Did you cut up the chicken before or after cooking? In the picture the chicken looks cut up, but there is no mention of it in the directions. Just wondering because I know that can effect cooking time.
Ashley I cut it up after the cooking.. Thanks for the question, and Happy Crocking!
Is the pasta cooked before adding to the crockpot?
Hello Tricia, It all depends on if you like your pasta a little crunchy and not real soft. My family likes it crunchy, so I just dump it in uncooked, but if you like it softer, I would prepare it according to the package, BUT DON’T COOK IT ALL THE WAY DONE! Otherwise it may be mushy. Great question, and thanks for posting. Happy Crocking!.
I tried this today. My little one loved it, and my husband and I thought it was ok. We used fresh broccoli and it seemed like it had a very overpowering broccoli taste. Plus, it still had a flour taste.
Do you think the fresh broccoli made it overpowering? I might eliminate the flour next time and use a different vegetable like green peas.
That is a good question Mary… With the way you described the taste, it could be the broccoli, but I love broccoli, so I would make it with your stated alterations, but please post back as other Facebook Friends will want to hear how your changes turned out. Happy Crocking!
I cut the chicken before cooking, added 1 3/4 cups of cheese & 2 cups of pasta. My kids loved it!!! It’s a good recipe. Thanks Crock Pot Girl.
How does this qualify for the “slimmer simmer” section??? 24 grams of fat and 875 calories?
Angie, thanks for bringing this to my attention, as I have modified the post.
Hi! I made this recipe last night! It turned out great!! My husband loved it but did recommend to use half a can of cream of broccoli and maybe a half can more of cream of chicken.. he said the broccoli was a bit too strong. So we will try that next time.. but thank you so much for this great recipe!!
Hi! I’m looking forward to making this recipe sometime in the future, but I’m going to remove the mushrooms (not a fan). I might also add a little more cheese. Thanks for posting!
