  • After 4 hours, whisk softened cream cheese and cream of chicken soup together in a bowl. Pour over chicken; stir in mushrooms. Cover and cook on Low for 1 additional hour.

  • Fill a large pot with lightly salted water and bring to a rolling boil over high heat. Once the water is boiling, stir in the spaghetti, and return to a boil. Cook the pasta uncovered, stirring occasionally, until the pasta has cooked through, but is still firm to the bite, about 12 minutes. Drain well in a colander set in the sink.

  • To serve, spoon chicken and sauce over hot cooked pasta and sprinkle with parsley.

Partner Tip

Try using a Reynolds® slow cooker liner in your slow cooker for easier cleanup.

This was yummylicious and so easy that my 15 yr. old said he wanted to try to make it! WARNING: Please do not add seasoned salt as the other reviewer suggested until you make the recipe as directed! This was seasoned perfectly as written. Added the minced garlic to the dressing and poured over breasts moving them slightly to make sure they're nicely coated. Cooked chicken 4 hrs. as directed and mine were actually done by that time. Softened the cream cheese in microwave for 30 sec. in a bowl and then blended the soup. Took the chicken out and poured the soup mixture in the crockpot w/ the juice from the chicken mixing thoroughly and then replaced the chicken back. OMGsh it was so good that we didn't even wait for me to cook the noodles. Anyway saved the rest for the next day and it reheated beautifully. Maybe I'll be able to actually get some noodles cooked to go w/ it today--LOL! Read More

This was OK. I found the sauce to be very soupy (not thick enough) and also nothing like alfredo. Read More

I've been making this chicken for years with a few minor changes. No water is needed. DON'T add any extra salt as a previous reviewer suggested it'll be WAY too salty. Sometimes I'll splash in a little white wine at the end and I use sliced mushrooms not chopped. We serve it over egg noodles and the whole family loves it. It's delicious and yes rich but you don't eat like this all the time! Read More

This was wonderful. I made a few changes though. I used cream of chicken and mushroom soup instead and fresh mushrooms. I also added a bit of water to the sauce for a but thinner sauce. When dropping the chicken in crockpot make sure to season the meat as well with a bit of seasoning salt. My kids loved this over pasta with a big green salad. Read More

I made this for dinner last night with only a few changes and my picky family loved it! I didn't have a garlic clove so I mixed in 1/4 tsp of granulated garlic with the dressing mix/water. I added mushroom soup instead of chicken because I did not have mushrooms. For the last hour of cooking I shredded the chicken and added more water to make more of a gravy. It turned out beautifully and was delicious over noodles. I even used nonfat cream cheese and thought overall it was a pretty healthy and delicious recipe with no butter oil or cheese needed like the traditional alfredo! Thanks for a yummy keeper! Read More

Going to have to agree with everyone here and say the sauce was the real show stopper. Creamy and so full of flavor. I'm a garlic junkie and actually used a handful of cloves and I used fat free cream cheese and low fat or fat free...can't remember which...cream of chicken soup to make it a little less fattening. Turned out great. I also used a bunch of fresh mushrooms...many more than 4.5 ounces as my boyfriend and I both love them. Also added cracked black pepper to taste and topped with shaved Parmesan cheese. This dinner was so easy...will definitely be making again. Read More

This was good my kids (4 and 6) both liked it. This is a ton of sauce though. I don't like real 'saucy' dishes so I would make this recipe for about 2 LBS of spaghetti next time. This time I dished it up separately cooked spaghetti then dribbled with sauce. When we were done I cooked up lots more spaghetti to combine with the sauce before storing leftovers. Changes I made to recipe: -Used only 2 chicken breasts -Removed chicken from cooking liquid and set aside then mixed in soup/crm cheese for sauce. -Diced chicken and returned it to cooking sauce. -Added 1 cup green peas to sauce next time will add more.

Thank you for this simple recipe. It's very quick and gives me the husband an opportunity to show his culinary prowess. I made no variations other than an accidental switch from cream of chicken to cream of mushroom (purchased the wrong can at the store). Read More
