Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti Recipe is one of those easy crockpot meals that only needs bread, salad or nothing at all to quickly have dinner on the table.
If you are like me, you are skeptical of cooking pasta in the crockpot. Trust me - this works like a charm! And, it saves getting another boiler dirty.
I love, love love a one pot meal - especially when it is this easy and delicious!
A crockpot, also known as slow cooker, is one of those kitchen appliances that every kitchen needs!
Talk about a lifesaver - for those hectic and busy days, nothing beats a good crockpot meal.

Tips for Making Crockpot Chicken Spaghetti
- Any pasta can be used for this recipe - gluten free, whole wheat, rice and regular.
- Be sure to give a quick stir to break up all the pasta noodles before covering it for the remaining cooking time.
- Any spaghetti sauce works well with this recipe so use your favorite.
While this recipe can be used completely on its own without any side dishes, here are a few suggestions if you want to add something more:
- Salad - A spring mix that is already washed and ready to eat is great! Or, here is one of my favorites - Feta with Toasted Pecans and Raisins
- If you want to learn to make your own salad dressings be sure to check out How to Make Salad Dressing. Other delicious dressing recipes to try are Green Goddess Dressing Recipe, Best Ever Homemade Ranch Dressing and Raisin Vinaigrette
- Bread - Of course, French bread is always a hit with spaghetti but, why not try sourdough bread or even Carrot Muffins.
