most of the cooking time for this recipe is just for cooking the chicken, but if you are short on time, you can bake the chicken or use a rotisserie chicken instead (directions below).

Garlic – Lots of garlic in this recipe to give the soup that classic alfredo flavor! You’ll need about 4 tablespoons of garlic, so you’ll need about 8 cloves of garlic or you can cheat like I do and use minced garlic straight out of the jar! I always keep a jar of minced garlic in the refrigerator to save on time.

Butter – Can’t leave the butter out!

Chicken bouillon – You’ll need 3 teaspoons of the powdered bouillon or 3 bouillon cubes.

Water

Flour – An important ingredient for thickening the soup to just the right consistency.

Pasta – Bow-tie pasta is my favorite in this recipe, but any small pasta will work.

Milk – 2% is what I have in my fridge and what I use in this recipe, but you can use any type of milk.

Whipping cream – The recipe calls for 2 cups and it really does make the soup so creamy and delicious. If you’re trying to cut calories, you can skip the cream and just add more milk, but your soup will be thinner. Or you can just swap out part of the cream for more milk.

Mozzarella and parmesan cheese – Use shredded cheese for best results so that that the cheese can melt quickly. You can also just use an Italian blend if you prefer.

What type of pasta to use in chicken alfredo soup?

I usually use bow-tie noodles in this soup, but any small pasta works great. Miniature shells, elbow, cavatappi, fusili, rotini, small penne….they all work great. Make sure to cook the noodles slightly less than package directions as they will continue to cook in the soup a little bit and you don’t want them to get mushy or over-done.

How to make soup on the stove

I like using the slow cooker for this recipe (mostly for cooking the chicken), but you can easily make this soup recipe on the stovetop. Bake the chicken before placing it in a large pot and then proceeding with the recipe as written, beginning with step 3. Just simmer the soup for about 30-60 minutes over medium-low heat before serving.

Best baked chicken recipe

I love how well chicken cooks in the slow cooker, but if you are short on time and need to speed up the process, here is my favorite method for baking chicken in the oven.

Preheat the oven to 400°. Spray a 9X13 pan with non-stick cooking spray. Use 1-2 tablespoons of olive oil and brush all over the sides of the chicken breasts. Sprinkle one teaspoon of salt and one teaspoon of Italian seasoning evenly over the chicken. Bake for 22-25 minutes or until the middle of the chicken reaches a temp of 165°.

Let the chicken rest for about 5 minutes before dicing or shredding and adding to the soup. Or you can really cheat and just use a shredded rotisserie chicken!

CROCKPOT CHICKEN ALFREDO LASAGNA - Butter with a Side of Bread


Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Lasagna packed with vegetables, tender chicken and 3 kinds of cheese! Easy crockpot lasagna recipe perfect for busy weeknights!

Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo Lasagna recipeWith summer comes hot temperatures and the desire to order take out. But when you realize how simple and fast this dinner is to prepare you may just put that phone down and enjoy a home cooked meal instead. As a perk, your slow cooker doesn’t use as much energy or heat up the house as much when used! Bonus!

Making Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Alfredo

I’ve seen several recipes for crockpot lasagna, but to be honest, most had mixed reviews. Not only that, but I wanted an Alfredo lasagna where I could add in some veggies from the garden. So after reading a ton of different recipes and comments, I came up with this easy recipe and oh my heavens~ it’s a winner!! It’s so delicious and the noodles and vegetables were cooked perfectly. It’s not dry and has a wonderful flavor. It came together really quickly and I have a meal’s worth of leftovers, which is a bonus! My kids and husband were all raving about it, so it will certainly go into our normal rotation of meals.

Crockpot Chicken Alfredo Lasagna recipeCan I Use a Rotisserie Chicken?

If you have a rotisserie chicken on hand, by all means, use it (that’s what I did!) I love how the chicken comes precooked and at a great price. I love buying them to help stretch meals by taking and shredding the meat on the bones.

What’s Better Ricotta Cheese or Cottage Cheese for Lasagna?

Cottage cheese is a great option for those on a diet and wanting a healthier alternative. Cottage cheese may not have the same texture but it does have a similar flavor and at a fraction of the calories and fat.

How to make slow cooker chicken alfredo lasagnaHow to Make Crockpot Chicken Vegetable Alfredo

Slice your vegetables and dice the chicken.

Combine the ingredients for both the sauce mixture and the cheese mixture in separate bowls t=so that they’re ready to go.

To layer your lasagna, the noodles will be divided into 3 portions. You can set them into 3 groups now to make it easier when putting it all together.

The sauce mixture will also be divided into thirds.

The cheese mixture will just be divided in half, as will your vegetables. It’s okay to overlap the noodles- just try and cover as much as the crockpot as you can. I usually lay out a few, and then brake the others into pieces to fill in the gaps.

Arrange everything close to your crockpot so it’s easy to grab and use.

How to make slow cooker chicken alfredo lasagnaHere is how I layered my lasagna:

First place ⅓ of the sauce on bottom and top that with ⅓ of the noodles. Add ½ of the cheese mixture and top it with ½ of the vegetables. Add ⅓ of the noodles and follow it with ⅓ of the sauce. Add in the remaining 1/2 of the vegetables and ½ of the cheese mixture followed by the last ⅓ of the noodles and sauce mixture.

Once you have everything layered in your crockpot, turn the heat onto low, put the lid on and cook it for 3 hours.

Once 3 hours have passed, take a fork and make sure the top layer of noodles are all submerged in the dish and they aren’t drying out. {Push it down a little if you need to.} Add the remaining 1/2 cup of mozzarella and Parmesan cheeses to the top of the lasagna. Replace lid and continue cooking for another 30 minutes.

Turn the crockpot off and then let it sit for about 20 minutes or so before serving. {This allows the lasagna to soak up more liquid and helps the pieces hold together better.} Cut and serve.

How to make slow cooker chicken alfredo lasagna

What Jarred Alfredo Sauce is Best?

I prefer store-bought  Alfredo Sauce that’s kept in the refrigerated section, as opposed to the jarred variety. It tastes more homemade and fresh to me.

How Long Are The Leftovers Good For?

After the meal is completely cooled down, you can store it in an airtight container and place it in the fridge for up to 5 days. You can reheat it in the oven at a low temp or in the microwave until it’s been heated through.

Best Bacon Alfredo Pizza recipe

What else can I add to this bacon pizza?

Adding some cooked shredded chicken to the top of this chicken would be a great way to use it up and add a new flavor to the yumminess. You can also add diced tomatoes, onions, or whatever else that you think might taste good.

Is Alfredo sauce the same as white pizza sauce?

They’re incredibly similar and can be used interchangeably. The biggest difference is that white sauce contains more seasonings and less cheese while alfredo sauce is mainly Parmesan cheese-based.

Best Bacon Alfredo Pizza recipeCan Alfredo bacon pizza be prepped in advance?

Yes. You can make the pizza dough ahead of time and store it in the fridge, in an airtight container. Then when you’re ready to make your pizza you can set it on the counter to come to room temperature for about 20 minutes before using as directed.

You can also completely assemble the pizza and wrap it in plastic wrap and store it in the fridge for up to a day before baking and using, giving you a good chance to meal prep.
