Slow-Cooker Cajun Chicken Pasta

Slow-Cooker Cajun Chicken Pasta created by Tee Lee

From Sandra Lee Slow-Cooker Recipes. Chicken breast pieces are slow-cooked in a cajun alfredo sauce with tomatoes and red bell peppers, then served over pasta. ***After making this again, I do agree with the reviews that this is much too watery. I will leave the original recipe posted as-is since it is from a cookbook, but I recommend leaving out the chicken broth.

    Liked, but wasn't in love. Dish was easy to make. I forgot to buy peppers at the store so that was omitted, and didn't have 'Cajun seasoning' but had Tony Chachere's so used that. I was lazy and shredded the chicken in the crock pot and my husband didn't like that but besides that it pretty good.

    I make this all the time now at least 2 times a month its great for football Sundays or in my house Hockey night Saturday easy and good.. I have used almost every type of pasta but bow tie I like penne..

    I made this about a month ago and my husband and I really liked it! I did follow some of the changes that others suggested. I didn't use any chicken broth and I used the frozen 3 pepper and onions mix that I had in the freezer. I also added a little more cajun spice. It was so good that I'm going to make it again tonight!!!

    I didn't use any broth and this turned out great. This is almost a duplicate of Garfield's, only missing mushrooms, pepperoni, and grilled chicken. I added pepperoni slices to mine. Perfection and I didn't have to pay restaurant prices!

    I made this recipe and was extremely disappointed in the sauce. I don't like jarred Alfredo, so opted to make my own quick version (whole milk thickened on stove w/ flour + 1 c. parmesan), and added this to the broth, undrained tomatoes, etc. The chicken was great, but the sauce was like water. I ended up straining out the chicken, peppers, and tomato bits, then mixed this with red sauce I had on hand. This new version was actually really good. I liked the overall idea of the recipe, but will make changes next time.
