How to make Slow Cooker Chicken Alfredo
Step 1: Using paper towels, pat dries the chicken breasts and season with salt, pepper, and a sprinkle of garlic powder. Quickly sear the chicken on each side in olive oil over high heat.
Step 2: To a slow cooker, add the chicken breasts, heavy cream, chicken broth, butter, garlic cloves, and a tsp of kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper. Set on low for 4 hours or 2 to 3 hours on high until the internal temperature of the chicken reached 165 degrees.
Step 3: Take the chicken from the slow cooker and set it aside. Once the chicken is cool, slice them.
Step 4: To the slow cooker, stir in a cup of hot water and add the uncooked penne pasta. Put the lid on, seal, and cook for about 30 minutes on high until the pasta is just tender.
Step 5: Stir in the Parmesan cheese, shredded chicken, with more salt and black pepper once the pasta is tender.
